WhatsApp recently launched a new ‘Delete For Everyone’ feature, which allowed users to delete the sent messages within seven minutes. A new report claims that WhatsApp messages that are deleted are actually still on the device and can be easily accessed working on Android 7.0 Nougat & above.
How To Read Deleted WhatsApp Messages?
- The blog explains that anyone can access deleted WhatsApp messages sent to them via a third-party app named Notification History which can be downloaded via Google Play
- After downloading the app, users will have to search the message in the Android notification log. Those users who are using third-party launchers like Nova Launcher it’s even easier.
- The notification log can be accessed without the need of an additional app. Long press the home screen, then tap on Widgets > Activities > Settings > Notification log. You can then access the system’s notification log.
- On stock Android, a Settings widget can give access to the notification log as well.
