Today in this post we will see How to Delete WhatsApp Chat Permanently. We will see how to delete a chat with an individual contact or we will see how to delete the whole chat from WhatsApp Permanently.
I have opened the WhatsApp application and suppose if I want to delete the chat with a single contact then what I will do is I will tap and hold the contact and you will have the button here at the top to delete. But if I want to delete the whole chat, then what I will do, I will tap on these three dotted icons.
How to Delete WhatsApp Chat Permanently (From Google Drive and Phone)
I’m sharing with you here with the screenshot below. You can follow the screenshot below.
#1: Go to “Settings“.
#2: Go to “Chat“
#3: Go to “Chat History“.
#4: And I have the option here “Delete all Chat” and if I press here.
I will be able to delete all this chat including the Media such as Photos and Videos.
Right now this is the first step only, but what you have is you still have the backup of the chat either in the google drive or in the phone itself. We will be looking at how to delete those. Also, let me first open Google Drive and then tap on the profile icon here and I should know where I have backed up the WhatsApp Chat on which Google Account I have backed.
So once I know I will just select that google account and then I will tap on this menu option.
Go to “Backups“. As you can see there is WhatsApp backup present in the Google Drive application and if I want to delete this one I will tap on these three dotted icons and then select delete the backup.
So in this way you can delete the WhatsApp Backup from Google Drive. The next step is to delete the backup from the phone itself. For this one what I will do is I will go ahead and open this folder Samsung and then go to this option “My Files” and then go to this option internal storage.
Now, depending on the model of the android device, you might have a slightly different process to go into the internal storage and here what I will do, I will look for WhatsApp and then I will open this WhatsApp folder.
There is an option here for databases. I will open it so these are the backup which are present in the phone locally and if I have to delete these backups that I will do, I will tap and hold this backup first and then I can select all and if I tap on this delete button, then I will be able to delete the backup from the phone.
So in this way you have to delete the backup from Google Drive as well as from the phone as well and then you have permanently deleted WhatsApp Chat from Android Device.
