You may back up your phone’s content, data, and settings to your Google Account. You can restore your backed-up data to the original phone or to a number of other Android devices. When you set up a personal device with a professional profile or for work only, or when you set up a company-owned device, you can’t use back up.
The process of restoring data differs depending on the phone and Android version. A backup from a higher Android version cannot be restored to a phone running a lower Android version.
Activate automatic backups.
Instead of a swipe or Smart Lock, use a PIN, pattern, or password screen lock to further protect your backed-up data.

Data and settings should be backed up manually:
1. Go to Settings on your phone.
2. Select Backup from the System menu. If these instructions don’t match your phone’s settings, look for a backup in your settings app or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
3. Return to the previous screen and then proceed.
After you’ve backed up, you should erase everything:

When you connect your Google Account to a phone that has already been set up, it syncs with everything you’ve already backed up for that Google Account.
Follow the on-screen instructions to restore a backed-up account to a new phone.
Google Photographs already has copies of your photos and videos. However, while setting up your new phone for the first time or after a factory reset, you can restore the rest of the data you saved up. Follow the on-screen instructions during setup to restore your data.
