Signal works differently from WhatsApp or Telegram when it comes to saving conversations. The objective of this application is completely local. So when we go to backup and restore Signal chats, everything is stored on our device.
It is not at all complicated to make a backup of all our cats. Signal encrypts the backup with a password for security reasons. Even if someone picks up our phone, they will not have access to this copy unless they have the password.
It is important that you write down the password in a safe place where only you can enter it.
This option only appears when we reinstall the app. So if you want to restore all Signal chats, you will have to delete the app and download it again.
When finished, it will ask us if we want to restore the backup. We’re just going to have to click on “Restore Backup” and that’s it.
Since Signal’s backups are local, unlike other apps like WhatsApp. Many people have doubts on how to restore backup of Signal conversations to new phone.
It is not at all complicated. The only thing we’re going to have to do is upload the folder we’re doing the cloud backup to. It can be any cloud storage service. Then we download it to our new mobile phone and the process of restoring chats is exactly the same as we discussed above.
