Does it ever happen with you that you are talking to someone on Whatsapp, you keep the phone aside for a while, and after sometime when you check your phone, you see 'This message was deleted'? Or an old buddy texts you and then deletes it, leaving you with the message 'This message was deleted'?
This arouses a lot of curiosity in our minds, and we want to know what message they sent, don't we? Well there are methods that can help us know the deleted messages. Read on to know them.
WhatsApp Deleted Message Feature
WhatsApp introduced a Delete Messages feature a few years back, which allows anyone to delete their sent messages. Although this is a highly convenient way for the sender to remove a wrong message, the receiver may become very interested as to what message was left behind because all they see on the screen is 'This message was deleted.'
The users get one hour to delete their messages from personal as well as group chats in the messaging app. Once the message is deleted, the chat window, which says “This message was deleted” shows in the chat. Although, some methods can still be helpful to check the deleted messages.
How To Read Deleted Whatsapp Messages?
Reading the message through the notification bar is one of the simplest and safest methods. This method, however, does not always work because multiple messages may appear at the same time and you may not be able to see the message, or many times the notification bar also shows 'this message was deleted'.
Another way is to use third-party apps to read the messages. It's an easy method. You can download apps such as Notisave or WhatsRemoved+ app, as these apps will make it easier for you to read the deleted messages. Both of these apps are available on Google Play Store.

How Do These Apps Work?
These apps keep our previous messages saved, just like a dictionary. However, to make these app work, you'll first have to accept the terms and conditions and give permission to these apps to access your notifications, gallery, messages, etc. The app will work only after that.
Before downloading the WhatsRemoved+ app from Google Play, make sure your phone is connected to a WiFi network. The app is 4.90MB in size.
Because the app is free, you'll see a number of advertisements on it. Simply enable the WhatsApp option and then click continue to read the deleted WhatsApp messages. There are other options too on the app like Facebook, Instagram and more where you can check messages of these apps.
Then WhatsRemoved+ will ask if you want to save the files or not. Select your preferred option. It will then redirect you to a page where you may see all of your deleted WhatsApp messages. Simply select WhatsApp next to the Detected option on top of the screen.
You will be able to read all deleted WhatsApp messages after enabling these options. The deleted messages will display in the WhatsRemoved+ app under the WhatsApp option.
However, you should be cautious when using this app because it often collects users' personal information stored on the device. If you're concerned about the safety of your personal or sensitive information, download at your own risk.
These methods will allow you to view deleted WhatsApp messages. However, you should keep in mind that reading deleted texts isn't always the best idea. So always think about it and decide if you really need to read the message.
