We all know to create a Facebook account very quickly, but we do not know to delete Facebook account permanently. Sometimes we need to remove or deactivate our Facebook account permanently. So In this tutorial, I have mentioned some guide to deactivate and delete Facebook account permanently.
When the deleting process is completed, you have to provide two week grace period for cancel termination. If you log in to your account at this time, then it would activate again. For Delete your Facebook account, you need to avoid log in your Facebook account.
