    How do I make sure that my deleted messages on my phone cannot be retrieved. I tried to go into storage but I do not have a SD card. I am not that tech savvy. I read that they can still be retrieved until they are overwritten, whatever that means. Thanks!

    When you delete, you are giving a command to overwrite those messages, normally with other messages. It's rather like recording over an existing recording on a magnetic tape....the original recording is overwritten by the second.

    Check the Play Store for apps that claim to fully erase memory....with the usual caveats about trustworthiness.
