Have you had enough of all the intrusive ways Facebook is collecting data about everyone? And you simply want to delete your account?

Here is how you can do that.

  1. Back up your information you shared on Facebook
    Go to facebook.com/help and read how you can back up your information. Be aware: you will be shocked to see how much data Facebook is collecting of you, even when you are not on Facebook.
  2. Final step: delete your Facebook account
    Go to facebook.com/help/delete_account and free yourself! You still have two weeks to go back if you would change your mind. After that, Facebook promises to wipe all trace of you from its servers forever.
  3. Final words…
    Do you use your Facebook account to sign in to other platforms or apps? No worries, use the ‘I forgot my password’ function on that platform next time you want to sign in.
