You can recover photos from the camera roll, photo stream, and other apps, as well as address book contacts, voice memo recordings, notes, and many more files from your iOS backup file. Additionally, Decipher Backup Browser runs completely on your computer, so your data remains private.

Here at Decipher Media, we understand the importance of your data. We love Decipher Backup Browser not only as product, but also for the many opportunities it has provided us to help people restore or access important information. If you have any problems with Decipher Backup Browser, or just have questions about your iPhone data, please feel free to contact us. Before contacting us via the support email, we ask that you read our FAQ since many helpful answers are available here.

Snapchat Data Recovery

As Snap, Inc. makes updates to their app, the data that we can recover in Decipher Backup Browser changes. Currently, no sent "snap" photo data is typically available in Decipher Backup Browser because those photos are not saved to be part of the iTunes backup. Decipher Backup Browser can recover Snapchat text message metadata from backups of Snapchat versions before January 2017. The available metadata is information about messages sent and received, not the pictures themselves. As of January 2017 Snapchat versions, Decipher Backup Browser can only recover friends list metadata from Snapchat backed up information. All Snapchat recovery features in Decipher Backup Browser are fully available in the free trial, without a license code, since every recovery scenario is different and the available data is rapidly changing.

will I be able to find my deleted snapchat friends with this tool?

Decipher Media

Hi Amber,

Decipher Backup Browser will show you the Snapchat friends list data in a backup. If the backup was made after the friends were deleted, you likely won't see those deleted friends in DBB. You don't need a DBB license to see the full friends list data available - due to the nature of Snapchat data being hard to recover, all of what is available is in the free trial :)

They were a huge help. When I emailed with a specific question, they replied with the solution which took two seconds, fixed the problem I was having, and DIDN'T involve purchasing their app! That's great customer service. I almost wish I DID need the app so I could have supported these guys!
