How do I save my chat history?

Your WhatsApp messages are automatically backed up and saved daily on your phone's memory. If you uninstall WhatsApp from your phone but don't want to lose any of your messages, be sure to manually back up your chats before uninstalling:

  1. Go to WhatsApp > Menu Button > Settings > Chat Settings.
  2. Tap Back up chats.

To export a copy of the history of an individual chat or group, use the Email Chat History feature:

  1. Tap and hold on the conversation or group.
  2. Select Email chat.
  3. Choose whether to Attach Media or not.

An email will be composed with your chat history attached as a .txt document.

If you choose to attach media, the most recent media sent will be added as attachments.
