Think about how long you have been on the platform. And how many things you’ve experienced and shared. Could you give up on them easily? We don’t think so!

And that’s your whole life on Facebook! After downloading your Facebook information, you can visit separate sections, like Photos and Places, or check your overall history.



Even if you don’t have an account anymore, you can still request your previous Facebook information by submitting a form.
