How to Stop Automatic Download of Pictures & Videos on WhatsApp



Those of us that belong to different groups on WhatsApp might have noticed this, which can be completely disgusting; most times you check your gallery only to find out some strange pictures and videos… on a normal day, you won’t download such but your mobile boss automatically downloaded it on your behalf.


WhatsApp messenger is set automatically to download pictures posted in a group or individual chats with or without your consent. This is not nice because most people in groups post inappropriate pictures and the only way you can stop it from getting to your device without your consent is to set your WhatsApp messenger not to auto download pictures.

How Prevent WhatsApp From Downloading Pictures &Video Automatically?
>>Go to settings

>>Click on Data usage

>>Under media auto-download, click on when using mobile data, uncheck the button. Do the same for when using wifi.


Once you are through, hit the OK button and you are good to go.
With this new settings, no video or pictures will auto download again except you chose to download it.
