When you log into Messenger on a new device, you need to restore your end-to-end encrypted chats that you saved in secure storage. This lets you see all your Messenger chats on your new device.
You have a few options to restore your end-to-end encrypted chats:
- Use a PIN
- Use an Apple account (iOS devices only)
- Use a Google account (Android only)
- Use a 40-character code
- Use a one-time code
If none of these options work or if you've forgotten your PIN or 40-character code, you can learn how to reset your security method for end-to-end encrypted chats on Messenger.
