iMessage is convenient and safe. There is less risk from spammers and hackers.
If you receive spam messages, you can easily mark them as junk. But what happens if you accidentally report text messages as junk?
What happens if you accidentally hit Report Junk on your iPhone?
When you mistakenly report a text message as junk on iMessage, it will not be permanently deleted from your device. But once the message is deleted from junk, you cannot undo it.
iMessage will forward information about the sender of the text to Apple. However, this doesn’t mean that the sender will be automatically blocked from sending messages in the future.
Instead, you can block the sender from your phone if you want to block them. Apple may ban them if they are reported severally as having sent spam messages.
How do you unmark text as junk?
You can unmark the texts as junk using the following steps:
- Open the iPhone’s Settings app.
- Tap on Messages.
- Scroll down the menu and select junk on the Message filtering tab.
- Tap the Junk tab to find all your junk mail.
- Tap on the icon to view messages. Select the Clear All button to delete all messages from junk. Tap Restore to restore the messages to your inbox.
Next time you accidentally report a message as junk, you don’t need to worry since you can easily recover it. Simply follow the steps we’ve shared above.
