Since WhatsApp introduced the "Delete for Everyone" feature back in November 2017, the recipient can understand that a message has been deleted as there is a prompt in its place with the "This message has been deleted" tag.
WhatsApp has quietly changed the way its message deletion feature works.
The reason why some of the users were able to delete 3 years old message through some tricks was because WhatsApp did not check any other important information other than the ID of the message and the revoke request. This message has the same ID of the message that the user wants to revoke. At the time of the launch, it was mentioned that users only had seven minutes to revoke the sent message. Report states that WhatsApp has now improved its maths so it now finds a message in the database having the same ID as that of the evoke message request, it first goes through the data of the message saved in the database. The post points out that this will make sure no-one can illegally delete messages older than 24 hours for everyone.
