One of the more common questions we get asked by our customers is how they can go about downloading the data that FlexiSPY has captured to their computers.
We do offer a solution for doing exactly this and we will explain further into the article, but first we’d like to reveal that we are working on a new system for downloading captured data which our customers should find more convenient (to stay updated on this we recommend that you follow us on one of our social media channels).
Now though, let’s look at how to download the captured data for backup purposes.
To download the captured data, you will first need to specify which data you want, there are two ways for doing this depending on the type of data you are trying to download.
Here are the text steps for downloading your data:
- Click the Data tab of your portal.
- Click the data tab for the data you want to download (SMS, MMS, IMs etc.)
- Click Search
Here you can set what you want to search for.
- In this record type
Choose the type of data you want to search within (e.g. SMS messages, IM messages, web sites visited etc.).
- In this direction
Choose whether the data is incoming or outgoing.
- For this keyword
Type in the keyword you want to search for.
- For date range
Choose the start and end date to search between.
Click Search when you have finished to search for your data, the results will then be listed.
You can then choose to export as csv or if you prefer, xls.
