Privacy Friendly Backup

Privacy Friendly Backup is an application that works with other privacy friendly apps to enable backups. The app allows you to create and manage backups. This includes importing backups into the app and exporting backups to external storage media. 
The Privacy Friendly Backup app communicates with other Privacy Friendly apps and extracts or injects data into and out of the app to enable the creation and restoration of backups.

The app provides encryption via an interface to another app that provides encryption as functionality via the openpgp-api. The user is free to choose their own encryption provider via the app's settings.
For encryption to work, the provider must be installed externally. We recommend OpenKeyChain, as this app is available in the regular PlayStore as well as in the F-Droid Store and is completely open source.

As with other privacy friendly apps, the app differs from other similar apps in the following ways:

  1. No permissions
    The Privacy Friendly Backup does not use any critical permissions
  2. No adertisement
    Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising which also shortens battery life.
  3. No user tracking
    Privacy Friendly Backup does not collect or relay any user data to others.
