How do I know if my Facebook account is deactivated or deleted?

Why my Facebook account is disabled?

Your account was disabled for going against the Facebook Terms. Your account must list your authentic name. Personal accounts must represent individual people only. It goes against our policies to use a personal profile to represent anything other than yourself (ex: celebrities, pets, ideas, objects, etc.).

Why does Facebook keep reactivating my account?

If you received a Facebook reactivation email and you didn’t request reactivation, it’s possible that someone attempted to log into your account using your email and password. If this happens, we recommend that you reset your password to help secure your account.

How long can a Facebook account stay deactivated?

Similarly, if you delete Facebook, your account will vanish. But full deletion won’t happen for a little while because the social network gives you 30 days’ leeway before the point of no return. If you log back in shortly after deactivating your account, it will be automatically reactivated.
