Export facebook messenger messages without root

Post Posted: Fri Apr 20, 2018 11:09 am

Hello,
Is there a way to somehow export messenger messages on a non rooted device ?

The messages are in the database file name thread_db2 in /data/data/com.facebook.orca/databases/contacts_db2 but in non rooted device there is no access to that.

Is there another possibillity to get acces to that file or save messages in another way ?

Cloud?

Even if you get root/physical access, not all the messages are saved on the device any more, lots get stored in the cloud. Only the most recent will be locally on the device. Try putting a phone in airplane mode and seeing how many messages you can access vs. how many you can read when it has a network connection (obviously don't test this on the user's/suspect's phone).

Thanks for your reply.

I know that only portion of messages are stored in the device.
Cloud is not the option. I shouldnt connect this to the Internet. This is the suspect's phone.
I cannot find the way to root it so I'm looking the way to somehow export existing messages.

You will miss crucial evidence.

You could see on a example how many messages have been on the device and how many of them i extracted from the cloud. If you dismiss cloud, you could miss some key information.

I need to somehow extract it.
