By default, photos found on WhatsApp are stored in the call gallery, so they are visible to it. Previously, the messaging app had no tricks to handle this, but they listened to the needs of its users and approved the process. This way, you now do not need to use third-party programs such as file managers. We tell you how to do it!
Remove WhatsApp Photos From Phone Gallery
To make WhatsApp photos not appear in the phone gallery, what you should do is the following:
- Go to the phone settings.
- Go to “Data and storage”.
- Deselect the “show media files in gallery” option.
Once you uncheck the box, the WhatsApp photos will disappear from your gallery, although it may take a while to update. Remember that for these to be shown again you must reverse the procedure.
