WhatsApp bug allows you to recover deleted messages

For more than one year now, users of a messenger such as WhatsApp have the ability to easily and simply delete messages. You can do this within one hour from the moment of its sending. In this regard, the owner of the mobile device will no longer be able to read it, and at the same time his interlocutor, because instead of the message the message "Message is deleted" will be displayed. A similar opportunity in this service caused an ambiguous reaction from his audience, because someone called it useful, but someone on the contrary considered it unnecessary. To the delight of the latter, a detected bug in this service allows you to actually recover deleted messages.

At the same time, as the team of service developers has already commented on such a “find”, this is not a bug, but a feature, so no one is going to fix it. According to the American publication TheHackerNews, which specializes in identifying various malfunctions in the work of popular services, WhatsApp messenger with an audience of more than 1.5 billion people using it on an ongoing basis contains a bug due to which it is possible to recover deleted messages. At the same time, you can restore those that were sent by someone, and then deleted by the same person for any reason. The sender will no longer be able to completely remove the content because of this.

Experts checked the Android version of the application, and then the version for iOS (iPhone). As a result, in the latter they came to an unexpected conclusion. So, when the sender of a photo, video, or something similar deletes this content, it becomes unavailable within the messenger, but from the phone’s photo gallery you can easily view it, because all files of this type are automatically saved there, but not deleted then. The same thing happens on Android, but for this, in the service settings you need to disable the auto-delete function from the library of files deleted from WhatsApp from the library, because otherwise right after the user deletes them from the dialogue, they will also be deleted from the smartphone.

According to the development team of the most popular communication service in the world, the “Delete for all” option for one hour is not intended to delete already sent materials, but to delete a text message. Simply put, the creators of WhatsApp do not consider this a bug, so in this way, users can recover deleted messages that contain photos, music tracks, videos and stuff like that. In the case of the iOS version of the application, all this will be done automatically, but on the Android version of the program you will have to disable the option, which is responsible for automatically deleting files from the phone’s library.

Earlier it became known that the legendary ICQ messenger was resurrected and “killed” WhatsApp.
