People delete Messages on Facebook Messenger for many reasons, for instance, to spare some storage on phone, to prevent other's reading some confidential messages, to remove some conversations that they think useless, to delete some text from someone you don't like.
As for me, I remember when someone bothered me so much that I just deleted our whole conversation on Facebook Messenger. Things have gotten more messy and distressing for some people thought I was not telling the truth about how a guy bugged me so much, which made me so upset. They told me to post screen-shots of his perverted messages to testify and so other people would be warned, too. I told them it would not be possible anymore for I have deleted the whole conversation already. Everyone heaved a deep sigh of hopelessness because no one knew how to recover deleted FB messages. We all thought that once it’s gone, it’s forever gone.
After a long-time investigation, I have found some approach to recover deleted messages on Facebook Messenger. Let's read these guides and get back your facebook messages.
Quick Navigation:#1 Ask for the Person in the conversation to Send a Copy of Messages to You
Deleting a message or conversation in the Facebook Messenger app is a permanent and irreversible action designed for protecting your privacy by facebook inc. So, if you have a good relationship with the person who was included in the conversation that you deleted then just appeal to him/her for a copy of the messages. Well, I know you would have done that if you can do that. I just want to give you a reminder in case you don't realize there is such an easy way to recover deleted Messenger text.
The probability of reading deleted facebook messages in the emails that Messenger sent for notification is very little. Only you have enabled facebook message notification and you are not using Messenger when the message was sent, in that specific case, you would get a copy of those messages in your Email inbox which is associated with your Messenger account. Now go to your email inbox and check if you have copies of deleted Messenger messages.
To confirm Facebook message notifications setting, open facebook.com with a web browser, Go to Settings > Notifications > Email and check if "All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from" is ticked.
Downloaded Facebook information only contains messages that are existed or archived, despite all this, you still have a chance to view deleted messenger messages since Facebook keeps deleted messages for an incognizable time. So, if you are lucky then you may be able to find those deleted Facebook Messenger messages in the downloaded Facebook information package.
Step 1 Login your Facebook account with a web browser, go to Settings > Your Facebook Information, select "Download Your Information".
Step 2 In the Your Information list, Deselect All, and check Messages (Messages you've exchanged with other people on Messenger) only, and click Create File button. You have to wait for a while when facebook is packing all your data into a downloadable file.
Step 3 Download the file and unzip it, then view messages in the file.
If you want to read Messenger Messages deleted by archiving, then you can view those messages easily by selecting archived chats in the Facebook Messenger page in a browser.
Just Go to Messages on the top nav bar, click the gear icon on the top of the Chats conversations list and select "Archived Chats". Here you will see all messages that you archived before.
