Deleted WhatsApp messages by mistake? Here’s the trick that will let you recover your old chats

There are several reasons due to which you can lose WhatsApp chats. But now, no need to worry as you can recover old messages. Here’s how




Have you ever deleted WhatsApp messages by mistake and immediately regretted it thereafter? Or when you switch to a new phone, your chats get deleted automatically. There are several reasons due to which you can lose WhatsApp chats. This can lead to the loss of important information such as documents, locations, or any personal detail shared on the chats. But now, we have to come to your rescue.

There is good news that now you can recover your deleted chats, no need to worry about loss of data. Before you proceed, please remember that you can only recover chats if the backup option on WhatsApp was enabled in the first place. This implies that if you have never made a backup of your chats, you will be unable to restore any messages or chats that you have mistakenly deleted.

Before we carry on to guide you about recovering old chats, first learn how to turn on backup chat.

The first step is to open WhatsApp and go to Settings. In Settings, tap on Chats and then select Chat backup. Accordingly, you can set the frequency of your chat backup to never, daily, weekly, or monthly, or you can do a manual backup. If you have an Android smartphone, you will also need to choose the Google account where you want the backup to be stored. If you have an iPhone then you can select the Auto Backup frequency or use Back Up Now to manually initiate a backup to iCloud.

How to restore deleted WhatsApp chats via Android’s local backup?

  1. Go to your file manager, or download one if you don’t already have one. Look for the WhatsApp folder, which is often stored in your internal storage. After opening the folder, select Databases. Back-ups of your chat history are stored here date-wise. Check to see whether it has the chat history of the specified date and time.
  2. If you have your WhatsApp data saved on an SD card, copy the most recent entry in the Databases folder and paste it into the same-named folder on your internal storage.
  3. Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp, then sign in using your phone number. Tap the ‘Restore’ option to allow WhatsApp to restore your chat history.
  4. To restore chat backups from a previous date, choose the relevant one from the Databases folder and rename it from msgstore-YYYY-MM-DD.1.db.crypt12 to msgstore.db.crypt12. Make sure to simply delete the date and leave the rest intact. Change the crypt extension at your own risk. Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp before logging in and restoring your chat backups.

How to restore deleted WhatsApp chats via cloud backup?

  1. Uninstall WhatsApp from your Android device or iPhone.
  2. Then, reinstall WhatsApp and set it up with your phone number.
  3. After installing the app, you will be asked to restore messages from a cloud backup. On Android, this backup would come from Google Drive, while on iOS, it would come from iCloud. Select Restore.
  4. This will restore the messages that you have unintentionally deleted. It is important to note that if you received a message after your most recent cloud backup and deleted it, there is no way to restore it.


Samsung Galaxy M35: Design, colour revealed ahead of launch

Meanwhile, the Galaxy M35 is expected to boast a substantial 6000mAh battery capacity, surpassing its counterpart, the Galaxy A35, which contains 5000mAh. This enhancement in battery power indicates Samsung’s commitment to delivering extended usage durations for its consumers. 

Moreover, specific specifications are yet to be confirmed by Samsung, but reports suggest that the Galaxy M35 could feature a 6.6-inch display and run on an Exynos 1380 chipset paired with 6 GB of RAM, ensuring seamless performance for users across various tasks and applications. 

Despite bearing a resemblance to the Galaxy A35, the leaked image also highlights subtle differences between the two models, notably in the design of the volume and power buttons, as well as the location of the SIM tray. Such nuances indicate the potential distinction in user experience and functionality between the two devices.

As excitement grows for the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy M35, fans and tech enthusiasts are eagerly waiting for more information from the company about the phone’s specifications, price, and when it will be available.
