How to Download Messenger Conversations on Mobile




If you want to download your Messenger conversations on your mobile device, you have two options: using the Facebook app or using the Messenger app. Both options will allow you to request a download of all your messages or messages within a specific date range. However, the download process may take some time depending on the size of your data and the speed of your internet connection. Here are the steps for each option:


Using the Facebook app




  • Open the Facebook app on your mobile device and tap on the menu icon (three horizontal lines) at the bottom right corner.



  • Scroll down and tap on Settings & Privacy, then tap on Settings.



  • Under Your Facebook Information, tap on Download Your Information.



  • On the next screen, you can select what type of information you want to download. To download only your messages, uncheck all the boxes except Messages. You can also choose the date range, format, and quality of your download. Tap on Create File when you are done.



  • You will see a message that says "Your file is being created". You will also receive an email from Facebook when your file is ready to download.



  • Once you receive the email, open it and tap on the download link. You may need to enter your Facebook password to access the file.
