By default, WhatsApp backs up all the photos and videos you receive to your phone's memory. These media files can take up a lot of internet space and data! To remedy this, you can turn off automatic saving of all photos and videos.

This tutorial shows you all the steps to deactivate this option. Then you can still start the download of each file by hand, after receiving it.

  1. From the WhatsApp app, press the button Plus at the top left of the screen.
