Cant stop photos auto downloading

dustinlahn - Dec 30, 2020 at 09:18 PM
Hello, i have an iphone.
my phone gets full of photos that people send through messanger and whats app.
I saw several websites and videos with instructions on how to enable or disable automatically downloading photos from messanger in settings, but in my settings there is no "data and storage" option under preferences.... its like I have a different version of messager than everything else? and in "photos and media" there is just one option that says "save photos and videos"

there is nothing regarding automatically saving to camera roll, which i am trying to stop.
extremely frustrated as all the instructions on this, that seem current, have different settings showing a "data and storage" under preferences.

can someone please help?
