Instant Messaging History Browser is a completely free software through which you can view chat history and call details of supported networking platforms. You can scan your or other’s messaging history by following a couple of simple steps. The software provides all the call & chat details along with date and time. It also provides the name of the person and the messages exchanged.
The Instant Messaging History Software helps you to view chat history of supported Instant messaging clients that include Skype, ICQ7, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger. It is a very lightweight app that does not take any time at all to download. The interface is also quite simple and sober.
It is a very efficient but narrow software that performs its limited tasks efficiently. It is a narrow software because it only allows you to view chat history and call details. You cannot delete those details that ultimately might hamper your privacy. It also excludes many popular messaging platforms like Facebook, Twitter, etc. that are very popular. Another software that can be used to scan your chat history for Skype is SkyHistory.
Procedure To View Chat History and Call Details
As mentioned above, this software only allows you to view chat history and call details of supported instant messaging platforms. It performs that task with great efficiency. Once you run the software, start up wizard of the software appears. Then, you simply have to click on the scan button and the software will do the rest for you. It will collect all your messaging history in a matter of minutes, without any complications. As you press the scan button on the start up wizard, the main interface of the software opens up that provides you with all the history of messaging performed on that system.
The main interface of the software contains different tabs wherein you can view chat history for different instant messaging portals. It classifies all the collected data according to the platform it was performed on. This Division makes it easy to go through the entire chat history. You can also view chat history or details of a particular task performed by simply typing it in the search bar of the main interface.
Although, there are other free software that perform tasks of scanning & deleting browser history, this software stands out amongst them. This software scans the history of your all chat details and not your browser history.
This software, however, needs to incorporate some more features to protect user privacy according to me. Anyone can view chat history of other person in great details including time, person and duration in case of call history. From one perspective these features make it a very powerful software, but, at the same time these very features might prohibit users from using this software as it also curtails their privacy.
The Final Verdict
The final verdict for this software, according to me, would be that it is a decent software with a strong engine. However, some questions can be raised over the utility of this software, as it performs limited functions. It can become better with some more inclusions.
