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. This can be done using your Google Account on Android devices, or iCloud on iPhone. You can back up your chats at any time or set up regular backups for added convenience.

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 more about restoring your chats here.
Note: Unfortunately, we can't restore your chats for you because your chat history isn’t stored on our servers.
