    Everybody can make a manual backup because the URL is simply
    http://www.urlOfTheSite/?backup

    By security, generate a random code for each instalation should be a good idea:
    http://www.urlOfTheSite/?backup75MkptUoi4521Plm452

    or with email admin:
    http://www.urlOfTheSite/?backup&admin=eMailOfAdmin@gmail.com

    Yeah, I'm aware of the issue and was actually thinking of only allowing execution of the backup process if the URL is requested by the localhost or a logged in admin.

    Do you think your suggestion is better?

    Yes, it's others good ideas.

    A lot of backup plugin have a button "save now" in the admin.

    I think it should be a button on the backend only accessible by admin and not a web address.
