Facebook-owned WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world. Millions of people are using this application. And many people often make mistakes on WhatsApp like accidentally deleting the chats, whenever we shift to a new smartphone. We lose all old WhatsApp texts, media files, and photos which can be very frustrating at times. If you want to recover any deleted messages on WhatsApp, this article will help you.
According to a report from DNA India, WhatsApp has no official feature that lets you read messages that have been deleted but there is a third-party app called WhatsRemoved+. This app will make it possible for you to read all deleted WhatsApp messages.
Please note that WhatsApp backs up chats every day at 2 am in the morning by default unless you have changed the setting manually. If you are not moving to a new phone but have mistakenly deleted some WhatsApp chats and want to restore it back, you can simply uninstall the WhatsApp app and reinstall it and follow this process.Read more ↓
First, to turn on chat backup, open WhatsApp, go to Settings > go to Chats > tap on Chat backup. You can set up the frequency of your chat backup between never, daily, weekly or monthly, or you can even do a manual backup as well. Additionally, you’ll have to select the Google account where you’d want the backup to be stored if you use an Android smartphone.
For iPhone users, go to Settings within WhatsApp > Chats > Chat Backup, where you can select the Auto Backup frequency or use Back Up Now to manually initiate a backup to iCloud.
Ensure that the chat backup option of your WhatsApp account is set to Daily. This will make it easy to recover it whenever required, as there will be a backup of your chats on a regular basis.
If you are switching to a new smartphone, then you will first need to download the WhatsApp app from the Google Play Store or Apple App store. Login to your WhatsApp account by entering the phone number and verify your number by receiving OTP. After setting up the app you will get an option to ‘Restore’ all your WhatsApp chats. Click on the Restore option and all your old/deleted WhatsApp messages will be restored on your new smartphone.
