How to Delete and Remove Archived Chat Histories in WhatsApp Messenger

How to Delete Archived Chats in WhatsApp

To delete an archived chat in WhatsApp:

  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the “Archived Chats” section at the top of the Chats tab on iPhone or at the bottom of the Chats screen on Android.
  2. Tap and hold the chat you want to delete.
  3. Tap the trash icon at the top right to delete the chat.
  4. On the confirmation pop-up, you can choose to delete media if you want.
  5. Tap “Delete” to confirm and permanently remove the chat.

If it’s a group chat, you’ll first need to exit the group before getting the option to delete it.

Deleting an archived chat removes it completely from your WhatsApp account, but the other person/people will still have a copy on their device(s).
