I have a quite long (several thousands of messages) chat history with one of my friends which I'd like to download and store safely on my own computer.
I did not bear this in mind from the beginning though and I therefore have no related browser plugins installed.
All of the messages are still available on Facebook - I am able to reach them all when I scroll for a while.
Is there a way to retroactively download the complete chat history?
Searching google did not provide any help.
Two options come to mind (both of them seem very laborious):
- copy&paste all the messages manually,
- write a script that would automate that (using e.g. Selenium).
