The Android notifications menu sometimes fills up so fast, it’s easy to close it without properly checking it. If you’ve done this, and think you might have accidentally swiped something important into non-existence, you can still get it back. Here we show you how to recover lost notifications on your Android device by finding the Android notification history.
The notification log – where you can view deleted notifications – is only available on Android 4.3 Jellybean or above. For the purposes of this walkthrough, we used stock Android Lollipop.
