Why is a complete Backup of WhatsApp needed?
If you know what backup means and why should we reserve a back up for everything, then you can simply skip this part and scroll down to our main heading regarding how to take a backup on WhatsApp. If you are interested to know about this, let’s move on friend:)
Backup is a very important aspect if you are doing anything related to any operating system and software. As we all know, future is unpredictable. We don’t know what will happen in future regarding our Application or OS. So for preventing from any kind of future circumstances, we will take a backup.
Suppose if you are in a conversation with your friend, sharing some important information or doing any work for which you send continuous updates to your friend through Whats App in the form of text, images or video. But suddenly, your WhatsApp app is crashed showing “working stopped” popup. Then you restarted it and it is crashing every time.
For resolving this problem, you re-install WhatsApp application from playstore. You opened it and now it is working fine. But suddenly, you found that all your chats, conversations, media files and databases had been lost. At that time, you didn’t take any single backup. At that time, you will be like:- “what is this mess? Where is my all data gone? How to recover it?”.
For prevention of these type of cases, a complete WhatsApp back up is needed which will be saved to your Android system storage or google drive. We will further discuss this, later on, now, let’s get to our main content.

You can generate and save back up in 2 places, one on your Android device storage and another one on Your google drive account which can also be called as Google WhatsApp backup.
If you want to save your backup on your cloud storage due to onboard storage issues, then I will refer you to save a backup on google drive. You just have to connect google drive account with WhatsApp using your Gmail ID and take a Google WhatsApp backup.

It means that a complete backup of your WhatsApp account will be automatically generated and saved without any hassle. But how? Here’s your answer:-
When you are on the 4th step, where you are generating a backup, There, if you just take a look, you will find an option named “back up to Google Drive”.
