How to delete a Facebook account permanently


read at the link





There are two different ways to get your Facebook account offline.


The first is deactivating, which means:

You can reactivate your account whenever you want

People can’t see your Facebook Timeline, or search for you

Some information may remain visible (like messages you’ve sent)

Facebook saves your account info (like friends and interests) in case you reactivate


But deleting your account is a much more serious matter. If you delete your account:

Facebook delays deletion for a few days after the request is made. If you log in during the grace period, the deletion is cancelled

You can’t regain access to your Facebook account once it’s deleted

It can take up to 90 days for your data that’s stored in backup systems to be deleted. However, your info isn’t accessible on Facebook during this time

Some things aren’t stored in your account, like messages that you’ve sent to friends – these will remain active

Copies of some material (like log records) may remain in Facebook’s database, but are “disassociated from personal identifiers,†according to the company

Hundreds of millions of phone numbers linked to Facebook accounts have been found online.   The exposed server contained over 419 million records over several databases on users across geographies, including 133 million records on U.S.-based Facebook users, 18 million records of users in the U.K., and another with more than 50 million records on users in Vietnam.  But because the server wasn't protected with a password, anyone could find and access the database.  Each record contained a user's unique Facebook ID and the phone number listed on the account. A user's Facebook ID is typically a long, unique and public number associated with their account, which can be easily used to discern an account's username.
