Downloading WhatsApp statuses through third party apps can affect the security of your WhatsApp account itself.
Someone who uses WhatsApp to ask for and buy some WhatsApp statuses posted by friends may have felt at least once. To do this, many ask a friend or download another using a third party app. But what if we get status without doing both! This is a secret known only to some of the WhatsApp users.
All the statuses you see on WhatsApp are saved on your phone. When you click on a status, you can view it after it has been saved to your phone’s internal memory. Therefore, these statuses will remain in your internal memory for up to 24 hours. You can customize the status you like from your phone’s internal memory without having to ask friends and download another app.
If you want the status to be used for another time, simply save the status from the automatically saved folder. You will not lose that status after 24 hours. Let’s see how and where you can take WhatsApp statuses and use them.
To take WhatsApp status from internal memory
WhatsApp statuses can be auto-downloaded and shared from internal memory on all Android phones except iPhone. On Android phones, you can automatically download WhatsApp statuses through the file manager. On some phones the folder containing the statuses may be hidden. Let us see how to select the status folder.
- Open the ‘File Manager’ on your phone
- Go to ‘Internal Memory’
- Open the ‘WhatsApp’ folder from there
- Open the ‘Media’ folder inside it
- At the top right of the folder you will see an icon in three dots, click on it
- From the options available, select the ‘Show Hidden Files’ option. You will get the hidden status folder.
From there you can select the photo / video status you want to status or share. For those whose folder is not hidden, you can see the folder ‘statuses’ as soon as you go to the Media folder.
Downloading WhatsApp statuses through other third party apps may affect the security of your WhatsApp account itself. It is safe to keep such WhatsApp apps safe and to avoid losing valuable personal information. WhatsApp does not provide any other app to download other than this status.
