How to delete your Facebook account in simple steps

Facebook is one of the largest social media platforms in the world, and while it can be a great place to connect with loved ones, friends, and family, it's also been facing a host of security and privacy issues lately.

If you no longer feel safe when there is a lot of your personal data on Facebook and you want to end the matter early, delete or close your Facebook account permanently, or maybe it is a deceased person's account or you have other problems and you want to delete the account. You should follow the following explanation.

We provide you with a quick step by step guide on how to delete your Facebook account through your phone Android or iPhone.

First - How to download a backup copy of your data and information on Facebook

Caution: Before you start deleting or closing your account on Facebook, you must first download a backup copy of your data before deleting your account from Facebook

Before you begin the process of deleting your account, you will first need to make sure that you have downloaded a backup copy of your data. This will allow you to keep a good record of your Facebook information.

This information goes away once you delete your account, so even if you don't think you need to keep it right now, it's still a good idea to save a backup anyway.

  • Open the Facebook app
  • Click on the three lines at the top right
  • Scroll down and tap Settings and privacy
  • Choose settings
  • Scroll down and tap Download Your Information.
  • Deselect any information that you do not want to save
  • Click create file at the bottom of the page

Once your copy is ready, Facebook will send you an email to let you know. From there, come back to this section of the app on the suggested date and you'll be able to download it and then use it as you see fit.

After downloading your account information, it's time to delete your account. Here is the explanation in detail.
