How to unsubscribe from Facebook

Have you decided that no, Facebook is not really for you, and therefore you want to delete your profile? Great, you don't have to fear anything, since in the next few lines we will tell you everything about it. Your choice can be motivated by several reasons: you may simply have understood that you don't care about being social, or that Facebook is not the social network for you.

The fact is that you have decided to remove your account from the platform. Then take five minutes of free time and read the next paragraphs carefully. At the end of the article you will have a complete and exhaustive picture on how to unsubscribe from Facebook. Enjoy the reading!

First step: deletion of personal data

The first thing you need to do is delete yours personal data from your profile, so that no traces remain on Facebook. If you are acting as a computer, go to your profile page and click on "Edit profile" (button located on the cover image): a page will open where you will have to select the items in the left sidebar (such as "Work and education", "Contact and basic information") and click on the "Edit" item to delete all personal information.

Getting rid of information from the "Family and relationships" section is very simple: just click on the cross next to each name. As for the photo, even here things are easy: select each album in which there are photos, click on the gear wheel next to each of them and then on the item "Delete album”To delete everything. To delete them individually select their thumbnails, click on "Options" at the bottom and select the item "Delete this photo" from the menu that opens.

If, on the other hand, you are acting as a smartphone, start the Fb app and tap on your profile picture. Now press the "Update information" icon on the screen that opens and choose which information to delete. Do the same thing with photos: even in this case you can delete entire albums or images taken individually.

Definitive cancellation

Once all sensitive data is deleted, you have everything to be able to proceed with the definitive deletion from Facebook. First click on the arrow icon at the top right and then select "Settings" from the menu that appears. A page will open: here go to "Your information on Facebook" (left sidebar) and click on the "View" link under "Delete your account and your information".

At this point a page should open with the button "Delete my account“: Now you will see a box where you can see the cancellation procedure from Faceook. You will be asked to type the passwords you use to log in, while the security code displayed in the center of the screen you will need to enter in the "Enter text here" field. Click on "OK": you have completed all the operations!

At the end you should see a message with which Facebook warns you that your account has been deleted. The social network team will give you 14 days to retrace your steps: to do this you will have to cancel your cancellation request by logging back in to the social network.

If you're using a smartphone, the deletion process doesn't change much, but there are some minor differences. In the meantime, open the Facebook app, then follow the path > Settings and privacy> Settings> Delete your account and settings. Now type in your account password and press "Send". That's all, you have made the final cancellation!
