Whatsapps - Remove message history on phone

It is just a simple post but may be useful for some people. Some people may thinks that performing a factory reset will erase all data from the phone. It is technically a correct understanding, however, whatsapp data does not reside at the phone. They are located at the whatsapp server. Thus, after a factory reset and you reinstall whatsapp with the same mobile number, you message history will be reloaded into the phone.

1. Open whatsapp and go to Setting page
