1. Log into your Facebook account on a desktop computer or mobile browser.

Keep in mind that you can't delete your account through the Facebook app itself.

2. Follow the link ahead.

This link will bring you directly to the Delete My Account page. Tap the "Delete My Account" option.

3. Reenter your password and enter the security check text.

After pressing OK, it can take up to 90 days to remove all of your posts, photos, and information. But after this, you're done and gone from Facebook!
