Moving your Facebook data to another computer or device is a relatively simple process.
You can use one of Facebook’s tools to get a temporary “Move” permission, or you can also use the app’s new Safe Share feature, which allows you to save your Facebook photos to a cloud service like Dropbox.
But while these tools may help you to stay safe online, they may not be enough to keep Facebook data safe.

Use your data wiselyIf you are moving your data to a new computer or mobile device, it is a good idea to review your existing data before you move.
This is especially important if you have deleted photos from your Facebook account.
Facebook can automatically remove deleted photos once it has verified that the photos are not connected to the account.2.
Consider backup and encryptionIf you have stored your data in a public place, it can be difficult to restore it if you lose access to your data.
You might want to consider encrypting your data if you plan to move it to a private location, like a data center or cloud storage.3.
Make backupsIf you keep your Facebook files on your computer, backup them on a hard drive before moving them to a server.
Make a backup of all your data on your desktop or mobile computer, and make a backup to your local computer and cloud storage accounts.4.
Protect your privacyIf you plan on moving your Facebook information to a service like iCloud, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Google Apps, make sure your privacy settings are up to date.
Privacy settings on these services can help you understand the types of information you are sharing with other users, how long your data is stored on the service, and whether the information is kept private.5.
Take steps to prevent your friends from seeing your Facebook postsIf you choose to move your Facebook to a mobile device or laptop, make a note of the location and name of the device you are transferring your Facebook info to, and ensure that you delete your photos and videos from your personal account.
If you want your friends to know you have moved your account to a different computer, make that note and keep the phone number and email address of the new person you are sending your account from.
