How to download WhatsApp Status Videos & Photos without Third-party app.

Ever seen someone post an interesting video or photo on their WhatsApp status and you wished you could download it and also share to your contacts?

Today I'm going to teach you the safest way to download WhatsApp Status Videos and photos without using any third-party app. I've also provided a lot of images to make it very easy for you to understand. Read till the end.

WhatsApp is the largest messenger in the world boasting of over 5 billion downloads on Playstore alone.

The app became popular due to its simplicity and ease of use. With over 24 million Nigerians who use the app daily, for business communications and personal chats, the relevance of WhatsApp to the average Nigerian is almost irreplaceable.

Three years ago, WhatsApp Inc introduced WhatsApp Status which allows you to share text, images, video and GIF updates that disappear after 24 hours.

This functionality has won the heart of many users as people are always teeming with excitement to share updates about their day, or post videos and photos about an event they attended.

WhatsApp Status is a great way to engage members of your contact and have them remember you.

It's not uncommon for someone on your contact to post a funny video or photo and you want to have it saved on your device so you could always go back to it at your convenience and probably reshare to your friends.

WhatsApp doesn't provide the inbuilt functionality to download statuses. This then resulted in the emergence of several WhatsApp Status Saver apps.

While these third-party apps appear to get the job done, it is not advisable to use them. Using third-party apps to download WhatsApp statuses can expose your account to threats of hacking. It's not safe to use.

However, there is a more appropriateeasy and safe way to download WhatsApp status videos and photos that don't require the use of third-party apps.

Today, I'm going to teach you how to download WhatsApp status videos and photos without the use of third-party apps.


Step 1. 

After viewing a WhatsApp status you want to save, go to your file manager.


Step 2.

In your file manager, head to settings. For most devices, you can find the file manager settings by clicking the hamburger icon located at the top left corner of your screen.


Step 3. 

In the settings tab, you'll find the "show hidden files" option. Enable it.


Step 4. 

When this is done, head to your internal storage and then click on the WhatsApp option.


Step 5. 

Inside the WhatsApp option, click on the "media" option.

Step 6. 

You'll find ".statuses", simply click on this.

Upon opening this folder, you'll find all the statutes you've viewed for the day.

Step 7. 

Simply copy the WhatsApp photo or video you want to download and head over to another folder and paste it there.

Upon doing this, you've successfully downloaded the WhatsApp video or image.

There you go. Easy and clean. Now you owe me a beer.
