    Welcome to the forum

    "Normally" you wouldn't be able to access information related directly to an app unless the app provides that ability. My thought is that you wouldn't be able to do much with that data unless you first rooted the phone.

    You may try Microsoft's OneDrive. It can backup photos and videos on your phone. I wonder if it can backup your app's data.

    Use google account and sync it and create backup. Like katherine said you need to do it manually.
