We all have one or a few special WhatsApp chats that we wish to keep but fear to lose. It may be the first exchanges with your boyfriend or girlfriend, family chats, a conversation with a group of friends... Some messages have a lot more sentimental value than others and are true reminders of wonderful memories.

You assume these chats are safe on your phone - until it gets broken, or lost, or until you decide to buy a new one. In such case, if you haven’t been careful and haven’t proceeded to the necessary backups... you could lose your chats forever! Many times, people lose chats of great sentimental value... And that’s sad!

To prevent this regrettable fact, we have a very simple solution. Export your WhatsApp chat and keep a copy of it.

Save WhatsApp chats via your iPhone

 

Let’s find out a few more tips to get a safe copy of your chats, easily and for free.

✅ First of all, we recommend updating your WhatsApp application to make sure you have the latest version.

 

  • Open WhatsApp on your iPhone.

 

  • Go to your thread and click on the conversation you want to export.

 

  • At the top of the screen, click on the name of the contact or the name of the group of the conversation 😎.

 

  • Scroll down the page until you see "export discussion", and click.

 

  • Now you can choose whether or not to join the media files (photos, videos, audios...).

 

  • If you click on "Add media" 📸, the best is to save the .zip file that will be created in "Files" or on another storage platform such as "Google Drive", "Dropbox" etc. This will allow you to find it easily.

 

  • On the other hand ⛔️ don't use 📧 "Email"  ⛔️ if you do want the media files, because your file will be limited to 15MB and you could receive only the last pictures and messages.

 

(Optional) You can make a paper copy of your data. Maybe you weren’t aware of this: you can transform your WhatsApp chat into a paper or digital book thanks to www.MONLIVRESMS.com 💌 Despite the reliability of our computers, a paper version of your chat remains the safest way to keep them.
