Did you know that even after you delete your Facebook account, some of your data may still be stored on the platform’s database? This includes your contact details, which could potentially be uploaded when someone else synchronizes their contacts. Clearly, this poses a significant threat to user privacy.

Fortunately, Facebook’s parent company, Meta, has developed a solution to address this issue. They have created a secret tool that allows users to delete their personal data, such as phone numbers and emails, from Facebook’s database.
