There are many reasons why users create backups on WhatsApp Business. For example, if you want to change devices, or your device gets damaged or any unexpected event happens, you could lose everything you have on your phone, important or not. You do not have to worry though, because it will always be possible to recover the information, thanks to the cloud, a place that allows you to save everything you hold dear on WhatsApp Business via Google Drive and iCloud.
The most interesting element is the possibility of creating a backup, but also of “restoring one directly to WhatsApp Business”. This means that all information on your account will be restored as if nothing had happened. A negative element to be found during this process is that, although there are copies, these are not always updated 100% since you decide when and if to do so.
