WhatsApp gained a lot of popularity since users started needing apps that are secure, safe, and hacker-proof. WhatsApp, along with a couple of other apps, is offering end-to-end encrypted messages, thus creating a safe space for its users.
Besides the safety that is offered by having end-to-end encrypted messages, WhatsApp also offers its users the option to erase their messages.
Doesn’t matter if you’ve erased your messages by clicking on the wrong button, or you did so on purpose, but are now regretting it, the question remains: can you recover WhatsApp messages which were deleted?
The short answer is - yes, they can. There are a couple of alternatives offering you your chat history back. One of them is for you to check for your last backup, install and reinstall WhatsApp, and if none of these work, apps are available on the App Store which will help you select the conversations you want back. We will guide you step-by-step for all these options, so you can choose which one works best for you.
Open WhatsApp on your phone. Navigate to ‘Settings’, ‘Chats’, and then ‘Chat Backup’. Here you’ll see the last backup date and time. Now, backup your chat history once again, and follow these steps.
All your chats that were backed up will be restored.
Yes, you can. As we mentioned, there are apps allowing you to restore messages even without the backup file. Some of them are MiniTool Mobile Recovery for iOS (free) and iMyFone D-back iPhone data recovery (has a free trial).
The first one is compatible with nearly all types of iPhones and is available for all PCs and Macs.
