Transfer a copy of your Facebook photos and videos to Koofr: a shortcut

You can use Koofr's shortcut to transfer a copy of your Facebook media to cloud storage. It's a quick and simple way to save your memories to your own space. Follow our guide and transfer your photos and videos from Facebook to Koofr today!

Back in 2020, Koofr was one of the first cloud storage services to be supported by Facebook's data portability toolset. Since then, thousands of users have transferred their photos and videos from Facebook to their Koofr accounts.

Thanks to one of our recent updates, you can now use a shortcut in the Koofr web app to transfer your Facebook content to your cloud storage! As you may have noticed, we've added a Facebook icon to the left-hand sidebar menu in Koofr to make it even easier to transfer your data.

A shortcut to the Facebook data transfer tool has been added to Koofr's menu.

If you're concerned about privacy, then don't worry - we don't access your Facebook account or anything like that. We just provide a handy link that takes you directly to the data portability tool in Facebook's account settings, saving you a few clicks on the way. The only permissions you'll be granting is for Facebook to upload photos and videos to your Koofr account, and this is automatically revoked once the transfer is complete.

Follow the steps below to save a copy of your Facebook photos to your Koofr.
