Conversion of WhatsApp CRYPT8 archives to older CRYPT7 format

There is no direct method to convert old WhatsApp CRYPT8 archives to CRYPT7 format. However, a possible workaround is to use the WhatsApp Tri-Crypt program.

WhatsApp Tri-Crypt

The WhatsApp Tri-Crypt utility can run as a background process and convert all newer CRYPT8, CRYPT7 and CRYPT5 archives to the original legacy CRYPT format.

Extracting the crypt files

Once the files have been converted to the original CRYPT format, they can be easily extracted using available tools like WhatsApp Xtract.

This process is more or less obsolete now as WhatsApp currently uses CRYPT14 or CRYPT15 files.

Simply put, it is impossible to convert CRYPT8 to CRYPT7 directly.
Thus, there is no so-called crypt8 to crypt7 converter or a free online .crypt8 to .crypt7 converter.
