How to backup Facebook data. The longer you use Facebook, the more data it accumulates - there are apps you've added, photos you've uploaded, places you've checked, not to mention the hundreds of status updates, and a list of all your friends.

Your Timeline contains your messages, photos, videos and other interactions. Your Activity Log, meanwhile, is a record of the things you've done (uploaded photos, friend requests accepted, changed cover photo), while messages and chats are stored in your inbox.



If you want to take a break from Facebook and / or, you probably don't want to miss all these things.

There is now an easy way to download your entire Facebook story so that you have an offline backup of your Facebook experience, and we show you how.

When I download my information from Facebook, what data is included in the file?

The file will include the following information:

  • Your profile information (such as contact information, interests you have indicated, groups you belong to)
  • Wall posts and content posted to your profile by you and your friends
  • The photos and videos you have uploaded to your account
  • Your friends list
  • The notes you created
  • The events you responded to
  • Your messages sent and received
  • Comments made by you and your friends on wall posts, photos and other content on your profile

Before you can access your data, you are asked to re-enter your Facebook password. Click 'Start My Archive' again to get started.


Download the Facebbok backup

Facebook sends you two emails: one to confirm that you have requested a copy of your data, and another to tell you that the download is ready.

This second email contains a link to your archive. Click on the link, then 'Download', and enter the password again.

That's it now you have a data copy of everything you've done on Facebook from profile creation to backup
