How to Recover Deleted Messages on Facebook Messenger with 4 Methods

Last Updated on September 28, 2023 by Jason Ben

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.

#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.

#2 Recover Deleted Messages on Facebook Messenger with Facebook service

Facebook (Or META) has developed a bunch of features and services to back up the data of Facebook. Some will help us recover the deleted messages from Facebook Messenger. Compared to third-party solutions, these Facebook services are 100% free. However, they're not bound to be helpful. Some are demanding.

Anyway, they are worth a try. . You may sign into your Facebook on a computer or phone to test the recovery methods below.

1 Read Deleted Messenger Messages with Facebook Messenger Notification

Once enabled, Facebook will send notifications of Messenger messages to your email or SMS. Though the probability of reading deleted Facebook messages in the emails or SMS is rather low.
