How to Download Your Entire Facebook History
Quote:[Image: facebook_download.jpg]

Whether you’re leaving Facebook for good or just curious about what data the social network has collected on you, you might want to download your Facebook data.

The option to download your Facebook data has existed since 2010, as Mark Zuckerberg made clear when he promised to fix Facebook after the Senate hearings of April 2018.

So let’s take a look at how to download your Facebook data, what’s included, and, perhaps most importantly, what’s not included.

All Facebook users are able to request the data download via their General Account Settings. It’s not possible to use Facebook’s mobile apps to do this. 

Instead you’ll need to login to the desktop website using a browser:

Open a new tab in your web browser and head to and login.
Click on the downward arrow in the top-right corner and choose Settings, or head to
At the bottom of the General tab click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data.“
Select what you would like to include, or leave everything selected (default) then click Create File.
Wait until your data is ready to download. You will receive a notification when it’s done.
Click on the notification, review the file size, then click Download.
Enter your account password to confirm your identity, then wait for the download to complete.
Your data will be delivered in a ZIP archive (how to extract files from a ZIP archive). The size of all my data was 178.5MB, which is about a decade’s worth of light use. This took around three minutes for Facebook to process and make available. If you’re a heavy user, expect to wait longer.
