Facebook App Introduces New Access To Your Information

Over the years, Facebook developed tools to make it easier for people to view and download data on how they’ve used services. The platform first launched Access Your Information in 2018 so that people could have a central place to access their information on Facebook.

Now that we’ve had some time to learn about how people use it, we’ve reorganized and given it a new coat of paint, so that it’s even more usable and transparent. We want to make sure that your information on Facebook is useful, easy to understand and easy to find.

Facebook says on a statement.

So what’s new? Instead of two broad categories of data (Your Information and Information About You), the platform broken them out into eight categories:

  • Your Activity Across Facebook
  • Friends and Followers
  • Preferences
  • Personal Information
  • Logged Information
  • Ads Information
  • Apps and Websites Off of Facebook
  • Security and Login Information

Each of these categories breaks down further into subcategories, so it should be much easier to navigate to the data type you’re interested in.

The revamped Access Your Information is now available on iOS and Android, and will be available on other platforms soon.
