In this quick guide, you will be learning ways to save WhatsApp status to your local storage.

So go through the below methods that teach you about saving your friends WhatsApp status anonymously.

Method 1: Using File manager

We all know that WhatsApp by default stores all your charts media and files locally on your device storage. Nothing is stored in WhatsApp servers like other instant messaging apps. So is the case with the new status.

Once the status is loaded for the first time it is saved locally so that users can view it at any point in time.

This logic of WhatsApp will help you to save WhatsApp status to your mobile so here is how you can take advantage of this logic.

  • For this trick, you need to install any popular file manager like ES File Explorer or Google File Go or any equivalent powerful file manager. If you already have these or any other skip this step.
  • Now open the file manager and navigate to WhatsApp folder in your phone storage.
  • By default, the folder where the status gets saved will be hidden. So in the File Manager options enable “show hidden files” to see the status folder.
  • Doing so a folder labelled as “statuses” will be visible to you where all your friend’s WhatsApp statuses get saved.
  • You can search for the required status in the folder and copy it to a different location.
  • Now rename it accordingly as per the file type with extensions like .jpg and .mp4 etc.,
  • This way you can save WhatsApp status to your local drive without rooting your Android device.
