Has it ever happened that out of habit you accidentally deleted a useful notification without checking? Or maybe sometimes you just want to know the time of a lost notification. Also, there are some apps which show only one notification at a time. When you receive new notification of that app, the old one gets removed automatically. Android does not allow its users to see the old notifications directly. So, in this article, you’ll find out how you can recover Android notification history and see the past notifications.
Check Deleted Notifications On Android Phone
Many phones having Android latest version do not have Settings shortcut in their widgets section. So, there are many apps that can be used to get this task done. I have selected one app that works well on my phone Redmi Note 5 Pro. It will definitely work on your Android phone too to get the notification log.
- If you are reading this article on your phone then get the download link from here. Or you can search for ‘Notification History’ in Google Play Store. There are also other apps available with the same name. The developer of this app is mydloch’s dev-team.
- Open the app and give necessary permissions like Accessibility, Notification access etc.
- Now you can see all the notifications of your phone on this app’s home screen. Remember that it is not possible to see the past notifications of the time before the app was installed.
The app allows you to delete all the notifications by a dedicated button at top right. You can also delete a particular notification by right/left swipe. Also, it is possible to see yesterday’s notifications directly from the menu. This app can also be used to check deleted messages on WhatsApp as the messages’ notification will be saved in the app.
Recover Android Notification History
There is one more notification tracker app you will find useful that we used to view the deleted WhatsApp messages. You can read about that in our earlier guide which explains how to read WhatsApp messages even if they are unsent.
We all know the importance of notifications. Apps like these are of great help at times to view the deleted notification by accessing the notification history. If you use any other method to regain lost notifications, let us know in the comments.
