View WeChat Messages from Locked WeChat Account

“I forget my WeChat password and try to log in it on my iPhone with wrong password for several times, now my WeChat account is locked. Is it possible for me to view WeChat messages from locked WeChat account?”

It happens that when we didn’t log out our WeChat for a long time, when we reinstall it and log in it, we may input the wrong password. Or some other people are trying to log in your WeChat, our WeChat account will be locked. Then we may wonder could we still view our WeChat messages from locked WeChat account?

Yes, it’s possible when you have done backups on your iTunes and iCloud, or you can relay in third-party software for help. For detailed steps, you can follow below page.

View WeChat Messages from iTunes Backup

Choose the backup files you need, tap on “Restore Backup” and confirm with “Restore”.

Swipe to begin the set up progress, choose the files you need, tap on “Restore Backup”, and confirm with “Restore”.
