You will be requested to provide a password and repeat to confirm it. The rest of the process is straightforward: you can send your backup to an email which belongs to you; or to someone in your Address book.

Restore a backup

Basically, this process is straightforward as well. Remember that you have to create backup options: store your backups locally on an SD card; or send them via email.

On the home screen of the app, click/tap Restore a backup. The newly appeared screen prompts you to restore from storage or from email.

Restore from storage

A message of success notifies you that process is completed.

Restore from email

You actually need to store your backup copy from the selected email address. The user interface will prompt you to search for the downloaded backup attachment on your device storage.
