WhatsApp had become most loved instant messaging app since it’s launch.
But that’s not the matter.
WhatsApp recently rolled out the most awaited delete message feature with the latest updated.
This feature will allow WhatsApp users to delete the sent messages within first 7 minutes after sending the message.
But the question is, are these messages being deleted from the phone permanently?
No, they aren’t.WhatsApp is just using an interface in which people are not allowed to see those deleted messages.
A new report claims that the deleted messages can be still be accessed using the simple trick.
Spanish Android blog Android Jefe has claimed that deleted messages are present in the notification log of the device.
So, it’s just a matter of entering that record to see the messages that the other person deleted.
Let’s get started and see how can it be done.
Please make sure you are smartphone is running on Android 6 or higher versions before trying this trick.
Simple Steps To Read Deleted WhatsApp Messages
Basically, there are two methods to read the deleted messages from your phone.
Method 1: Installing a third-party app.
Our main aim is to access Notification log, and this can be done using a third party app Notification History.
Once you install the app just click open it and look for the notification that says WhatsApp.
Now the deleted message will be on the line that says android.txt, you can read it.
Method 2: Check deleted messages without third-party apps.
- If you are using Nova Launcher app consider yourself lucky because you are just one click away from seeing all the deleted messages.
- Else I recommend you to install Nova Launcher app, which has awesome features packed in it.
- After installing Nova launcher make a long press on an empty area on the home screen.
- Long press the home screen, then tap on Widgets > Activities > Settings > Notification log.
- This creates a Notification Log shortcut on your home screen.
Will this work all the time?
No, even the above-mentioned methods have few limitations while retrieving the deleted messages.I have tried listing out few of them below.
You can’t retrieve a message which is longer than 100 characters using this technique.
The notification log usually only saves notifications for a few hours.In addition, it is deleted when the phone is restarted.
The above-mentioned technique only lets you recover only text messages.No other forms of messages can be retrieved using those techniques.
Important thing most of ’em miss
Although this trick works accurately you should remember one thing that all the data about the deleted messages will be extracted from your smartphone.
If you just turn WhatsApp notifications then you will see none of the above mentioned working for you.
So, always make sure WhatsApp notifications is turned on.
