  • 9. Why does this software require me to download the customized WhatsApp? Is it safe?

    First, it's completely safe to install the customized WhatsApp application since it is almost identical to the official one.

    The only purpose of the customized WhatsApp is to help us transfer data, because it's hard to directly transfer WhatsApp data stored on Android to other devices. Our experienced R&D team added code to WhatsApp to change its way of writing and reading data. Therefore, your WhatsApp data can be transferred or backed up to other devices. We don't collect any data during the process.

  • 10. How do I update the customized WhatsApp to the official one?

    Make sure that the data in the customized WhatsApp is what you want to keep. We recommend using WhatsMover to back up the WhatsApp data on your Android device first to avoid data loss. Then follow the steps below:

    Step 1. Open WhatsApp Settings > Chats > Chat backup to back up WhatsApp to the phone's local storage.

    Step 2. If a backup screen pops up, turn off auto backup to Google Drive and then click BACK UP. If it finishes smoothly, check the date of your last backup.

    Step 3. Uninstall the customized WhatsApp from your device, then go to Google Play and download the official WhatsApp application. Before login, go to Settings> Permission and turn on Storage, otherwise your local backup won't be recognized.
