Plugin that allows to disable Backup on Android devices.

All Android applications with an operating system equal to or higher than Android 6.0 have Auto Backup automatically enabled.

The reason for this is due to the android: allowBackup attribute, which enables/disables the backup (which has the default value true in outystems-android projects, since it is omitted from the AndroidManifest.xml file).

<app ... android: allowBackup = "true"> </app>

If this attribute is active (with the value True) it can cause problems with the cleaning of Local Storage, since it will be automatically restored whenever the application is reinstalled. 

This property allows an attacker to back up application data even without using a rooted device.

If you don't want this default behavior on Android, you can disable Auto Backup.
