HOW TO READ DELETED MESSAGES ON WHATSAPP… IT WORKS!!!

Published

In the latter part of 2017, WhatsApp, the popular messaging app, introduced a most requested feature; the ability to delete messages in groups and private chats.

Deleting messages for everyone allows you to delete specific messages you have sent to either a group or an individual chat. This is particularly useful if you sent a message to the wrong chat or if the message you sent contains a mistake.

Messages you successfully delete for everyone will be replaced with “This message was deleted” in your recipients’ chats (*). Similarly, if you see “This message was deleted” in a chat, it means that the sender deleted their message for everyone.

Before we jump into the main juice of this post, let’s take a sec to explore how the detele feature on WhatsApp works:

To delete messages for everyone

To delete messages for everyone:

  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete.
  2. Tap and hold the message. Optionally, tap more messages to delete multiple messages at once.
  3. Tap Delete  at the top of the screen > Delete for everyone.

Note:

  • In order for messages to be successfully deleted for everyone, both you and your recipient must be using the latest version of WhatsApp for Android, iPhone or Windows Phone.
  • (*) If you or your recipient are not using the latest version of WhatsApp for Android, iPhone or Windows Phone, this feature will not be supported.
  • Recipients may see your message before it’s deleted or if deletion was not successful.
  • You will not be notified if deleting for everyone was not successful.

To delete messages for yourself

Deleting messages for yourself allows you to delete your copy of messages you’ve sent or received from your phone. This has no effect on your recipients’ chats. Your recipients will still see the messages in their chat screen. To delete messages for yourself:

  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the chat containing the message you wish to delete.
  2. Tap and hold the message. Optionally, tap more messages to delete multiple messages at once.
  3. Tap Delete  at the top of the screen > Delete for me.

 

Read Deleted Messages

Now let’s dive into how to retrieve and read any deleted messages on WhatsApp chats. Currently there are quite a handful of solutions out there but i found this app to be the easiest for the average Joe to work with.

The app is called Notisave – save notifications

Just as the name implies, this app saves notifications of unread or deleted messages, so you never miss any message again.

With a 4.3 rating on the Google play store, the app offers additional features such as the ability to :

  • Save notifications
  • Keeps your status bar clean
  • Can search your notifications from one place
  • Reading messages on Notisave will keep them ‘unread’ on messengers.
  • Stay uninterrupted from notifications
  • Hide notifications from your status bar and read them later when you want

This is an app i bet you’d find very handy and useful in a lot of scenarios

Check it out, download and explore, plus it works for other messenger apps as well.

WhatsApp update enables users to restrict who adds them to a group

Published

Share

Facebook has added a new feature to WhatsApp – the ability to control who adds you to a group.

Back in April, WhatsApp rolled out the feature to some few users, mostly in India. A few changes have been made since the last update. Instead of the Group Privacy Settings alone, there is a new Blacklist option. According to WABetaInfo, the new feature is available on iOS beta version 2.19.110.20 and Android beta version 2.19.298.

The new Blacklist option replaces the “Nobody” option that has been available since the public beta rolled out in India.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is testing a new feature under its beta version for iOS users. This new update will bring features like light splash screen, dark splash screen, hiding the muted status update, and app badge improvements among others.

The splash screen update in WhatsApp is a new start-up screen, which depending on the theme is either light or dark. In simpler words, WhatsApp is testing a new launch screen, which appears when users open the app. The splash screen just has the WhatsApp logo against a white background in light theme and the same logo against a black or grey background in a dark theme. According to IANS report, the messaging app is testing a new Splash Screen feature for both IOS and Android users.

Ghana To Criminalize Inappropriate Internet Content

Published

Share

The Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has announced that Ghana would soon criminalise the sharing of inappropriate social media content.

She cited sexual images as an example of inappropriate content.

The Minister has therefore urged that all should comply with the domestic laws, when passed, to avoid being penalized.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful was addressing stakeholders on the second day of the National week celebration of the Cyber Security Awareness Month 2019, being held at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC), Teshie, Accra.

Dubbed: “Demonstrating Ghana’s Cyber Security Readiness,” the programme brought together security agencies, heads of departments, school children and others to discuss Child Online Protection (COP) and develop a framework to curb the risk posed to young people for using the internet.

The Minister said there would be sufficient provision in the law to protect children/adolescents from online abuse.

She, therefore, called on the public to be wary of such messages, delete as soon as they received them, and avoid passing them on.

The Ministry is working with the Attorney General, and Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, among others to come-up with the framework on child online development and welfare within the shortest possible time.

Mrs Owusu-Ekuful said most children had become active users of the internet for learning but were unfortunately faced with a lot of challenges, which affected their human rights and, therefore, the need to protect them.

She said most of the laws of Ghana were enacted before child online protection came up, as a result, sufficient laws should be put in place to protect children being abused on the internet.

Government, she said, had increased awareness among children across all the regions and by the end of October, 40 schools would have been reached.

She said cyber security policy would be reviewed to meet international standards and called on corporate bodies to support government since it was their collective interest to protect the children.

Hajia Samira Bawumia, the Wife of the Vice President, said a collaborative effort was essential to protect children from online predators.

Quoting UNICEF’s research done in 2016, she said four out of 10 children had seen sexual images and half of the 2000 children used in the survey expressed online abuse by adults.

She, therefore, called on government, educators, civil society organisations, international development partners to come up with policies and legislations to protect young internet users.

Hajia Samira commended the Ministry of Communications for initiating channels whereby victims who feared reporting to the police could report to seek redress.

“Parents have to be abreast of the use of the internet in order to guide their children on its usage as their children mostly knew more than them,” she advised.

Madam Anne-Clare Dufay, UNICEF-Ghana Representative, called on industry players to make their products child-friendly to prevent them from being taken advantage of.

Dr Albert Antwi-Boasiako, the National Cyber Security Advisor, said child protection issues needed a multi-sectorial approach where children themselves should not be left out of the solution.

Madam Afisah Zakaria, the Chief Director of Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, called for the monitoring of service providers of sex sites to protect children from accessing those sites.

She said the law would soon be enshrined with strict penalties so that sending, retaining, and sharing of such contents would be punishable by law.
