If I Delete a Message on WhatsApp, Other People Know About It?


I would like to delete some message in group chat. However this messages already removed at the chat screen of my friends or they get something like notification when I delete these messages? I need your guidance about this problem. I need to remove these chats as soon as possible.


With new update of WhatsApp, you can delete messages for everyone. However people will able to see that a message has been deleted by you.

Thanks for the question and welcome to How to Chat Online. The answer of your main question is “No, they don’t know anything about that”. You can delete any message you want. If you would like to remove these messages from your device at all, you can also delete message from your phone permanently. When you delete a message on your device, no one is getting notification nor a message about that. They will see all conversation on their phone and they won’t understand what you have deleted from your phone at all.
