Recover Whatsapp contacts



I did a backup and Reset on my Sony Xperia E1 but my contacts were all missing. I have re-entered some contacts in the ‘Contacts’ heading but the names do not appear in Whatsapp.

Thank you for any advice.


Hi @Aslee, names should be appearing in whatsapp search. I don’t know why they are not showing up. Whatsapp mostly backup its data with Google account, try checking if you can recover via Google Drive.


Hi Steve.

Thank you. I will try that.
