Save WhatsApp Conversation by Backing It Up to iCloud

The first way that you can backup chat history in WhatsApp is by just putting them on iCloud. Here is how to do it:

(1) Make sure you are signed into iCloud, then open up the WhatsApp app on your phone and go to WhatsApp Settings > Chats > Chat Backup.

(2) Tap where it says Back Up Now.

(3) You can also tap Auto Backup to set the app for periodic backups.

This method has some limitations, however. For one, you have to make sure it doesn't exceed your allotted iCloud storage limit, or else you may have to pay. More importantly, though, you can't view what data is in the backup until you restore it from iCloud to your phone, wiping the data on your phone. There's no way to view or extract the data without doing this.

Save WhatsApp Conversations by Emailing Them to Others

If you email the conversation to yourself, it will be stored in your inbox of course. Here is how to backup chat history in WhatsApp by emailing them:

(1) Open up WhatsApp on your phone and tap the conversation you want to save.

(2) Tap on the name of your contact, then go down to where it says Export Chat.

(3) Select whether you want to email the conversation with or without media.

(4) Choose the Mail app when you are given a choice of apps.

(5) Put in the desired email address, then tap Send.

One major drawback to this method, though, is that if you have many conversations that you want to save, it can take a long time to send them all one at a time.
