This may come as a shock to you, but it’s true! You can deactivate or hide it from others and the world, but you cannot remove yourself from Facebook altogether. If you want to leave the social network permanently, then you’ll need to do so using one of these methods:

  • Deactivate your account. This will make sure that none of your information is visible on Facebook; however, if someone searches for any profile with your name or email address in it (like if they were looking for a job reference), then their search result would still show up even though their profile has been deactivated. There are no restrictions on who can see this information. So if someone wanted revenge against another person by finding out where they lived or worked through social media such as LinkedIn or Twitter instead of just searching Google Maps themselves directly without needing any login info whatsoever, this might not be enough protection against malicious intentions either way! But at least there would be some peace knowing that no one could see anything else besides what was already shared publicly before making such decisions.

You can deactivate your Facebook account and reactivate it later if you change your mind.

  • To deactivate your account: Go to “Settings” and select “Manage Account.” Click on “Deactivate Your Account” at the bottom of the page. Enter your password and then click “Deactivate.” The process takes about a week to complete, but if you change your mind before then, you must log back in with those same credentials (or create new ones) and reactivate within 30 days of deactivation by clicking here!

If you are over 18 years old and live in the US or Canada, you can permanently delete your account by visiting the Delete My Account page. You must have a valid email address to do this. This is because Facebook uses that email address to delete your account permanently.

You will also need access to an active mobile phone number associated with your account so that we can send a confirmation code via text message (SMS) to verify that you want to delete your Facebook profile – no one else should be able to use this code!
