You might be wondering how to see deleted discord messages as discord says there is no way to see deleted messages.
But in this article, I am sharing the method through which you can see the deleted discord messages for DMs as well as on the server.
You can view discord deleted messages by 2 methods, where you can use the first method of Bot if you are an admin, and the second will be through the plug-in which can be used by anyone.
How to See Deleted Messages on Discord
Probably most of the discord users want to see or recover the discord deleted messages because they want to report any users to the discord or server mod.
I would request you to use these methods only for the legit purpose as this can be against someone’s privacy.
Method 1:- Using Plug-in (Everyone)
This method is for everyone and does not need any special access, as in this method you need to install the better discord and plug-in on your discord account. Follow the below easy steps to set up the plug-in on your discord account.
In the first step, you will have to download and install better discord which you can do by clicking on this link. You will be redirected to the website, click on the download
In the next window choose your operating system by clicking on it. Once the file is downloaded, click on it and click on RUN or OPEN to install.
The installation box will now be displayed where it will ask you to choose the discord version. For a normal discord application choose Install to Stable.
Keep following the instruction of installation and once done proceed to the next step.
Now in the second step, you need to download the plugin, click the link to open the website. Once the website is up, scroll down to Message Logger V2 and click on download.
The plugin will now be downloaded, click on the downloaded file and then click on RUN or OPEN.
You might get a pop-up of “I am a Plugin for better discord” just click on ok to proceed.
Do you need some help can be another pop-up, click on Yes.
Now a new folder will all the plugins will be displayed with .json file extension. Do not close this folder instead you can minimize it.
Open your discord app again and click on the user settings located on the very left-hand bottom. From the settings, scroll down to the bottom and you will find a new better discord section by the name BANDAGED BD.
Click on Plugins and you may see all the plugins installed in the plugins section. Click the toggle switch to enable and now you will be able to see all the deleted messages in discord.
Just try deleting any messages, and you will see the message will be still displayed there in the red color even after deleted.
If you do not see the plugins, then click on the plugins folder that is in blue color. Now go to the download folder and copy the plugin file you just downloaded and paste or drag into the plugin folder.
Method 2:- Using YAGPDB Bot (How to See Deleted Messages on Discord)
There are many bots that can be used in discord to see deleted messages in the audit log. In this article, I will be explaining to you how to view discord deleted messages through the YAGPDB bot.
This method can only be used by the users having admin rights and this bot is free to use and will only show you the last 10 deleted messages in the free version. You can upgrade and purchase the plan for more features.
Use these methods to view deleted messages only when you want to report someone who broke the discord violence policy.
Let’s see how to set-up this bot to the discord server.
Open the YAGPDP official website and click on Add to server from the top menu of the site.
Select a server from the drop-down where you want to add this bot. You select the server where you want to view the deleted discord messages.
In the next box click on, Authorize.
The bot will now be added to the discord server, open your discord dashboard, and then click on the server where you just added the bot.
Now type the command –ud –a to recover the last 10 deleted messages.
How to Report someone on Discord
So far you learned two methods to see the discord deleted messages and as I know this is to report anyone on discord.
However, reporting someone on discord is easier when the messages are not deleted by simply copy the ID of the user and taking a screenshot of the message.
If you want to report someone for any harassment like abusive words or view then select Trust & Safety from the drop-down.
Now type your email and then in the report type choose harassment or whatever your issues are.
Type your description and subject, make sure you briefly explain the issue and then attach the screenshot of the message.
Reporting someone on discord to banned the users you need evidence and that can be done only with the screenshot of the violent or abusive message that the user used.
Either you can do this by taking a screenshot immediately or then you can report him by visiting the discord report site.
But the problem is when the message is deleted and we don’t have any evidence now to prove the user breaking the discord violence policy.
My first recommendation would be ignoring such users until they are crossing the limits. Once the limits are crossed you can use the above 2 methods to see their deleted messages and then report against the user.
Please let me know what exactly your issue was and which method did you use to recover the deleted messages.
