    We now need to find the WhatsApp tile

    Mine is located at the bottom of the home screen.

  4. 4
    You can see blue tile with a white phone inside a white speech bubble

  7. 7
    Now we need to enter the profile of a particular contact
    .
    To do that we can enter a message or we can go to "favorites". You can see we have one favorite here and a phone number. If you have your contact defined by name, then you'll see a name in here and you will also see a profile picture most of the time. Our contact does not have a profile picture.

  10. 10
    We want to enter their profile

    To do that we need the phone number or name at the top of the screen. You can see the white phone number up here at the top left-hand corner.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    It's quite hard to enter because it's quite secret
    .
    You wouldn't really know this unless you kind of end up just pressing everything on the screen. It's not very clear that this is the way to enter their profile. We need to press that number.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Now we can enter their profile
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Once in the profile, we need to press the ellipsis button at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
    .
    That is the 3 dots.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Now we have some options
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    At the bottom, you can see "clear chat history"
    .
    Press that option.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    It is going to give you 3 more options
    .
    We can clear all of the chat histories, we can clear chat history older than 30 days, or older than 6 months. This may be if you want to keep the more recent conversations, but you want to clear the very old stuff because you just don't need it anymore.
