Hey guys

So frickin annoyed that my data is being sold used, probably with my real name attached. I've had so many private conversations on there I'm feeling sick.

I've disabled my account but I want it permanently deleted. I don't like how I can log back in anytime. It means that my data is still available on a server there somewhere.

There's something like US $5 billion fine against them now. If my data has been sold, how can I delete it? I don't know who has it.

How do I permanently delete my Facebook account?

I felt Facebook to be too invasive. Their continuous requests for my personal information were bothersome and concerning. I simply didn't feel safe because of the data leaks.

I prefer to use Wickr because it's encrypted and deletes messages from their server after 7 days. Wickr has screenshot detection and doesn't force users to upload their phone's address book. They do not ask for your phone number, email address or other personal identifiers. It's refreshing.

It's true that deactivating an account is not the same as deleting an account.

Before deleting Facebook, I deleted practically everything from my account down to the name, photos, messages, tags, likes, status updates and changed my email address to a non-identifiable one. Activity log is useful for this. I then entered random information as a decoy and a different profile picture to confuse their facial recognition software. This is all in case there are further leaks...

This is the URL to permanently delete your Facebook account.

Scroll down to the section which says "How do I permanently delete my account?" and follow the steps.
