The Android Operating system comes with a slew of features that makes the process of communication easy and hassle-free. Along with the support for the most popular messaging apps on the market, the Android OS also comes with a robust SMS messenger that allows you to receive and send messages via the old fashioned and sometimes very enjoyable SMS methods. Besides, with online transactions now relying on one time passwords sent via SMS, the basic messengers are a must.
Now, if you have been using the SMS app on Android, there may be times where you end up deleting messages or message thread and later realize that you wanted them back. Now, restoring deleted messages from your device is not exactly possible as there is no visible recycle bin app. But, there is a nice little workaround that can allow you to recover deleted messages.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to recover deleted messages on Android.
Step 1. Download and Install the Android Data Recovery tool on your PC.
Step 2. Enable the USB Debugging feature on your Android Smartphone.
Step 3. Connect your Android Device to your PC.
Step 4. Using the Android Data Recovery Tool, download and install the FonePaw app on your Android smartphone.
Step 5. Next, permit the app to read your Messages.
Step 6. Click on the ‘Scan Authorized Files‘ option on the tool on your PC.
Step 7. Select the messages you want to recover and click on the ‘Recover‘ button.
Your Deleted messages will now be recovered on your device. Do keep in mind that there is a limit to how far back the tool can actually go, so don’t expect to recover messages that have been deleted past a couple of months.
