Download Your Facebook Data (you will be shocked and surprised)

In light of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, where an app developer was able to sell your personal Facebook data to a research firm that helped Donald Trump win the election, Facebook has (and still is) taking some major league heat on this; and, rightfully so. As a result of this scandal, Facebook has vowed to become more transparent on how they use our personal information. Following the news on this, Facebook users became very concerned and wanted to know how to download their Facebook data.

With that out of the way, how do I download my data from Facebook?

The easiest way is to click the link below or enter the following web address in your browser:

Note: You can also get to the settings by clicking on the small “downward facing triangle or arrow”, at the top right corner, on any of your facebook pages (after you log in).

Then, simply click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data”… After which, the following will appear where you then click on “Start My Archive”.

After you click on “Start My Archive” you will be prompted to enter your Facebook password.

Once the password is accepted, you will receive a notice on the screen advising that an email will be sent to the email address you registered with Facebook with instructions to complete the download.

When you receive the email, you can click on a link (in the email) that will take you back to the “Download Archive” page, where you will once again click on the “Download Archive” button, enter your Facebook Password, at which point you will be prompted to save the download.

The downloaded data will be contained within a “zip” file. A zip file is one file that contains many files and you should be able to open the “zip file” by double clicking on it, to see the contents. If you fail to download the data within a few day, you will have to repeat this process. The file size for the data will be large and may take time, so be patient.

Once the data is downloaded, open the file and click on the file named “index” to navigate the downloaded data. You will be shocked and surprised at everything that has been collected.

Maybe, “Big Brother” is watching…

Gain Added Protection On Your PC with Immunet

Bill Mullins’ at Tech Thoughts, who was actually one of the people to get me started in blogging, recently posted an article about an exciting security product called Immunet 3.0, that I encourage you to read.


I’m not going to get into great detail about Immunet because I want you to read Bill’s article first; but, I will tell you this, I installed Immunet on all of my PC’s; AND what is so cool about this security application (that will help protect your PC) is that it is a “companion security product”.  What this means is that it is engineered to run alongside your other security products. For example, I am now using Immunet alongside Microsoft Security Essentials, which is my primary level of protection. From my initial testing I can’t even tell it is on my system due it uses miminal system resources. My gut is telling me that this is definitely a security product to consider.

If you want good insight on this security product (which is totally FREE), read Bill’s article about Immunet 3.0 [ HERE ] .

Is Your Webcam Spying on You?

Do you have a webcam looking back at you from your desktop or notebook computer?  Did you know it is possible from that very same camera that you could literally be spied upon?

I can remember back as early as 2004 where Sophos, a leading info tech security company, warned computer users about a backdoor worm trojan virus that was capable of of using webcams to spy on people in their home or workplace [ see here ] .

The W32/Rbot-GR worm (also known as the “Peeping Tom” worm) spreads via network shares, exploiting a number of Microsoft security vulnerabilities, installing a backdoor Trojan horse as it travels.

Today, I want to share with you a web clip (see excerpt below) referencing an article that Bill Mullins’ (at Tech Thoughts) posted about the dangers of webcams and how specially crafted software can reverse the tables from watching to being watched. Folks this is for real stuff and is espionage on a personal private level.

I encourage you to read the full article at Bill Mullin’s Weblog – Tech Thoughts [ HERE ] .  Just the title alone is enough to want you to read this article.

A “What’s On My PC…” Web Clip!

“Big Brother” isn’t the only one watching you. “Uncle Nasty”
is out there prowling the Internet too!

imageWidespread publicity, generated by the use of so-called “legitimate” spycam software in the ongoing “Pennsylvania High School Caught Filming Naked Teenage Students In Their Bedrooms”, class action lawsuit, and more recent reports from around the world of stealth webcam-activating malware being used to spy on young girls and boys, should be waving a bright red flag warning about the potential for webcam misuse. But, statistics show that most people pay little, or no, attention. [ READ MORE ]

Online Porn – Conservative States Biggest Users…

ABC News has published an article that indicates the people who are most outraged by pornography turn out to be consumers of the very things they claimed to be outraged by. A nationwide study, which was based on credit-card receipts from a major online adult entertainment provider, is indicating that the more conservative and religious states are reportedly topping out the numbers.

Irregardless of your stance or the validity of the study; my stance is avoid it at all costs. They call it an “entertainment industry”; it is an “addiction industry” that will destroy. Parents, watch your kids. This stuff is readily available (for FREE) at the click of a mouse.

From the tech side of all this… I do not know what a person pays to become a member of the porn community, but in addition to that cost expect to pay for some type of computer repair in addition to possible identity theft.  Porn sites are notorious breeding grounds (no pun intended) for malware, viruses, pop-up windows, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijacking, tracking cookies; and on and on!  Also, nothing is more embarrassing than when a tech sits down to repair your PC and finds that you have a dark side!

Porn in the USA: Conservatives Are Biggest Consumers

8 of Top 10 Porn-Consuming States Voted Republican in 2008 Presidential Election

Feb. 28, 2009

Americans may paint themselves in increasingly bright shades of red and blue, but new research finds one thing that varies little across the nation: the liking for online pornography.

States where a majority of residents agreed with the statement “I have old-fashioned values about family and marriage,” bought 3.6 more subscriptions per thousand people than states where a majority disagreed.

SendThisFile – A “FREE” method to send a large file…, a Wichita-based company that specializes in the secure transfer of large files, recently surpassed one million registered users.  I was recently pointed to this service by a computer tech friend who had sent a file to me that was too large for email. If you are in a pinch and need an easy way to send (or receive) a large file, this service looks like a good match. You can setup a “FREE” account or go for one of the paid accounts that provide more features.  Limitations of the “FREE” account is reflected in the clip below. The service is as easy as 1-2-3…

1 – Enter the recipient’s email address (and small message)

2- Select a file, and

3 – Click the SendThisFile button!

The recipient will receive the email with a link to a download location at Instructions are clearly given to the recipient on the process; which is very easy.

One thing I did during the testing was use an encryption program to encrypt the file I was sending, as an added measure of security and control on my part. I do not like sending anything into the cloud that could breach my privacy. I simply provided the recipient a password clue that he would only know.

Click on the logo or link below to preview this service further.
