Samsung Galaxy J7 V / J7 (2nd Gen.) - Turn Automatic App Restore On / Off

Note Notes:

  • 'Automatic restore' allows backed up settings and data to be automatically restored when an app is reinstalled.
  • When attempting to determine whether a third-party app is the cause of an operating system / app issue, ensure 'Automatic restore' is turned off prior to performing a factory data reset.


  1. From a Home screen, swipe up then navigate: Settings Settings icon > Accounts and backup > Backup and restore.
  2. Ensure the Back up my data switch is turned on On switch icon.
  3. Tap the Automatic restore switch to turn on On switch icon or off Off switch icon.
