Recovering/Retrieving Deleted Messages via Checking your email Inbox

This method’s usefulness is solely predicated on whether you received notifications from Facebook with a copy of the message(s) on your email. Note that you can check your notification settings to see if reception is already enabled. Here is how to check/enable the reception of a copy of messages via email, check and find those messages after deletion.

Login to your Facebook account

Click the downward facing arrow on the top right corner. This will bring out a drop down menu with several options.

Select Settings

Click Notifications in the column on the left hand side

Click the Edit option located to the far right of your Email notification settings On doing this, you’ll see three options in the email notifications window beneath a heading that reads “WHAT YOU’LL RECEIVE”. Unless you’ve chosen to receive “All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from”, you won’t receive message notifications to your email inbox.

There’s another heading that reads “NOTIFICATIONS YOU”VE TURNED OFF”. Beneath that heading, if you see the word “Messages” with a “Turn On” button to the right of it, you are not receiving email notifications of your Facebook messages. If you don’t see that, you should be receiving message notifications.

You can tweak your notification settings to the modes mentioned above to ensure you do not lose messages you delete henceforth.

However, if the above conditions are already met, you can go ahead and check your email to retrieve the deleted messages. To do so, continue with the steps below
