Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Searching for how to cancel your Facebook account? People decide to cancel their Facebook account for many different reasons. Some people just don't have the time, a family member passes, want to remove your childs account, or other various reasons. I have included some information below that will show you how to cancel your Facebook account also known as deactivating your account.

To get started, and make sure you fully understand what happends when you cancel your account, I'm going to cover these details. When you cancel your account your profile and all of the information contained will be removed and immediately inaccessible to anyone. Even though you have disappeared from the service your information will be saved by Facebook so that you can reactivate your account if you choose to.

Some people choose to just temporarily cancel their account and return later while other people just want to remove themselves from the service. Either way the option is available to you if you decide to return. If you decide to return at a later time you will be able to recover your account including your list of friends and photos. It will be available to you just as you left it.

To begin the cancellation process you will log in to your Facebook and open the account menu on the top right of the page. Then you will select the option "Account Settings". You will then see a screen where you must click on the link that says "deactivate". Once you select the deactive link you will then be directed to select the reason for deactivating from a list of options and then click the confirm button. A box will then open asking you for your password where you will enter your password and then click on the confirm button. You are almost done. Finally you will read a captcha text and enter it where indicated then click submit. You will then be directed back to the Facebook homepage confirming the cancellation/deactivation of your account.

These are the simple steps that you need to take in order to cancel your Facebook account, also referred to as deactivate. Just follow the step-by-step instructions above and you will be able to have your Facebook account cancelled instantly. I would also recommend opting out from receiving emails otherwise you will continue to receive requests, invites, etc. I hope this article was helpful in showing you how to cancel your account.
