Retrieving text from "What's App" (in iTunes backup)

Kathi Apr 14, 2015 11:33AM CDT

I can retrieve media from "Whats App" (within my iTunes backup file). But cannot seem to find/retrieve text files.
Any help greatly appreciated!

WhatsApp messages are stored in a database file, not as individual messages, and the database file you want is in WhatsApp’s Documents folder and called ChatStorage.sqlite. Just drag that file to your computer, and since it’s an SQLite database, you’ll need an SQLite database manager app to open it. There are free ones out there such as Firefox’s free SQLite Manager add-on:
