Download Facebook Account's Pictures and Data

OK. So you are an active Facebook user. Imagine, just imagine, some grieved enemy of yours reports your posts, and Facebook ends up deleting your account. How would you feel?


You need not worry. Facebook, the most popular social networking site, has a way to tackle this situation. It does so by allowing you to download all your account information at the click of a button.

The download is in the form of a zip file containing all your profile pictures, the photos you have been tagged in, wall posts and videos. Your messages, friend list, photos, events, likes (and almost everything you have ever uploaded on Facebook) is also included in the downloaded zip file. Upon unzipping the downloaded zip file, you will find a simple HTML file of your profile with offline links to the above stated things.

Downloading your account will not mean that Facebook will delete your profile. It will only serve as a backup and a leisure activity to give time to on Sundays.

Download Facebook Account Photo Videos

You can simply download your account by following the steps given below:-

  1. Login to Facebook.
  2. Click on your profile picture icon at the right side of the top navigation bar.
  3. Navigate to Settings and Privacy and click on Settings.
  4. Navigate to Your Personal information option.
  5. Click on Download a copy of your Facebook information option.
  6. Select the Media quality, type and time range for which you want to download the information of.
  7. Select the type of information that you want to download by selecting or deselecting each option. If you want to download everything, leave the default selections as it is.
  8. Navigate to the bottom of the page and click on Request a download to receive a link to download your information.
  9. Navigate to the top of the page and click on Available Files.
  10. Click on the Download button to download your data from the available files.

This link will only be available after Facebook has finished creating an archive of your account. Although this is a good feature, Facebook offers no way to re-import this information from your hard drive to your account or to a new account, if you wish to create a new Facebook account containing all your old data.
