How To Bring Back My Whatsapp

If you have unintentionally deleted your WhatsApp or need to restore it on a different device, this guide will provide you with the necessary steps to successfully retrieve and use your WhatsApp again.

Reinstalling WhatsApp

If you simply deleted the app from your phone, the first step is to reinstall it. You can do this by going to your device’s app store (Google Play for Android and App Store for iOS) and searching for WhatsApp.

Restoring Your Account

After reinstalling the app, you’ll need to restore your account. When you open WhatsApp for the first time after reinstalling it, the app will prompt you to enter your phone number. After you enter your number, WhatsApp will send you a verification code. Enter this code to verify your account.

Restoring Your Chats

If you’ve backed up your chats to Google Drive or iCloud, you can restore them after verifying your account. Once you’ve verified your account, WhatsApp will automatically prompt you to restore your chats from your last backup.

To restore your chats, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on Restore when prompted by WhatsApp.
  2. Wait for the restore process to complete.
  3. Tap on Next once the process is completed. Your chats should now be restored on WhatsApp.

Restoring Your Chats Manually

If WhatsApp does not prompt you to restore your chats, or if you want to restore your chats from a local backup, you’ll need to do it manually. The process for doing this is different for Android and iOS.

For Android:

To restore your chats manually on Android, you’ll need to first locate the /sdcard/WhatsApp/ folder. If it doesn’t exist, create it. Then, copy your backup files into this folder.

For iOS:

For iOS, you’ll need to uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. After verifying your account, WhatsApp will prompt you to restore your chats from iCloud.


Restoring your WhatsApp account can be a simple process, as long as you know the steps. Whether you’re restoring from a backup or reinstalling the app, this guide should have you back on WhatsApp in no time.
