    Hi,
    I need help please and I am willing to donate $5 to the person who will find the solution to my problem. I'm sorry, in case talking about money is against this forum, but it would be just a mere donation!
    I need to delete messages I sent, years ago, on whatsapp to some people and I need those messages to be deleted for everyone.
    Messages are dated years 2017 - 2018, and I need them to be deleted for everyone, so that, those people cannot see anymore what I wrote.
    I use android os.
    If I try to delete those messages I only get the "delete for me" option, which is useless. I want the "delete for everyone" option to appear, so that those messages will be deleted on the other people's phones.
    I use an old android os, 5 (i think), but in order to have a bigger screen I'm now using whatsapp on bluestacks.
    Can anyone please help me?
    Do i need to root android? Or in this case bluestacks ( i know how to do it) ?
    I found a method on youtube but I dont understand if it works. Am I allowed to paste the link here, so I can show you guys?
    Right now I'm sending messages to my second number to see if this method works, but the messages dated two days ago have not been deleted, the messages dated today have been , so I am confused.
    The other problem is that whatsapp detects when i change the date and time and i travel to the past, so it is tricky.
    Donation will happen via paypal probably.
    Please find a way to solve my problem.
    Ask me for more details if you need more information.
    This is not a race and I am willing to split the donation, so please let's all cooperate with each other instead of competing.
    Regards

    sorry can't be done. you messages are sent as data to each individual phone. once sent it is out there and nothing can't be done. its kind of like emails. once they are sent you can't take them back

    I don't see how rooting will help. Your phone doesn't have access to their inbox except via WhatsApp's servers, and rooting your phone won't give you privileged access to them.

    WhatsApp have a time limit for deletion which is quite short (WhatsApp themselves say "about an hour"). So when you are dealing with messages from years ago you are a long way outside that range. I don't know whether WhatsApp even keep the links they'd need to identity and delete a message delivered 2-3 years ago, and if they have those records they will have the timestamps that tell them when they were delivered, so I can't see how messing with the clock on your phone would change that.

    In short, I'm sure you are wasting your time here.
