How do you find archived messages on messenger on iPhone?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To find archived messages on Messenger on an iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Ensure that you have the latest version of the Messenger app installed on your iPhone. You can update the app from the App Store if needed.

2. Open the Messenger app on your iPhone by tapping on its icon, usually found on your home screen.

3. Once the app is open, you will see the main screen with your recent conversations. At the top left corner of the screen, you will find your profile photo or avatar. Tap on it to access your Messenger settings.

4. In your profile settings, you will see several options. Look for and tap on “Archived Chats”. This option is usually located towards the middle of the list.

5. By tapping on “Archived Chats”, you will be taken to a new screen where you can find all your archived conversations stored in your Messenger account.

6. Here, you can scroll through the list of archived chats to find the specific conversation you are looking for. The chats will be displayed in chronological order, with the most recent ones at the top.

7. Once you find the archived conversation you want to retrieve, simply tap on it to open and view the messages.

8. If you wish to unarchive the conversation and bring it back to your main chat list, you can do so by sending a new message to the person or group. This will automatically unarchive the chat and move it back to your main conversation screen.

It’s worth noting that archived messages are different from deleted messages. Archived messages are simply hidden from your main chat list but can be easily accessed again, while deleted messages are permanently removed from your account and cannot be recovered.

I hope this detailed guide helps you find your archived messages on Messenger on your iPhone. If you have any further questions or need assistance with anything else, feel free to ask!
