What security measures are in place to make sure that someone else doesn't download a copy of my Facebook information?

We have a number of security measures in place to help make sure that you're the only one who can download a copy of your information:
  • Once your download is ready, we'll send an email to the primary email address listed on your Facebook account along with a link to your download. This link expires after a few days. If the link expires, you'll have to go through the download process again.
  • We require you to enter your password before you can download the file containing your information.
  • If you're using a public computer or one that you don't use regularly, you may also have to solve a security challenge.
Note: This file may contain private information. You should keep it secure and take precautions when storing or sending it, or uploading it to another service.
