I have had my device taken off me and have done the following ... will this be of some use to me ?

  1. I obtained a new sim card registered to my old number ,then using a new device ... I logged on to whatsapp and DELETED the account! (Not uninstalled ) ... if the phone is switched off while the data still disappear from the old device ?

A. If the answer is YES can the data be retreived in any way

B. If the answer is NO then how can I make sure it can not be retrieved ?

  1. I have send a number of erase my dat a requests all are pending ?

  2. If I have disconnected my old device from google drive is there anyway I could reconnect it ??

  3. I have been told that unless the old device is on the grid so to speak it won't pick up the erase request ? Will it still be possible to block IMEI number and there for block data extraction ?

  1. No.
    Open the WhatsApp folder and tap on Database folder. From Database folder; tap and select all database files. After selecting all files simply delete them all.
    In this way, the Whatsapp backup of your chats will delete permanently on your old Android Phone.
