How to save your WhatsApp chat history

Your WhatsApp chats are automatically backed up and saved daily to your phone’s memory. Depending on your settings, you can also periodically back up your WhatsApp chats to Google Drive. 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.

How to back up your chats

To back up your chats and messages, follow the procedure below:

  • Go to WhatsApp
  • Tap More options
  • Go to Settings, and then to Chats.
  • Select Chat backup and choose BACK UP.

How to export your WhatsApp chat history

If you want to export a copy the chat history from an individual or group chat, you can use the export chat feature. Key to note is that this feature isn’t supported in Germany.

To export your chat history:

  • Open the individual or group chat.
  • Tap More options
  • Tap More.
  • Tap Export chat, and choose whether to export with media or without media.

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.

When exporting with media, you can send up to 10,000 latest messages. Without media, you can send 40,000 messages. WhatsApp says these constraints are due to maximum email sizes.
