Here’s how to make sure your  Android smartphone information is backed up to Google Drive and can be restored if needed. Go to Settings. Scroll down to Backup and Restore.

 

Turn Backup my data on. I’d also suggest turning on Automatic restore. That way if an app is reinstalled, all of the data will be restored.

To back up all the photos on your phone automatically. Open the Google Photos App. This is a great feature, because you have an unlimited backup of your photos, just in case something happens to your phone.

The first time you open the photos app, it will prompt you to backup to the cloud. All you have to do is turn it on.

The Google Drive app is great not only for backing up but for transferring large files and sharing with others. It’s also where you’ll store any files created with the Google Office Suite.

This is the same Google Drive you can access from your computer.

This is a simple way to keep your data secure in case something happens to your device.
