You can deactivate your Facebook account without permanently deleting it. If you want to come back, your profile will be ready and waiting for you.
The Deactivate option is available under the Security category on your Facebook account settings when you access your profile from a desktop PC or laptop computer. On the other hand, in order to deactivate your Facebook account via mobile phone, you must access the Account Settings window of your profile from your phone, and you will find the Deactivate option under the General category.
Here is how you can deactivate your Facebook account using your Android smartphone:
- ■Turn your Android phone.
■Tap the Menu button to go to the apps list.
■Locate and tap the Facebook icon.
■To sign in to your Facebook account, provide the login credentials in the appropriate fields, and tap the Log-In button.

■On the Settings window, tap the General category.
