WhatsApp users’ privacy at risk Report

The report further states that the version between the 2.18.106 and 2.18.110 updates has got the new feature, which will let you download deleted media from the servers.

If the user has deleted the downloaded media content in the phone's storage, he/she can go back to the chat conversation on WhatsApp. This feature rolled out incrementally to all users, Whatsapp is adding more features, functionality to Whatsapp payments with new updates. According to the report, the recipient was able to download media from a text sent 2 months ago but there for the messages dating back to nearly a year, the application asks to request the sender to send the file again.

In a related development, WhatsApp is testing a new feature which would allow users to customize the shape and size of the WhatsApp icon on the home screen. But now those files can be re-downloaded, thanks to the latest update. However, the feature only works for content that has been received in the past few months provided the user has only deleted the file and not the chat in the app. Extremely old stuff from August 2017 wasn't accessible at all, with WhatsApp simply asking them to request the sender to forward the media again. Once you find the media, just tap on it and it will be downloaded again.




It is worth noting that if you delete a media file from the folder in your smartphone, you need to have the message where the sender sent you the specific file, in order to be able to download it again.

This new WhatsApp feature comes amid recent outrage over data leak by Facebook. Earlier, WhatsApp allowed users to download files for 30 days, but the data would disappear once the file was downloaded by the recipient. However, WhatsApp had recently announced that their data and chats are secured with end-to-end encryption and nobody can read messages and listen to calls. It has made a decision to store all the messages and multimedia content on its server even if it is downloaded by the user.
