WhatsApp: Deleted Sent Messages Can Still Be Read by Recipients

WhatsApp: Deleted Sent Messages Can Still Be Read by Recipients


  • WhatsApp “Delete for Everyone” can be thwarted
  • The new method requires third-party app, or stock widgets
  • The deleted messages can be accessed via notification log

WhatsApp, one of the most widely used instant messaging apps, rolled out “Delete for Everyone” feature recently. But do deleted messages really disappear from the phone? A new report claims that WhatsApp messages that are deleted are actually still on the device and can be easily accessed.

Spanish Android blog Android Jefe has claimed that deleted messages are present in the notification log of the device. It adds that the recipient can easily access the deleted messages regardless whether it has been deleted from sender’s end. “What we found is that the messages are stored in the notification register of the Android system. So, it’s just a matter of entering that record to see the messages that the other person deleted,” the blog said.

The blog explains that anyone can access deleted WhatsApp messages sent to them via a third-party app named Notification History which can be downloaded via Google Play. After downloading the app, users will have to search the message in the Android notification log. Those users who are using third-party launchers like Nova Launcher it’s even easier. The notification log can be accessed without the need of an additional app. Long press the home screen, then tap on Widgets > Activities > Settings > Notification log. You can then access the system’s notification log. Similarly, on stock Android, a Settings widget can give access to the notification log as well.

Gadgets 360 tried both the Notification History third-party app and the Activities method described above. discovered that the trick worked on an Android device. There are few limitations, however, as the messages that have generated a notification on the device can be retrieved. The notification log only saves the messages on the device until it’s restarted. Once restarted, we noticed that the log was cleared.

The method, however, has a restriction that only the first 100 characters of the deleted message will be visible. The feature is available only for users running Android 7.0 and above. Users can only retrieve text which means any kind of media file cannot be recovered.

This is not the first time that reports of retrieving deleted messages have surfaced. Jonathan Zdziarski, iOS expert, last year has claimed that WhatsApp saved chat logs on the device despite it being archived or deleted.

One of the biggest use cases of the Delete for Everyone feature has been when a user send a message to the wrong chat, or if the message sent contains a mistake. It is the latest feature added to WhatsApp in a long list of features introduced this year, and is biggest change to the chat app since blue ticks aka send receipts.


Read Digital Dollar to Get Your Online Strategy in Gear

Digital DollarI recently reviewed Chris Brogan and Julien Smith’s book The Impact Equation and if you’ve read that book and signed up for making an impact with your online marketing, then the next book you need to read is The Digital Dollar: Sustainable Strategies for Online Successby Joe Wozny (@JoeWozny).

Where 80% of The Impact Equation put you in the space of understanding what you needed to do with your online communication and 20% was how to do it, Digital Dollar is 80% specific actionable strategies and tactics on how to manage your digital communications.

Who Is Joe Wozny?

Joe Wozny is a digital and online media strategist, author and blogger.  He is the CEO of Cencentric, a company that helps businesses manage and leverage their online media.  In other words, Wozny is in the thick of things when it comes to pulling your company’s plethora of online communication channels together and focusing them on what matters most.

Digital Dollar Is For Doers

Have you seen the movie Glengarry Glen Ross where a young and brash Alec Baldwin says:

“Put that coffee down….Coffee’s for closers?”

Digital Dollar is like that.  You can read all the feel good strategy you want.  You can read about social media and internet marketing, but Digital Dollar is about actually DOING what it takes to get the job done.  There is very little philosophizing and waxing nostalgic about feelings here.  This book is about doing, baby.  And if you’re not ready to DO digital, you’re not ready to read Digital Dollar.

I’m not usually this brash and up-front in my reviews.  After all, who am I to tell you how to read a book and what to get out of it?   But reading through Digital Dollar felt like having someone who knows, gets and understands social media channels walk up to me, grab me by the collar and tell me what it takes to get the job done.  And believe me – it’s not fluffy and feel good.  It’s practical, down-in-the-trenches-this-is-how-the-Internet-works kind of stuff.

All Your Digital Marketing Questions Answered

I get asked a lot of questions about digital marketing so it’s a good thing I’ve got myself a review copy of Digital Dollar because now I can answer basic questions like what kind of domain name to get as well as more complex questions such as  how to create a powerful content plan.

Digital Dollar has it all covered in about 200 pages with lots and lots of charts, tables and specific how-to action items that will keep you on track to achieve your digital marketing goals.

And practical tips?!  There are so many of them I can’t even begin to cover them here.  But I will just give you a few from the pages I’ve dog-eared on my copy:

  • Why create a full web site, when a micro-site will do?  A microsite is exactly what the name says – a small site with just a page or two.  It has a very descriptive domain name such as www.easyfreemarketing,com for example.
  • Create a content plan to keep yourself and your staff on track.  (LOVE this one!) Wozny also includes a picture of a sample content plan in an Excel sheet.  Your content plan should include marketing and promotional information and shared with key personnel.  This is one of my favorite tips because it allows you to integrate all your social media channels in one place.
  • Run a solid and ethical link strategy.  Prospect for links before executing a link strategy.  Always ask for and provide an appropriate links to any relevant party who has an interest in your organization.  Be clear on which pages and links are the most important to your business.

I could go on and on and believe me, each page of Digital Dollar is loaded with insider tips and strategies that you would pay thousands for to a consultant.

But more importantly, the value of this book lies in some great advice I got from Anita Campbell years ago; you don’t have to be the one to DO IT ALL, but you DO need to know what is going on with your site.  Every business owner needs to have a basic understanding of what certain internet strategies entail so that they can make good decisions.

This is exactly what Joe Wozny delivers in Digital Dollar.


Google’s self-using automobiles can read cyclists’ hand indicators

Elijah Nouvelage / Reuters
Google is running to enlarge the abilities of its self-using vehicle fleet, and in step with its contemporaryprogress file (PDF), it is making strides in sharing the road with cyclists. One of the methods the oldstersin Mountain View are doing that is by means of the usage of onboard sensors to gauge and interpret acyclist‘s rationale. “Our sensors can hit upon a bike owner‘s hand indicators as an indication of an aimto make a turn or shift over,” the company‘s June independent car record reads. “Cyclists regularly make hand indicators a long way earlier of a flip, and our software is designed to recall preceding indicatorsfrom a rider so it can better count on a rider’s flip down the road.”

Device studying is supporting there, making sure that unicycles and fatbikes are recognized for what they may be, and preserving the self reliant vehicles out of the 2-wheeled traffic‘s way. The document is going on to say that the vehicle software program is even getting advanced enough to don’t forgetcyclists riding in the dark and fending off injuries with them. With how commonplace bicycles are becoming on our roads it is fairly crucial that these conditions be discovered now — similar to self sufficient honking.
