WhatsApp allows the user to export their account data in the test version of the Android app. After requesting the report, the courier takes a few hours to process the information and make the download available. However, the file remains available for a few weeks, which may allow others to access your data inappropriately.
Check, in the following step by step, how to delete your WhatsApp report. The feature, at this time, is only available for Android users and should arrive soon on the iPhone (iOS).
