How To Solve FMWhatsapp or GBWhatsapp Error – unable to access your account at this time, please try again later

When you try to backup Whatsapp on FMWhatsapp or GBWhatsapp to Google drive you get the error “Unable to access your account at this time, please try again later”.

This error means that you will not be able to have a cloud backup of your chats in your most MODs installations of whatsapp.

The problem normally happens after you switch from the official whatsapp to many versions of MODs like FM and GB WHATSAPP.

After you install GB OR FM whatsapp, you are unable to sync your databases to G-drive.

So how do I use the backup?

If you want to get a back up of your chats after you have installed MODs on a new phone, or if you uninstalled and reinstalled and now want the back up here is what you need to do.

  1. Install the MOD but don’t open it.
  2. Download the APP FolderSync  on the new phone where you want the backup
  3. Go through all the steps provided above so that the new whatsapp GB or FM whatsapp can sync what you had on Gdrive to the phone. 
  4. When the sync is complete, restart your phone and start your GBwhatsapp.
  5. When prompted, don’t use the first option to restore your contacts. Also do not accept the option to copy the data from google drive.
  6. The App will warn you that there’s a backup available on your phone internal memory. Accept and restore that copy by pressing Restore.

Please note that during Setup of FM and GBWhatsapp you will be asked if you want to import a backup from google. Simply decline at that level as you will keep running into the same error. Ignore and use the method above.

Secondly do not try to restore chats after you have already verified and opened up your FMwhatsapp. You must go through the process before opening your WhatsApp and using it to chat. Nothing will work if you first set up and open WhatsApp then you try to get a backup restored.
