If you download your personal archive later, you can see all the information you have given to Facebook, as well as all the chats with friends and acquaintances, events and preferences. The interests collected for advertising purposes are also listed. The files in the downloaded archive can be viewed with any browser (Edge, Chrome or Firefox).
How can I close my account?
If you prefer to continue digital life without Facebook, you can deactivate the account in the “Manage Account” settings. However, the account is not deleted but only shut down. All data, posts, and chats are retained on the Facebook servers. If you log in again after deactivation, you can continue using Facebook as usual. This option is, therefore, more useful for a self-imposed time out.
Facebook users can permanently delete their account only through a small detour. To do this, click on the question mark icon and tap “Delete Account” in the search field. In the following message, click on “Share it with us”. Anyone who follows this dialogue will apply to Facebook for the permanent cancellation of the account without the possibility of recovery. Until all data is deleted, according to Facebook can take up to 90 days. Some data remains, such as chat messages.
