How to Restore GBWhatsApp Backup to GBWhatsApp Manually?
If you’re getting a new Android phone and want to transfer your GBWhatsApp chats, follow these simple steps to recover your old messages:
Step 1: Find the Backup File
First things first, locate the backup file of your GBWhatsApp chats. You can usually find it in your phone’s internal storage, specifically in a folder named “GBWhatsApp.” The file itself will likely have a name like “GBWhatsApp backup [Date] [Time].crypt12.”
Step 2: Install GBWhatsApp
On your new phone, install GBWhatsApp. Once the installation is complete, open the GBWhatsApp app.
Step 3: Access Settings
In the GBWhatsApp app, tap the three dots menu located at the top-right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Navigate to Chat Settings
From the menu that appears, select “Settings,” and then choose the “Chats” option.
Step 5: Initiate Chat Backup
In the “Chats” section, click on “Chat Backup.”
Step 6: Start the Restoration
You’ll now see the “Restore” option. Tap on “Restore” to kickstart the restoration process.
Step 7: Detection and Restoration
GBWhatsApp will automatically search for the backup file. If it finds it, your chats will be restored without any hassle. However, if the backup file isn’t automatically detected, you can use the “Select backup file” option to manually locate it.
Step 8: Complete the Restoration
Once the backup file is detected, click on “Restore” again to begin the restoration process. Before proceeding, ensure that you’re using the same phone number you used for the backup. Also, avoid making any changes to the app’s name or folder, as this could prevent detection by GBWhatsApp.
That’s it! Your chats will soon be back on your new Android phone, making your transition smooth and worry-free.
