Is it possible to recover files deleted by dfndr security functions?

Hey, we want to better understand your perception about this and thus improve our app.
How about helping us out by answering a quick survey?

Please note that it is not possible to recover files removed by dfndr security cleanup functions such as Duplicate Photos, Whatsapp Cleanup and Messenger Cleanup. For security reasons and out of respect for our user’s privacy, there is no trash for this type of cleaning, and therefore the files are permanently deleted.

Anyway, don’t worry, dfndr security DOES NOT delete any files without your authorization. The actions performed by our app always depend on our user’s confirmation.

If you still have questions that are not addressed here, please contact us at
