A few days ago, I have written an article to save and share ChatGPT conversations using a Chrome Extension. That is really good because it does the job of saving the chat history in a proper and well-formatted manner which you can download as an HTML file, and share with anyone via email.

This article is going to be a little similar, but in this, I am going to show you how you can export ChatGPT Data without using any extensions. And, yes, not by copying-pasting as well. 

What All are there in ChatGPT Data?

ChatGPT Data that you export will have these:

  • Chat Conversation history in HTML file
  • ChatGPT Account information is in Jason’s file.
  • Few Other Jason files which you may not need such as chat logs, etc.

The most needed data you get is the chat conversations which you can use to send to anyone when there is any need.

When you export the ChatGPT data, you get an email from them instantly with the Export file. You can click that, and you will get a zip file downloaded to your computer.

Now, you can extract the Zip file, and you will get the data that is exported.

Steps to Export or Download ChatGPT Data

Step 1: First of all, visit ChatGPT platform. You will see this:

Step 2:  Click “Log in” if you already have an account that I consider, you have.

Step 3: If you have signed up with a Google account, you can click “Continue with Google”  or if you have done with Microsoft account, you can click “Continue with Microsoft Account”. Or, if you have an email address and password, you can enter that to log in.

Step 4: Now, you will see all the logged-in Gmail accounts on your laptop. Choose the one you have used to sign up for ChatGPT.

Now, you can view each file by opening them. Moreover, mainly, you would be interested in opening Chat.html as it will have the chat conversation history saved. When you will open that, you will see all the questions and answers saved in that file with their thread names.

Now, you can send this HTML file to someone if you needed to. 

You may check other exported files as well if required.

So, this is the way, you can export and send ChatGPT chat conversations to anyone without using any plugin or extension.


ChatGPT is an awesome platform for getting your queries answered in a good manner. Exporting the chats and other data may be useful at times. So, knowing this would help you save your time because if you don’t know, you will keep copying and pasting the threads which will take a lot of time. But, with this Export data feature, the work will be done quickly.

Note: Sometimes, the export data may reach you late in your email. Most of the time, it reaches within a minute.
