Whatsapp was acquired by Facebook for billions of dollars and has been introducing features which were well received and some which were criticized by many such as the ‘stories’ addition to its status tab.

Recent news suggests the app is on the brink of introducing mobile payment services soon. The messaging app is important for individuals and businesses alike but what happens if you lose all your data because of a broken or stolen device?

Here’s how you can backup all your Whatsapp data on an iPhone to be restored when setting up Whatsapp on any other device.

  • Open your Whatsapp and click on the Settings tab.
  • In the Settings menu tap on Chats.
  • With other options such as Chat Wallpaper and Archive Chats, you will see a Chat Backup tab, select that.
