WhatsApp is the most popular messaging application around the world with a total of 2 billion users. Despite the failures and scandals in which Facebook, the company that owns WhatsApp, has been involved.
Today, more than ever, WhatsApp is a very useful tool for everyone, since we constantly save and exchange information. However, there is no lack of a bad time that we go through accidentally deleting one of the messages and even entire conversations on WhatsApp.
Although WhatsApp does not allow to rescue the deleted information, if there are ways to read the deleted messages, through cloud storage services. This is possible if and only if a backup has been generated. Here we leave you some options to recover a deleted WhatsApp conversation.
As we mentioned earlier, it is necessary to have a backup in order to recover a deleted WhatsApp conversation. So, what you should do is go to the tools section, or settings, select chats. There you can activate the backup, and decide how regularly you want to do it.
In that section, you will select an email or cloud storage service available to protect your WhatsApp information. In addition to choosing the regularity with which the backup should be performed, either daily, weekly or monthly. You can also select if you want only messages to be backed up, or to include images and videos.
Now yes, to recover deleted WhatsApp conversations you must delete your account and then reactivate it. When restoring your account it will give you an option in which you can download your backup copy and thus recover all the messages saved until the last date the copy was generated.
In addition to this, there is another option to recover deleted WhatsApp conversations, however this is not available on all devices . You must have one that has Android 11 or 12. In this option you can go to the notification history section.
Instructions to read deleted WhatsApp messages from the notification history

- Finally, find the deleted messages
For iOS devices
In the case of iPhones or iOS devices, the backup function works exactly the same, unlike in this case. The main cloud storage tool is iCloud. However, the process to recover deleted WhatsApp conversations is the same.
