How can you read old Snapchat messages?

Snapchat is designed to erase the messages it has read. However, it also provides an easy way to save the messages so you can read them later. To backup messages on Snapchat:

  1. Open the chat that you want to backup.

  2. Press and hold a message until it says “saved”.

  3. The messages are marked in gray, i.e. H. the messages were backed up. The backed up messages will remain in your Snapchat account and in your contact's account until you no longer want to back up the messages.

Even if you delete the conversation, the backed up messages are not deleted. To find old Snapchat messages, you could start a new chat with a contact and check whether the old saved messages are displayed.

How to Recover Deleted Snapchat Chat?

Now, if you are using Snapchat on an Android phone, there is a method by which you can find deleted Snapchat messages.

If a Snapchat message or a snapshot disappears, the message will not be deleted from the phone memory. It's still in memory, but its name has been changed so you won't be able to see it. The disappearing Snapchat messages will be renamed with the .nomedia extension, i.e. H. all apps should ignore it. So if you could find the .nomedia files and rename them, you could find the deleted Snapchat messages back.

  1. Install a new file manager on your phone. Open the file manager app and open the folder "".

  2. Find the files in the “for .nomedia” folder. If you find one, rename the files and delete the nomedia extension so that other apps can view the data and read it again.

Tip: is there a data recovery tool for Snapchat?

Unfortunately, there is now no data recovery tool that can recover deleted Snapchat messages. Some programs claim to be able to recover deleted Snapchat messages from iPhone or Android, but we have tested this data recovery software and find that none of them can do the trick. So, whenever you have important messages on Snapchat, always tap and save the messages. Otherwise, once the messages are hidden, there is little you can do to get the deleted messages. If you tend to keep chat history, you can use a screen recorder app to record your Snapchat history.
