How To See Deleted Messages On Whatsapp

WhatsApp, a go-to messaging tool for millions around the globe, has an intriguing feature called ‘Delete for Everyone.’ However, there are times when we wish to read a message that was deleted by the sender. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process on how you can see deleted messages on WhatsApp.

Method 1: Using Notification History

The easiest way to view deleted messages is by using the ‘Notification History’ of your phone. This method works on both Android and iOS platforms. Notification history can store the WhatsApp notification message that arrives and keeps it even if the sender deletes it.

Steps for Android Users:

  1. Go to the ‘Settings’ menu of your phone.
  2. Find and tap on ‘Apps & Notifications’ or ‘Applications.’
  3. Look for ‘WhatsApp’ and tap on it.
  4. Tap on ‘Notifications.’
  5. Ensure that ‘Pop-up notifications’ or ‘Use high priority notifications’ is enabled.

Steps for iOS Users:

  1. Open ‘Settings’ on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on ‘Notifications.’
  3. Find ‘WhatsApp’ and enable ‘Allow Notifications.’

Now, whenever a message is deleted by the sender, you can see the content in the notification log.

Method 2: Using a Third-Party App

Android users have the option to use third-party apps like ‘WhatsRemoved+.’ This app keeps a tab on the notifications that are arriving on your phone, and it will alert you whenever a message is deleted by the sender.


  1. Download the ‘WhatsRemoved+’ app from the Google Play Store.
  2. After installing, open the app and set it up by accepting the terms and conditions.
  3. Select WhatsApp from the app list to track the notifications.
  4. Whenever someone deletes a message after sending it, you will receive a notification from ‘WhatsRemoved+’.

With these methods, you can now keep track of your WhatsApp messages even if they are deleted by the sender. However, respect for individual privacy is essential, so use these methods responsibly.

Note: These methods do not guarantee 100% recovery of deleted messages and they only work if the messages have generated a notification on your phone.
