In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to disable WhatsApp Chat Auto Backup on your Apple iPhone.
Step 1: Open the WhatsApp application on your Apple iPhone.
Step 2: When the app opens, tap on the “Settings” option located on the bottom-right corner.
Step 3: On the Settings screen, tap on the “Chat” option.
Step 4: After that, tap on the “Chat Backup” option.
Step 5: In there, select the “Auto Backup” option and change the selected option to “Off” from the list.
That’s it. Once you have followed this step-by-step process, the auto-back of WhatsApp chat will be disabled on your Apple iPhone.
You will still be able to manually take a WhatsApp Chat backup by selecting the “Back Up Now” option whenever you want to take a backup.
If you don’t want to completely disable the auto-backup option for WhatsApp but want to save the storage space, you can exclude the video files from being backed up by toggling off the switch for the “Include Videos” option in the Chat Backup settings screen. Once that is done, WhatsApp will no longer include videos in the backup files.
