WhatsApp Chats Disappeared – How To Restore Chats

One option of the WhatsApp settings allows you to archive all chats with a finger tap. Unfortunately, this option is right below the option to make a chat backup. So, an slightly misplaced tap can cause the disappearance of all WhatsApp chats.  But don’t worry! They just got saved in the archive of WhatsApp and you can bring them back easily!

Rediscover WhatsApp chats

It is very unlikely that you deleted all your WhatsApp chats, because among other things you have to verify your phone number. If your WhatsApp Chats disappeared suddenly without deleting, it is more likely that your chats slipped into the WhatsApp archive. The archive is easily accessible and you can bring back your WhatsApp chats without any problems. And here is what you have to do when you can’t find your archived chats on WhatsApp:

Hint: If you want to make sure that your WhatsApp chats are saved, be sure to make a backup. Learn how to backup your WhatsApp chats.

Open “WhatsApp” on your iPhone and tap “Chat” in the bottom menu bar. Here used to be all your chats, but right now there are… none!

Then you should see a note that says “All of your chats are archived…”. Below you will find the link to the “Archived chats”.

Another way would be to swipe downwards on the screen. There will appear a field, where you can find “Archived chats“.

Once you have tapped on the archived chats, there should be all “deleted” chats. Unfortunately there is no option to bring back all chats at once. So you have to do it individually instead.

Swipe one name to left and tap “Unarchive“. This way the chat will be send to the place, where it supposed to be, and you will find it in the “Chat” section again.

By the way, all content, including text, photos and audio files, will return with the chat.
