Recover deleted photos on Android using Dumpster

For starters, Dumpster is an app that you can download from the Google Play Store. The Deep Scan feature can retrieve deleted photos if it hasn’t been long since you deleted them.

While the app is free, one of the shortcomings is that as soon as you open it, you’ll be bombarded with ads. If you wish to recover a photo using the free version, you’ll need to watch a 30-second ad. The premium version removes all ads and provides other features, but for an asking subscription price of $170 a year, it’s too expensive to consider.
