If you have been using the WhatsApp Business app for a while now, then you can also encounter a similar issue. You might already know that WhatsApp offers a dedicated app for small businesses to showcase their products and engage with their customers. Since your WhatsApp Business account can have a lot of important data, it is recommended to maintain its backup. In this post, I will provide 3 solutions to take WhatsApp Business backup like a pro.
Part 1: Backup WhatsApp Business App Data to iCloud [For iPhone]
Just like the Standard WhatsApp app, the Business application can also be linked to your iCloud account. In this way, you can easily backup WhatsApp Business data to your iCloud account and resort it later on. Since Apple only provides 5 GB of free space on iCloud, you might need to buy more storage to take WhatsApp Business backup. Here are some simple steps you can take to do WhatsApp Business chat backup.
- Firstly, launch the WhatsApp Business application on your device and go to its Settings option by tapping on the gear icon from the bottom panel.
- Now, navigate to its Chat Settings > Chat Backup and make sure that your iCloud account is linked to WhatsApp Business here.
- To take an immediate backup of WhatsApp Business data, tap on the “Back Up Now” button. Subsequently, you can also go to the Auto Backup feature to set automatic schedule for daily or weekly backup.
Bonus: Restore the WhatsApp Business Backup
After taking a backup of your WhatsApp Business data, you can also restore it to your iPhone. To do that, you need to reinstall the WhatsApp Business app on it. Also, make sure that your iPhone is connected to the same iCloud account beforehand. Now, when you launch WhatsApp, just enter the same number as before to set up your account. It will automatically detect the presence of a WhatsApp business backup and will let you restore it.
