Why do I have to enter my email address and password every time I log into Facebook, even though I've had my account for years?

This could be because cookies are turned off in your browser. Cookies are snippets of information that a website saves on your computer and sends back to the site when you revisit it so that certain information is always available when you visit. Often, this includes information about how to log in. Someone else could be using the computer and have logged you out.

How can I delete my Facebook account?

Facebook lets you get your information ahead of time. This includes information from your timeline, posts, images, and more. Before you close your account, you should download your information.

  • To delete your account, go to the main Facebook page and look for the "Account" link in the upper right corner of the page.
  • Click Settings after choosing Privacy & settings.
  • In the column on the left, click Your Facebook information. Under Facebook's new Pages experience, if you have access to a Page: Click Privacy, then click Your Facebook info.
  • Choose Deactivation and deletion.
  • Click Continue after choosing Delete Account to delete the account.
  • After clicking "Delete Account," you will be prompted to enter your password before clicking "Continue."

Can I stop my account from being deleted?

If you deleted your account less than 30 days ago, you could change your mind. After 30 days, your account and all of your information will be erased, and you won't be able to get it back. It could take up to 90 days from the time you start the process to delete all of your posts. While Facebook is getting rid of this information, other Facebook users can no longer see it.
