WhatsApp Users Can Recover Deleted Messages In Seconds

WhatsApp users can recover deleted messages in seconds.

A little-known hack allows both parties to access discarded comments – even when they’ve vanished from the screen.

The find emerges after users of the platform accidentally found a way of restoring redacted content, late last week.

The loophole means many of the app’s one billion users will be left red-faced by content that can’t be removed permanently.

To retrieve a deleted post, users simply need to delete WhatsApp and re-install it from the app store.

When this loads, users should log-in and restore all chats from back-up, producing any deleted messages in full.

This little-known function is possible because the app backs-up each message at 2am daily, so there’s a constant log of everything sent and received.

However, this is not the first time that issues have been uncovered with the ‘delete for everyone’ feature.

Shortly after its launch, in November 2017, Android Jefe, a Spanish Android blog, noticed a workaround that allowed Android users to view unsent messages.

Whenever a notification comes in to an Android devices, it is stored in the notification log – whether or not it is subsequently deleted by the sender.


1) Uninstall WhatsApp from your iPhone or Android

2) Re-install it from the app store

3) Log-in, then restore your conversations from back-up

While the bulk of the data in the log is technical information, the first 100 characters of the notification message are also recorded.

So while users may not be able to see the message within WhatsApp after it is deleted, they can still see it in the notification log – which can be accessed in two ways.

Firstly, users can create a home screen Settings widget, in which a ‘Notification Registration’ option will appear, according to Android Jefe.

Alternatively users can download a notification history app, which displays a list of all your recent notifications.
