Belkasoft has released Facebook Profile Saver, a free tool to capture information publicly available in Facebook profiles. This tiny tool is aimed at computer forensic and security specialists who need to automate the downloading of Facebook pages for offline analysis. A local copy of public Facebook pages may be required for investigation activities, and can be presented as court evidence. Performing this task manually would be extremely time-consuming, so we came up with a tool to automate the routine…
Making Facebook Data Available for Offline Analysis
Belkasoft Facebook Profile Saver can only do two things:
– Save publicly available photo albums (including comments and descriptions);
-Save the user’s wall contents (text and images only, but no videos or other stuff).
The information is saved locally, and an HTML report is generated. The HTML report is self-containing: it can be printed and displayed without an Internet connection. The report maintains the original links should you need to review the original album page, photo page or wall post at a later time.
Dealing with Restricted Pages
With many Facebook users restricting access to their pages to registered Facebook users, Belkasoft Facebook Profile Saver can automatically sign in to Facebook on your behalf using any valid credentials. Belkasoft Facebook Profile Saver will only ask for Facebook login credentials if a restricted page is encountered.
Belkasoft Facebook Profile Saver is absolutely free. Visit http://forensic.belkasoft.com/en/facebook_profile_saver to download.
