Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is

At we are an unofficial, informational website about free and paid social media backup tools. We don’t provide a download service ourselves, but have done our research on the services out there and aim to pass on our findings to you.

Are download tools anonymous?

Most tools do claim to provide anonymous downloads, but always do your own research. It is also a good idea to make sure of your privacy by using a VPN Service Provider when accessing social media backup services.

How do these type of services work?

You usually enter in your own username into the search bar and then the tool accesses the platform’s API to provide download links to your content. These tools should provide a link to backup your content that is hosted via the official platform in question and not post the content to their own websites.

Do I need to enter my password?

Just entering your publicly available username should be enough for the backup links to be provided for your content. It is probably not a good idea to share your full login credentials to any social media account with 3rd party websites.

Are social media backup/download tools free?

At our research has found both free and paid services. The free tools monetize their service by displaying ads. The premium tools remove the ads for a small fee and provide more features. You can also remove the most intrusive browser ads by using a VPN Service Provider.
