Here's how to read deleted messages on WhatsApp

WhatsApp recently introduced a 'Delete for Everyone' option which allows users to delete delivered message on the receiver's smartphone. However, users can simply access the deleted messages, even if the message has not been opened, thanks to a few apps.

WhatsApp recently introduced a 'Delete for Everyone' option which allows users to delete delivered message on the receiver's smartphone. However, users can simply access the deleted messages, even if the message has not been opened, thanks to a few apps.

One such as is called ‘Notification History’. The app, which is available on the Google Play Store, will create a shortcut on your home screen. You can tap the icon to open the notification registry of the Android system. You will have to search for the notification which says WhatsApp. The blog points out, “the message will be in the line that says "android.text", as you can see in the illustrative images at the beginning.”

Another app, called Nova Launcher will also do the trick. All you will have to do is long press on an empty area on the home screen. Tap on ‘Widgets’. Later, long press on ‘Activities’ and drop when you jump to the home screen. A list will appear – click ‘Settings’. Lastly, in the sub-list, tap the ‘Notification Log’ to create the shortcut on the home screen. You can then enter the Android notification history and search for the WhatsApp deleted messages respectively.

Recently, researchers at Israeli cybersecurity firm said they had found a flaw in WhatsApp that could allow hackers to modify and send fake messages in the popular social messaging app. CheckPoint said the vulnerability gives a hacker the possibility "to intercept and manipulate messages sent by those in a group or private conversation" as well as "create and spread misinformation".

The report of the flaw comes as the Facebook-owned is coming under increasing scrutiny as a means of spreading misinformation due to its popularity and convenience for forwarding messages to groups.

Last month, the app announced limits of forwarding messages following threats by the Indian government to take action after more than 20 people were butchered by crazed mobs after being accused of child kidnapping and other crimes in viral messages circulated wildly on WhatsApp. WhatsApp said in a statement: "We carefully reviewed this issue and it's the equivalent of altering an email to make it look like something a person never wrote."

Founded in 2009 and purchased by Facebook in 2014, WhatsApp said that at the beginning of the year it had more than 1.5 billion users who exchanged 65 billion messages per day.

How to Become a Painting Contractor

Are you interested in pursuing a career as a painting contractor? Before you actually make that leap you should know that there are quite a few steps that you need to take to get started.

1. Get your qualifications

The first thing that you should do is make sure you’re actually qualified to be a painting contractor. In the United States all painting contractors need to complete the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) program.

Other countries and jurisdictions may have different requirements too – and you should look them up.

2. Apply for a license

If you’re going to be running a business or working as an independent painting contractor you’ll normally need to apply for a license. The regulations for licensing tend to vary by state, so you should look them up then apply.

3. Build up experience

Experience is crucial if you want to be a painting contractor, and it will help you to hone your skills and get a better idea of what the business is all about. It may be a good idea to take part in a painter’s apprenticeship, or sign on to work with a professional painting contractor before starting out on your own.

4. Get the tools you need

In order to work as a painting contractor you’ll need a wide range of tools including different types of rollers, sprayers, extension poles, ladders, brushes, sandpaper, and much more. On top of that you’ll also need a reliable supplier of various types of paint.

How to Become a Painting Contractor

If you intend to run a business there may be other business tools and software that you’ll want to prepare as well. It would be extremely useful to have paint estimating software in particular to help you estimate your costs.

5. Register your business

The process of registering a business as a painting contractor can be quite involved. Not only will you have to register the actual business, but you may have to pass your contractor’s certification exam, acquire liability insurance, purchase surety bonds, and fulfill other requirements.

Once again the exact requirements will vary from one jurisdiction to the next, so some research will be needed on your end.

6. Attend business classes

Make no mistake running your own business is no joke, and initially you may find it difficult to market your business, sign on potential clients, calculate project expenses, keep track of your accounts, and so on. If you have no prior experience, attending business classes or enrolling in a course of some sort may be a good idea.

That should give you a rough idea of what’s involved in becoming a painting contractor. As you can see it is mainly focused on working as an independent contractor or starting your own business, and you can skip those areas if you just want to start by pursuing an apprenticeship.

Although there is a lot involved in becoming a painting contractor, it is definitely an appealing career and one that is constantly in-demand.
