Reviews From google play store

👎⛔PoS app how could you corrupt my backup on SD card?! It says wrong password now but it was always the same password. If i wasnt forced to encrypt in the first place maybe it wouldn't have bugged out. Missing photos and video on top of that when selecting restoring options. Terrible app, can't trust these apps for big backups. Hopefully I had also made a backup with Hisuite and not SD card only. Wish you the worst.

Having the same problem as others here, namely being told that I must update through Google Play Store, which tells me I have the current version. I'll update the review if I figure out what the issue is. Not very happy, though, as I want to backup and reset my phone. 9/23/19 UPDATE: The app is working now. I noticed that there was a difference in version between the PC and the Phone. I uninstalled the software from both the phone and PC, then rebooted both. Then I went to the website and installed the previous version of Huawei Backup on my PC and connected the phone. The PC installed the software onto the phone and it worked again. Now it's working fine, so I'm updating my review to reflect 4 stars, which is above average. I have not yet had to use the software to recover my phone data, so until I can do that, I won't know enough to be able to give it 5 stars.

The previous Hisuite version refused to backup or restore my data, saying I first needed to update Huawei Backup, despite the fact that Huawei Backup was already up to date. Now they have fixed the problem. Huawei Backup is useful, but has serious limitations by design: 1) It is now mandatory to set a password; this is NOT an improvement. 2) No way to create app data backups where files retain their original format an folder structure. 3) No incremental backups.

Not recommended to use it, untill existing issue is not resolved. Experienced, very much bad. The new update which has been released on 30 Sep 19 is very much bad. Now icon of the app is no longer available. Then how a user can backup his sms, calls or other apps etc on SD Card? Whereas, there is only option to backup his data on Google drive, which is not recommended by everyone. So resolve this issue immediately, please.

Was a great app - easy and strong - but getting worse recently. 1. Please bring back the option to back up without encryption. I want to be able to get back at least some of my data even without Huawei device / app. 2. Please bring back the desktop icon. It's really annoying to search for the backup app throughout the settings.

I bought this Huawei cellphone about 4 months ago but wasn't sure which backup to use. The backup that came with the phone or the manufacturer's backup. On 09/16/2019 my phone automatically backed itself up using the manufacturer's app. Oddly, it states that I needed to create a login before using which of course I didn't. If I needed to create a login, why did it do it automatically? I've been suspicious of my cellphone ever since because of the reputation they've gotten recently because of all

Excellent and does what it must as described. Well done Huawei. I am upset that photos from gallery and other related photographic data can't be backed up to cloud as it says "not available in your country/region". Please get this up and running. I'd like to be able to synchronize all my photos across all my Huawei devices and computer through Huawei instead of doing manual and Google drive backups. Please see into this. I'm from South Africa.

So now I can't do a backup as the option to choose where to backup to, e. G. My SD card, doesn't appear any longer. UPDATE: I uninstalled the app from the play store screen, reinstalled it and presto! - the functionality returned - until I updated the update at which point the options to update to external storage or SD card disappeared again. Dumb.

Was fine until the forced encryption of data. Now I can't access the backed up photos on my PC as I used to do before. The PC Opens the previous back up photos fine but will not open the new backups. Please take the enforced encryption off and revert back to the optional version. Deleted and reinstalled as requested. Still forcing the password and unable to view the backed up photo files on the PC like the previous version. PLEASE REVERT BACK TO THE ORIGINAL OPTIONAL PASSWORD VERSION.

I upgraded to version Icon removed on home screen. Very bad idea. Very hard now to find the backup program. Finally found it in settings>apps>Huawei Backup. The program will not open now to do a backup. Who was the idiot that made these changes. Please Change back the way it was before. I am now unable to backup my phone

I almost lost my whatsapp data because of this stupid update I made a backup of the whole phone then factory reset .. Then restore But it did not restore whatsapp data only the apk package showing this stupid message : "some apps (such as banking apps) may crash, freeze or encounter other issues when their data is restored blah blah blah" and after a very hard struggle i downgraded to the very first version before and it worked well So fix this issue

Earlier today I uninstalled back to factory setting twice and restarted this device so that the icon came back and I could run a backup. But then this app update removed the icon for the app and now I cannot run backup. Now I will fix it again, and not update the app, hopefully you can fix the bug?

I backed up all of my data from internal to sd card 15gig worth.. Backup completed successfully and then i reset my phone to factory.. After startup and updating app i found that no backup was done or is detected whatsoever... Great app this. Lost all my stuff...

Backed up to my NAS. Now can't read the data on the NAS. I can't therefore verify the backup before deleting my photos etc. How can I verify? There needs to be the ability to explore backup files...

App appears unworkable on phone. Can find it through settings, apps, but then no options to backup or select a storage location. Permissions just comes up with 'no permissions' and no options to select any. Very poor, please sort.

I have to reinstall hisuite each time I want to backup my phone. It keeps telling me to allow debugging, which I already have and doesn't pick up my phone when connected vi's USB. Pointless. It wasn't this difficult using Samsung.

after the update... i can't find the app in my phone. moreover, in google playstore there is only uninstall button is appears. So how will I use the app if i can't even open it or there is no option to open it. before the update the app was fine. I don't know what to do. so much frustrated.

2 days ago I sent my phone to fix, so I had to use Huawei Backup to external storage and did factory reset. When I got my phone back, I restored. Almost all apps came back, but photos and documents can't be read. They are in unrecognized format. What should I do? Are they broken or are they still encrypted? The password was correct, but files can't be read.

Don't ever use this app guys, it doesn't backup some of your data, including apps, pics, videos, and contacts etc. I lost a lot of data.

Decision made by myself not to use it. I'll update this but never trust any app with any photos. I save all vital information,files,images on three remote hard drives,safer better and no internet hacks can steal them.

Cannot sync phone and laptop. Ever since the last update, I cannot get my phone to connect to hisuite on my laptop. I have uninstalled and reinstalled hisuite on my laptop.

New version is bad. App icon is no longer available. I know I can restore data in Settings but it's ridiculous. I wanna back it.

Why is this app not in my homescreen?! I got panic when i saw this app isn't in my homescreen. I often backup my phone but since the app is not there, i can't open the app and backup anymore idk how to do this please help!! I use Huawei Honor 7s 😭

The last version of this app is so bad. I can't do backup or restore my old data. Please remove this update and return to the previous version.

Useless job done. As I can't clear my Huawei drive. Or send files to Google cloud. I cannot even what's on there.

After updating my mobile y7 prime 2018 Huawei backup is not working. I don't know what's wrong with this please tell me if anyone knows the solution.

Keeps saying my cloud is full, wants me to pay for storage but I can't access it to delete anything from it or even view what it has already filled it up with.

Don,t use this update with obligatory encryptation. I couldn't recover my data despite i am sure from password except when i downgrade to previous version from apk file.

Pathetic can't restore my data no app icon can't find it in settings... Wastage of time stupid app. I need my data now give me alternative app to restore my critical data I'm using HUAWEI Y5 useless phone

New update is no good Application doesn't show when installed. Please fix it. Only uninstall option show open option doesn't

Stupid password requirement, should be optional. (oh, and yeah, update log is: Bug fix.. yeah.. sure..)

Please remove the set password feature or just made it not compulsory because i don't want to set password on my backup. I don't care for security reason.

my backup password is not working. I dont know why as i had set the keyword as a hint but still it is not working. Please help me out i cannot afford to loose my stuff

Not working. I have had it downloaded for months, now it says beta is full? I can't transfer anything to my computer without it! Suddenly I can't use it anymore?

Can't backup in internal, fix this. Review from Huawei CUN-U29.

I can't open this app. Untill last update it worked perfect. Now i can't even open the app.. Plz help me to solve this problem.

I love the fact that now this option will only be seen in the Settings menu. Would be great to "kill" the bloatware this way with all the applications.

Nice one,it keeps all app and documents safe. I'm loving this app. Thumbs up to the developer's.

Not reliable. No support for smb2 protocol, only deprecated and unsecure smb1

Good service no problems with the app at all

I can't backup and all my data to NAS storage

Backup application has disappeared from my application and its not visible, it happened when i updated it for the last time. Edited ; No problem, I forcely installed old version as system app through lucky patcher 😊

Where is the backup app? All I have is back up to drive and I want to be able to backup to SD card.

Taking the icon away SUX ...In fact requiring access to wifi and allowing this app to install other apps SUX...

I don't know it works in other phones but in huawei phones it's great

Cannot start the app, the icon is missing

People, back up with Google drive and that's it work like a charm. Everything I back up without problems. I'm. Using Huawei mate 20X 👍 is a beast.

Convenient for friends to share Experience and Common hobbies with me

Another system app that you cannot remove.

Bad experience becausethis cell is slow and hang

Good app to backup and safe

IT Doesn't show up on my huawei y6 pro 2019

BACKUP icon does not exist on the main screen, but it is available in Settings.. Anyway it is not good.. Also can not shrink photo to adjust on a home screen.. Also u cannot remove icons from the main display, you have to slide it.. HOW TO GET BACK MY DATA FROM LAPTOP FROM H. SUITE FROM PREVIOUS HUAWEI WICH I HAD. SAME TIPE WAS... BUT LIMITED EDITION.. I CAN NOT CONNECT EVEN I'M FOLLOWING THE STEPS.???!!!!!

Very good huawei mobile signal

Unable to backup after updating HiSuite. Always getting message 'update backup from play store' though it is latest version. So many people are complaining about this backup issue but it's falling on deaf ears of Huawei. I am using Huawei Mate S with EMUI 3.1 & android version 5.1.1. I want to buy new mobile & unable to backup my data.

Please make app visible on Home screen I don't like the latest update

not able to get latest back up as per the hi suite, it asks me to install from google [play, but the app is upto i cant back up now!!!!!! please fix this issue as soon as possible ... i need to back up my phone. when can we sexpect an update. i noticed that other users are having thew same issue.. so there are a lot of frustrated peoplde out there.... shame that huawei donot seem to be rushing to fix the issue..........hi suite has always worked well in the past and on;ly recently stopped working correctly

This is a great functionality.

So quick and appropriate

No icon a pain. Backs not in the /huawaibackup folder. No idea where they are. Tells me a fresh back up that all apks backed up are old vers. Can't restore. Gone back to an old copy of ver 7... Slowly updated thru to 9..all good. Not going to 10

This installed onto my phone wtthout my permission. Doesn't show up in my app list in settings to uninstall. Here on Play Store has NO UNINSTALL BUTTON! Why? UPDATE It finally installed for real without my permission or any way to stop it. Happy ending. Now there is an uninstall button so I uninstalled this bloatware. Like we need a millionth "cloud" scraping and mining...

The system can be swiftly handled.

I have used this app because it was easy and quick. Now I need to locate the icon because it was removed from the home screen and need to set a password. I guess it is time to find some other app to backup my data.

One star is generous. App does not work no matter what I try. I have updated, un-installed, re-installed and still get the error that I need to install the latest version of Backup!! Huawei support have not been able to solve the problem and keep telling me to do what I have already done. This needs to be sorted out ! I enjoy my Huawei, but if this kind of garbage continues, its back to Samsung.

"Please download and install the latest Huawei Backup application from Google Play before using this feature" I've done that. 4 times. I'm amazed governments are worried Huawei is spying on them when they can't even get this right.

Wish I could give 0 stars. Latest HiSuite update says need to update Backup app on phone. Already have latest app. Seems this is yet another known problem with Huawei. As usual silence from Huawei, no fix on horizon. Genuinely sorry I ever tried Huawei

Wish I could give a zero rating... Cannot backup/connect my P10 to the latest Windows app no matter what I do. All settings set as required but app doesn't connect to phone at all, so I can't access/backup my data via HiSuite. Highly upset!!! Also can't seem to access it directly either, nor get it to backup via my WiFi. Next step laborious manual copying over of individual files to an SD card - I will NEVER buy a Huawei again!

I was able to retrieve my texts messages since 2013

Cloud account is full, decided to backup locally but I get the same "Install The Latest Version Of Backup" error as others. I've uninstalled, reinstalled and the error remains. So this app does NOTHING

Doesn't work. Very bad versions management. Tried on 3 fresh reseted and updated to emui 9.1.0 different mate 9 through hisuite but new version of hi suite asks to install newer Huawei backup on device, when latest available already installed. Many tries to get help from USA support were useless. They only repeated to make hard reset again and again.
