  • (2023-10-27) Moo Jing Yi: I selected few chats and try to download but system pop up "no data to backup!". How can I do ? My desktop got all the chat history but my phone suddenly all went missing. I am looking to download the chat from web.whatsapp and try to restore at phone.
  • (2023-07-23) NiGHtWolf Gamings: Hello guys, I am using this paid Chrome Extension since 3 or 4 years, when WhatsApp didn't restricted 3 months web chat limit option, I had many time conversations with WhatsApp team to remove this restriction, or provide us a proper way to export our chat with voice notes/images/videos/contact etc, but as usual, they denied everything. You guys can also appeal them to make WhatsApp more easier to us. Meanwhile I had conversation with "Fatty Noparents" then owner / creator of "Backup WhatsApp Chats" chrome extension. What he has given us is really worth to use, but because of limitation of WhatsApp his team can't do more then this that we are expecting. WhatsApp has put everybody in a cage, i have 27GB WhatsApp data in my mobile and i want to export them to PDF or any other format, and this extension is a hope. This team is doing very well with a small amount for the lifetime. Please support them and don't put negative comments and what you peoples can do, just ask to WhatsApp about these limitations and ask them for solutions. Regards, NiGHtWolfXS202 Gamings
  • (2023-07-06) Aaditya Kalwani: i have 13 people's chats i would like to convert to .txt (each chat over the 40,000 messages - for my work purposes). can i get a trial key, or some way to first verify this works for me for 1 person before i purchase for the other 12?

  • (2023-04-03) Tammy Holden: Bought the extension however I am getting "Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'replace')" error. Hope to get a solution to this error.
  • (2023-03-31) Ali Sabeer (Alee): I paid for this extension and neither confirmation email received nor license key received. What should I do. Moreover, I am also telling you as per your suggestion I am using Microsoft Edge but tell me what is my license key? My email is [email protected]. Please help.
  • (2023-03-24) Felix Strasser: Not free. Stuff like this should be in the first picture!
  • (2023-01-27) Odon Piroton: Ne fonctionne pas.
  • (2023-01-18) Luis Alberto: The application is constantly being improved, new features are added. Very convenient and useful for saving chat history.
  • (2022-10-10) R: Not free, requires a license key.
  • (2022-09-24) Ravik Moreira da Rocha: It isn't working for me, it says "No messages for the chosen period", please fix it.
  • (2022-09-09) Gökhan Gurbetoğlu: Hello OP. Does this still work for the new WhatsApp Web? I have some old messages that I want to backup but it would be very hard to do manually. However, on WhatsApp Web, I can only go back a few days in the new version.
  • (2022-09-09) Manuel Oberle: Only downloads last months
  • (2022-09-04) María M. Martínez S.: Pesima aplicación. Pagar no cumplió lo que la app promete. No la recomiendo
  • (2022-08-08) Sonia Patrício: Baixei e não consegui utilizar uma única vez. Pede pra fazer logo o pagamento da licença.
  • (2022-07-01) Nicolás Musa: La versión Beta no descarga los últimos 90 días, ni la de 1 día. No sirve. Prueba mala. The Beta version does not download the last 90 days, nor the 1 day version. It does not work. Bad test.
  • (2022-06-08) Billy Cheung: Hi, the extension suddenly doesn't work properly today. It was stuck at the "preparing to download" page. I've tried refreshing the page several times and it still didn't work. 8 Jun 2022: Hi, the whatsapp chat doesn't work properly these 2 days. I guess it's due to the newer version of the whatsapp web. Will there be any fixes for that?
  • (2022-06-02) Tareq Amawi: SO BAD .. NOT FREE !
  • (2022-05-27) A A: After downloading extension, sends me to chatsaver.org where "merchant does not take Paypal" and then it won t take my debit or credit card. Unable to use without payment
  • (2022-05-19) David At: This app was excellent to use before. Since whatsapp web update, this app can not backup message anymore, please kindly fix it. Thanks
  • (2022-05-15) Krishay: Just asks you to pay the greedy devs money, no free trial nothing. Absolute waste of time
  • (2022-04-18) Chris Degan: This has stopped working properly. Seem to hit a limit on WhatsAppWeb regarding how many messages it will show .. if it doesn't show them this won't download them.
  • (2022-04-15) Zaki Jääskeläinen: Scaling for viewing in mobile browser? The extension seems to work pretty well but I wish the generated HTML would scale better when viewed in a mobile browser, to have similar size as when viewing the chat in WhatsApp. If I open the saved HTML on my phone I need a magnifying glass to read the chats.
  • (2022-04-07) Piotr Marszałek: Every time I click the extension it demands a licence code. After successfull verification, nothing happens. The message I found says: "DevTools failed to load source map: Could not load content for chrome-extension://gmbicfpadlmgkfhfepknbmemfhahelll/css/bootstrap.css.map: System error: net::ERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND"
  • (2022-04-04) Fwinter1: This worked brilliantly, but note that it no longer works if you're in the WhatsApp Web Beta, as there is a limit to how far back the chat will go. Not sure if it'll be possible for there to be a workaround for this, alas. However, still seems to work fine when not opted in.
  • (2022-04-03) Adrian M: Did not work. I tried getting messages from Apr 2020 to Apr 2022, but it only got from Jan 2022 to Apr 2022 - about 15000 messages which is way worse than whatsapp own limit of 40000. Waste of money
  • (2022-03-12) Nur Yasin: I bought this scam extension, I used it for messages only, no media, nothing and all I got was a stupid message : No chat is selected. Please select a chat to start the export. DO NOT BUY IT ! IT IS A SCAM !
  • (2022-03-04) Goudie: It seems very useful but only export about 22000 messages max : twice less than export function in Whatsapp, so it's not what I expected (especially when you have to pay 6$ to use it). I hope there is a solution?
  • (2022-02-02) Scribbot: I downloaded this after a long search for a way to export a long and old chat as a .txt file. I read a lot of good reviews and was hopeful. After buying the license I tried it on the first chat I wanted to export but it only exports the last 5.000 messages from the last 3/4 months :/ I don't know what I am doing wrong...
  • (2022-01-11) Lindsay Galandiuk: Thank you for making this extension. I was more than happy to pay to support the work you did so that I could recover some personally meaningful messages that were stuck on an old phone. I wanted you to have my gratitude. Everything worked perfectly!
  • (2022-01-10) Robbie de Groot: The fact it's not trusted by Enhanced Safe Browsing is a little worrying. However, after purchasing the license it worked exactly as advertised! It boggles my mind that a multi-billion-dollar company such as WhatsApp hasn't implemented a similar feature yet. Kudos to the developer.
  • (2022-01-03) Brais Lamela Gomez: Hi! I am clicking download but it does not start. I have already made the purchase of the license but it won't start when I clik download. It just says checking license status and then i don't get anything else. Could you help me with this? My phone was stolen and it's quite urgent for me to backup the web chats.
  • (2021-12-11) LOYER Alexandre: Cette application fonctionne. Les photos non supprimées sont sauvegardées ainsi que les messages vocaux. Il y a juste un bug : en export HTML, les messages vocaux sont exportés en OGG cependant, ils ne chargent pas quand on clique sur play. Je pense que cela vient du fait que le script les exporte en .OGG alors que whatsapp doit les traiter en .OPUS. C'est la seule application/extension qui m'a permis de facilement exporter et sauvegarder des conversations avec médias pour nettoyer mon téléphone.
  • (2021-11-22) Maggie Abbassi: I paid the money got the license key, activated the extension but when I hpress download nothing happens! I am using Edge
  • (2021-10-18) Victor Gabriel Leme da Silva: The idea is great, I've been looking for something like this for years. The only problem I've recognized so far is that it doesn't work in Beta version (multiple devices).
  • (2021-09-18) Michael Yong: This chrome extension requires a payment or subscription and it is NOT Free as stated with in app purchases. Please stop misleading people and wasting peoples time. Be honest!
  • (2021-08-12) Eduard Gil: Very useful. Looking for something like that for a couple of years, no rooting nor cryptokey needed You have just to trust the provider. I've paid gratefully for the extension I only miss emoji pictures instead of symbol chars and resize maps to less zoom congratulations to the developer! EDIT Excelent customer care. I missed the upgrade and I've received an instant e-mail reply with a new key Thanks a lot!
  • (2021-07-14) Inigo Flores: Some functionality may cease to work from time to time due to constant changes in the WhatsApp API. But the developer is quick to fix any bugs once you get in touch with him. The last API change that prevented images from being downloaded was fixed in less than 24 hours!
  • (2021-07-13) joaquin c: Por alguna razón funciona solo con algunos chats y con otros no.
  • (2021-07-12) Kamarul Arifin Muhamad: Hi, Fatty Noparents As i notice now ... current version on chrome is dated July 11, 2021 .. is this the latest version as u said or not yet the latest version ...? because my extensions is not working yet ... media is not downloaded into ZIP file.... Very much TQ in advance
  • (2021-07-10) Gonzalo rok: very useful! a good thing to add: it would be nice if you could tell the extension, for example: download messages from 2018-01 to 2018-12 but create different folders (with an html file and their attachments/media inside) for every month for example, so you don't have to manually download each month to keep them separate. Thanks!!
  • (2021-07-10) YA chrome: Hi, the plugin has been working great so far, not sure if it is related to some sort of update from Whatsapp, but now it is just stuck at "preparing to download". Could you please help, thanks!
  • (2021-06-19) Izham Abdullah: The chat texts download works for me. I tried various combination of dates and file formats, it didn't fail on me. However, the 'Try grabbing media', 'Try grabbing unresolved media (takes more time)', and 'Dark theme' box button is not active. It doesn't matter to me as I only wanted the texts. It would be great if you could figure out how to add 'Download All Chats'. It will save me a lot of time.
  • (2021-06-17) Dima Ryabchenko: нужна ваша помощь.приложение перестало работать
  • (2021-05-22) Katherine Lascota: I tried all settings and even after setting the date, it did not export the chat as I was expecting it to. It did not even export the chat for longer than 6 months! It's a waste of money.
  • (2021-05-19) Seiji Amasawa: This extension doesn't do anything unless you pay for it. Doesn't make that fact clear at all until you download it
  • (2021-05-04) Anastasia Lurye: It succeeded to back up only couple months (from Feb 2021 instead Dec 2019 that I needed) and when I'm trying earlier dates it just giving me empty file. I'm sorry it's far from what I expected and it's really no use for me. I want my money back.
  • (2021-04-26) Emile van Krieken: This is excellent! I have been looking for an easy way to properly download (all of) my Whatsapp chats. This method is slow (if you include images), but at least it works very well, is cheap ($5) and doesn't have that "I am a virus" feel that other methods have. The three exported file formats are very useful and can easily be converted into other formats. Thank you!
