WhatsApp -> (Menu Button) -> Settings -> Chat Settings -> (Backup Conversation)
And if you ever wish to access the backup files manually, just go to this path – /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases/

Even though iPhone version of Whatsapp doesn’t save chat history, there are workaround for this.
You can use cloud based service, iCloud to save your chat history online securely. To do same, install iCloud on your iPhone and log-in. Then go to iPhone Settings -> iCloud -> Documents & Data, turn it ON.
Now open up Whatsapp Application and go to Chat Settings -> Chat Backup and tap (Back up Now). Or else you can robotically make this possible tapping (Auto Backup) and selecting frequency of your backup.

Same case of Android is here with Windows Phone. They are stored locally on the phone itself. Backups are not synced with online servers. So if you wish to recover back old messages, just Uninstall and Reinstall Whatsapp. Messages from backup will be automatically restored.
