How To Download a Copy of Your Facebook Data

Hey friends! Here’s how to download a copy of every single
thing Facebook knows about you. And trust me when I say – it’s a lot! So come on, let’s get after it. If you’re an android user, stick around
after the how-to because there’s even more important information you need to know. Alright to download a complete history of
the everything Facebook knows about you – your Facebook Archive – just head to,
it does not work through the mobile app. Now click the little down arrow in the top
right corner and head to the settings section of your Facebook page. At the bottom, under your account settings,
click the ‘download a copy’ of your facebook data. Now just click the green ‘start my archive’
option and enter your password. Once you’ve hit ‘submit’, click ‘start
my archive’ again. This will take some time to download and you’ll
be alerted via email once it’s complete. Click the link provided in your email, and
you guessed it, click ‘download archive’ again. And of course, you’ll need to enter your
password one more time for good measure. Click ‘submit’ and you’re archive will
begin to download as a zip file. If you’re considering deleting Facebook
over privacy concerns, you’re going to want to download this information. It includes everything you’ve ever shared
on the social network. We’re talking posts, photos, videos, messages,
chats, literally everything. Another section you can find your Facebook
data is your activity log. Using that same downward facing arrow in the
top right, select activity log. Here you’ll be able to view all of your
activity on Facebook since you created your account. Here’s the scary part. Android users, remember when I said you’ll
want to stick around for important information? Well, when you start digging around in your
downloaded copy of all the data Facebook has, you just might find metadata about your sms
messages and phone calls too. And guess what? You agreed to that in Facebook’s terms and
conditions. Facebook has been scraping Android call and
message data for years. If you’re interested in learning more about
this, I’ve linked to two really good articles below. Now I want to hear from you. What do you think about all the data Facebook
has acquired from you? Do you care? Let me know in the comments below. You can also hit that button right there to
