Last week I tried to move my Whatsapp account to a new phone. For some reason it didn't want to restore the backup, even if I moved the backup file manually. It turned out that the file was encrypted using another Google account.
This is an old work account. It's inactive, and I can still login. That made it possible to restore my backup, so I'm happy with that. But I don't work there anymore, and I don't want the backup to be in that account, even if it's encrypted. And even if it's encrypted, how does the new phone know the unlock code?
- How can I move the new backups to my normal account? Will deleting the old account suffice?
- How can I remove the old backups from the old account?
- Could someone else with access to the old account restore my entire Whatsapp history?
