If your account was deactivated by Facebook, then you’ll need to submit an appeal to the company. Bear in mind that depending on the reason for the deactivation of your account, Facebook may never reinstate it. The only option, then, is to create a new account and forget the old.
- Go to the Facebook website at https://www.facebook.com/, enter your email address and password, and click Log In. If you see a message that says “Account disabled”, your account
is beingblocked by Facebook, which means you can send in an appeal.
- Open the “My Facebook account has been disabled” page. Go to https://www.facebook.com/help/www/103873106370583/. Do this on a computer.
- Click submit an appeal. This link is just right of the “If you think your account was disabled by mistake, please” text that’s near the bottom of the section. The appeal form will open. If this form opens a page that tells you to log out, close your browser and then re-open it. You may also need to clear your browser’s cookies before you can continue.
- Enter your email address or phone number. Type
the emailaddress or phone number that you use to log into Facebook into the “Login email address or mobile phone number” field near the top of the page. This needs to be an email address or phone number to which you currently have access.
- Enter your name. Type the name you use on your Facebook account into the “Your full name” field.
- Upload a picture of your ID. This can be a driver’s license, a learner’s permit, or a passport. To do so:
- Take a picture of your ID’s front and back and move it to your computer.
- Click Choose Files
- Select the pictures to upload.
- Click Open
- Add details for your appeal. In the “Additional info” field near the bottom of the page, enter any extra information that you think Facebook should know. Some things to include are:
- If your legal name is different than your Facebook name.
- If you suspect that your account was hacked by someone.
- If you have visual evidence that someone other than you is responsible for abusive or abrasive actions on your Facebook account.
- If you have been harassed by someone whom you suspect is behind your account’s behavior that led to it being disabled.
