  • After that, you will need to open your phone’s widgets and search for “settings shortcut” and drag and drop it to your home screen, then a pop-up opens showing many shortcut settings, you have to choose “Notification log” and then the widget will be placed on your home screen. ( i am assuming that your sender has unsend the message, then after you are applying this trick)
  • After that, you can see all that every notification records that you receive a day and then you need to select those Instagram notification that you have received just right now. (make sure you should not clear the notifications from the drop-down menu)

  • Now tap on that notification you want to see that unsend message, now you can see many codes, after that, you need to find “android.text:” or that “sender’s username” on that menu.
  • Congratulations, you just find your unsend message.

Some limitations are there that, you can only checkup up to 50 messages because the notifications log can only hold up to only 50 log entries. Also, this trick may not work if you clear or swipe notifications, the notification logs may clear automatically if your android version is below 8.0.

But even so, many advantages are there, that you not only can take up use in reading unsend deleted messages of Instagram but also you can use in facebook messenger (if any how the messenger stop working and you won’t able to see messages). But it will not work on WhatsApp unsend messages, because many update patches have come, it will show “this message was deleted



This is a great Instagram trick to read unsend messages, you can use on almost every android but as I told above, this trick may not work on Android below 5.0 because there may not be any “settings shortcut” or may not record the log data. But this will perfectly work on Android 8.0 (as tested), as it will keep the notifications logs even if the notifications were clear from the drop-down menu.
