How to check if Facebook has collected your call and text history

Facebook clarifies opt-in features for Lite and Messenger addressing recent concern

Ime Archibong, Vice President of partnerships at Facebook wrote,"We know these changes are not easy, but we believe these updates will help mitigate any breach of trust with the broader developer ecosystem". Okay. And the subsequent deletion of accounts by Elon Musk, Playboy, and other high-profile tech and media figures doesn't make one feel any better.

In the Facebook settings for your account - right below the link to deactivate it - there's an option to download a copy of all your Facebook data.

It can take a while to archive all the data, as Facebook includes all your posts, chats, photos and everything you've "Liked" during your time using the site. "You are always in control of the information you share with Facebook". Click that, then go through to the Facebook data page and select "Start my Archive".

And there you have it. Yeah, something like that.

Facebook also seems to think that I was in the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment in the U.S. Army (nope), that I watch a lot of Channel 4 (which is in the United Kingdom), and that I'm a big fan of Undercover Boss (which I've seen maybe twice).

One section that definitely is worth clicking no to: the ad settings where Facebook asks if it can create ads for you based on the websites and apps you visit.

Some Android users who reviewed their data noticed that Facebook had collected information about call history, including who they called and how long they spoke. "We want the court to order Facebook to develop a plan to remove any ability for advertisers to access Facebook's checklists for excluding groups of people in the posting of housing-related ads", said Diane L. Houk, a lawyer for of Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady. We also need to work to bring people closer together. In 2016, it was found that Facebook was offering an ad customization option called "Ethnic Affinities" that let advertisers target and exclude specific groups for ads. Apple locks down app permissions tightly, which offers more privacy protection to iPhone users, the Associated Press writes.

So this means that every time I enter a new number into my phone's database, it somehow ends up with Facebook - the company is in effect monitoring me. They say Facebook responded with specific lists of groups they were allowed to exclude, including families with children, moms with children of certain ages, women or men, and other categories based on sex or family status.

Facebook says that uploading your contacts is a normal part of signing up with many messaging or social apps - and insists that users are given a clear choice.
