If you’ve ever wanted to save WhatsApp status from your friends, but don’t want to take screenshots, we’ve got a simple solution for you. WhatsApp stores all the viewed ‘Status’ locally on your device, but they’re hidden away in the internal storage.
In order to use this method, you’ll first need to download a third party file explorer like ES File Explorer. Once you’ve got the explorer you can follow the steps below to save WhatsApp status:
- Head to the settings on your file explorer and enable ‘Show hidden files’.
- Navigate to Internal Storage and locate the WhatsApp folder.
- Choose ‘Media’ in the WhatsApp folder and open the ‘.Statuses’ folder.
The ‘.Statuses’ folder contains all of the WhatsApp statuses you’ve viewed in the last 24 hours.
You can now choose whichever story you want to save and copy it to a different folder in your internal storage.
