How do I find all the data Facebook has?

Facebook has been a huge part of our lives for the past 10 years. This is where we learn what people do, share our own stories, and stay in touch with friends. But how much do you know about your Facebook account? What kind of data is collected on us and who gets it? This post will cover everything you need to know about what Facebook knows about you - from old posts, photos, and videos to your location history.

If you are interested in downloading a few gigabytes or maybe a dozen or so gigabytes, go to the website:

There you will generate a file that contains all your Facebook data.

So what exactly is inside Facebook's data archive?

A lot! This includes posts, photos, videos sent or received, Messenger chat messages, and Instagram Direct Messages.

The Facebook data archive also includes your metadata (such as your date of birth), who did that day, geotags for photos, locations your friends visited, or pages you liked. You won't find such a detailed analysis anywhere else!
