    WhatsApp helps you to stay connected with your friends and family. You can use the app not only to send messages online but also to share images, videos, audio, documents, and much more. However, there are instances when you want to take a break from the app, maybe because you want to concentrate on your studies, or some other reasons. Whatever be the reason, if you want to delete the app, you can do so by following a few simple steps. However, what needs to be noted is deleting your WhatsApp account is an irreversible process. "You can delete your account from within WhatsApp. Deleting your account is an irreversible process, which we can't revert even if you perform it by accident," WhatsApp said.

    There are certain things you need to know if you delete your account. For instance, you will not be able to regain access to your account thereafter at all. Also, it may take up to 90 days from the beginning of the deletion process to delete your WhatsApp information. Copies of your information may also remain after the 90 days in the backup storage.

    Deleting your account does not affect your information related to the groups you created or the information other users have relating to you, such as their copy of the messages you sent them. Also, your information shared with other Meta Companies will also be deleted, according to the information provided by WhatsApp.
