Recover deleted messages on Messenger
As you may already know, Messenger is the Facebook chat from the messaging app and even from our Facebook profile we can have conversations with our friends and share any experience with them. There can be many reasons that lead us to delete a message and many others that move us to want to recover them, but what should we do if we need information from a chat that we have deleted. Next, we will tell you how to recover them.
There are several methods to recover messages, the first option is to search for deleted messages on Facebook . We can recover them by entering our profile through the browser or from the Messenger app on our mobile phone, we tell you how:
To do them from the browser, in a new window go to the Facebook page and log in.
Once inside, click on the icon of the messaging application in the upper right corner of the window.
Next, select the option “ See all Messenger”
To access you must click on the icon of the three points next to chats to display more options.
Among the available ones select “Archived Chats”
Scroll through the saved messages until you find the one you were looking for.
In the same way, we can do it from our mobile with the app , to do this, open the application and use the search bar to type the name of the person with whom you exchanged the message. If this was archived at the time, it will appear as a search result, we just have to touch on it to see it. To return the messages back to the inbox, in both cases, it will suffice to send a new message. If the search is done, the message in question does not appear, there are other ways to recover it.
If you have an Android device you can still access the message, since these may still be stored in the phone’s cache, to access it we have to use a file manager, if we do not have this application, in the application store from Google we can find several. Once we have in file explorer, follow these steps:
You will be able to access the folder through this path Main storage>Andorid>data>con.facebook.ocra>cache>fb-temp , or also if the app has a search tool we can use it to reach the folder. Within this location recent history messages are stored, hopefully the message will be found here. In the case of iPhone users, access to the backup of the device is more complicated and we only have the option with the help of data recovery tools. To avoid this situation, it is best to create a backup copy of the messages by activating email notifications.
