Getting Whatsapp messages back that aren’t backed up?

Please can someone help me?! 

I accidentally managed to uninstall WhatsApp from my phone yesterday and it turns out it wasn’t backed up 😩 I thought it was.  

Can anyone tell me how to get these messages back I’ve lost everything from end of March this year until yesterday. 


Thank you so much 


This is on a iPhone 8

    Simple. You can’t.

    The messages are all encrypted so once you deleted the app you also deleted the unique decryption key.

    So even if the message data still exists on your device storage, it’s just meaningless and undecipherable nonsense which even the creators of WhatsApp cannot make sense of.
