You can disconnect your phone from computer at this point, but if Android resets the changes Helium has made each time it starts up, you will need to repeat this pairing process any time you reboot your Android phone or tablet.

Step 5: Back up your apps

On your Android phone, select which apps you’d like to have backed up with Helium app. When you tap the “Backup” button, Helium will ask where you’d like to save your backup files. If you want to sync backups between your Android devices, make sure to select the “Google Drive” option while you are asked how to save backup files.

Later at any time, if you want to restore Android apps, just tap “Restore and Sync” on Helium app, then select storage location.

Surely, besides Helium, there are still other options that can help to back up Android device without root, such as Holo Backup, G Cloud Backup, Super Backup etc.
