Nothing is private on the day of the Internet – this also applies to your personal, even deleted WhatsApp messages.
Currently, the application allows users to delete certain messages sent to a group or an individual in the “Delete for All” option, replacing the message with “This message has been deleted.In chat. However, there are some cautions even with this tool. For starters, both you and the recipient must use the latest version of WhatsApp. Even in this case, recipients can see your message before it is deleted or if the deletion was not successful – and this is only if you delete it within an hour after sending.
Here's the problem: deleted messages are actually stored on your phone and can be recovered using the application recovery feature. Although chat histories are not stored on WhatsApp servers, the platform reports that messages are reserved and stored in different places that are not protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption.
For iPhone users, chat histories are stored in iCloud using the automatic backup option or can be made manually at any time by going to Whatsapp > settings> Chats > Chat Backup > Backup now. Restore chat history from iCloud just got easier. After making sure that the backup exists, simply delete and reinstall WhatsApp from the app store, check your phone number and follow the on-screen instructions to restore the chat history. Perhaps this is even more frustrating, the application has the ability to send yourself a copy of the entire chat history by email.
Android users can back up chats and media on Google Drive, which makes it easy to transfer any data saved to a new device, and does not even take into account the Google Drive storage quota. Similarly, information can be automatically or manually copied by opening the application and clicking Menu > settings > Chats > Chat Backup and clicking Backup to Google Drive and choosing a frequency other than Never. Recovering from Google Drive is just as easy. Again, just uninstall and reinstall whatsapp, confirm your phone number and click Restore,
Just a few days ago, Facebook announced plans to merge WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. Founder Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg) said that these three applications will remain autonomous and separate, but users will be able to exchange messages between these three applications without having to switch platforms, which requires encryption of each connection from beginning to end. Currently, WhatsApp is the only application of the three that has this option by default.
