Overview old attributes view

You can access the old attributes by tapping on the “three dots” up right in the single contact view and afterwards on “old attributes”. The old attributes view shows you the entries of that contact which you have deleted or changed (old values).

With this two step deletion process ContactShip App ensures that you can’t delete most of your entries out of accident and therefore is the first layer of our data security measures. For further security you can create backups in your Google Drive and if you become a premium user you can benefit from our central data severs and synchronization processes.
