it's possible it is only on knox enabled devices. looks like m31 does not have it.


tbh it's not really that big of a deal. the problem with whatsapp is not that it is stealing information from your other apps like a malware app. i am pretty sure android these days is locked enough not to let it happen easily.

I did test it with same number. I had my backup on mmc in Realme xt, sold the phn, got Poco and put the same mmc, same sim card. Tried to restore with the same key... won't restore.
I've carried Signal messages between three devices now and the backup/restore has worked both times for me. It also worked moving between my mother's old and new phones. Are you sure you copied down the code/entered it correctly?

Yeah absolutely... I did a trial of the backup on my original backup phone (XT) and then when I migrated to Poco X3 with same MMC, it failed trying to recover.
Will give it another try since it worked for you..

Edit: can't do that... Seems like I deleted the old backup since it was not working..😤
If it's working for you, then it's good news. I must have done something wrong at my end.

Not particularly impressed by that guys analysis in that link. But like he says
You might choose to disagree and that okay. It’s the difference of opinions that brings different ideas to fruition and prevents one open-source project to hold monopoly in the market.

We need to see what each app offers and then use/modify our use accordingly. No single app would provide all what a person needs. Each of the above mentioned apps are created with specific use-case, people in mind. Whatsapp with its new approach has finally given the nudge to what should have been done long time.. choosing apps which best meets your requirements.

In my case, I will use all 3 for sometime, when I am done with WA will throw it away.

When I tried to move my cousins WhatsApp group to Telegram, one of my cousins she put a very stiff resistance “kya mera data leke karega Zuckerberg uncle? I have nothing to hide, my life is open book bla bla bla” My mom has just started using WhatsApp. It would be impossible to make her switch and re-learn Telegram.
