Hi,
is it possible to recover a deleted message from a chat on whatsapp?
The message deleted was an old message in a chat that was already read by both participants of the chat. It has been deleted only on one phone ("delete only for me" option). Is it possible somehow to recover it on the phone where it was deleted? Also, is it possible to know if that message ever existed on that phone and if at some has been deleted?
FYI: no chat backups available for the account.
Thanks

Welcome to iPhone Forums, @poodlenoodle!

If the app hasn’t been backed up before the message has been removed, it’s not possible to recover it. Sorry!

Thanks for the greetings and for the support.

Yes, no back ups exist.

Do you know if it will be possible to know if a message was deleted? Not recovering the message, but somehow knowing that on that phone that old message (already read on both devices) has been deleted from the chat.

Thanks

Messages in WhatsApp can be deleted for everyone until about an hour after sending them. Afterwards, you can delete them for yourself, and the other participant won’t notice that you’ve removed it on your device.

Thank you! and by chance, do you know if there is a way to recover it on my device with no back up available?

Hi did you backup the phone before the messages became missing because more than likely you can recover from a restore from iCloud backup or computer backup if you have backed up the phone.

The OP has stated that there is no backup that could possibly contain the missing messages; therefore no form of data recovery can recover these missing messages.
