Do you want to save your friends’ profile pictures on your phone? Do you want to keep the profile picture of someone special on your camera roll? The following is a short guide to store these photos on iPhone and Android.
Sometimes we need to save the WhatsApp profile pictures of someone for different reasons: they are the person we fell in love with, are stalking us, are the ideal lover for our friends, or their profile picture is simply amazing (learn how to choose the right profile picture).
