These days, the use of social networks is very common among all people, and if you look around a little, you can see that people spend many hours day and night using these networks. They use it to do their daily tasks and communicate with other people.
One of these social networks that have the feature of end-to-end encryption on all available messages, which can provide good security for existing information, is WhatsApp, which to date has been able to attract many enthusiasts to itself.
Use this social network to communicate with other people or even as a network to advertise your site and develop it. You should pay attention to the fact that the messages you send in WhatsApp and delete after a while in minutes or seconds, are deleted immediately from the page you are viewing, but they remain on your mobile phone, and you can access them.
This is the main topic that we intend to address in this article. We hope that the content provided to you is interesting and useful for you.
Are WhatsApp messages deleted forever?
The short answer to this question can be given by saying no. They will only be removed from the page but remain on your mobile phone.
Every so often, the person who deleted the message may, for some reason, want to be able to retrieve the same message. For example, he/she may have done so by mistake and maybe want to get the message back as soon as possible.
As we have mentioned, these messages remain on the mobile phone, and you can retrieve them so that there are no worries about this issue.
How to recover deleted messages?
If you get stuck and accidentally delete a message, you can return the message. For doing so, you must do the following.
- In the first step, to recover deleted items, if you use any of the Android or iPhone operating systems (in French: Systèmes d'exploitation Android ou iPhone ), you must delete your WhatsApp.
- Reinstall WhatsApp and set it up with your phone number.
- After installing the program, a message will be sent to you that contains the content that you want to recover cloud backup messages. This will be a backup of Google Drive on Android and iCloud on iOS, you should click on Recover, but it should be noted that If you delete this message, there is no way to recover your information, and to get the information again, you need to get help from experts.
Can this App provide good security for its users?
Surely you have worked with this social network to date, and you have heard that the developers of this network attach great importance to the issue of security and encrypt all messages transmitted from sender to receiver so that profiteers cannot gain access to this information.
However, it should be noted that the information is stored on the device after being sent to the person, and it is also stored on the cloud as a backup that cloud backup is not encrypted. People can access the information if they want to through this way.
After reading the paragraph above, you may be worried, but we need to remind you that there is nothing to worry about when you want to transmit ordinary information through this network. On the other hand, you should feel a little risky when you want to transmit important data.
Ways to increase security:
There are several ways you can use to provide more security for the information in your WhatsApp, which are mentioned in the following part.
- Do not use public computers to connect to your App:
As you know, you can view your WhatsApp on a computer, for which you only need to log in to your account by using the QR code of the program, and eventually, you can easily transfer data via WhatsApp on your desktop.
But this can endanger the security of your information if you do not follow the security tips carefully, imagine that you are going to use a public computer to use WhatsApp. Finally, you forget to log out of the program after you are done. Eventually, people who can access the system can see all your messages as well as your contact, and they may even give them a message that this can be a concern.
If such a problem occurs, you should try to fix the WhatsApp installed on your mobile device as soon as possible, and all you have to do is to use the log out from all computers option.
- Use two-factor authentication:
As you know, using two-factor authentication in all applications can provide very good security, and its use is highly recommended. The same is true in this application, and when you get help from this option, you can ensure the high security of your WhatsApp and communicate in it as safely as possible.
The activation method is as follows.
- Disable cloud backup:
As we have explained to you about recovering deleted data and messages, all data is stored in cloud backup, which can be good in some cases. On the other hand, it can be bad for users as well.
You can disable this because the information stored in this section is not encrypted and can eventually be accessed if one wishes.
Finally, if security is very important to you, the best solution is to disable it to reduce the possibility of your important and sensitive information being leaked out. To disable backup on Android devices, follow the following part.
Follow your path if your device is iOS.
- Only contacts can send you messages:
As you know, in WhatsApp, anyone with a mobile number can send a message to the person in question, which in some cases can compromise security, for example, imagine a person who has your mobile number intends to send you a link that if you click on it, your device will be infected and eventually hacked, so it is necessary to go to settings and activate the mode in which only your contacts can communicate with you and be able to view your profile.
Another thing you may never think about its importance is that a hacker should not know the time when you are online because they can take advantage of the time when you are offline, so it's better to go to the settings and disable showing the time when you are working with WhatsApp so that no one can realize when you are online which can minimize the possible risks because the hackers shouldn't have any information about your account because they may abuse this data whenever they want in different fields.
In general, WhatsApp application is being widely used among users, and one of the reasons for this popularity is the possibility of deleting messages, in this article, we tried to remind you that the message you are trying to delete forever won't be erased and can be retrieved, as a result, when you erase your important information by mistake you can have it again which is of a great importance for people who are not careful enough so that it can be useful to you, and you can use the existing content that have been discussed in this article and use it in order to retrieve all your information, in addition to this issue, considering that many people use WhatsApp these days for online orders or other tasks, we tried to do research in this field also deal with security issues and points related to this application, we hope that this article can help you increase the security of your information and profiteers cannot easily gain access to your data which is stored in this application and use them to destroy your credibility.Click here to create a mobile app
