Whatsapp with over 500 million downloads is definitely one of the most popular instant messaging app released on any mobile platform. According to whatsapp, over 1 billion messages are sent and received using whatsapp everyday.
Whatsapp is a free app to download and available on almost every platform. As I said the app can be downloaded free, but it comes with 1-year free subscription. After that, you have to pay $0.99 (INR 60) to renew one-year subscription. This seems to be fair considering WhatsApp is an ad free messaging app.
Coming back to the topic, suppose for any reason if you want to delete whatsapp from your phone or if you are about to make factory reset of your device or format your memory card then all your data will be deleted including whatsapp data.
Fortunately, Whatsapp creates backup of your conversation everyday on your phones memory (internal or external storage). You can create backup of your whatsapp messages using your computer. It will also come in handy if you are switching to other device then your whatsapp messages can be easily transferred/restored to that devices.
If you want to create backup of your whatsapp messages then here is how to create backup and restore whatsapp messages.
