As of now you're using BunkM on your phone, which means that all the attendance records are stored locally on your phone. However, what if:
- you switch to anothe phone temporarily or buy a new one?
- you send your phone for repairs and the handset company formats your phone?
- you accidentaly delete the application or factory reset your phone?
- you lose your attendance data in a manner not described in this list? :P
With the new backup system in place, you can sync your attendance information to the BunkM web server and retrieve it directly from your phone if you lose your existing data.
