Part 1. How to Export Facebook Messenger on Mobile App [Android & iOS]

If you are using the Facebook messenger mobile app, the first idea you will have to export your messages will be to use some third-party app. Generally, these apps are not very reliable, and there could be safety/privacy issues, depending on the information in your chats.

So, a better method is to get screenshots and then print them or save them as PDFs. It is the simplest method that you can select, but it depends on the size of your conversation and can take a long time.

  1. Open the chat in the messenger application that you want to export.
  2. Take screenshots of the messages that you are looking to export (you can also take scrolling screenshots).
