Whapa – Whatsapp Parser

Whapa is a whatsapp database parser that automates the process. The main purpose of whapa is to present the data handled by the Sqlite database in a way that is comprehensible to the analyst. The Script is written in Python 2.x

The software is divided into three modes:

  • Message Mode: It analyzes all messages in the database, applying different filters. It extracts thumbnails when they’re availables.
  • Decryption Mode: Decrypt crypto12 databases as long as we have the key.
  • Info Mode: Displays different information about statuses, broadcasts list and groups.

Please note that this project is an early stage. As such, you could find errors. Use it at your own risk!

Bonus: It also comes with a tool to download the backup copies of google drive associated with a smartphone.
