How to Copy About and Text Status on WhatsApp

You can copy the text status and about on WhatsApp.

You can do the former on WhatsApp for Android only and the latter on the WhatsApp app, Web, and Desktop app.

I use Windows 11 PC, iPhone X, and Google Pixel 4a (Android 12). Let’s start with the about.

Copy About on WhatsApp (Android Phone or iPhone)

Note: On an Android device, you can only copy the about of yours.

To copy your about, follow these steps:

  2. Tap your about at the top and tap your about beneath “About.”
  3. Hit your about. Select it if you’re on an iPhone. Else, long-press it.
  4. Hit the Copy option to copy it.

That’s it.

To copy other people’s about, follow these steps:

Please open the chat of the contact you prefer and hit their name at the top.

You can now see the about which you need to long press.

Hit the Copy option, and that’s all.
