Hence now users can wait up to one month for the account to permanently disappear, along with all the data.

  • Your Facebook posts & other data won’t be removed from your profile.
  • You might have deactivated your Facebook account, but you can still use Messenger.

If you delete your Facebook account:

Hence, you need to recover those apps on a personal level with the providers.

      Hi Arafat,

      Thanks for your comment!

      If your account is deactivated for more than 30 days, the chances are very thin to recover the account. However, you can always follow the steps below to see if it works for you:

      1. Go to Facebook.com
      2. Login to your account
      3. Click on Cancel Deletion

      Hope it works in your case!
