Dear Sir,

I would like to extract the whatsapp messages of IpHone 5S since Nov 2015. I actually does not know whether backup or icloud is taken or not. But I want to see these messages.

Pls suggest the solution and do needful.

Hi Sridhar: check out our guide on this topic.

Hi Aidan,

Does this software also work guaranteed for back ups that were encrypted but the password is not known for them? I stumbled on a post of yours on stack overflow from years ago and that led me to this site which seems like the most hope I have. I lost thousands of pictures and videos when syncing my previous phone which I had trouble with since I bought and I just can't get past trying to retrieve them.

Hey Marisa, thanks for writing. If you reach out direct to our support team they can help with this!
