Hello,

A few days ago my phone was stolen with my sim card.
I don't think my phone got hacked into, but I need to know wether you can access my whatsapp backup history without my email address (meaning someone put the sim into a different phone)

Thank you for your time

Hello, if they physically have access to your phone are able to unlock it, then yes, they could access your WhatsApp messages, and ultimately your backup.

See this article from the WhatsApp Help Centre on lost and stolen phones.
