Want to know what Facebook knows about you?


1222 pages of information. That was what Max Schrems got after he found out how to get all the information Facebook had collected on him. 

Here is how to get the information Facebook has about You:

Send a mail to datarequests@fb.com with your name, correct birth date and the following text:

” I wish to make an access request under the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 for a copy of any information you keep about me, on computer or in manual form. I am making this request under section 4 of the Data Protection Acts.”

If Facebook does not answer you, send them repeated mails until they do. Max Schrems had to send 23 reminders and wait six weeks until they responded. According to law Facebook has a 40 days time limit to respond.

I wish You luck!

NB! The correct mail adress is datarequests@fb.com. I forgot the “s” after datarequest….
