How to delete a status update

All status updates are automatically deleted after 24 hours. However, if you wish to delete a status before it expires, you can do so by:
  1. Open WhatsApp > Status.
  2. Select the status update you wish to delete.
  3. Then press Delete > DELETE.
Note: If a contact is experiencing connection issues, the status update might still be visible to them.
