Capture Social Network Profile Information
Belkasoft Social Profile Saver captures information publicly available in Facebook,
Twitter, Vkontakte and Odnoklassniki profiles. This handy utility is designed for
computer forensic and security specialists who need to automate the downloading
of social network pages to their local computers to perform offline investigations
or present local copies of such pages as evidence. Many Belkasoft customers asked

What It Does
Belkasoft Social Profile Saver can do the following:
- Save publicly available photo albums (including comments
and descriptions). NOTE: Due to latest Facebook API changes you can only
download photo albums of public persons, your friends' and yours.
- Save the user's wall contents (text and images only, other
types of data might not be shown as in a social network timeline).
- Save personal messages for a logged in user. NOTE: You cannot
download other person private correspondence, only yours.
- Save Twitter tweets, followers and following.
The information is saved locally, with a clean HTML report generated. The HTML
report is self-containing, and can be printed and displayed without an Internet
connection. The report maintains the original links should you ever need to review
the original album page, photo page or wall post at a later time.
- Since the tool only downloads public information, it will not download anything
hidden by the user.
- Facebook photo albums of non-public persons can be downloaded only if these
albums belong to your friend or yourself.
- A valid social network login is required. A user can log in using their
own or purposely created Facebook/Twitter/Vk/Odnoklassniki accounts.
- Important: Do not run the software from CD/DVD or other
write-protected medium. The software should have write permissions to the folder
from which it is started.
Using a Social Network Login
Many users restrict access to their pages to other users of the same social network.
In this case, one needs to sign in to the correspondent network in order to download
the data. If Belkasoft Social Profile Saver encounters such a page, it will ask
for appropriate login credentials. Investigators can use their own (or purposely
created) accounts to log in. No login data will be passed to Belkasoft or
any third parties. The login credentials are submitted directly to the social network,
and to this social network only.
To ensure your login credentials remain safe, please review the following information:
- Belkasoft Social Profile Saver uses the native social network login applet.
We do not use any in-house forms.
- In your anti-virus and/or firewall, you may restrict Belkasoft Social Profile
Saver to allow it visiting Facebook/Twitter/Vk/Odnoklassniki-only pages without
- Finally, you can use any freeware or commercial tool to record exactly what
resources are requested by Belkasoft Social Profile Saver at any time.
Important: Make sure the software is signed by Belkasoft
OOO to avoid tampering.
Is it Legal?
Absolutely. Using Belkasoft Social Profile Saver is exactly as legal as doing the
same thing by manually opening a link in a Web browser.
Belkasoft Social Profile Saver works as a custom Web browser, and it can
only access publicly available information. This is what everyone can do by just
clicking a link in a Web browser.
The software only uses ways to access information that are explicitly approved
by the corresponding social network. In a word, Belkasoft Social Profile Saver simply
automates the work you can do manually otherwise.
