WhatsApp Recovery - How to Retrieve Deleted WhatsApp Messages

WhatsApp has become an integral part of our lives. We use it now for staying connected with work, home, friends, and more. With the bulk of our daily communication happening through WhatsApp, it is quite obvious that we would want to save some of these messages forever.

However, it is not uncommon to find that you have deleted those very important WhatsApp messages or conversations accidentally. It happens a lot certainly with many of us, and it is frustrating. Although, fortunately, the makers of WhatsApp have done their bit to help us out in such situations.

WhatsApp comes with inbuilt options to auto back up WhatApp messages and hence you can always recover the lost or deleted ones. Even though they are not the perfect means of recovering your lost messages, they do the job to a certain extent at least. Also, except auto backup, there are a lot of other ways to backup WhatsApp messages, to avaid any unexpected data loss.

Today, we will take a look at how one can recover deleted WhatsApp messages from the backup that it creates automatically.

Part 1. Recover WhatsApp messages from its auto backup

Now, WhatsApp does automatically backup your chat history on any Android device every day. You can also choose Google Drive (for Android) and iCloud (for iPhone) as the means of storing backups of your WhatsApp chat history.

In case, you have ended up deleting some messages on WhatsApp and now want to recover or restore them, simply uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp on your device. Upon doing that, WhatsApp will automatically ask you to restore using the last backup created.

Pros:

Cons:

  • This method would only recover WhatsApp messages sent before the last backup was created, any message sent after that will not be restored.
  • Doesn't give you a way to restore selective messages.
