What happens when you deactivate Facebook

Deactivating your Facebook account will disable your profile and remove your name and picture from most things that you have shared on the platform. However, some information may still be visible to others, such as messages you've sent.

Here are some other things to keep in mind when you deactivate your Facebook account:

  1. Your profile, photos, posts, comments, and likes will be hidden from other Facebook users.
  2. You won't be able to use Facebook Messenger.
  3. Your Facebook login will no longer work on other websites and apps that use Facebook for authentication.
  4. Some information, such as messages you've sent to other users, may still be visible to them.
  5. You can reactivate your account at any time by logging in with your email and password.

It's worth noting that deactivating your Facebook account is not the same as deleting it. If you want to permanently delete your account, you can do so through Facebook's "Delete Your Account and Information" page. However, keep in mind that once you delete your account, you won't be able to reactivate it or retrieve any of the content or information you've shared on the platform.
