Tips on How to Prevent Message Loss on Android Device

1. Prevent Auto-Deletion of Android Messages

Even though some Android users never delete old messages on their phones, they complain that sometimes they just couldn’t find their old messages. If you also have this issue, you need to check the “Settings” under your messaging app. The stock setting for messages is limited, for example 200. If the number of your messages exceed that limit, the older messages will be deleted or hidden automatically. So what you need to do is to upgrade it to hold more messages or to turn off the “auto delete old messages” option on Android straightforwardly.
