Default Retrieving Whatsapp Chat History from messageStore.db

Please Login to Remove!

I deleted Whatsapp's chat history in my blackberry, so I can no longer use the function "email chat history" to retrieve a chat log from last week. However, I managed to keep hold of the history (which is stored in the file "messageStore.db") from the last time I synced my blackberry with desktop manager.

There is important information which I need to access from a certain chat. I tried every way to open the "messageStore.db" file using programs such as SQLite Manager, MSExcel, MSAccess but it all says that the file is encrypted or unreadable.

I would REALLY appreciate any advice on how to open this file. I urgently need the information and am grateful for any tips you could give on how to decrypt the file or open it. Thank you so much for any help you could give.

Maybe reach out to the developer of Whatsapp?

Hi Devnull,

Thanks for the advice I already contacted them 2 days ago but still haven't heard anything back from them. It seems like they are not that responsive. I need the file urgently so any other tips you have would be very helpful. Thanks a lot.

Does anyone have alternative solutions to opening the encrypted file? Thank you so much
