Facebook hacking has become commonplace. Most hackers want your account, so when they hack it, they delete all your personal information including your photos and videos. Many people use Facebook as primary picture storage where they save their photos with the hope of accessing them even in the future.
Sadly, hackers show no mercy when they take control of your account. It is heartbreaking to see that your photo archives is deleted just like that. Can you recover such photos? What can you do? In this blogspot, I will teach you how to secure your photos so that in any event that you lose your account, you will still have your photos intact.
although I will talk about photos all through the post, what I will teach you also applies to videos and other documents.
Prepare in advance
If you must recover your photos if hackers delete them, you have to prepare in advance to do so. How? Simple. Backup. Now the question is, how do you backup your Facebook media?
How to do it
The illustrations here were done with Facebook lite
Go to your Facebook setting and scroll down to your Facebook information then select transfer a copy of your photos or videos
Under “request copy”, check the box beside photos and videos
Choose destination. Make sure the destination you’re choosing is secured and you know the password. I’m choosing Google photos
Choose whether you want to backup only photos, videos or both
Choose account. You will be prompted to supply your account password here for verification. Once done, you will have to grant Facebook permission to add photos to your account.
Your photos have been backed up
The photos, after the backup, could be viewed only on your phone’s Google photo app; it will not appear on your other galleries unless you download them. Remember too that the photos include all the pictures you have uploaded on Facebook since you created that particular account, except the ones you had deleted. So bear in mind that the operation will require considerable amount of data.
Now you have nothing to worry about anymore. In the event that you loose your Facebook and you create another one, all you have to do is upload them again from your Google photos app. Even if you lost your phone, once you get another one and sign in with your Google account, you have your photos.
