How long do I have to delete a message?

What happens when I delete a message?
When you delete a message on WhatsApp, it is deleted for everyone in the group. The message content will no longer be visible in the chat and everyone will see “This message was deleted by admin XYZ” instead.
Why you should delete spam messages
Aside from the obvious reason of wanting to keep your WhatsApp group clean and organized, there are some other good reasons to delete spam messages.
First, spam messages can often contain malicious links that can infect your phone with malware or viruses. By deleting these messages, you protect yourself and the other group members who may not be very skilled at identifying spam messages.
Another reason to delete spam messages is that they can be a waste of time. If someone in your group is always sending spam messages, it can quickly become annoying and disrupt the conversation flow. Deleting these messages can help keep the chat more focused and enjoyable.
