If you deleted any Chat history or messages without backup, you can still recover lost messages, attachments from the WhatsApp automatic backups. It is because WhatsApp automatically makes backups every day at 4 AM (your local time) and stores them on your phone’s internal memory (only given that there is enough free space) or external microSD card of your Android phone. What you will need in order to recover WhatsApp messages is to uninstall the WhatsApp, then reinstall the chat app again. During the installation process, you will be prompted to restore your message history. Simply tap Restore and everything less than seven days old is restored.

  4. Install WhatsApp.
  5. When asked to restore, tap Restore.
You can find the WhatsApp backup files from /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases folder, you will see that they are saved with names like “msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt7”. Note that WhatsApp backup folder may be located in either your phone’s internal memory or external memory.

What are the disadvantages of recovering WhatsApp chat messages from backups?

  • The automatic backup files of your WhatsApp chat history and messages are only valid for 7 days after last saved. Make sure you import your chat history before it expires! You can’t find or restore data from backups that are more than 7 days old.
  • You will lose the newest WhatsApp messages. Current chat history that has not been backed up yet will be lost upon restoration. That is to say you will lose all of the messages that you have sent and received since the backup was created.
  • You can’t restore chat messages if your SD card and/or chat history is corrupted.
  • You can’t restore chat history if you have a different phone number than when you backed up your chats.
  • If you run a manual backup, it will overwrite the most recent automatic backup file.

  •  How to recover recent WhatsApp chat messages without losing newest chat history?
We know that new messages sent/received after a backup, and deleted before the next backup, cannot be restored. If you want to keep a copy of the newest WhatsApp messages, you can create a manual backup from
WhatsApp > Menu Button > Settings > Chat Settings > Backup conversations.

 This manual backup file will normally be saved as “msgstore.db.crypt7″ in your /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases folder. Rename this chat backup file to something like “msgstore.db.crypt7.newest” or “msgstore.db.crypt7.current”.
There’s no simple way to merge your new message with your old, recovered messages though

How to Use WhatsApp without Phone Number?

There is no surprise in saying that WhatsApp is an amazing messaging application that allows you to send unlimited text, sound/video clips to your dear ones for free. Since, it has been acquired by the social giant 'Facebook', you can expect much more awesome features in the future. Earlier, we've seen how to run WhatsApp on PC and manage your messages from your Computer. However, that method requires your mobile number to use WhatsApp. But, there may be few people who do not want to use (or don't have one) their mobile number in order to use WhatsApp. Lucky for them, there is always a workaround for every tricky problem.

Option - 1

  • Yes, you heard it right, you can use your Whatsapp without using your phone number. Confused? Then have a look at the below statements.
  • Complete the downloading part of Whatsapp on your phone and when you are done with it you will notice that it sends the verification message to its server.
  • Now the work/trick that you need to do/perform is blocking the message service and this can be easily done by keeping your phone on flight mode.
  • Now when you do this one more thing can happen and that is Whatsapp chooses an alternative way for the verification, so choose the verify through message option and fill up your email address and then click on the send option and as soon as that cancel the sending message option.
  • Now you need to do is message spoofing.
  • And after the spoofing of the message is done, you will receive messages intended for the spoofed number of your device, and then you can use your Whatsapp to communicate with people with your spoofed number.

Option - 2

In this method, you are not actually entering your mobile number, but will be using an alternate (temporary) number in order to activate and use the WhatsApp application. Saying so, you can happily chat with your friends without revealing your actual or original mobile number.

Things You'll need:

  • A mobile phone or a PC
  • WhatsApp
  • Text+
  • A decent Internet connection
  1. First of all, install WhatsApp on your device. In case you wanted to do it for a pre-installed app, then you'll need to remove your mobile number or choose the option that says 'change number'.
  2. Next, install another app called 'Text+' which is our actual lifesaver. It helps you get the verification number. If not, you can also try using the online SMS verification sites which provide free number's for you to receive SMS messages online instead of your mobile phone.
    Example  -
  3. In case you're using the Text+ app to receive the verification SMS, then simply open the application and navigate to Settings > Contact. Here you'll notice a mobile number, which you can use for verifying WhatsApp account.
  4. You'll then receive the verification code in your Text+ application, which should be entered back in your WhatsApp application in order to activate your account.

That's all! You can now use WhatsApp anonymously without using your original contact Details. However, please ensure that you use this trick only for good (like pranking your friends).
