How to See Deleted Messages on Discord [3 Easy Ways - 2024]

Written By Farhan Max

If you’re someone like me who often accidentally delete messages in Discord or needs to confront someone for an offensive deleted message, then you’re in the right place if you want to re-incarnate them.


Discord doesn’t permit you to take a screenshot of the messages as user privacy concerns. So, the only way to report a deleted offensive message is to view it somehow and then report to Discord with a screenshot of it.

In this post, I will show you three easy methods to see deleted messages in a Discord server. So, without any further adieu, let’s begin our journey.

Different Methods to See Deleted Messages on Discord

Based on your requirements, there are different ways of getting hold of deleted messages on Discord. You can see the deleted messages adding different plug-ins and bots with your Discord account.

If you’re a server admin, you can see the deleted messages by adding bots specifically made to do this task.

But don’t get hopeless if you’re just a general user and trying to see deleted messages for a noble purpose. There are some plug-ins for general users, specially built for reading the server log and presenting the deleted messages of the members to you.

I’ve saved you from the hassle of finding the best bots and plug-ins. I selected three of the best bots and plug-ins from all available methods to see deleted Discord messages.

However, you can not use them to view deleted DMs as there is no way of viewing personal chats once you’ve deleted them.

So, the best possible ways to view deleted messages on the Discord server are:

  1. Dyno Bot.
  2. Logger Bot.
  3. Better Discord with MessageloggerV2 Plug-in.

You can follow any of these methods to see deleted Discord server messages based on your position. I’ll show all the steps to enable these methods in the sections below.

It logs the last fourteen days’ activity inside it.

The process of adding the Logger bot to your server is similar to adding Dyno bot. Don’t worry; I’m explaining the steps to add the Logger Bot to your server.
