Whatsapp Hacking Tricks You Need To Know

WhatsApp hacking tricks can vary from the obvious to the sneaky, with our handy list you’ll be saving relationships and precious phone storage!

 

1. Stop WhatsApp from eating your storage

Much like my sister any time she comes into town, WhatsApp can take up a lot of space, especially if your friends are like my sister and speak only in gifs. By default, WhatsApp will download any media sent within a chat. Save your phone the 300 cat gifs and disable this annoying storage-eating setting by going following these steps:

  1. Open the app and go into your settings
  2. Select “Data Usage”
  3. Under “Media Auto-Download”, uncheck all the file types for mobile data, Wi-Fi, and roaming
 

2. Get some privacy

Similar to Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp also shows your contacts the last time you were online, which has got to be the handiest feature for creeps and robbers alike to know when you’re sleeping. Cut the creeps out of your life schedule by following these steps to disable this feature:

  1. Open the app and go into your settings
  2. Select “Account”
  3. Select “Privacy”
  4. Under “Last Seen”, select Nobody
 

3. Save your relationships

We’ve all been there, stuck in a meeting or on a terrible date, when a WhatsApp message comes in from a good friend. You check it quickly, then get sucked back into real life to quickly forget about it. Later that day, you get berated by said friend for ignoring their chat. Those damn blue ticks! Save yourself the headache, and your relationships by disabling the blue ticks altogether by following these steps:

  1. Open the app and go into your settings
  2. Select “Account”
  3. Select “Privacy”
  4. Uncheck “Read Receipts”

Note: This will not disable read receipts for group chats.

 

4. Really say what you mean
