Can you Recover Deleted Facebook Account?

Recovering a deleted Facebook account along with all posts in 30 days is possible. But the process can be difficult and time-consuming. To recover your account:

  • You must sign in to Facebook, fill out a username and password, and provide other information to verify your identity. 
  • Facebook will send a user form on their website if an error appears. You will enter all details and send them back.
  • Facebook will then review your request, and if they find that your account was deleted by mistake, they will attempt to recover it for you.  However, if the account was deleted due to a policy violation, it may not be recoverable.

It’s also worth noting that deleted account recovery process might take some time, and there’s no guarantee that Facebook will be able to restore it.

Note: After 30 days, your Facebook account can’t be recovered, and neither any activity/post.
