  • (2022-11-08) Rostyslav Zaporozhets: dislike
  • (2022-06-28) Mohammed Alsuaer: not working with me i just get a blank page after i download html file
  • (2022-03-17) Ck Tran: This app needs to display the Date Stamp. It's a crucial detail that's missing when It shouldn't be.
  • (2021-11-01) ina biebel: Works well until the end when the browser closes for no reason. This happened 4 times already, right before the end of the zipping process :(
  • (2021-07-26) Tunnel services: Really helpful personnel, had an issue at start but they fixed it in no time. Would highly recommend the purchase. Worth the buck!
  • (2021-06-24) Andrej Z: Hi where do I buy the license? I can't find the link
  • (2021-05-23) Edwin Ogunde: I bought the license to save a medium sized chat, but the downloading process gets stuck in "Converting media to base64". I've left it for hours but the converting never stopped. I give it 2 stars because it didn't have any problems with downloading only the media files. If this gets fixed I'll revaluate my review.
  • (2021-04-28) Ilja Engelen: it does saves chats in photo's indeed, but it does not save videos? At least I can not play them, how can I solve this? Thanks for your help!
  • (2021-04-20) Akex Jester: I managed to export a huge chat with this plugin, including all the attachments. The creator helped me with very prompt updates and instructions :) This really works!
  • (2021-04-06) Mo: It's doing its job perfectly, but if I remove the extension, the formatting becomes horrible. Is there no way to keep the Instagram formatting without the extension being installed and activated?
  • (2021-03-04) Daismism: Hi! I also couldn't access it anymore as it shows "Please buy the license key and enter it here" tab
  • (2021-01-24) Filip Kubeček: Hi, I bought this extension couple of days ago, even used it (downloaded some chats), but now it keeps saying "Please buy the license key and enter it here" (and it refers to https://chatsaver.org/buy), don't you know what should I do with it? Then, I have one comment about the app: It doesn't download the names of profiles of messages which were sent by people in group chat who left the chat (they aren't in the group anymore, but their messages are). Isn't there a possibility to improve that so I can see who sent these messages? Thanks a lot!
  • (2021-01-16) Daismism: How could I listen to the recordings? it seems like I can't play the recordings on zip file and on the html, either error or 0:00 or the file itself isn't opening. Otherwise is good
  • (2021-01-03) Malak: why i cannot use the trial virson or buy it now ?
  • (2020-12-30) Ga. Binete: Great! It's likely the best you can get. For those who can't see the pay button enabled, try with a VPN from a different zone.
  • (2020-12-20) Arthur Resende: it's a very nice app, you almost saved my life but it would be nice if the file generated would save the disappearing media in the chat as well... but i don't know if that's possible
  • (2020-12-13) Eszter Kecskés D.: Works as described.
  • (2020-12-09) Kasım Gülmez: works very well
  • (2020-12-07) Paola Delli Santi: Cannot read property 'threads' of undefined
  • (2020-11-04) Koray: Great tool, but it is stuck on "forming an HTML file". Does it just take a long time to process? it's been about 10 min's now.
  • (2020-11-02) Married Happy: The extension is absolutely amazing. The only issue I seem to be having is it keeps saying free trial expired, even though I bought the full version. If it wasn't for that I would have given it a 5 star review. Thanks!
  • (2020-10-29) Khursheed Alam: amazing this is life saver
  • (2020-10-18) Harry Robson: When I use it says "blob.text is not a function" & nothing happens, could you help?
  • (2020-10-08) sai Aravind: Thanks for this software, but is it normal that it shows 20,000+ messages while its downloading but once I open the HTML file, i cant vide anything? Is it because the conversation im trying to back up is too long?
  • (2020-10-07) Bike Geckinli: not practical I tried to export chat history with account names on one file, not possible. i can not think of a use of this tool unless otherwise. each zip or html folder is not easy to read too.
  • (2020-10-05) Leitura Tarot: I love this extension! That's amazing that now you can download more than 20 conversations, however I have really maaaaanyy and after a while a get an error "can't read thread property". Is there a way to avoid it?
  • (2020-09-28) Harshit Garg: Hi it used to work great but now i start getting the error Cannot read property 'item_type' of undefined
  • (2020-09-26) Suliman Alhomidey: im getting this error! how i can fix it? Cannot read property 'item_type' of undefined
  • (2020-09-24) Nick Morgan: Works amazing!! However, I seem to only be able to download DMs for the 20 more recent conversations I've had with people. Is this a restriction for the free trial? Great extension by the way. 5/5 stars for sure. From one developer to another, this is very well made. :)
  • (2020-09-20) Krista Levine: As of September 20, 2020 doesn't seem to be working. Running Windows 8.1, latest chrome. I'm not sure why it's not working for me, but it seems to be working for everyone else. Basically can't download them at all, doesn't show the download icon or anything. Can only click the app icon and it'll open chats in a limited blown up window. That's pretty much it.
  • (2020-09-16) Jasser Masoud: Get an Error Loading, Check console for details Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 429 () dm.js:223 TypeError: Cannot read property 'prev_cursor' of undefined at downloadChat (dm.js:160)
  • (2020-09-08) Josii97: Life saver!! Super easy to use and works perfectly :D cheers to developer 🍻
  • (2020-09-03) Onur: It works, thanks mate.
  • (2020-09-01) Ky. S.: Worked for me perfectly. Tested on 1 chat, 7 days (not very big size) and extracted it to a perfect designed html file. I'll have this extension as No1 if someone asks or if I need to use it more.
  • (2020-08-25) Param Chaudhari: Here i confirm i have downloaded 24k + 105k + 5 messages now...which includes many media messages tooo...thank u so much for this gr8 help....!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2020-08-24) Candela G.: Works perfectly. I used the free trial and now I want to buy the full version but the button doesn't work. :(
  • (2020-08-23) Kai Engelbrecht: Thank you! It works really well, and I can confirm I could download a direct message history with more than 27'000 items and 500 media files! The only thing not working is voice messages, they are all empty. Please keep up the good work :)
  • (2020-07-14) Dario Emanuele Albini: Simply awesome. It worked perfectly. It keeps the chat well formatted and it saves all the media (videos, pics and audios) too. Boom. The only thing that is missing at the moment is that the liked messages are not saved.
  • (2020-07-02) Mustafa Sungur: Cannot read property 'profile_pic_url' of undefined please help :(
  • (2020-06-28) Fatma: There's this pop up that says "Cannot read property 'profile_pic_url' of undefined"
