People love forwarding messages on Whatsapp but they sometimes want to pretend that the message was originally from them and not forwarded as received. If you have ever forwarded a message then you know that every time you forward an image, video, link, or text, it adds a forwarded sign with the message.
In today’s post, I’ll show you a trick to remove the forwarded icon from all the messages that you forward. We will not install any extra applications here. Basically, the trick is, we will use the share option instead of the forwarding option.
Share option is similar to the forwarding option and lets you share media files and links with your friends over Whatsapp. This option is available for Images, videos, and links.
