If you get on your mobile phone, such as utilizing Facebook for iphone, similarly most likely to settings > Account settings > General > Manage Account > Deactivate.
Facebook does not take this lightly - it'll do whatever it can to maintain you about, consisting of psychological blackmail about how much your friends will certainly miss you.
Therefore, "Deactivation" is not the like leaving Facebook. Yes, your timeline will certainly vanish, you will not have accessibility to the site or your account by means of mobile apps, friends cannot post or contact you, and also you'll lose accessibility to all those third-party services that utilize (or require) Facebook for login.

Redact any type of details necessary to keep some personal privacy, such as medical account numbers, addresses, etc.
If a user has actually passed away, a legacy contact-- a Facebook good friend or relative that was assigned by the account owner prior to they died-- can obtain accessibility to that individual's timeline, once accepted by Facebook. The heritage get in touch with may have to give a connect to an obituary or various other paperwork such as a fatality certification. Facebook will "hallow" the page so the dead timeline survives (under control of the legacy get in touch with, who can not upload as you), or if chosen, remove it.
Mark a details tradition contact individual to manage your account after your death. You could locate that under settings > General > Manage Account > Your Legacy Contact.
