WhatsApp Messages deleted or Missing: How to Recover them

 

WhatsApp
has become the go-to social media platform for connecting with family and
friends over the past few years. In contrast to other social media platforms,
Facebook allows users to send and receive unlimited messages without
autodelete.

However,
WhatsApp lets you delete messages you don’t want to keep. In this case, there’s
a chance that you’ll accidentally delete something. If you switch to a new
device or reset your device, you may lose your messages inadvertently.

What
if those messages are lost forever? No, it is not. The ability to recover
deleted WhatsApp messages
 still exists.

Deleted WhatsApp
Messages – How to Recover Them

You
may have lost some of your WhatsApp messages if you frequently use WhatsApp. It
could be a funny text from a friend, contact information that a colleague
shared with you, or even an exchange you could present as evidence.

There
are several ways to recover deleted messages even though WhatsApp doesn’t
provide a direct tool to do so. However, recovery methods vary depending on
what type of device you have. Similarly, what works for Android phones may not
work for iPhones.

Our
first step is to learn how to retrieve old WhatsApp messages from an Android
device.

Android application for recovering deleted WhatsApp messages

The
Google Play Store boasts an incredible selection of apps and Android devices
are popular for their affordability, large display, and open-source software.
There’s no wonder WhatsApp is fully compatible with most Android devices today.
However, you can lose WhatsApp data just like any other device. Changing
devices or accidentally hitting the delete button can lead to data loss.

Fortunately,
WhatsApp has a cloud-based backup option that you can use if you lose messages.
However, how does it work?

You
can enable backup in the WhatsApp app’s settings section so that it
automatically keeps a copy of every message you send. A backup process begins
by checking the server for duplicate messages. It creates a copy if one does
not exist. Photos and videos are automatically saved by the app as well.

If
you delete a message by mistake, you should look at your backup first.

Recovering Deleted WhatsApp Messages from an iPhone

WhatsApp
for iPhones backs up regularly to the cloud, similar to WhatsApp for Android.
As long as you enable backup, WhatsApp will store copies of all your messages
in iCloud Drive. You can even find the most recent backup date in the account
settings section.

Recovering
deleted messages from iCloud is straightforward:

1.    
Uninstall “Whatsapp” on your device by
selecting “Delete
App.”

2.    
Check out the “App Store” to download a new version
of “WhatsApp.”

3.    
You can install the app after downloading it successfully on
your device.

Ensure
that you have enough space in your local storage before beginning the recovery
process. The available local storage should be twice as huge as the backup
size. In the case of a 1GB backup, at least 2GB of free storage space is needed
on your device.
