In the opened tab choose how you want your chat to be saved (as plain text, formatted HTML, CSV or a zip-file). - If you choose 'HTML' images, stickers and other files in the chat will be embedded in the HTML file. They will still be kept in Facebook servers and might stop being displayed after some time due to their tokens expiration. - If you choose the 'zip file' option, the chosen items (images, stickers, videos, etc.) will be saved locally to your computer and will be displayed in your chat as long as they are kept in the same folder as the HTML file. You can choose the type of files you want to save locally. The Time Intervals option is for setting random time intervals between requests that the extension is sending to Facebook servers to fetch messages. The fastest option is No interval. However, with big chats Facebook might cut the extension requests if they are too many, because it considers them suspicious. In this case, try choosing another time interval from the options. 4) Return to the messages page and click the extension icon. You can choose the start and end dates of the download, to save a chat in parts. 5) When the chat is ready, it will either be saved automatically to the default folder for downloads, or you will be prompted to choose a folder on your computer to save the file to (this depends on the settings of your browser). --- FAQ: https://chatsavers.org/faq.html --- ------- SUPPORT: -------- [email protected] https://facebook.com/chatsaver

Latest reviews

  • (2023-03-17) Asinna Ryna: its need to pay to get the application. i thinks its free to use
  • (2023-03-14) Gabrielle Kendall: Paid $5 to only download 100 messages out of thousands...waste of money
  • (2023-02-09) Webmage Philippines: Earlier ads said its free now its Paid
  • (2023-01-31) Justyna Gregorowicz: Rozszerzenie płatne.
  • (2023-01-21) Joe Shaw: It was working on Chrome until i got an error saying 'Failed to get messages from the server'. Then i tried it on Microsoft Edge, kept getting the same 'Failed to get messages from the server' error. I tried changing time intervals in the Options menu. Still the same error. I also tried deleting then re-installing the extension and still got the same error. So then i tried using a completely different computer that has Chrome on it and i'm still getting the 'Failed to get messages from the server' error... Eventually, i tried downloading messages in short spaces of time (e.g. the space of 1 month, or 2 months). It wouldn't work when i did this at the start and kept coming up with the same error, but then after a while it suddenly started working when doing this on the Edge Browser. It's a good extension well worth the 6 dollars and a lot of people are writing unfair reviews. I've also tried and paid for their Instagram chat saver as well and it's brilliant! This extension is better than using the 'Download your Information' method on Facebook. Downloading your Facebook information from Facebook itself isn't as good because it's more complicated and messy, for example when you download a HTML of a conversation Facebook doesn't let you view audio or video files from that HTML only in a separate folder for media. This extension lets you view media or audio messages when you download the HTML file of a conversation and i think this extension is organized and simplistic. I'm leaving 4 out of 5 stars because the 'Failed to get messages from the server' was very difficult to deal with and i was nearly about to just delete the extension until it basically just randomly started working again. So i suggest to developers to try to fix this issue other than that it's a brilliant useful extension :)
  • (2023-01-05) Krzysztof Chwedziak: its not working at all
  • (2022-10-28) Jo Luijten: I thought that it would save all the messages, including images and voice files. It just exports a TXT file. When I tried to request a refund in the first minutes, I couldn't find the refund option because Chrome sees it as a free app. Via a trick the software developer makes money.
  • (2022-10-26) Justin Rille: I kept getting: "An error occured. Please check the Console tab of the Developer Tools window for more information" and "[Messages Saver for Facebook]: No messages for this period of time." So I messaged the developer. Got a response back very fast. Recommended to use Microsoft Edge. Like come on, who uses that. But after reading reviews, there seems to be a problem with the add on using Chrome. Used it on Edge, worked like a charm. Took a few tries with the options to see what I liked best. Works like a charm!
  • (2022-10-06) Paty Sv: No funciona, me pide recargar la página y no avanza de ahí
  • (2022-08-17) Petar Stojanoski: If i could rate it with 10 starts i would. August/2022 Facebook doesn't let you download messages anymore to your computer. After many tries i gave up and i found this Extension. It wasn't working for me either despite i paid without any consideration. After reading a note that this works on Microsoft Edge, guess what, it did. I needed almost 200.000 messages with my partner since we needed a proof of communication for our visa. This extension has given me the best document that i have to provide!
  • (2022-07-28) Steven Wright: WARNING IS A BAIT AND SWITCH THEY WANT YOU TO PAY TO USE IT AND FACEBOOK ACTUALLY LETS YOU DO THIS FOR FREE, THIS EXTENSION IS A SCAM How to do this for free and not get scammed by this ridiculous extension 1. facebook.com 2. profile>settings and privacy>settings 3. on left side, press 'your facebook information' 4. press download your information, then choose what you want to save, among the options being 'messages' 5. rate this extension 0 stars because its scams people who aren't knowledgable
  • (2022-07-18) Nowa K: date not work
  • (2022-05-30) Ayann Nedeha: useless addon don't download.
  • (2022-05-22) Emily Van der meer: Followed the instructions and downloaded to pc, refreshed the chats and even restarted my computer twice. Still can't get the date range box to become responsive so the extension hasn't helped me at all to save my chats (required because facebook is cancelling messenger for anyone without a fb account - frustrating!)
  • (2022-05-20) Justin Stibbins: After speaking with the creator of the app, all issues were worked out and was refunded since it didn't work out for me. The app didn't work for me personally, but the app creator is a stand up person and you should give the apps a try knowing that the developer is an honest person.
  • (2022-05-16) kim heng (harambo8229): I bought the paid version for 5$ how ever when i went to download the chat, i got an error message saying "An error occured. Please check the Console tab of the Developer Tools window for more information" and "[Messages Saver for Facebook]: No messages for this period of time." I dont know what to do please help
  • (2022-05-15) Korutz: Doesn't work. It says "Please reload this page", but I already did.
  • (2022-03-29) Luisa Anderlini: was good then they made it payware
  • (2022-02-08) Shamus Downs: This is a pointless extension outside of mobile phones. They do not tell you until you try to use it, that it must be only for the messenger app itself or a mobile website version of Facebook which, everybody knows, Facebook no longer allows you to even see your message history ir send messages outside of the app. It will keep asking you to load a www.m.facebook.com/ address to even get this to work, blaming Facebooks new API update as a possible reason, but the problem is that's a Bs lie. They know you cannot use it in a mobile browser or desktop browser, and this app has been purposely pushed to the top of the search algorithm of Google, because they got rid if EVERY SINGLE OTHER EXTENSION that did what this app claims to do...and those others did it for FREE! Obvious collusion with Google on this one, and it does not work as advertised. Don't believe me? Go try for yourself. You won't be able to do it outside of the messenger app, and this is a browser extension, so you won't be able to use it! The fake bot accounts giving 4 to 5 star reviews with no profile picture, are probably paid shills to try and up the review score as to not be taken down. Again, they are lying because you cannot view your messages through the browser, Facebook put a stop to this on mobile devices over a year ago. It is the entire reason why you now have to have two apps to use Facebook, one specifically for just messaging.
  • (2022-01-28) Adam Ely: Says it only works on mobile versions of the page. I can't use Chrome extensions on my phone or see chat history in the mobile view on desktop. Useless.
  • (2022-01-25) Björn Lundin: Just annoying. Downloaded the extension on desktop google chrome and activated the extension. When trying to follow instructions, select a chat to mark "from" and "to" dates there is a message: Make sure you are in a mobile facebook page m.facebook.com/messages ... how do you think now? Download chrome extension to the desktop, and then try to save it from a mobile phone? (The mobile version page does not work surfing from a desktop)
  • (2022-01-23) Alexandra Frolova: Used to work, but now it is asking |Please make sure that you are in Facebook mobile page https://m.facebook.com/messages and have selected a chat| which is not possible anymore. I canont open on a desktop, and I cannot open it on a mobile browser too. So it's impossible to save a chat anymore.
  • (2021-10-28) maciekre: OSZUŚCI!!!
  • (2021-10-28) Christof Jeffersson: Worked perfectly well for my needs! I cannot access the mobile messages page any longer, so I used the Microsoft Edge version, and it worked just fine. At the moment, this app is the only one that could download my Messenger chats.
  • (2021-10-10) Bożena Nadolska: nie dziala, nie mozna wprowadzic daty
  • (2021-09-10) amitava mozumder: it doesnt work at all, it asks you to pay!! for what?
  • (2021-09-06) Kurt van Ryswyk: Tried to use. Immediately demanded that I pay for a license. No transparency in this. NO THANKYOU
  • (2021-09-05) Donna M: I used the Microsoft Edge extension and it worked like a charm, thanks a lot. 5 bucks is not a big amount to pay for being able to download my precious conversations.
  • (2021-09-04) Mike Doroshenko II: Asks for license after installation instead of upfront being honest, uninstalling.
  • (2021-09-01) Sam N.: THIS SUCKS -- hevelata font souhld be free to use im not paying for my owm freedom of speech on facebook dont charge money plz thank yuou
  • (2021-08-27) Sophia Shuder: I just got it and it's telling me I need a license key. Also doesn't say how much the license is, or where I can get it.
  • (2021-08-20) Mandi Parker: Doesn't work. Won't allow me to define a date range, literally cannot click on the date range to select anything.
  • (2021-07-27) Heather L.: This extension requires a $5 registration. It demands a key when you attempt to download messages. It would have been nice if they had simply posted that on their main page before I downloaded it.
  • (2021-07-24) Krazy Killer2200 (Gaming): Complete waste of time. I send messages to myself, things like reminders, passwords, story ideas. I store my videos and photos there too. For some reason Facebook has decided that they are going to stop me from sending messages and then this morning it said that I could 'Start a new conversation' at 22:15. I don't want to lose my stuff again. So thanks for wasting my time with this RUBBISH THAT DON'T WORK!!!!!!!!
  • (2021-05-01) Vindra Khanai: Does not work after downloaded Trial expired as soon as it was downloaded. Prompt asked for registration code and payment. There was no trial.
  • (2021-04-17) Lance gerald: you have to pay for it before using it wth is this
  • (2021-03-18) Katie Rayner: It doesn't work, comes up with the following error: Please make sure that you are in Facebook mobile page https://m.facebook.com/messages and have selected a chat but my computer wont allow me to visit the messages on the mobile page, as soon as i click messages it takes me to the updated site - does anyone know a way around this?
  • (2021-01-27) Celia Tais: Does not work at all. Takes forever to load. I've been waiting for an hour and it still hasn't loaded the data of my chat.
  • (2021-01-26) Alejandra Gutierrez: Worked very well for me. would recommend
  • (2020-12-14) Henryk Brzoska: Not working. "Please go to https://www.facebook.com or https://www.messenger.com to download your messages or reload the page." on messenger pages
  • (2020-12-13) Marte Petterson: flott
  • (2020-12-13) Laura Arnold: I needed an app to save my correspondence with a dear friend who passed away recently. This app is a lifesaver! Thanks and God bless you.
  • (2020-12-12) Alejandra Jimenez: This extension doesnt work even in the first step. I cannot select a date and save to download a specific chat. I tried to switch many, MANY times between chats, also reload the page, nothing seems to work. Same issue, I cannot even start by selecting the dates. Do not spend money on this, it doesnt work!!
  • (2020-12-10) michelle chang: It's useless, I download it and pay 3.99. It doesn't make sense, it cheat me and stole my money.
  • (2020-11-13) Bethany Robinson Crossfit: downloads the wrong chat entirely
  • (2020-10-30) Myan Pham: WORST APP EVER, DONT INSTALL, IT IS A BUG
  • (2020-10-04) Jirka Hajsl: It does not work if you have more then 5000 messages... Download progress is seen in circle but after you get 100% you can see "Processing received messages" and takes more than 10 hours but no success. I have bought it.
  • (2020-09-10) Daniel Cappell: I paid twice for this glitchy thing because im a dummy. then i realized theres nothing it even contends to do that the facebook takeout cant do better (google "Accessing & Downloading Your Information")
  • (2020-09-07) Karen Ela: Just installed it and it says trial time expired even though I just paid for it!
  • (2020-09-06) Jason N.: Really good extension. Downloaded more than 120,000 messages real fast. First I got confused when it showed me wrong number of messages in a chat, but after reading the FAQ I understood that I only needed to toggle between chats to fix this issue. Thanks for developing, it's a really useful app.
