Google introduces a message organization feature with the auto-delete OTPs option in Messaging app. Message organization sorts your messages automatically by categories like All, Personal, OTPs, Offers, and Transactions. While the Auto-delete OTPs option automatically deletes one-time passwords 24 hours after they’re received. These features are available on Android 8.0 and later phones.

Since OTPs (one-time passwords) expire after a few minutes, it is useless to keep them on the phone. So, the Auto delete OTPs feature will be a handy way to de-clutter your messaging inbox. If you enable this feature, it will delete current and future OTPs permanently from your phone.


OTPs auto-deletion is a part of the message organization feature of the Google Messaging app. Here is how to enable this feature to auto-delete OTPs from your phone after 24hrs.
