WhatsDump

Extract WhatsApp private key from any Android device (Android 7+ supported). This tool spawns a clean Android 6 emulator and attempts to register with your number to extract msgstore private key.

NOTE: this tool is in beta stage and might not be stable. You're more than welcome to improve this software by submitting a PR or an issue!

SUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEMS

  • Mac OSX
  • Windows
  • Linux

RELEASES

To use WhatsDump without installing Python and its dependencies, you can find pre-built binaries (thanks to PyInstaller) here: https://github.com/MarcoG3/WhatsDump/releases

You want to decrypt and/or extract msgstore.db database from your Android device.

  1. Install SDK with --install-sdk flag
  2. Attach Android device to USB port and launch WhatsDump
  3. Wait the script to quickly register your phone number on emulator
  4. Wait for SMS or CALL with confirmation code
  5. Input 6-digit confirmation code
  6. Private key is extracted in output/ directory

OPTIONS

--wa-phone Required WhatsApp phone number associated with msgstore database
from which you will receive verification SMS (with prefix, ex. +393387182291
--wa-verify Required Phone verification method to use (SMS or CALL)

--msgstore Optional Location of msgstore database to decrypt (or plug in device to USB port)
