How To Deactivate Your Facebook Account

Have an important engagement like an exam or something else that is important ? And you want to kick the habit of frequenting Facebook?, for at least some time to concentrate on something that’s more important than Facebook? Then the perfect option for you would be to temporarily deactivate your Facebook account. You can also permanently delete your Facebook account if you have had enough of Facebook. Deactivating your Facebook account is not a big deal, it is very similar to logging out of your Facebook account. It will be reactivated the next time you log on to your Facebook account. So you should make sure that you don’t log on to your Facebook account accidentally.

Deactivate Your Facebook Account

So you have decided to stay out of Facebook for some time? Then let’s go through the steps required to deactivate your Facebook account:

Step 1: Click on the downward arrow that is present in the top-right part of your Facebook screen. Upon clicking the down arrow you can see a dropdown menu with the option “Account Settings”. Click on the option “Account Settings”

Step 2: In the next window, to the left side of the screen you can see a list as seen in the screenshot below:

Click on the “Security” option. Then click on the “Deactivate Your Account” which can be found at the bottom of your screen.

Step 3: Be careful in the next few steps! Facebook plays around with the feelings of human mind by telling that your so and so friends will miss you on Facebook. Be bold and confirm that you want to deactivate your Facebook account. Facebook may sometimes ask for the reason of your deactivation, then select some reason of your choice.

Step 4: Opt out of Facebook notification emails. Check the box “Email opt out”. This will prevent Facebook from sending notification emails to your email id, which is very important to keep your Facebook habits away for some time.

Step 5: Finally click the “Deactivate button” and you are all done with deactivating your Facebook account.
