WhatsApp disappearing messages

Who has not always wished to be able to delete WhatsApp messages afterwards. While the function is still not available in the normal settings, Whatsapp now offers disappearing messages. However, these have to be activated for each chat and apply to all messages from that point on. Therefore, if you ever want to send something that disappears after 7 days, a disappearing message in WhatsApp is the right solution! But beware. The messages are not 100% secure with this!

Disappearing message on Whatsapp – the disadvantage

If you think that a message has been irrevocably removed after 7 days, you only know half the truth. Yes, the message disappears from the chat. No, this does not mean that there is no copy of it. So there is still a possibility that the recipient takes a screenshot around chat. And even if you send pictures or other files, they will still be stored on the other person’s smartphone. They are just no longer accessible in the WhatsApp chat. Therefore, the function is not a license for embarrassing messages.

Step-by-step instructions:

  • Open Whatsapp
  • Click on the contact for whom you want to enable the function
  • Click above the chat on the contact name
  • Select “Disappearing messages” on the right and enable the function
  • You will now see a notice in the chat that all subsequent messages will be deleted after 7 days. It is similar if you deactivate the function. This way you can easily track which messages were sent under which setting
  • Done!

Turning on the function is done quickly. Taking into account the disadvantages described above, you can thus have messages deleted after seven days. We therefore wish you a lot of fun with any messages that require this function. But always stay well behaved!
