One person in Facebook always has one account and one profile, and he can have several pages. More precisely:

Each person registed on Facebook receives one account with a login and password for the entrance. Each account may comprise one personal profile and manage multiple pages.

On Facebook, the base is only an account with which the profile and pages are connected.

Delete Facebook Account Means Delete All: both account, and profile, and pages.

There are two ways to remove account.

  1. The first is temporary deactivation, that is, in the future you assume that the page will be restored.
  2. The second is complete deactivation or deletion forever.

How to deactivate Facebook

1) In order to temporarily deactivate Facebook (but at the same time not to delete it), go to your account. If there is your name in the upper blue strip, then you are "in place", that is, you are in your account (in fig. 1 shows my name - hope).

2) in the upper right corner, click on the small triangle (1 in Fig. 1):

Facebook Account Settings
Fig. 1 (Click on the drawing to increase it). We are looking for settings to temporarily deactivate Facebook

2) Click on the option "Settings" (2 in Fig. 1).

3) After this will open the "General Account Settings" window. We are interested in "common" settings (1 in Fig. 2).

Deactivate Account is a temporary measure. It is a pause to make a decision about

  • Or return to Facebook,
  • Or delete your account finally.

How to delete an account in Facebook forever

Before deleting an account forever, consider that you can not delete an account (personal profile) on Facebook, and translate your profile to the business page (professional page).

Go from Facebook Personal Profile for Professional Page:

If you firmly decided to remove your account (profile) on Facebook, then I propose to adhere to the following algorithm:

1) Go to your account.

I recommend first to go to "Settings", then in "Total Account Settings" and there at the very end of the page click on the blue link "Download a copy of your data on Facebook" (see below in Fig. 3). Then all this data will be removed from Facebook and you will not be able to restore them.

If you make a copy of your data, it will allow you to create an archive of everything you shared.

2) To remove Facebook, this link is:


If it is more convenient for you, then the actions can be changed in places - first go through the link, and after you enter your account. The Delete My Account window opens:

Remove Facebook Account
Fig. 6. Delete Facebook Account Forever

3) Click on the "Delete My Account" button.

4) You will be prompted to confirm the removal by re-entering your password, as well as Caps.

5) Then you must click the "OK" button.

Your account will be deleted without recovery, but not immediately. This will require 14 days. This period is time for thinking, during which you can still cancel the decision.

Full information about your account, which is displayed in search engines, will disappear after 90 days. Thus, there will be no trace from the page. In any case, before deleting an account on Facebook, thoroughly think about this step - you can lose the valuable data.

What to do if the password is lost

It is appropriate to delete an account in Facebook, if the password is forgotten and cannot be restored? Is it possible? The answer here is one - it is impossible. For deactivation, the password is required for deactivation - you see that other people's accounts would be blocked by different fraudsters. If you forgot your password, but you want to delete an account, then you will need to restore it first. You can do this in the following way:

1) Find on the top panel string to enter account (or e-mail to which an account was registered). We enter e-mail (1 in Fig. 6).

Forgot Password Facebook
Fig. 7. Actions in case you have forgotten password

2) Click on the link "Forgot your password?" (2 in Fig. 7).

3) The "Find Your Account" window will appear. We must re-enter your e-mail (3 in Fig. 7) and click on the "Search" button (4 in Fig. 7).

Facebook automatically identifies your account, will show you it and will suggest to confirm the accessory by email or by SMS-ke. For this, click "Next" (Fig. 8).

Restoration Password Facebook
Fig. 8. We restore the lost password

4) Then you instantly receive a letter to your email, where the necessary data for the recovery page will be displayed.

After access is returned, follow the instructions for the account deactivation or to complete the removal described above.

Delete account with phone

Unfortunately, with the help of a mobile phone, delete an account in Facebook will not be released forever - only deactivation is possible. But with her you can hide access to files and information. Therefore, if in a remote mode you will urgently need to delete the page, this method will suit:

  1. The Facebook application must be installed on your smartphone (telephone). If it is not yet, you need a preliminary installation.
  2. After installation, you need to go to the application, enter your username and password.
  3. The application goes to the menu - an icon consisting of three parallel strips located in the lower right corner.
  4. In the menu that appears, select "Settings", and then "Account Settings".
  5. Next, follow the Options "Security".
  6. There you will find a button with which you can deactivate the account.

If you later decide to deactivate your page forever, then you will need full access that can only be obtained through a computer.

Removal Profile, Account and Pages: General and Various

Often, the question "how to delete an account in Facebook" sounds incorrect, as a person who specifies it means, for example, a page. For correct formulation, it is necessary to distinguish with such concepts as profile, page and account:

  1. Profile. Minimum "Unit of Measurement" on Facebook. When registering, you get a profile that includes a brief, publicly available information. A personal profile is a person of a separate specific person and will not be able to be used for commercial purposes, for example, for a company or shop.

You can subscribe to your favorite profile, not adding friend in order to see the profile updates in the news feed in the future.

  1. Page. Page is usually created from the finished profile. It contains almost the same information as the profile, possesses similar external characteristics. But it differs in the way that includes additional tools that will be used to owners of companies and organizations.

Personal page on Facebook can be marked with the "Like" icon. Subsequently, updating this page will be displayed in the news feed.

  1. Account - This is a combination of login (e-mail) and password. Each Facebook has its own account, it can contain only one personal profile. At the same time, the user on one account can have several pages.

How to remove a page in Facebook forever

If you have an account, you can create several pages on this account (they are also called business pages). When deleting your account, all pages are deleted that are associated with this account.

In fig. 5 It is shown that when removing the account, my "Computer literacy with hope" will be removed simultaneously. But it happens that you need to delete the page, but at the same time leave your account.

1) Delete the page can only one who is its administrator.

2) Go to your page and click "Settings" (Fig. 9) in the upper right corner of your page.

Delete Facebook page
Fig. 9. How to delete a page

3) In the first section, "General" at the end there is a modest link "Delete page" (Fig. 9), click on it.

4) Next, you need to click on "Delete the page forever (the name of your page)" and do those steps to be offered.

If you do not see such links, you need to remember who exactly is the administrator of the page and where its account.
