Before Deleting WeChat History

  • Back up important chat history or media to another device first if you need to keep them. WeChat does not retain chat logs on its servers.
  • Delete history on one device at a time if you use WeChat on multiple devices.
  • Put your phone in airplane mode before deleting history to avoid new messages overwriting deleted ones.

After Deleting WeChat History

After deleting all history:

  • Clear cache in WeChat app > Force stop the app > Restart your phone – This further removes traces of deleted history.
  • Avoid logging into WeChat right away – Wait for some time before logging back in so deleted history is fully removed from servers as well.
