How to delete Facebook?

Have you decided to no longer use Facebook? For example, to protect your data or because you’re just spending too much time on it, time that could be used more effectively? You’re not alone. Since March 2018, when it appeared that data company Cambridge Analytica gained access to the private information of millions of Facebook users, the amount of Facebook cancellations has increased exponentially. But how do you do it, cancel your Facebook account, or in other words: delete it? In this article we explain how you can delete, or deactivate, your Facebook account.

Please note: Unfortunately, company websites are updated frequently and once in a while that is also the case for their cancellation policies. If you find the information below to be outdated, please contact us ([email protected]) and we will make sure to publish updated information on how to cancel this type of subscription. Thanks in advance!

How can I stop using Facebook?

30 day reflection period

After deleting your account, you have a 30-day reflection period. During this time you can cancel the deletion process of your Facebook account. If you choose to go through with the deletion and decide at a later time that you would like to use Facebook again, you’ll need to create a new Facebook account. Your original account and the data held within it will no longer be available.
