Not advisable in addition to security risks, whatsapp has been cracking down on accounts on modded software.

Someone just sent me this article and I really like the sound of this hack

https://thementch.com/how-to-use-whatsapp-as-your-personal-reminder-space/

Here is how you can make your own private space in WhatsApp to forward messages you want to save or simply jot down any thoughts, reminders, and the grocery list.


All you need to do is create a new group and add one person (preferably your spouse), name the group “Notes” or something else, then remove that person, and you now have your own personal space!

Once you send a message to your private group, it will be there for later and when you accomplish the task or note you sent there, you can delete it so not to clog up space.

How is this different than simply using Notepad? When tasks come up within Whatsapp, for example, a colleague asks you to handle “X,” you can simply forward the task to your personal chat. You don’t need to type it up in a separate list.

Tip:
...Pin the chat for easy access.
