How to Delete WhatsApp Backup from Google Drive


When do you need to delete WhatsApp backup from Google Drive?

  1.  When you realize that it is not safe to keep too much personal information on the internet, you may need this tutorial.
  2.  Many people know that we can recover deleted WhatsAppmessages from backup by reinstalling the app and it will find backup from Google Drive or local storage. However, if you have Google Drive backup and local backup simultaneously, the app will show Google Drive backup only. This is inconvenient when the deleted messages or files were merely in local backup. As a result, you have to disconnect or delete the Google Drive backup for WhatsApp.  

Step-by-step instruction:

Step 1. Visit https://drive.google.com on your computer browser. If you use a mobile device, remember to switch the page to desktop version.

Step 2. Log in with your Google Drive account (the same one that linked to your WhatsApp).
Step 3. Click the Cog icon.

Step 4. Choose Settings.

Step 5. Click Manage Apps.

Step 6. Scroll down to find WhatsApp or other apps.
Step 7. Click Options.

Step 8. Choose "Disconnect from drive" or "Delete hidden app data".

Step 9. Confirm your choice.


Notice: 
  • If you choose Disconnect from drive, you can still keep the backup app data in case you need them in the future. It’s up to you.
  • As you can see, this tip also suits for other apps, like Viber.
