Why archiving conversations on WhatsApp is not recommended

However, not everyone handles the application perfectly.

The ‘archive chats’ feature allows you to hide individual or group conversations from the chat list in order to better organize your conversations.
This feature does not delete chat or save a backup of this on your SD memory card directly.
When you receive a new message in an archived chat, either individual or group, it is automatically unarchived and appears again in your chat list.
The thing is, doing so doesn’t technically waste space directly from the SD, but yes from his cell phone.

Doing it frequently can dramatically increase the weight of the app and the space it uses in the memory of the device.
For example, a daily conversation, after receiving photos, video clips, GIFs, among other multimedia content, can use about 10 MB. Multiply this by the number of archived chats you have.
Each element of an archived chat will gradually fill the capacity of your device. Unless it is completely necessary to archive it (a future consultation on a conversation), it is advisable to empty chats that you do not use.
