Also, be careful, the archived chats are no longer encrypted.

iOS & Android:

go to the Settings > Chats > Chat Backup > Back Up Now.

28- Clear all chats

If you want to keep all the contacts, you talk to on WhatsApp but want to delete all your messages, WhatsApp offers you an easy option to do so.

32- Delete an individual message from a chat

Just as you can start a specific message in the chat, you also can delete an individual message from a conversation. You can also "delete for everyone" but all this done within 1 hour and 8 minutes and 16 seconds.

Selecting to delete for everyone will result in a message appearing in the chat, saying the message has been removed which looks suspicious.

iOS & Android:

Chat > Specific chat > Press and hold on the specific message you want to delete > Press Delete.

33. Send a Public Message Privately

Have you ever spent a free night and wanted to ask many of your friends if they did not need to open each conversation to ask them separately? You can send a broadcast message to your contact list, which appears as if you had individually requested it. Great for saving time, terrible if everyone responds yes.


Chats Broadcast lists> New menu> Add contacts.


Chat> Menu> New transition.

34. Know how long you have been ignored

There is nothing more disturbing than seeing those blue ticks appear without an answer shortly after. If you want to torture yourself a little more and find out when your message has already been read and how long it has been ignored, you can do it. We do not recommend this.


chat> specific chat> specific message> swipe left to right.


chat> specific chat> specific message> press and hold> Press the "i" information icon at the top.
