How to delete facebook account

By default, Facebook won’t delete your account, it’ll deactivate it, you may keep looking for ways to permanently delete it but, it won’t be easy pickings, as that is some sort of standard between all social networks. To begin this how to, let’s first tell you the difference between disabling and deleting your account.

Disabling your account is a temporary action. Your account can be restored at anytime you want, even while it’s not searchable on Facebook. it is possible though, that other users can still send and view earlier conversations that you and it had.

Deleting your facebook account is a definitive action, so once you’ve done this, your account will be lost forever, your friends won’t be able to look for you or watch your past messages or tag you in anything, however, this process takes 14 days to take action and it can take Facebook up to 90 days to delete your info from their database.

Still, Facebook warns that it is possible that copies of some materials remain in its database, although the possibility that the remnant is personal is really small. You must keep in mind that the messages that you sent to your friends are still visible because they are also stored in the receiver’s own database.
