By default, WhatsApp saves the pictures you receive to your device’s camera roll or gallery. However, if you prefer not to have WhatsApp automatically save pictures to your camera roll, you can disable this feature. Please note that the steps may vary slightly depending on the version of WhatsApp and the operating system of your device. Here’s a general guide:

For iPhone:

1. Open the WhatsApp app on your iPhone.

2. Click on the “Settings” tab located at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

3. In the Settings menu, select “Chats”.

4. Look for the “Save to Camera Roll” option. Toggle the switch to the “Off” position.

By disabling this option, WhatsApp will no longer automatically save pictures to your iPhone’s camera roll.

For Android:

1. Open the WhatsApp app on your Android device.

2. Click on the three-dot menu icon located at the top-right corner of the screen to open the menu.

3. Select “Settings” from the menu.

4. In the Settings menu, choose “Storage and data”.

5. Look for the “Media auto-download” or “When connected on Wi-Fi” option. You may find separate settings for images, audio, and video. Tap on the respective media type.

6. Disable the “Photos” or “Images” option. If you prefer not to save other media types, you can disable those as well.

By disabling the photo-saving option within the media auto-download settings, WhatsApp won’t automatically save pictures to your Android device’s gallery.

Note: Be aware that by turning off this option, you’ll need to manually save images you want to keep by tapping on them within the WhatsApp chat and selecting the “Save” option. Additionally, other media types such as videos or audio files will also need to be saved manually if desired.

I hope this helps you disable WhatsApp from automatically saving pictures to your camera roll.
