Authorize NCapture

When you first use NCapture to collect data while signed into Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn—you will be prompted to Authorize NCapture.

This gives permission to NCapture to collect content that you have access to. For example, NCapture would be able to collect Facebook posts from any Group or Page wall that your Facebook account has access to. The content that you can capture from social media sites is subject to permission and privacy settings. If you do not have access to view private posts, you will not be able to capture them.

If you later decide to revoke authorization, you will be able to do this from the specific social media website. Refer to the Help within the social media website for more information.

You do not need to be signed into YouTube in order to capture content with NCapture.
