If you have Facebook account, then this fact, that we are going to inform our visitors, will really interest you. It turns out, that Facebook copied call histories and text messages data you made in the past years from Android phones. The discovery was found out by a software developer Dylan McKay. He explained that when he requested for a Facebook archive, he found that the downloaded data had almost two years of call history from his Android phone, with metadata including contact names, phone numbers, and the length of calls made and received. It means that our best friend with whom we cannot imagine our lives better to say Facebook copied call histories and text messages from our phones.
A number of Facebook users have tried this experience. ArsTechnica is also shared by this own Facebook data. According to arstechnica.com they found call-long data for a certain Android device they used in 2015 and 2016, along with SMS and MMS message metadata. In response to an email inquiry by Ars about this data gathering, a Facebook spokesperson replied, “The most important part of apps and services that help you make connections is to make it easy to find the people you want to connect with. So, the first time you sign in on your phone to a messaging or social app, it’s a widely used practice to begin by uploading your phone contacts.” Certainly, the users are provided with the option to skip that step. “If at any point, you no longer wish to continuously upload this information, you can easily turn this feature off in your settings,” the blog post adds. “You can also to turn off continuous call and text history logging while keeping contact uploading enabled.”
So if you’d like to know if Facebook has been logging your calls and text, you can check your own data archive on Facebook. Just enter the settings and choose Download a copy of your Facebook data at the bottom of the General Account Settings section, and click Start My Archive. Let the downloading process complete. When it finishes the process you will receive an email from Facebook with a link to your download.
