Detailed Instructions on how to backup WhatsApp messages to your computer

If you have WhatsApp messages on your iPhone that you need to copy to your PC/Mac, TouchCopy can copy them in the same way that you can copy SMS and iMessages.

Firstly, you will need to open TouchCopy and connect your iPhone. Once TouchCopy has read your device, navigate to the 'Messages' tab (1) on the left hand side of TouchCopy. You can then scroll down the messages to see your different messages, grouped by type. Your WhatsApp messages will be at the bottom of the list.

From there you can then select the message that you wish to copy or print by clicking on the name of the contact with whom the conversation is with (2). Then, you can either select 'Copy Messages' to copy the selected WhatsApp message to your PC/Mac as a HTML file named after the contact with whom you've exchanged messages. TouchCopy will also create a folder named after the selected contact, containing photos and videos sent and received as part of your WhatsApp chats.

Alternatively, you can choose to save your WhatsApp chats and other messages on your iPhone as PDF files. Simply select the chat you wish to save and click on "Save PDF" in TouchCopy.

Your WhatsApp chats can also be printed directly from TouchCopy. Simply select 'Print' to print out the selected conversation. The printout of your messages created by TouchCopy will appear exactly as it does on your iPhone.
