Telegram backup is so important issue for those who are worried about losing their information.

For example, you want to save your chat detail in the word file or export it to another format on the memory.

Telegram users can share messages, images, videos, and documents encrypted.

It is officially available for Android, Windows Phone, and iOS, and users can exchange messages, photos, videos, and files for up to 1.5 GB.

One of the problems with Telegram messenger is you are unable to create a backup from chats! but don’t worry every problem has a solution.

Sometimes you may mistakenly delete chat of TFelegram messages or lose them for other reasons.

When this happens you will see how it is difficult to back up your chats again or maybe you forget at all.

Because Telegram has no backup option and you have to do it manually.

I am Jack Ricle from Telegram Adviser team and in this article, I want to show how you can create a backup file from all your chat data.

Stay with me until the end, and send us your comment to provide better services.

What Is Telegram Backup?

Telegram Backup is a feature in the Telegram messaging app that allows users to create backups of their chats and media files and store them in the cloud.

This can be useful for several reasons, such as if you switch devices or if you want to have a copy of your chats and media in a secure location.

To create a backup on Telegram, you can go to the “Settings” menu and then tap on the “Backup” option.

From there, you can choose which chats and media you want to include in the backup and then tap on the “Start Backup” button to begin the process.

You can also schedule regular backups to be created automatically.

To create a Telegram backup, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Telegram app on your device.
  2. Tap on the “Settings” icon, which looks like a gear.
  3. Tap on the “Backup” option.
  4. In the “Backup Settings” menu, you can choose which chats and media you want to include in the backup. You can also choose whether to include secret chats in the backup.
  5. Once you have selected the chats and media you want to include, tap on the “Start Backup” button to begin the process.
  6. You will see a progress bar indicating the progress of the backup. Once the backup is complete, it will be stored in the cloud.

Note: You can also schedule regular backups to be created automatically by toggling the “Scheduled Backups” switch and setting the frequency at which you want the backups to be created.

3 Methods To Create a Full Backup From Telegram

  • Print your chat history.
  • Create a full backup from the Telegram desktop version.
  • Use the “Save Telegram Chat History” google chrome extension.

First Method: Copy And Paste Chat Texts, Then Print Them.

The easiest way to create a backup of your Telegram chat history is to copy and paste your message.

In this way, you should open your Telegram account on the desktop (windows) and then select all (CTRL+A) and then press (CTRL+C) to copy your all mintages into the clipboard and then paste them into a word file.

Now you can print it. Notice that in this method maybe you will have trouble because maybe your chat history is so long! in this case, use another way to create a backup and export your chat history.

Second Method: Create a full backup from the Telegram desktop version.

In the latest version of Telegram that was released for desktop (windows), you can create a full backup from your Telegram account easily with many options.

Users that have an older version of Telegram for PC will not see this option in the setting so first you must update the app or download the latest version.

Follow these steps: Setting –> Advanced –> Export Telegram Data

You can customize the Telegram backup file. let’s know these options.

Contacts List: This is the option used for backup Telegram contacts (phone numbers and contacts name).

Personal Chats: this will save all your private chats to the file.

Bot Chats: All messages that you sent to Telegram robots will also be stored in the backup file.

Private Groups: To archive chat history from private groups that you joined.

Only my Messages: This is a subcategory option for the “Private Groups” option and if you enable it, only messages you have sent to private groups will be saved in the backup file, and messages from other users in the groups will not be included.

Private Channels: All messages that you have sent to private channels will be stored in the Telegram backup file.

Animated GIF: Enable this option if you want to backup all animated GIFs too.

Files: Use this option to backup all files that you have downloaded and uploaded. below this option is a slider that can set the volume limit for the desired file. for example, if you set the volume limit to 8 MB, the files which are less than 8 MB will be included and larger files will ignore. if you want to save all file information, drag the slider to the end to save all the files.

Active Sessions: To store active session data that are available on your current account.

Miscellaneous Data: Save all remaining information that didn’t exist in the previous options.

This file can be in HTML or JSON format, I recommend selecting HTML. finally, click on the “EXPORT” button and wait for the telegram backup to complete.
