How do I delete my Facebook account faster than 30 days?

Answered by Cody Janus

Deleting your Facebook account can be done faster than the default 30-day deactivation period. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to delete your Facebook account permanently and immediately:

1. Go to the Facebook website or open the Facebook app on your device.
2. Navigate to the “Settings and Privacy” section. On the Facebook website, you can find it by clicking on the downward arrow icon in the top-right corner of the screen. On the app, you can access it through the menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the bottom right.
3. Within the “Settings and Privacy” section, click on “Settings.”
4. In the left-hand column of the “Settings” page, click on “Your Facebook Information.”
5. Under “Your Facebook Information,” you’ll find the option for “Deactivation and Deletion.” Click on it.

Now, you have two options: deactivating your account temporarily or deleting it permanently. If you want to delete your account permanently and immediately, follow these steps:

6. In the “Deactivation and Deletion” section, click on “Permanently Delete Account” at the bottom.
7. A pop-up window will appear, providing some information about the deletion process. Read through it and click on “Continue to Account Deletion.”
8. You may be asked to enter your password for security purposes. Enter your password in the provided field.
9. Complete any additional authentication steps, if prompted.

Once you’ve completed these steps, your Facebook account will be scheduled for deletion. Facebook may take some time to review and process your request, but it should be deleted within a few days. During this time, you won’t be able to access your account or retrieve any of the content or information you’ve shared on Facebook.

It’s worth noting that if you log in to your Facebook account within the next 30 days, your deletion request will be canceled, and your account will be reactivated. So, to ensure the permanent deletion of your account, avoid logging in during this period.

Deleting your Facebook account permanently and immediately allows you to cut ties with the platform without waiting for the standard 30-day deactivation period. Remember to download any important data from your account before deleting it, as you won’t be able to retrieve it once the deletion is complete.
