How to read deleted WhatsApp text message

Share it:

Weeks back, WhatsApp introduced an advanced feature of deleting sent messages using two different options.
  • Delete for me
  • Delete for everyone
When the first option is used, the selected message will be deleted from our chat window but remains in the recipient's window. While by using the second option, the message will be deleted from both the sender's and receiver's device. (deletion must be done within 7 minutes after message is sent)

ALSO READ: Delete Sent Message on WhatsApp after 7 minutes, week or even months!

There's an easy trick we can use to read the deleted messages.
Simply by installing the app named 'PastNotifications' given at the end of this article.

Basically, this app will be logging all the notifications that we receive on our android device.
Once the app is installed with proper permissions, it starts to retain possession of every notification that we receive.

Thus, if one sends you a 'HI' and later deleted the message, it will appear in your chat window as 'THIS MESSAGE WAS DELETED', but the Past Notification App keep hold of 'Hi', the message sent by the sender before deleting and 'THIS MESSAGE WAS DELETED', the current alert from the chat.

Hence, The delete message feature is no longer safe! Using this app or such similar notification history logging apps, one can easily find out what the deleted message was.


Have a look at the below video. It's in Malayalam language, but you'll certainly understand how to perform this task!

Hope you find this article helpful. Feel free to share this with your friends and family. Do let them know that it is possible to find out the deleted messages! Have a great day.

  6. I really have to thank Kieran for her review I read on veronica's blog. I've been in search of a genuine hacker for a while to help me hack my husband and a website but I was scammed repeatedly by fakes. After reading kiearan's review on black butcher, I thought it was just another lie but when I dug dip and read other reviews, the hacker turned out highly recommended by other people too. I contacted the hacker and decided to have faith in him. The hacker delivered and I was really impressed... he gave me full access to my husband's phone and hacked the website I wanted without any problem. Now I see why everyone is talking about this hacker and I'm going to join the train. For us looking for reliable hacker, you can imagine my joy after being scammed to finally see someone truthful to get it done. His mail is contact him and stop being scammed by these fakes out there. My sister also tried him to boost her credit score and clear her credit card debt and he delivered so I can guarantee he's real and knows what he's doing. Thank you black butcher.

    1. Hi there Sarah, your post saved my life. I'm really thankful to you and blackbutcher. The hacker is remarkable and very efficient. I thought this was just another fake post but the hacker did the job. A lot of people have been talking about him so I decided to give him a try. He helped me hack my wife's phone; facebook, whatsapp, gmail giving me full access to it and I got solid proof she was cheating. He also helped increase my credit score and cleared a few debts I had. This is a great discovery.
