And no matter how you choose to use it, at some point in time you will come across a situation wherein you need to retrieve a certain information from one of your chats. It maybe for emergency use or for reference use. And that’s why it’s very good to know that WeChat has a great feature called the Chat History Backup feature.
The Chat History Backup Feature saves all your WeChat conversation histories, and what’s even more awesome is that it restores them to ANY DEVICE for up to 7 days. That’s really something that could save your day!
Like one time I lost the scratch paper of where I wrote down the details of my daughter’s passport appearance schedule but I knew that my wife sent it to me as well through WeChat. Lo and behold, it was still there. All of the details that I need.
But it doesn’t all get backed up automatically. You have to set which chats you want to back up. But no worries because setting your WeChat to enable the Chat History Backup is very easy and can be done in only three (3) steps. Just select "Settings" > "General" > "Chat History Backup"
....and then tap“Back Up”
and then select the conversations that you feel like you need to store.
Another simple but amazing feature is your option to put a password on these saved chats..
And then whenever you need to restore your conversations in any device, all you need to do is log on, go to the Chat History Backup window then tap “Restore”. As soon as you do this, you saved history will be restored to the device you’re using from the server.
For safety, you will be asked to enter your chat history password. This ensures all information in your chat are safe.
And here are three sample scenarios how the WeChat History Backup can make your life easier!:
WeChat’s Chat History Backup can be very handy when one needs to retrieve information such as important dates like anniversaries, birthdays, or even dates of reunions, or even as simple as a coffee date with your friends. As we grow older we tend to be more forgetful. Now all you have to do is check out your chat history back up and check the dates you and your friends agreed on.
You could also refer to your chats for important lists. Like things you someone asked you to buy, or grocery list you need to buy for the house. Going to Baguio and can’t remember the list of stuff your relative asked you to buy? Now you can check it with WeChat history backup!
And of course, you can also refer to the WeChat history backup for retrieving work details. For example, details about your group chat meeting, talking points that you agreed on for the presentation, or even the name of the contact person you’re about to meet with for an ocular.
