    You can download a copy of your Facebook data by going to Account Settings

    Then at the bottom of the list of settings you'll see "Download a Copy of your Facebook Data"

    Click on that and then select "Start My Archive"

    Depending on how long you've been on Facebook and and how active you are, this could take some time for it to gather everything and download.

    For obvious reasons, you want to keep that downloaded file secret.
