WhatsApp allows users to talk to family and friends around the world using a Wi-Fi connection instead of mobile data. As a WhatsApp user, you may have found an app that works better, or you no longer need your WhatsApp account. How do you delete your WhatsApp account? You can get information and assistance from WhatsApp user support here, and below are steps to take to delete your account.
Your reasons for deleting WhatsApp can vary depending on why you had the app and how you used it. Below are some main reasons people have been deleting their WhatsApp accounts:
The first thing you may be wondering is what will happen to your data/account once you delete it. When you delete your WhatsApp account, all your message history will be deleted from both the app and your Google Drive account. You also will not be able to get immediate access back to your account if you delete it. Your account will no longer be active; therefore, you cannot use it to communicate. Family and friends who contacted you this way will no longer be able to reach you through the app. When they try to contact you through WhatsApp, they will receive a message that your account is no longer active. If you want to reactivate your account, it could take up to 90 days to fully reactivate your WhatsApp account.
Regardless of your reasons for wanting to delete your WhatsApp, there are steps you can take. For more information or assistance, contact WhatsApp customer support here.
