How To Transfer WhatsApp Messages From iPhone To Computer

WhatsApp is a popular app allowing users to send messages, pictures, videos and share locations. There is no doubt that we all have important conversations on WhatsApp and don't want to lose them in any case. It is universally known that we can back up WahtsApp to iTunes or iCloud. However the problem is that we are not able to view the conversations unless we restore the entire backup to an iOS device. This will lead to the loss of the existing data on the device, which is the last option we would like to choose.
