#Method 2.

Use Browser extensions which save your chats so that you can recover deleted Facebook messages if you don’t use Archive Option.

For Firefox Browser:

There is an Add-on( FB Chat History Manager) for the FireFox Browser which you can use to save your chats, you don’t need to worry about your security. First, you need to create your I.D so that all your chat history will be saved in your account. You can use it online and offline too.

Once the login and see “You may now close this window and return to the application.” click “Close login window” on the bottom. Then the create account dialog should open. The chat history manager will save your chat message automatically and silently.

For Chrome Browser:

Sorry, there is no extension for chrome browser, there’s an extension called Facebook Chat Archive, but it isn’t supported anymore and several reviews say it no longer works.


At the end we prefer you to choose the first method because it is more secure than using any third party application or program, and if you want to just hide your chat,  use Archive Option, this will hide your chat and you can backup that chat in future too.
