WhatsApp is definitely the best chatting app ever made for Android & iPhone. Though there are many other apps competing with WhatsApp some of which are even hiring filmstars for promotions, I don’t see WhatsApp losing its market anytime soon. Further after Facebook bought Whatsapp, the future of Whatsapp is even more secure. After the acquirement Whatsapp has seen many changes which include the option to hide your profile picture, last seen time, status and more. Apart from that, there’s lot more you can do with Whatsapp, and that’s why I decided to write this piece containing some useful WhatsApp tricks.

Update: We’ve added 4 more tricks, which takes the total number of tricks we have here to 16. Share with us more tricks fellas so that we can add them here.

NOTE: We don’t teach you to hack into your friend’s Whatsapp account or access your girlfriend’s WhatsApp account without her consent. In fact, I’m the last guy you should talk to if you are looking for something hacking related. So, if learning hacking is your goal, may be you should leave this blog right now and get in touch with Ankit Fadia! I’ve covered some new tricks or tips down which enable you do make a better use of WhatsApp and improve your total experience. Well by chance you’re here to read about WhatsApp ticks, follow this link.

WhatsApp Tricks – Top 16

#1 Hide WhatsApp Last Seen Time

WhatsApp is the best chatting application. The only problem with it is that it doesn’t allow you to hide your last seen time from your friends or stalkers. WhatsApp for iPhone does, but it’s Android, Windows and BB counterpart doesn’t.

Well, I looked for ways, apps anything that could help me in hiding my last seen to find a couple of working techniques. So if you’re looking forward to disable your last seen at time-stamp, follow this link.

Update 1: Whatsapp for Android now allows you to hide your last seen time. You no longer need to use additional apps or to turn on and off your internet connection to hide your last seen time.

#2 Use WhatsApp Without Your Mobile Number

Do you have a mobile number but for some reason do not want to use it on WhatsApp? Do you often indulge in group chats with several unknown people to whom you don’t wanna reveal your phone number? Do not worry. You can do that. Here’s how:

  1. If you are already using WhatsApp, uninstall it from your device completely. You can keep the SD card files i.e. the images if you want. Download and install it again.
  2. Now when you open WhatsApp it’ll ask you to verify your phone number. It automatically sends a verification message to its server. But if this happens your number gets registered with them. So block your message service. You can simply put your phone on flight mode so that all network connections are disabled. You can alternatively change the message center number. Remember the old one of course.
  3. It’ll ask you to choose an alternate method to verify. Choose ‘Verify through SMS’ and give your email address. Click on ‘Send’ and without waiting even for a second click on ‘Cancel’. This terminates the authorization process.
  4. Now you have to spoof that message. You can try Fake-a-Message for iOS.
  5. Go to your Outbox -> Copy the message details to the Spoofer app -> Send it to spoofed verification.
  6. Use the following details.
    To: +447900347295
    From: +(Country code)(mobile number)
    Message: Your email address
  7. A message will be sent through that spoofed number. You can use this number to connect with your friends.

fake a message

I don’t know if you should be trying this or not because people may hesitate to respond to unknown numbers. You may fall in trouble if you misuse this trick, so use it with caution. It’s always a good idea to use your real phone number.

Update: The Spoofer app for Android is no longer available. I will update this post when I find an alternative.

P.S: You can however search Google for the APK and try using it.

#3 Recover Deleted Messages

Recover deleting messages on WhatsApp after you’ve deleted it from within the app is possible without any additional recovery software. WhatsApp by default stores all your conversations and activity on your SD card. This is helpful if you ever lose your messages or to view your messages after you’ve deleted it from WhatsApp.

Go to: SD card -> WhatsApp -> Databases and look for two files named – msgstore-yyyy-mm-dd.1.db.crypt5 and msgtore.db.crypt.

The first file contains all the messages you’ve sent or received in the last seven days (yyyy-mm-dd.1 correspond to the respective year, month and day and the 1 after dd signifies that it was the first backup taken on that day) while the second file contains all messages sent or received on that day.

To restore your Whatsapp messages, rename msgtore.db.crypt to OLDmsgtore.db.crypt or something to identify the old backup easily, so in case if something goes wrong, you can try again. Select the database you wish to restore from the files left and rename it to msgtore.db.crypt. Uninstall and re-install Whatsapp and when prompted choose Restore. The chat file you saved with the name msgtore.db.crypt is restored. Restoring an earlier database, automatically clears your current chat history and there’s no way to merge your old database and your current chat history.

While you cannot open these files with a text editor since they’re encrypted, you can anyways use Whatsapp Xtract to read your Whatsapp database on computer.

#4 Send Two Images in One

Have you received an image where at first you see a hot chic and when you click on the image you get to see a monkey? There’s no trick but an app to do it. Try Magiapp tricks for WhatsApp for android and FhumbApp for iPhone. Using them you can hide your best pics inside others. Unfortunately there’s not much you can do if you own a Windows phone or BlackBerry except forwarding those images and even then you can’t be sure if it’ll work.

Update: Magiapp tricks and Flumbpass both the apps are no longer available. If you have an Android, you can try finding the APK online and if you’re an iPhone user (and if it’s jailbreaked), then you can try searching for the install file online.

#5 Get Contacts Profile Pictures

When you are checking out your friend’s profile picture there’s no way to store it. WhatsApp doesn’t provide an option to save the image. Of course you can take a screenshot, but then you’ll have to crop the unnecessary part. Do not worry, Whatsapp saves all the profile pictures you view automatically which you can find in SD card -> WhatsApp -> Profile Pictures. The images will be associated to you friend’s mobile number and not his name. Have an easy time searching for the image ;)

#6 Change Your Friends’ Profile Picture

Nah, you’ll not be making the change globally, but changing your friend’s profile picture only on your phone is sufficient to scare the hell outta him. Here’s how you can do it.

  1. Choose a profile picture for your friend. Use Google Image search for cute looking monkeys and donkeys or weird looking people.
  2. Resize the image to 561×561 pixels using Paint or Photoshop and name it with your friend’s mobile phone number.
  3. Save the image in SD card -> WhatsApp -> Profile Pictures. Overwrite an existing image if required.
  4. Disable WiFi and data network. If you don’t WhatsApp will automatically update the picture. Now show it to your friend who’ll panic instantly!

Note: This is not a hack, but simply a trick to change your friend’s profile picture only on your device. This is meant for fun purpose only.

#7 Create a Fake Conversation

Noticed the fake conversations between Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Rahul Dravid and Suresh Raina prevailing on Facebook where in they make fun of each other? Ever wanted to do that yourself? With the help of an app like WhatSaid you can easily create fake conversations and play pranks on your friends. Don’t use it to spoil someone’s life though, please. There isn’t a similar app for iPhone though.

Update: WhatSaid was recently removed from the Google Play Store. Here’s an alternate link to download WhatSaid.

#8 Send PDF, APK, ZIP & More

Unlike most chat apps, WhatsApp doesn’t allow you to send documents. But with an additional app like Cloud Send you can send PDFs, APKs, Word documents and more using WhatsApp. A better way is to install Google Drive on your mobile phone, upload the documents and send your friend the link to the documents.

#9 Hide Your Profile Picture

I’m not really sure why you’d want to hide your profile picture. No one looks that bad to be not seen by people. Anyways with an application like WhatsApp Plus, you can hide your profile picture on Android. WhatsApp Plus is not available on the Play Store and there are several fakes available online so make sure you download it from a reliable source like the one I shared. A better way is to not set a profile picture if you don’t want others to see how you look on screen. Thus you’ll save on memory!

Update: You no longer need to use WhatsApp Plus to hide your Whatsapp profile picture. You can hide your profile picture by simply navigating to WhatsApp Settings -> Account -> Privacy -> Profile photo and choose My contacts or Nobody. An alternate to this is to simply not set a profile picture.

#10 Stop Automatic Media Download

By installing the same app, WhatsApp Plus you can stop WhatsApp from downloading images automatically.

Update: You no longer need to use WhatsApp Plus to prevent auto-downloading of images or other media. WhatsApp now allows you to control it from the pap itself. Simply go to Settings -> Chat Settings -> Media auto-download -> Check ‘When using mobile data’, ‘When connected on WiFi’ and ‘When roaming’ one by one and uncheck all the sub-options!

#11 Find Out Your WhatsApp Statistics

Want to know who texts you the most? Want to know if that girl or guy has a crush on you? Find it using WhatStat for Android or iPhone. It shows you everything in neat organized graphs. I first came across this app when a friend uploaded some graphs he had created using WhatStat on our college group on WhatsApp. If you are okay with simple statistics, you can view your statistics by going to Settings -> Account -> Network Usage.

#12 Change Phone Number Linked With WhatsApp

Lost your old phone number? Got a new number? Want to use the same with WhatsApp? Want to change your old number associated with WhatsApp without losing access to all the groups you had joined? Here’s how you can do it.

Go to Settings -> Account -> Change Number -> Type both your old and new phone number and hit ‘Done’. For a more detailed tutorial on the same you can check out this post.

#13 Lock WhatsApp

Do your friends often use your mobile phone? Does someone sneak peek at your WhatsApp messages? Well a way to prevent that from happening is to lock WhatsApp. To lock Whatsapp on BlackBerry follow this link and to lock WhatsApp on Android follow this link. You can even use other Android lockers to hide or lock WhatsApp with a password, pin or a pattern.

#14 Schedule a Message on WhatsApp

I’ve a bad memory. I often forget my parents’ anniversary and my best friend’s birthday. Do you face the same problem as me? May be you should try scheduling a message on WhatsApp and never again forget a birthday, anniversary or any other important occasion that you cannot simply afford to miss. Also if you are among those wishing people good morning and night everyday, you should use probably use an app which automates that for you!

I could find three apps which enable you to schedule a WhatsApp message for a later instance.

These are just a couple of interesting things you can do with WhatsApp. As I end this post I’m still looking for more WhatsApp tricks and I will continue to share all of them here as I come across them. If you’ve any WhatsApp tricks to share for any platform just comment and I’d be more than happy to include it in this list with proper credits. Stay tuned!

    Hi. I guess you could load this trick up. To read the incoming messages on whatsapp without even making the status to turn online, simply turn off the data service or just go flight mode. The trick can also be used when you want to reply someone’s message at midnight. But that could be quite difficult and hassle. But atleast it could save some relationship especially couples. Perhaps you could write this thing in a better words. Thats all ✌️

    Not sure if its already been mentioned but i have two queries.

    1. Is there a way to download an image you’ve been sent on Whatsapp but not save it in your gallery? I managed to do this on my iphone but since i’ve moved over to Android i can’t find this setting. I don’t want all pics i receive to be saved, i want to have the option.

    2. Is there anyway to add someone on Whatapp and send messages without them knowing your mobile number? Like other apps like KIK, BBM etc you only need an ID. Will it only work if you do the 1st trick in this article?

    saksham ive something really important to ask concerning whattsapp. wonder why no one has mentioned it yet or maybe i missed it. as a group admin ive noticed that any group member can change the group title and the group icon and im surprised that whatsapp has given the admin no privileges here. the only thing the admin can do is to add a person wanting to bcum a member or remove him the latter of which even the member himself can do. ive looked high and low for a remedy to offset this but to no avail. if its not a bother cud u please check up on this vital issue and cum up with a solution.

      No, it’s not possible. If you manage to install an app on her phone which backs up her phone on a cloud, you can then using your computer have a look at her messages. I’m not sure though. I haven’t tried it anyway.

      I didn’t understand your question. Do you mean when you send a new message to any of your contact, he shouldn’t see your phone number? That’s not possible.

    Is there any way to find out who has my number saved? If I don’t have that person’s number ?
    Because if a stranger has my number saved, it basically means that that person can see everything my profile picture, status … :/

      Plus, Whatsapp had updated … Only the people who had my number, and I had theirs, could see my picture. But it is no longer the case :(

      Go to Settings -> Account -> Privacy and change everything to “My Contacts”. This way only people whose number you’ve stored in your phone will be able to see your profile picture or status.

    Dude…
    Is der any way to hide a specific conversation in what’s app…? Some thing like audio manager where v can hide specific msgs n calls… is dat possible for what’s app?

    • Saksham Talwar

      Well I don’t think you can do that. You can anyways have a different name for the sender in your contacts and that will display in your WhatsApp too. Anyways this isn’t a fool-proof method because you’ll have the same profile picture irrespective of whatever the name you have.

      Oh, it seems Whatsapp has got rid of that old option to use an email address. It doesn’t work for most of them now.

    Hey bro,
    After updating Whatsapp, i m unable to update some profile pics.
    it shows error i.e. Failed to update profile photo.
    U have any solution for this?

    Reply
    • Saksham Talwar

      Well after the new WhatsApp update, you do not get to see the profile pictures of people who don’t have you in their contacts. I’m A and you are B and if you want to see my WhatsApp display picture I (A) should have you in my contacts.

    Saksham, can you provide the link for WhatSaid. Playstore says that the app is not available in your country. (-.-‘)

      You can now hide your profile picture without using Whatsapp Plus Simply go to Settings -> Account -> Privacy and set Profile Photo to Nobody or My Contacts.

    Whatsapp has now added this security feature of making profile pics invisible for those contacts who haven’t saved our number on their phone. Can you try something on this so that we can see profile pics of people who dont have our number?

    Reply
    • Saksham Talwar

      Yeah, I’m trying to find a Work-around for that so we can see pictures of WhatsApp users who haven’t stored my number on their phone. So far no success. Also there has been some news that WhatsApp Plus is soon gonna include that feature in their package.

        There have been some complaints that it doesn’t work, but it worked for me when I tried it. Let me try it again.

        I wanted to let you know a few Grammar nazis died after reading your comment. I on the other hand think that evolution of humans may have already started going downhill

    Very interesting tips and tricks. The friend’s picture change will be visible only on our phone na?
    Will try to hide the last seen at thing. :)

    Reply
    • Saksham Talwar

      Yes Shilpa, it’ll be visible only on your phone and next time you turn on your WiFi or data network connection WhatsApp will automatically update the profile picture with the one the user has set. So make sure when you play this prank, the internet is turned off. ;)

        u have any idea how can read someone whatsapp messages… waiting for ur replay..

        On friday my bf got a call about 11pm he said its his partner i jus want to know if his still cheating on me so i can live how can i get his whatassp messages about a week ago without having his phone please help me out of this unfaithful relationship

      • Saksham Talwar

        I don’t think there’s a way to read his messages without accessing his mobile phone. So be good with him for sometime, get access to his phone somehow and read the messages quickly. Moreover chances are high he might have already deleted the messages!

      • Saksham Talwar

        Except getting access to their mobile phone or hacking into their mobile phone using ways I’m not aware off, you can read others’ messages.

      • Nishant Jain

        Plz let me know is there any way so that we didn’t get added in any group without our permission ?? if i don’t won’t too join the group the simple way is to delete and exit the group but what to do if someone adds again and again unnecessarly and creating problems……..plz reply with some good solution asap.

      • Saksham Talwar

        There’s no way you can do that. I couldn’t find an app that lets you do that. You can try blocking the person who adds you to groups without your permission. I’m not sure i it’ll work though.

      • lee

        hey p;z help me someone send me a message on whatsapp then when i oped it ,it disappeared do you have a idea of which kind of soft he may used?

      • Saksham Talwar

        I don’t think there’s a software / app available which can help you send temporary messages like SnapChat does on Whatsapp. Meanwhile I’m still searching Play Store and if I find something I’ll make sure to alert you.

      • Saksham Talwar

        Not yet. I’ll get back to you here when I find a solution.

      • Saksham Talwar

        Those files are encrypted and can’t be read using a normal text editor.

        I changed my phone and my line as well ,my old line has been deactivated so l cant use it anymore but l soo want to use my old whatsapp acc on my new phone is that even possible if so how do l do it??

      • Saksham Talwar

        Is your Whatsapp still working with your old line? You can try changing the number associated with your account to an new number if it’s working. Else contacting Whatsapp support is the only option left.

    • Kunal

        Did you follow all the steps correctly? The change won’t be reflected on your friend’s phone if you missed it.
