'Delete for everyone' removes both text and media files
WhatsApp's 'Delete for everyone' option retracts all kinds of content, be it a simple text message or media file (photo or video).
It immediately makes the content inaccessible for the recipient, but application security consultant Shitesh Sachan noted that this is not the case for iPhone users who receive photos, videos in group chats and have the 'Save to Camera Roll' setting enabled.
"This feature is working properly, and using the 'Delete for everyone' feature in time will result in media being removed," the spokesperson said. "If user chooses to save images to their camera roll they are stored out of reach of WhatsApp's 'Delete for everyone' feature."
