Note: In the coming weeks, you will be able to see and download your WhatsApp account information and settings. This feature, Request Account Info, will be rolling out to all users around the world on the newest version of the app.
The Request Account Info feature allows you to request and export a report of your WhatsApp account information and settings. Examples of this information include your profile photo and group names.
Please note that the report doesn't include your messages. If you wish to export your chat history instead, you can learn how in our FAQ.
Your report will be available approximately 3 days after the date requested. You can refer to the Ready by date when waiting for your report.
Note: While your report request is pending, certain account actions, including deleting your account, changing your number or device or re-registering your account, will cancel your request. If your request is cancelled, you can request another report.
When the report is available, you'll receive a WhatsApp notification on your phone stating: Your account info report is ready to download.
The Request account info screen in the app will tell you how much time you have to download the report (approximately a few weeks) before it's deleted from our servers.
To download your report:
You'll be unable to view the downloaded report within WhatsApp. Select any of the external applications that appear in your share tray to export the report. For example, you can email a copy of the report to yourself. Because the report has your personal information, you should be careful when storing, sending or uploading it to any other services.
Once requested, you can't undo or cancel your pending report request.
After you download your report to your phone, you'll have the option to permanently delete the downloaded copy from your phone. Deleting the report will not delete any of your account's data.
