Do you usually view a lot of WhatsApp status’? If you have a lot of contacts, then you have a long list of statuses to see, that is, if you view them all. But, if you can’t leave a status unseen, then many images are saved only on your Android device even though you don’t see them on your device’s gallery.
In time, all those status images will start to take up some important storage space. The good news is that there’s an app that can find those hidden WhatsApp status pictures so you can erase them. The app can not only find those WhatsApp pictures but other hidden images you may have forgotten about.

How long the scanning process takes depends on how many pictures you have on your phone. Once it’s done, it’ll show you a message on how many hidden images it was able to find.
