How do I wipe my Facebook clean?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To wipe your Facebook clean, you can follow these steps:

1. Go to the “Settings” option: On Facebook, click on the downward-facing arrow located in the top-right corner of the screen. A drop-down menu will appear, and you should select “Settings” from the list.

2. Access your Facebook information: In the left-hand column of the Settings page, you will find a list of options. Look for and click on “Your Facebook Information.” This will take you to a new page where you can manage your data.

3. Deactivate or delete your account: On the “Your Facebook Information” page, you will see various options. Look for the “Deactivation and Deletion” section and choose it. Here, you will have the option to either deactivate or delete your account.

4. Select “Delete Account”: In the Deactivation and Deletion section, click on the “Delete Account” option. This will bring up a prompt asking you to confirm your decision.

5. Continue to Account Deletion: After selecting “Delete Account,” another prompt will appear. Here, you need to click on “Continue to Account Deletion” to proceed with the deletion process.

It’s important to note that deleting your Facebook account is a permanent action and cannot be undone. This means that all your photos, posts, messages, and other information will be permanently removed from Facebook’s servers.

Before deleting your account, consider downloading a copy of your Facebook data. This can be done by going to the “Your Facebook Information” page and selecting “Download Your Information.” This way, you can keep a backup of your data if you ever need it in the future.

Remember to carefully consider your decision before deleting your account, as it will also delete your Messenger conversations and app-related data tied to your Facebook account.

Wiping your Facebook clean involves deactivating or deleting your account through the settings menu. Just follow the steps outlined above, and your Facebook account will be wiped clean of your personal data.
