What information does Facebook know about me?
They store a high amount of information from a profile. You can access this information from your activity log or downloaded data.
However, you will not find deleted information as it has been completely deleted from Facebook servers.
Facebook stores information from the following categories:
- About me
- Active sessions
- Ads clicked
- Credit cards
- Deleted friends
- Facial recognition data
- Hidden from news feed
- IP addresses
- Phone numbers
- Political views
- Privacy settings
How can I download my Facebook data?
Luckily, the social media site allows you to download the personal data from your account by accessing your profile and activity log.
However, you will not be able to access the information until a security check is completed.
