Extract WhatsApp Data Files from Google Drive

This article aims to be a comprehensive guide on how to download Whatsapp Data Files from Google Drive storage. Today I will show you a method by which you can download the Whatsapp backup from google drive on your system. After downloading you can see the WhatsApp media files(Whatsapp Images, Audio files, Documents, Videos, and Messages ). So Let’s Get Started.

Introduction

The most well-known mobile texting app as of right now is Whatsapp. Everyone uses WhatsApp because it offers a lot of functions, which is why it is so popular.
If you use WhatsApp, you are probably aware of the functionality that allows WhatsApp to store all chat and media backups on Google Drive. The limitation of this feature is that we are unable to view or download the Google Drive backup of WhatsApp. We are unable to view WhatsApp backups on Google Drive as a result of WhatsApp’s security feature. But there is a method by which we can download all the WhatsApp backups from google drive on our system.

Note: As part of its security features, WhatsApp stores all of its messages and chats in a database that is encrypted, making it impossible to read the messages without decrypting the database. We need a key that is present on the phone in order to decrypt the database. The key may be obtained from the phone, and then the database can be decrypted and all messages can be viewed. There is a way to decrypt the Whatsapp database so we can read every communication. However, sometimes this approach is unsuccessful, and there is a risk that you could lose all of your WhatsApp data. I personally do not advise you to use this trick. But if you wish to try this trick depends on you.

Prerequisites
