How to backup WhatsApp

WhatsApp chats are automatically backed up daily and stored in your phone’s storage.

However, you will lose all your messages if you uninstall the app.

That’s why it’s important to back up WhatsApp manually if you want to make sure all your messages stay intact after uninstalling.

This is a simple step-by-step guide on how to backup your WhatsApp chats:

WhatsApp is preparing a huge update that will change the way you use the app forever
You've been using WhatsApp incorrectly for years - three hacks you need to know
  • Go to WhatsApp
  • Tap More options followed by three dots on top of each other
  • Go to settings
  • Go to Chats
  • Go to Chat Backup
  • Click SAVE

And now all your WhatsApp messages are backed up.

What can you backup on WhatsApp?

WhatsApp allows you to send multiple messages in different forms.

Backing up chats means you can back up everything from photos and videos.

You can also back up important documents that you send through the app.

You may prefer using voice memos instead of text messages and you can back them up as well.

Locations, gifs and any sent or added contacts are also backed up.

Where is my WhatsApp backup stored?

You choose where to save your WhatsApp backup.

So if you are using an Apple product and want to store your messages in iCloud, follow these steps:

  • Access your iPhone’s settings
  • Access the Apple ID
  • Click iCloud
  • Locate the WhatsApp icon in the list of apps you have
  • Click the toggle to enable backup location – it may already be enabled

If you have an Android, your messages are saved automatically and daily.

To access the backup, you can access your local storage or SD card on your phone.

You might also want to look out for the words internal storage or main storage, since many phones refer to this location by a different name.

Then find the WhatsApp icon and access databases through it.

If you want your chats to be backed up to Google Drive, you can follow the instructions we gave you above to do a normal backup.

Instead of selecting BACKUP, you have the option to “Backup to Google Drive”.
