How to Deactivate Your Facebook Account

If you aren’t quite ready to delete your Facebook account altogether but want to take a break from social media, you can deactivate your account.

Fire up the Facebook website on your computer, click on the downward-facing arrow in the top right corner of the screen, and then select “Settings” from the list.

Navigate to your Facebook Settings.

Next, from the pane on the left, click “Your Facebook Information” and then select “Deactivation and Deletion” from the list of options.

Click on "Deactivation and deletion" from the options below.

Select the button next to “Deactivate Account” and then click the “Continue to Account Deactivation” button to proceed.

Select "Deactivate account" and click "Continue to account deletion" when you're ready.

On the next page, you have to provide a reason for leaving Facebook. Choose from the list of options, give further explanation—if necessary—opt-out of future emails, and select whether to keep using Messenger. After filling out this form, click the “Deactivate” button.

Just like an exit interview, Facebook would like you to fill out a form as to why you are leaving. Here, you can choose to keep Messenger enabled and to opt-out of future emails.

One last warning will appear. Read the message and click “Deactivate Now” when you’re ready to continue.

Click "Deactivate now" after you've read the warning.

That’s it. Facebook will sign you out and will return you to the “Log into Facebook” page.

Your account has now been deactivated. Sign back in to reactivate it in the future.

When you’re ready to reactivate your account, all you have to do is log back into Facebook. Alternatively, you can reactivate it by using the Facebook Login feature on another app or website.
