When using WhatsApp on a daily basis, it is very likely that we receive photos and videos on our mobile. This causes the internal memory of the device to fill up easily, causing problems because it would prevent us from installing any other app we want later.
That is why we are forced to delete many files at once or in batch, and this causes that, without realizing it, we delete a photo or video that is very important to us and we do not know how to recover it. Below we will show you three methods to get that photo back on our mobile.
How to recover a deleted WhatsApp file on an Android phone
First check your device’s gallery and albums. Locate the folder named WhatsApp, there will be all the images received.
If you do not find the photo or video you deleted, go to the internal files of the smartphone. To do this, use Files by Google and look for the WhatsApp folder in the Explore tab.
If you have activated the Backup option of the app, you will only need to restore it. You must enter “Settings”, then “Chat” and finally “Backup”, all from WhatsApp. This will serve -if you make a daily backup- to find the photo or video you want to recover.
WhatsApp: by following these steps you will be able to prevent the app from accessing your image gallery.
What is WhatsApp?
Such a short question but with a very broad answer. WhatsApp is the world’s most popular instant messaging application for the latest generation of cell phones. It is used to send text and multimedia messages between its users. Its operation is similar to the most common instant messaging programs for computers.
Each user can identify themselves with their phone number. Currently, you only need to add a person to your contact list to automatically have the option to chat with them. To chat, it is essential that both the sender and the recipient have this application installed on their digital device.
