WhatsApp Whats App deleted messages Whats App messages Whats App app Delete for Everyone feature

Last month, WhatsApp introduced a "delete for everyone" feature, allowing users to unsend an embarrassing message within seven minutes of sending it. The report claims that the recipient can easily access the deleted message even if it has been deleted from the sender's end.

Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has recently rolled out the most sought-after feature "Delete for Everyone". Doing so will produce a menu with "Delete" options. "The deleted message would then be replaced by a notification that says 'This message was deleted".

Unfortunately, that appears not to be the case. It is said that on restarting the device, the notification log will be completely refreshed.

Spanish Android blog Android Jefe has claimed that deleted messages are present in the notification log of the device. Tap on that icon and once in the Notification Logs, find WhatsApp and tap on it and you will be able to see the messages you received, deleted or not.

Santiago S, the author of the blog, wrote: 'We have discovered a way to recover or see messages deleted by the other person in a WhatsApp chat. If there was not notification then they will not be able to read the messages. So, going by the reports, iOS WhatsApp users will not be able to read the WhatsApp messages once deleted.

Have you ever sent a WhatsApp message to the wrong chat? Users need to try this out for themselves by first updating their WhatsApp app on their Android phone to the latest version.

Apart from the fact that only text message can be viewed, the blog post clarifies that just the first 100 characters of the message will be visible to users. That means once you have seen the message and it is later deleted it will be stored in the notification logs.

This doesn't look like it works for devices running Android versions older than Android 7.0 Nougat.

So while users may not be able to see the message within WhatsApp after it is deleted, they can still see it in the notification log - which can be accessed in two ways. The application - Notification History is available on Google Play store and can be downloaded from there. Here, there is no need to download a third-party app to access deleted messages. For people who are running a stock version of stock Android, a Settings widget will give them access to notification log.

You can do this by long-pressing the Settings icon, tapping the Widgets symbol that appears at the top of the pop-up window, and dragging the Settings widget to your home screen. However, you're safe if you accidentally sent a photo or video to someone you shouldn't have, and deleted it afterwards.
