It not only provides you with the reduction, but also puts the business report for you which you have made on application that needs internet, such as the number of outgoing and incoming messages, the size of the media sent and received, and Size of messages and others which you find it When you go to Settings> Data and Storage usage > Network Usage.

Request your account information :
Both Facebook and Twitter have the “Account Information Request” feature in the form of a zip file, which includes not only your messages but also your likes, profile photo, friends’ names and more.
To do the same on your Whatsapp, go to Settings> Account> Request Account Information, then click “Request Report”. The report will then be set up but it will take from two to three days.
Send a conversation via mail :
You have on Whatsapp setting so-called backup chat, and so on You will find an option called “chat logs”, if you open it you will find an option called “sending chat via mail” to someone, then choose a conversation for a certain contact, and determine whether it is with the media or Without media, then open the e-mail, send it to the specified destination in the form of a text document.
Activate two-step verification :
at the first time you access Whatsapp , the application asks you for your phone number for a once not repeated, and makes sure that it is your number or not by sending a code to your phone for confirmation.
However, to increase security, you can activate two-Step Verification, which will enter your PIN when you re-register your phone number back to your Whatsapp account and even if your phone has your SIM card.
To enable it, go to Settings> Account> two-Step Verification, where you’ll be asked for a number of six symbols to enter it when you try to access your account from another phone, and you’ll be asked to enter mail if you forget that number.

Do you want to permanently finish and goodbye your friends’ reproach if you read their messages and do not reply? Go to Settings> Account> Privacy and remove the selection next to “read receipts.”
How to use site tracking :
Whether to avoid getting your parents worried about you or if you lose your friend and want to show your place, this is a great feature. All you need to do is share your location on your Whatsapp account by clicking the button on the shape “paper clip” at the bottom of the conversation and sharing your location.
Create a custom notification for contact :
When your phone connected to any Internet, Whatsapp notifications start jumping everywhere and suspiciously, especially if you have many contacts in your phone, but you need few of them to talk with them.
You can then customize them as a small group, and the way is after you open their conversation and click on their name from the top, you’ll find an option called “Custom notifications,” click on it, and go to the second interface, select “Use custom notifications” and do customize their messages in your own way.
Using Whatsapp on the computer :
One of the things that we thank Whatsapp designers on it the ability to use the application within the computer, rather than receiving messages and notifications within the phone can be transferred to the computer only when visiting the web.whatsapp.com on your computer. The site will display the QR code; all you have to do when you open the application is click on “Whatsapp Web” and will tell you the instructions to scan the code given by site to start chatting from the computer.
But its disadvantages to interrupt your connection to the application when closed by the phone, which must be synchronized, and the advantage here is to use a larger screen and a wider keyboard.
