How to Download Google Plus Data Before its Shut Down

Step 1: Visit Google Takeout

It conveniently lets you download any of the data from your Google account that you want all from one location.



Step 2: Select Google Data You Wish to keep

To download data from Google+, first of all ‘Select None’, to unselect everything. Once done, scroll down to the list and make specific picks on what to download. Select the following options to download Google+ data.


  • +1s
  • Google+ Circles
  • Google+ Communities
  • Google+ Stream
  • Hangouts
  • Hangouts on Air
  • Profile

Step 3: Adjust Format for Downloadable data

For a few of those options, you’ll be able to select exactly how the data is stored. For example, Google+ Circles can be stored at vCard files which easily let you import them into contact applications. Alternatively, you can switch to an HTML file or as comma-separated values (CSV).


Step 4: Chose Where and how Your Data is stored

You can store your files as a .zip or .tgz file with the file sizes ranging from 1GB to 50GB. Google will compile the data in the background once the process starts and it can automatically be uploaded to cloud sources such as Google Drive or Dropbox.


Alternatively, a download link can be sent over email once the data is compiled and ready for download.

Do let us know if you encounter any challenges downloading your content from Google+.
