Opening a new Whatsapp message notification and then seeing “This message was deleted” can be both strange and annoying. You can’t ask the sender to repeat what they had deleted – if they had wanted you to see it, they wouldn’t have deleted the message in the first place.
You can ask them, but whatever they are going to say will obviously be a lie too. Deleting a Whatsapp message is a way of taking back your words because it didn’t feel right, or came out wrong, or for any other reason. In most cases, the sender of the deleted Whatsapp message wants only one thing – for the deleted message to stay deleted.
But what if there is a way to read a deleted Whatsapp message without any need to contact the sender? In fact, the sender would be thinking their deleted message has eluded you while unbeknownst to them, you have the exact content of their deleted message in your palm.
Reading deleted Whatsapp messages on Android devices is a little easier. There are over a dozen apps that you can use to open already deleted Whatsapp messages on Android devices. But this is not the case with iPhones.
