Amid data security and protection crisis across globe mainly faced by Facebook in recent days which globalized #deleteFacebook campaign worldwide, instant messaging app WhatsApp for Android has introduced a new feature in its bucket that lets users download deleted media files from chat. Until now, if users deleted files sent over WhatsApp from the smartphone, they were not able to download it anymore. But from now on the messaging app will allow you to download deleted media files as well.
However, WhatsApp has assured that with the end-to-end encryption the data transferred between two users, who are on the latest versions of WhatsApp, are secured by unique secure code that only the two users can access. This security code is different for different chats and even WhatsApp can see these messages, claimed the messaging app.
As per the report from WABetaInfo, the feature was introduced in WhatsApp‘s updates between version 2.18.106 and 2.18.110. Now on-wards, when a media is successfully downloaded, WhatsApp doesn’t delete it from the server (contrary to it, earlier it was deleted from the WhatsApp server after 30 days), allowing the users to download it again if the file was accidentally deleted in the path where WhatsApp saves media.
If you have deleted the downloaded media content from the phone’s storage, you can go back to the chat conversation on WhatsApp. Once you find the media, just tap on it and it will be downloaded again ever after 60 days of deletion.
