How to get back your deleted message in Facebook

In Facebook, now you can also recover your deleted messages or a group of messages from your inbox which can be your recieved or sent messages or simply updates from the different pages that you have joined. It’s not a trick or anything like it, rather it’s just a feature added by Facebook without any notification or update in their official blog.

To recover a deleted message, find the link of undo in a yellow box below the button ofย  “+ Compose”. Check out the screen Shot below.


This link will appear in your inbox whenever you delete one or more of messages that might be received or sent messages. You can also undo the deleted updates from the pages. This feature helps to clean inbox faster as you don’t have to confirm “are you sure want to delete this message” every time, but you still don’t have an option of recovering an old deleted message that you have deleted a long while ago. However to read an old message that is no more in your inbox, you can check your e-mails as Facebook always send you an e-mail notification in your mailbox whenever you recieves a new message.

I would like all my sent and received messages back because I have been hacked and they have chatted to very important people that I would like to see.

Sauravjit August 4, 2010

Well in that case check your e-mail which’s related to your facebook account as we get an e-mail every time when we send or receive a message. ๐Ÿ™‚

Find “New Message” button on your page….That must be on top right hand side of your page.

Sorry for your loss. You can check those messages in your fb inbox. Or you can check them in your E-Mail inbox attached to your fb.

I find it difficult to chat with my friends on fb mobile.I used samsung s5350 252 wave mobile

Redgie May 11, 2012

If you have a nokia e73 or e75 i think, i dont remember but i know its e7 something? The old black thick one its plastic not metal like the newer version. Anyway it has to be that phone, if you have that phone lying around just download the app for fb. When you log in it brings up old messages that can date back to 2 years ago maybe even 3 but you gotta delete some to go further back in time.

Tom Shmedes May 25, 2012

What phone is this?

And does it actually work?

Mr Jay November 9, 2012

Actually its easy to get all your historical infor from fb.
Using a PC or laptop:

Go to account settings > General.
Under your profile infor, there is a link which says
“Download a copy of your fb data”
As simple as that every thing will be there.
See ya!

Dayane January 24, 2013

I suggest we send messages to call Mark Zuckerberg to create something that he can recover messages and postings excluded. Furthermore, we create campaigns on social networks!

Divyashree April 20, 2013

The simplest way is to ask the person you have sent an inbox message to, on Facebook to copy paste it to you.. This is possible, provided the other person hasn’t deleted the messages! Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi there ! By mistake I delete massage ( Ruhul Ameen fcma ) please I would like to get back all chate massage . Thanks .

Suzanna Gentle November 22, 2015

you are a moron! You CANNOT get back deleted messages even if god himself wanted it. You can only retrieve archived messages. Also none of the above makes any sense at all gramatically. Idiot! There is no way to get back deleted messages. How come every way given to get them back is the same and always by an Indian blogger or supposed tech savvy person? You can’t get them.
