Interesting things I have observed in my Facebook data:
I have observed a lot of things that Facebook collected from me, Like Messenger transcripts, Android Calls, Sms logs, Login information, Photos and videos metadata, and even all of my friends contact details which is not available in my phone now maybe I can recover all my lost contact details here.? just kidding.
How to protect your Data even from now:
We have listed some of the settings to follow to stop your data scandal.
1.Delete all your Facebook apps:
Facebook apps in the sense that when you installed a new app on your phone or PC to use that specific application it will ask for signup, at that particular time you may intentionally or accidentally you will tap on signup with facebook it means literally you are giving access to your facebook.
Now to delete that access to third-party applications you need to go to facebook and then profile settings you can observe the apps in the list Tap on that.There you can see all the apps that you have signup with facebook just remove the apps that you are not using.This helps up to some extent to protect your privacy.
The path could be something like this Facebook>Settings>Apps>Delete apps.
2.Remove all your Contacts:
To do that you need to go to Manage invites page which is available on your Facebook setting page and there you can observe the option all your contacts and an option to remove all your contacts tap on that and click ok
Now all your contacts are being deleted.
3.Check the Permissions:
Many people might have ignored while giving permissions to any app but it will be the biggest problem because if you gave the wrong permission the app can access your device without your further notice for example if you are giving permission to access the microphone it can record all your voice at any time.
So remove unnecessary permissions for all the apps.
You might have listened to the Facebook data scandal it’s not the fault of the social media its fault of our’s too because there is not that much need to use that app whole day. My suggestion is to stop using social media for unnecessary use.So by reading this article about Facebook Data How to Download and Protect It I am assuming that you have downloaded all your Facebook data and shocked about the results because I also shocked with it.
