    Creating back up for Whatsapp messages on Android phone

    I used to message to my friends from Whatsapp messenger app on my Android phone. Now, I need to create back up for all those messages as I am uninstalling the app. What should I do for that?

    Once you open the WhatsApp app, hit the ‘Menu’ key to bring up a list of options. Go through that list afterwards and make a single tap over ‘Settings’ option. Then, scroll down to the ‘Chat Settings’ section and hit the ‘Backup conversations’ option. All the messages will be backed up automatically after that. After that, copy the WhatsApp folder in the SD card of the device to the PC. Before re-installing the app, you need to copy this folder back to the SD card. While you re-install the app, you will be asked to restore the back up. At the moment, press the ‘Yes’ along with the prompt message and restore it.
