There is a way to recover deleted WhatsApp messages

WhatsApp is used by millions of us to share everything from family news to secret gossip. And one of the most popular features of the app is that it lets you delete your slip-ups.

Many an embarrassing moment has been saved by the feature - but now it has been revealed that there is a way to recover those deleted messages.

So if you thought your faux pas had been wiped permanently, you're not in luck. There is a surprisingly easy way to get hold of them on both Apple and Android phones. 

The deleted message is stored on your phone, and can be uncovered using WhatsApp's backup feature.

The tool backs up all of your messages, with users choosing when their messages are backed up, choosing from daily, weekly and monthly or choosing not to back them up.

These chats will include your deleted messages.
