Ever wanted to download WhatsApp status images and videos? The popular messaging platform does not let users do this right off the bat and is now banning users who use third-party apps like GB WhatsApp.

“Unsupported apps, like WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp, or those that claim to be able to move your WhatsApp chats from one phone to another, are altered versions of the app. These unofficial applications are developed by third parties and violate our Terms of Service. WhatsApp does not endorse the use of these third-party applications because it is not possible to validate their security practices.” WhatsApp Wrote.

However, there are still safe ways to download WhatsApp status images and videos.
