All it takes to do so is an Internet connection and a free Google account.

Wayback Machine is a web archiving service that takes screenshots of websites and caches them to make it accessible for the world to see. It likewise takes screenshots of Reddit posts, so you can move back in time and see a comment before it got deleted.
However, I won’t recommend you to take Wayback Machine as your primary answer for reading deleted comments on Reddit.
It’ll require a touch of hard work to reveal the exact comment you are searching for – this includes searching through many screenshots of a similar post.
How it works?
Essentially enter the exact URL of the post of which you might want to see deleted comments. Wayback Machine shows a calendar with a circle on dates indicating that screenshots of this post have been taken on those particular days.
Presently you simply need to search for the day when the comment was deleted and see all the screenshots to see the comment. It very well may be really hard when compared to other arrangements.
To effortlessly pinpoint to the deleted comment:
1. Go to Reddit and perceive how long prior the comment was deleted (it will be written alongside it).
2. Now utilize a calculator and a calendar to move back that numerous days from the current day when you are seeing the comment (For instance, on the off chance that it says 67 days old, at that point essentially move 67 days back from the current day and see what is the date on that specific day).
3. When you have the exact day when that comment was deleted essentially move to the exact date in the Wayback Machine.
4. Now hover your mouse cursor over that date and you should see some screenshots with the exact time when they were taken. You now simply need to search for the screenshot that was taken before the comment was deleted.
5. An easier approach to pinpoint the right screenshot is to open the last screenshot of the day and search for the deleted comment. Observe the exact time of cancellation written alongside it in hours.
6. Afterward, move to the screenshot before that specific time and you should see the content of the deleted comment.
7. Wayback Machine takes screenshots dependent on activity on a web link. The more popular the post was, the more screenshots will be taken (for example more chances of reaching the exact comment).
8. Even if the post was not all that popular, it will even now have some screenshots when individuals were commenting on it.
- Removeddit.com is one of the most favorite tools for users. I previously utilized ceddit, however now ceddit.com has switched to another webpage, and the results are not fulfilling.
- Removeddit automatically reopens deleted comments, you can even filter them in the event that you just need to read deleted or removed comments.
- At the point when you first open removeddit.com, you will be presented with a rundown of Reddit posts and comments that have been deleted.
