Some folks may not even know that SMS Backup is even possible.
Most folks rely on their SMS messages for communication.
Hence, having a backup is essential for preserving important information.
Dear Samsung Galaxy device owners, you can use a software created by Samsung to backup your messages.
This Software is known as Samsung SmartSwitch. To use this software, follow these steps accordingly:
Download Samsung SmartSwitch
Firstly, Download Samsung SmartSwitch free from HERE.
The App is available for both Windows and Mac OS.

This App is designed for transferring to a new device. But you also can use it to create backups.
You won’t be able to actually read your SMS after Backup. Unless they are restored to a device.
Install Samsung SmartSwitch
Start the installer after downloading SmartSwitch.
Then, follow the prompts to install Smart Switch. Users can leave the installation settings at their default.

Backup Your Device
Click the ‘Backup’ button, and Smart Switch will begin backing up your device. Including your SMS messages.
Lastly, please remember that this may take a while to complete.
Your backup files will be stored in the ‘Documents’ folder. Because its the default folder for saving this file.
This can be changed by clicking the ‘More’ button and choosing ‘Preferences’.
These Steps should be able to guide you when you come across a situation where you have to do some backup. Or you want to change your current device to another.
