How to save application data to your Huawei Y6

This section may be of particular interest to you if you plan to reboot, but want to keep the application data.

As you can deduce from the chapter “How to reset your Huawei Y6”, the backup of application data is a specific case.

We will show you below, ways to back up your app data.

The problem with backing up application data is that the way to save photos for example differs.

Thus, they can not simply be stored on an SD card or in the Google Cloud.

In addition, not all application developers save application settings in your backup account.

Storing data with backup applications

To back up your data, there are some applications.

To be able to use them without restriction, it is important to have root rights.

Refer to the “How to root your Huawei Y6” article to learn how to run such a process.

How to save app data on Huawei Y6

For this case, we recommend backup applications Titanium Backup and Helium that you can download for free from the Google Play Store.

Titanium Backup

With this app you can create and restore backups of user and system programs via your Huawei Y6, back up applications and their data, as well as SMS, MMS and wallpapers.

In addition, this app also shows you how much space remains on your device and allows you to schedule backups.

An application backup is often very complex, especially because you must have root privileges.

In what follows, we explain to you step by step how to launch a backup:

  • Download the app Titanium Backup on your Huawei Y6.

    You can also download the paid but faster version Titanium Backup PRO.

  • In order to make a backup with “Titanium Backup”, it is very important that the “Superuser” application with control over root access is up to date.

    So be sure first, if it is, otherwise please update.

  • Open “Titanium Backup” and click “Save / Restore”.

    Then all the applications installed on the device will be displayed.

  • Then, click on one of the listed applications you want to back up.
  • As a result, several options will appear.

    If you want to register an application, click on “Save”.

    You can also choose between “Freeze” and “Uninstall” options.

In addition, you can also use this application to perform automatic backup:

  • Go to the application menu of your Huawei Y6. Click “Back up all user applications.”
  • If you do not want to register either application, simply remove the check mark behind the corresponding app by clicking on it.

Restore apps and data:

  • Open the home page in the app on your Huawei Y6, then click “Restore.”
  • In the next step, select “Restore all applications and data”.
  • If you only want to restore some applications, you can select them.

Helium

To use this application, no need to have root rights.

However, there may be restrictions.

This application includes about the same features as the “Titanium Backup” application, that is, backing up applications, messages, contacts, bookmarks.

To back up your data, do the following:

  • Download the app Helium on your Huawei Y6.
  • Then please download Helium Desktop on the computer.
  • Open the application on your computer as well as on your Huawei Y6.
  • Connect your phone to the computer via a USB cable.

    The computer should detect your device itself.

  • Follow the instructions on your Huawei Y6.

    In the application on your phone, you can now make a selection of the application data you want to back up.

  • If you want to back up all applications, click “Mark All” instead of selecting them individually.
  • Finally, you can choose a storage location.

About cloud storage, which could be available from your Huawei Y6

Cloud gateways are a technology that can be used to more easily provide a “cloud” to a client.

This could be accessible from your Huawei Y6. For example, using the appropriate software, the store in the “cloud” can be provided to the client as a local drive on the computer.

Thus, working with data in the “cloud” for the client becomes absolutely transparent.

And if there is a good, fast connection to the “cloud”, the client may not even notice that it does not work with local data on the computer, but with data stored, perhaps, for many hundreds of kilometers from it. “Cloud gateways” are a technology that can be used to more easily provide a “cloud” to a client.

And if there is a good, fast connection to the “cloud”, the client may not even notice that it does not work with local data on the computer, but with data stored, perhaps, for many hundreds of kilometers from it.

Security in the storage and transfer of data is one of the main issues when working with the “cloud”, especially with respect to confidential and private data that may be stored in your Huawei Y6. For example, the provider has the ability to view customer data (if they are not protected by a password), which can also fall into the hands of hackers who managed to crack the provider’s security systems.

The reliability, timeliness and availability of data in the “cloud” depends very much on many intermediate parameters, such as: data transfer channels on the way from the client to the “cloud”, the reliability of the last mile, the quality of the client’s Internet provider, the availability of the “cloud” at a given time.

If the company providing the online store itself is liquidated, the client may lose all of its data.

The overall performance when working with data in the “cloud” from your Huawei Y6 can be lower than when working with local copies of data.

Subscription fee for additional features (increased amount of data storage, transfer of large files, etc.).

A word about GDPR if you use data on your Huawei Y6

You should bear the following regulation if you have data from other persons stored in your Huawei Y6.

Inversely, application owners have to give you control over your data.

Regulation No 2016/679, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is a regulation of the European Union which constitutes the reference text for data protection.

It strengthens and unifies data protection for individuals in the European Union.After four years of legislative negotiations, this regulation was definitively adopted by the European Parliament on 14 April 2016.

Its provisions are directly applicable in all 28 Member States of the European Union as of 25 May 2018.This regulation replaces the directive on the protection of personal data adopted in 1995 (Article 94 of the Regulation); contrary to the directives, the regulations do not imply that Member States adopt a transposition law to be applicable.The main objectives of the GDPR are to increase both the protection of the persons concerned by the processing of their personal data and the accountability of those involved in this processing.

These principles can be applied by increasing the power of regulatory authorities.

Conclusion

To conclude, we can say that root privileges are an asset for backing up application data.
