Tricks that are working not more

There are some tricks that I read on the internet but not working given the blow.

Prank someone by a message In past few years, a message looks like and when you send it to someone WhatsApp will automatically close. Now Company fixed this feature on his next app version.

Create a fake chat Due to updates now WhatsApp interface is changed so this trick also working not more but you can create fake chat of a previous looking version with the help of whatsfake or yazzy.

Reading someone message by copying database folder Seriously too many bloggers posting hack WhatsApp by copying the files of database folder but I have tried this trick and it is not working. When we change number company detects this and you can’t restore message although there will option for restoring message but you can’t.

Use WhatsApp free for the lifetime: Now WhatsApp is completely free. There are no charges.  So no need of this trick.

Hide photo and videos When we install Whatsapp it makes some folders in file manager some of these folders are not shown photos videos in the gallery. So you can hide photos or videos using these folders. Move your photos videos to given folder to hide from the gallery.
Whatsapp→Profile picture (New version does not create any Profile picture folder so you can’t hide photos and videos)
