    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the WhatsApp application.
    There is a WhatsApp icon, which is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside, and underneath it says "WhatsApp". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We want to demonstrate how to archive a WhatsApp chat.

  6. 6
    Tap on "Archive chat".
    It will then say "Archived chats (1)" in the chat list. The reason we archive chats is because we want to clear them away, but we don't want to delete them. We want to put them somewhere safe and store them in a place that is out of sight, but we can still read them if we want to. This helps us to clear old chats and things that aren't active anymore, without having to delete them.
