About backing up or restoring your chats

If you're using WhatsApp on your phone, you have the ability to back up and restore your chat history in case you lose your phone or switch to a new one. You can back up your chats at any time or set up regular backups for added convenience.

Backing up your chats

You can back up your chat history using your Google Account on Android devices, or iCloud on iPhone. Learn how here.

Restoring your chats

To successfully restore your chats, you need to use the same phone number and Google Account or iCloud account you used to create the backup. We recommend performing a backup before uninstalling WhatsApp or moving to a new device. Learn how to restore your chats here.
Note: Unfortunately, we can't restore your chats for you because your chat history isn’t stored on our servers.
