  1. I'm sure you're too busy to answer my email, but I wanted to give it a try, I read your article about the backup you can do with iCloud of your WhatsApp conversations and I was wondering if there's a tutorial or something you know on how can I do that without having the phone but a previous backup of it? I know it sounds weird and stupid, but how can someone do that, just if they have the access to iCloud?
    Long story short my boyfriend helped me do this famous backup thing with iCloud and somehow weeks later (or that's what I think) he was able to see all my conversations from whatsapp since day 1, he did it at work without my phone, or me knowing, so I just want to know how to access it myself or find the way he did it. I've been looking it up but can't find anything.
    Hope you can help.

  2. I guess, he has the access to your Apple ID and password, through which he can access to your iCloud on his Mac at his office. If he can login to your iCloud, then he can also have the access to your backups, including Whatsapp.

  3. very useful information.

  4. Yeah, back up your iPhone whatsapp messages to iCloud is cool, but this may eat a lot of space and you have to pay for more money for that. Here I suggest you back up them to your computer.
