Messages not received from WhatsApp have an expiration date

Surely in some other occasion you have wondered where the messages, pictures or videos that you send by WhatsApp are going to stop , and especially those that never reach their destination, either because the user has the mobile device turned off or because You have sent it to a number that for example does not exist.

To give you an answer we have decided to investigate a bit between the official information provided by WhatsApp about it, and the truth is that we have been somewhat surprised. And is that the messages we send to other users , and that they receive, regardless of whether they read or not, go through the servers of the service , without staying stored in them.

If they are saved in a local copy on the mobile device, but nothing else to be received they disappear from the WhatsApp servers. However there are messages that although they are sent, they are never received by another user, staying on this occasion stored in the servers . Of course, they do not do it forever.

As we have been able to confirm any message, image or voice file that have been sent, but not received, they remain stored for 30 days on the WhatsApp servers and then be deleted , without the possibility of being recovered. This undoubtedly has some logic and is that if in 30 days have not been received, it will be difficult to do so at some point.

Now that you know this information, you can rest assured that WhatsApp does not save any messages you send on their servers . What you should keep in mind is that if you are going to have your smartphone for a long time off, you will lose all the messages sent to you if the shutdown is prolonged beyond 30 days.

Did you know that WhatsApp messages sent but not received remained for 30 days on the servers of the service?
