What happens when you delete your Facebook account?
Deleting your Facebook account is like killing a spider. It’s tough to do, but it’s necessary to get rid of all the data and connections that Facebook has created for you. Deleting your profile means that all the posts, photos, comments, and group memberships are permanently deleted. If you want to restore some or all of this information in the future, you’ll need to go through the process of re- Adding an Account and contacting Facebook support to help you retrieve your old data.
Once you delete your profile, all the posts, photos, comments, groups, and other content that was shared on your profile will be gone forever. Anyone who has access to your Facebook profile (like friends who have added you as a friend or family members who have seen your profile) will be able to see that you have deleted your profle.
How to use the delete account feature on Facebook
If you no longer want to use Facebook, you can delete your profile. This is particularly helpful if you are deleting your account because you no longer use Facebook and do not want anyone to be able to find or access your profile. To delete your profile, follow these steps:
- Log in to Facebook.com.
- At the top of the page, click on the gear icon (upper-right corner).
- On the left side of the screen, under “Settings,” click on “Account.”
- Under “Your Account Name,” click on the “Edit” button next to “Delete Account.”
- In the “Delete Account Info” box, enter your account password and click on the “OK” button.
Remember to backup your important information before deleting your account
Before deleting your
profile, make sure you have a backup of important information. This includes your profile picture and name, friends list, posts, and pages. Deleting your profile won’t delete any of this information. However, it will remove all public posts and messages from your timeline. You’ll also lose access to all the content you’ve shared with friends on Facebook.
Can people see when you delete your Facebook account?
Facebook doesn’t have an option that shows to other people when you delete your profile, if anyone is trying to find you on Facebook and they can’t find your profile there, they should assume it was deleted.
How long after you delete your Facebook account does everything disappear?
The deletion of your Facebook account removes all content, including posts and photos, from the site. After 30 days, any information that was shared with other Facebook users through connections to your account (such as friend requests and messages) will have been deleted.
After 1 month, any information that was shared with other Facebook users through connections to your profile(such as friend requests and messages) will have been deleted. However, any posts you’ve made that have been liked or commented on by others will still be visible on the site.
Don’t forget to delete your old account
If you forget to delete your old profile, it could be targeted by hackers. If your old account is still in use and has personal information (including your email address and password), someone who finds it could potentially access that information.
Malware attacks that target old profiles are on the rise, and if your account is still active it could be a target. If you no longer need access to your account, you should delete it so that it cannot be accessed by anyone else.
