Secure and Recover Deleted WhatsApp Data | iPhone & Android
WhatsApp is going to delete all your pictures, chats and videos – here’s how to save your data
If you use the popular instant messenger service WhatsApp, then the way you use and save your data is about to change.
So if you don’t have your account backed up by November 12 you could lose it all.
Used actively by over 1.5 billion users each month WhatsApp has got a lot of your personal data to deal with in the form of chats, multimedia, pictures and videos. As a result it has partnered with Google to offer users the ability to backup your data.
Now, the good news is that Google has agreed to allow WhatsApp users the ability to backup their accounts without it taking up any of their precious 15GB of free data from their allowance:
Unfortunately though, the bad news is that this new feature could delete any older data .
This new offering between Google and WhatsApp means all your chats, groups, multimedia, pictures, videos and audio files will be backed up without requiring you to purchase extra Google Drive space.
However; if your data has not been backed up from your account in over a year then anything older will be lost on November 12.
Google says that users should backup their WhatsApp accounts manually on their phones.
See below on how to do that.
How to manually backup your WhatsApp Data
In the fisrt instance, ensure you have Google Drive installed and setup on your phone.
Note that most WhatsApp accounts will be set to only backup over Wi-Fi so be sure you’re connected before you get started.
From WhatsApp (see below images) go to Menu, Settings, Chats then Chat backup. Select Back Up and you will automatically see all your WhatsApp data getting backed up to Google Drive.
