Does Whatsapp save my messages on their servers?

Your chats are being saved on your phone and not on the Whatsapp server. The only moment Whatsapp saves your message is the moment you send it. The message is being saved on Whatsapp servers until it can be delivered to the recieving phone. This might take a while when that phone is out reach of internet or is turned off.

If the message is on the Whatsapp server for more than 30 days it will be deleted from the server.

    1. Whatsapp backup your data on your phone.Not on its servers.I you want to do practical.Just backup your data at the moment.And then send some messages to your friends.Then remove whatsapp from your phone.Backup option will still be available there,but it will not be able to recieve the messages you sent just a few minutes after,you back up your data.

    2. That’s because Whatsapp offers an optional backup feature. This is not backed up to Whatsapp ‘s own servers, it’s backed up to Google Drive or iCloud. This feature is optional, so you can switch it off in Whatsapp settings, or even delete past backups if you should so desire.
