How do I create my hike Cloud backup?

1. Tap on the "Me" tab from hike home screen.

 

 

2. Tap on the "Settings" tab.

 

3. Tap on "Account"

 

4. Tap on  "Backup Account"

 

5. You will see the below mentioned screen. Tap “Back up Now” to Google Drive and set up the backup frequency to your liking. 

 

6. You will be prompted to select a Google account that you will backup your chat history to. If you do not have a Google account, tap Add account when prompted. Please remember the Google account you are using for the backup.

 

7. Tap Back up over to choose the network you wish to use for backup. Please note that backing up over cellular data may result in additional data charges.

 

That's it. Please wait for some time and let the backup finish. It might take couple of minutes to hours depending on your backup file size and WiFi/Cellular speed. If you encounter any issues, please write to us at Support@hike.in.

    Its not working, I am unable to find the google drive backup option in the hike messenger. I want to restore hike backup from google drive. Hike is not supporting automatically restore backup from google drive. And it is not showing the drive backup option.

    It only creates local backup. There is no such tab as hike is now updated so kindly update this answer also.

    My backup was created at hike cloud and not on google drive. I have my old chat backup file and i am unable to restore my chats from that file. i have tried reinstalling also after reinstallation it only shows restoring from hike cloud but i want to restore from my local back up and now there is no option of resetting account, why are you doing all these please focus on core objects (chatting) and try to make that better rather than focussing on explore section (news, horroscope, showbiz and all that nonsense).
