Here's how to download your Facebook archive

Here's how to download your Facebook archive”

CNN readers had a lot of questions about my experience.

So, how do you download the call history that Facebook may possibly have access to?

Near the top-left area of the screen, there's a downward-pointing triangle.

The vulnerability went viral last week when a Twitter user, Dylan McKay, tweeted about his findings after downloading a data archive from Facebook. I didn't see the option on mobile; only on desktop.

Facebook has weathered a barrage of lawsuits since the news that a British political data firm, Cambridge Analytica, improperly collected data of 50 million Americans and used it for political means, such as Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

When that's done, unzip the downloaded file.

Inside, the data is segmented.

Firstly, you should stop using Facebook Messenger as your default SMS app. Among those numbers was my late grandmother's landline. To do this tap your profile picture in Messenger to go to options. Then tap People and Sync Contacts.

"You NEED to have a backup plan".

I started by taking a look at the Contact Info section. Anyone should be able to view their invite history data by clicking here. However, I rarely follow any Final Fantasy pages or Hip Hop music or anything related to Fortnite on Facebook, yet they're all there. Why?

Why is Facebook logging calls and texts? .

Some longtime users may be shocked at the number of messages, videos, photos, and websites that are connected to them that Facebook has record of. Ars Technica reported the issue over the weekend.

For example, if you've been a Facebook user for more than a decade, it could take up to 10 minutes for the company to send you your data.

Facebook says it does not collect the content of the logged calls. "Your information is securely stored and we do not sell this information to third parties", the company wrote in the blog post.

Facebook knows a lot about you.

"Facebook has known for years that its advertising platform violates civil rights laws, but it has refused to change its ways on a voluntary basis", Diane L. Houk, one of the attorneys representing the housing groups, said in a statement.

The short answer is not necessarily. "If I can't manage this, who is supposed to?" she asked. Ever wondered how something you search on the internet ends up showing up on your Facebook in the form of an ad? Yes, Facebook started at Harvard University. In 2006, it became available to anyone with an email address. How much data am I sharing with the social media giant?

Facebook is also conducting an audit of all apps that had "access to large amounts of information" before the company instituted data restrictions in 2014.
