Facebook Download Your Information Tool

Facebook Download Your Information tool

The Download Your Information (“Downloaded Info”) tool on Facebook is a way to download a copy of your Facebook data including timeline info, posts, messages and photos shared on Facebook.

On June 21, 2013 Facebook’s Download Your Information tool became a controversial topic as Facebook reported that a bug may have inadvertently provided a person who used the Download Your Information tool with additional private information for Facebook friends including email addresses and telephone numbers.

Facebook Expanded Archive

In addition to Downloaded Info, Facebook also provides users with options to obtain an Expanded Archive, which is in addition to your downloaded info, and contains even more account information including logins and cookies.

Facebook Activity Log

An Activity Log is also available to download and it contains a history of all activity from posts commented on, posts liked, apps used and Facebook search details.
