The sender can remove/delete the message from both individual and groups and this Whatsapp feature is available on platforms.
It comes with the caveat that recipients are told you have pulled the trigger via a note that reads “This message was deleted”.
However, the message is stored on your phone and can be uncovered using WhatsApp’s backup feature.
How to recover deleted messages on WhatsApp
So if your girlfriend just deleted the message which you haven’t read yet you can read by following these simple steps:
- So uninstall WhatsApp and then reinstall it from Play Store/App Store.
- Login to your account and you’ll get an option to restore chat from backups.
- Simply select restore the chat and you’ll see the chats including the deleted messages if they were “never removed”.
Recover deleted messages on WhatsApp
So I know you are very lazy and if you don’t like the above method I have another method as well.
Apps like Notification History Log and Notification Log show you all of the notifications stored in your gadget’s notification register – including those for WhatsApp chats.
But the apps do have their limitations: You have to have interacted with the notification to read it.
That means swiping it from the notification bar or floating message.
Also, restarting your phone can reset your notification register, wiping any chance of spying on deleted messages.
