to chat with
Yo WhatsApp settings

Is my Yo WhatsApp data shared with Meta or Apple?

Here are some frequently asked questions about transferring your Yo WhatsApp data to a new iOS device that should help you stay up to date.
Why can’t I transfer data to my old iPhone?
Transferring data from an Android device appears to be only available during the setup process on an Android device. This means that the process requires a clean file system to set up and transfer all data to the desired location on the iOS device.
Once populated, the file system and folders do not support writing external data, which is why you cannot transfer data without resetting your iOS device.
What happens to my Yo WhatsApp data on Android?
This is another aspect of Yo WhatsApp data transfer that you need to be wary of. Although you log out of your Yo WhatsApp account on your Android device during the transfer process, your data remains on your Android device.
This data will remain on your device unless you uninstall the app or reset your Android device.
Will my Yo WhatsApp data also be transferred to iCloud?
No, your Yo WhatsApp data is not automatically transferred to iCloud. After transferring your data and setting up your account on your iOS device, you can enable iCloud backup for Yo WhatsApp in Yo WhatsApp settings.
This will in turn enable iCloud backup for Yo WhatsApp and backup your recovered data to the cloud.
