With the significant Facebook hacks this year, have you ever wished there was a way for you to see exactly what information Facebook has stored about you? Turns out, there is a way, but most people don’t know about it.
To pull a full report on all the information Facebook has about you, go to go to “Settings,” then “Your Facebook Information” on the left. Click on the second row which says “Download Your Information.” Lastly, click the blue “Create File” button. Don’t worry, if that was confusing, take a look at the screenshots below. Here is what it will include:
- Photos and videos
- Likes and Reaction
- Following and Followers
- Profile Information
- Payment history through Facebook
- Saved items
- Your places (A list of places you have created)
- Apps and websites (Apps and websites you log into using Facebook and apps you admin)
- Other activity (Such as pokes given and received)
- Ads topics that are most relevant to you, advertisers who have collected information directly from you, and information you have submitted to advertisers.
- Your entire Facebook search history
- Location history
- Calls and messages
- About you (info associated with your Facebook account)
- Security and login information (History of all logins, logouts, periods of time that you’ve been active on Facebook and the devices you use to access your account)
It can take days to complete depending on how much information it must pull. Not all of this information relates to a business page. For example, a business page cannot have friends so that category will not be included in the download.
Now you can have the peace of mind knowing exactly what Facebook has stored about you, and maybe relive some memories from the old photos and conversations you will find.
