    "Without any third party app, WhatsApp automatically stores your chats from the last seven days, creating a backup every night at 2am and saving that to your phone itself. Otherwise, GT Recovery is a simple enough 3rd party program that can recover items which were deleted or lost on your computer"

    "It’s surprisingly simple to recover anything less than seven days old: just uninstall the app, then reinstall it. WhatsApp automatically creates a backup of your chat data everyday at 4 am system time, and this data is stored on the SD card of your Android phone. When you re-install the app, you are prompted to restore your message history. Simply tap Restore and everything less than seven days old is restored"
