Nevertheless, not many know that there are certain ways to recover these messages that were deleted, whether we were the ones who sent them, or we received the callsign: ‘this message was removed’. Of course, before knowing how to recover them, it must be taken into account that, if the other person decided to delete them, maybe you shouldn’t read them to avoid upset.


Although it is true that some deleted messages can only be recovered in specific circumstances and not always completely, one of the most effective ways is through backup. To do this, the first thing is that the daily copy is enabled and proceed to uninstall and reinstall the application. Then, it will give us the option to recover the messages from the last backup and all those sent and received before being deleted will appear on our screen again.

It should be noted that all those messages sent and received after the last backup will not be reflected. In addition, the multimedia content of the messages is not always going to be saved, and in most cases it will be lost, if they were not left in the mobile gallery. The best thing is that it is an option available for both Android and iPhone.
