Recover deleted WhatsApp messages


WhatsApp is the leading mobile chatting application on all operating systems. There is a cool feature in WhatsApp as it backs up your messages every night at 4 AM so you can restore it after accidental deletion. You can use this feature in the case you uninstalled the whole application from your phone and you changed your mind. You will get a notification asking you to restore your deleted messages immediately after reinstalling WhatsApp.

Restore deleted chats on WhatsApp

You can manage your chat backups by heading to Settings>> Chat Settings >> Back up chats. Backups are stored in the path /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases and you must make sure that the database backup file is named like msgstore.db.crypt7 or msgstore.db.crypt8 to ensure a successful backup process.
