    Hi, all

    I just upgraded to Android 12 on my Galaxy S10e. WhatsApp is taking forever to do a backup to Google Drive, something that I never noticed on Android 11.

    I have tried all the standard suggestions for slow WhatsApp backup - clear WhatsApp cache, delete old backup on Google Drive, etc. I'm on Wi-Fi and am not backing up videos.

    Is anyone else seeing slow WhatsApp backups? Any ideas?

    Thanks

    You try rebooting your router?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried it, but it didn't make a difference.

    Do you use any ad guards or VPN?

    Bingo! VPN. Turned it off and the backup is zooming along.

    Thanks 10e6!
