WhatsApp rolled out a much-needed feature allowing the users to delete the message sent within the duration of 7 minutes. This lifesaver option can be very handy given that ‘Delete for Everyone’ feature lets people recall messages sent on individual chats as well as WhatsApp groups.
Today in this post I have come up with a very simple method to see a message if it is deleted by the sender. WhatsApp messages are highly encrypted so there is no straightforward method to read a deleted message. But this little trick can help you see any message deleted for everyone.
Requirements & Prerequisites
- Android Version 5.0+
- WhatsApp Notifications Enabled (You should get WhatsApp message notification)
- Latest Updated WhatsApp
How to Read a ‘Delete for Everyone’ Message for Android?
There is no any direct method to read the deleted message until you made any backup.
Download the PastNotification App from Google Play Store.
Open the App and enable ‘Notification Access’ to the App.
Now each time you receive Notification Message, a log information is saved in the App along with the sender name, time and content of the message.
Even if the sender deletes the message from the WhatsApp, you can access the content using the Past Notification App which takes the backup of the notification messages.
Just check the time and name/number of the deleted message. Open the Past Notification App and you can read the content of the message.
⇒ By using the App you can store the chat even if it is called back by the sender. You can delete the notification history from the PastNotification App according to device space comfort.
⇒ You can also use other apps to perform the same actions but log data is the easiest way.
⇒ If you wish you can hide the PastNotification icon the status bar by long pressing the Status icon and blocking the notifications.
Advantages of Notification Log Apps:
- Messages deleted by the sender is saved as a log.
- You can locate the message easily by using time and name.
- Read the message on the App itself.
- Consumes less device space.
Limitations in Getting Back Message:
- This App can only backup the notification messages.
- It can indicate that the message icon if it media file.
- App can show up to 500-700 words of the message.
Note & Conclusion: The App can only backup the messages which are notified after its installation, no prior messages can be read. I hope the post was helpful. Do comment below for any assistance if needed.
