Phone data is critical to us. We can replace the devices we use but not our data. We’ve been using CDs, USBs, and hard drives to save data before. With the advent of technology, we’ve come across cloud storage. Storages that we can access from anywhere and any number of times. All operating systems have data clouds that one can use to save pictures, videos, contacts, files, documents, text messages, call logs, and so on. So, to store data, applications like WhatsApp have their storage. Google apps also have cloud support that Google accounts can access on as many devices as they want.

How to recover data on Android devices?

It’s a disaster to lose phone data. One must back up regularly and restore when switching to a new device. However, your phone might break or you may delete something accidentally. Similarly when you want to recover data after performing a factory reset. When you end up in these kinds of situations, do not worry, Android has ways to store and restore data. Two of them are listed below.

Method 1. Recover lost data from local backup:

If you are lucky to have an android backup, you can restore it. To do so, follow these steps:
