Whatsapp Files Path

I got some things while going through my file manager as on android 11 we can’t access files in android folders . So I got an image which I recieved on whatsapp when I checked details of that image I got this file path

Is this original path? If Yes then we can get Path of statues Also and that will help the. Status saver apps because my status saver apps are not working
Here are some of them

On Android 11, Google restricted access to files in the Android folder. This happens with applications targeting Android 11, so if you were to downgrade your file manager to a version where they targeted Android 10, you should be fine.


Google Files can access those folders

Images which you received on whatsapp and the statuses have different file paths. so it is of no use.
