Earlier if users have deleted media files, they can’t be redownload and WhatsApp put all the media files in its server for 30 days if you download those media files WhatsApp will delete those file from its server and after 30 days those files will automatically erased from WhatsApp’s server.
WhatsApp for Android added some new feature and bug fixes in its recent updates.Now users can redownload their media files even if they delete them and media files includes images,GIFs,videos and doucuments.This feature might appears on WhatsApp versions between 2.18.106 to 2.18.113.If user has deleted media file from gallery then he/she can download deleted media files however, if they have deleted from WhatsApp by holding the message containing that file and press the delete button, then in this case thay won’t be able to download those files and to download deleted media files user just need message of particular media file to recover their data.
This means WhatsApp will store users data (media files) in its server even after downloading,it won’t delete those files as before.We all know that WhatsApp is owned by Facebook and we all are aware about the Cambridge Analytica controvercy and now the question arises, Is our WhatsApp data safe? The answer is yes its safe because WhatsApp knew that this question will rise as it is owned by Facebook, WhatsApp tells its users that their chats and data are ene-to-end encrypted no one in between can read their conversation and listen to their calls, not even WhatsApp itself.
After this statement by WhatsApp it is confirmed that it is safe and on one can come in between.Lets see in which verion of WhatsApp thisnew feature will rolls out and I think this feature will surely help us because sometimes we have accidentlly delete our media files which are important for us but after this feature this problem will be solve and we can download deleted media files within two months.
