Using Warn

It is Warn is an app available on the Play Store that will serve to recover deleted messages, but also gives you the possibility to download those statuses you want. As the choice is by the user this will allow you to preview them without using the WhatsApp app.

To start using it, do the following:

  • The first step is to download the app from the Play Store, it is available at this link
  • After downloading and installing it, give the permissions that it asks for, which are important to start using it.
  • Download the status of the contact you want, you can go down one by one and have each of them safely, then go to the “Downloads” folder on your device and view the one you want.


Both methods are effective to prevent our contacts from finding out if we have seen any of their statuses. But in case you do not want to use any app. You can always disable the reading confirmations from the WhatsApp privacy section. Thanks for reading us. Bye!
