Question about Facebook Computers & Internet

How do I delete an old FB account that is obsolete with old profile data? I do not have access to old email address or password used to establish this FB account.

Facebook does not maintain a online help service, which is crazy for a company their size and using this complicated software.

Here's what Facebook says about deleting it.

How do I permanently delete my account?
If you don't think you'll use Facebook again, you can request to have your account permanently deleted. Please keep in mind that you won't be able to reactivate your account or retrieve anything you've added. Before you do this, you may want to download a copy of your info from Facebook. Then, if you'd like your account permanently deleted with no option for recovery, log into your account and let us know.
When you delete your account, people won't be able to see it on Facebook. It may take up to 90 days to delete all of the things you've posted, like your photos, status updates or other data stored in backup systems. While we are deleting this information, it is inaccessible to other people using Facebook.
Some of the things you do on Facebook aren't stored in your account. For example, a friend may still have messages from you even after you delete your account. That information remains after you delete your account.

To get to this on Facebook, log-in, then go to your settings, at the top right corner, click on the little arrow for the drop down menu, then choose "Settings", click on "Support Dashboard" along the left side, click on "Help Center", scroll down (along the left side) to "manage your account", finally go to the Deactivating and deleting account link and click on the underlined phrase "let us know" at the end of the 1st paragraph and where you can actually click to have it deleted.

Is it possible to delete VERY old account on qeep mob without access to email or password? i want to remove my old profile pic form internet...


You will need your passwords to change any settings. I doubt they can help either as the account is setup on your old email address. Why not re start your old email address and email the company for a new password.

Please can you help me log back in to my fb account as it expired & now it doesn't recognise my old password my profile picture is me with blonde hair with a group of friends I'm wearing Trousers


Have You Tried the Default Account Recovery Options Yet? Whether you forgot your password or your username or whether someone managed to hack your account and changed your password, there are several ways to reclaim your account. First, you need to identify your account. For this step you can use your email address or your phone number or you provide your full name and the name of a friend.Click here to get to the recovery page shown in the screenshot below.

When you successfully managed to identify your account, you will be shown the reset password page (see screenshot below). Before you proceed to reset your password, carefully check whether this really is your account and whether the email address(es) and mobile phone number(s) listed are ones you can presently access.

If all is well, check the contact methods that apply, then click the Reset Passwordbutton and a password reset code will be sent to the respective email address or mobile phone number.

How do I get my old facebook account back?


For one thing, you do not open a Facebook profile for a business, you open a Facebook business page, if you insist on doing it, you should have used a different number and email address, that's Facebook 101.

I would suggest you log out of your new account, do a search for the old account, log into that one and change both the phone number and the email

Since Facebook only allows one profile per person, I would suggest you change both asap before FB randomly decides to eliminate one of the profiles

I loaded facebok on an old computer and never got all of facebook. Now I have a new pc and I can't log in at all. I would like to delete my old account and create a new one. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! ...


Your new computer shouldn't be causing a problem logging onto Facebook (FB). Can you specify what the problem is when you try accessing your FB account? If you've forgotten your FB password - which should be different to your email address password, then go via the link at the bottom of the window "Forgotten Your Password?" (in blue).

Just to let you know, downloading / originally registering on one computer does NOT stop you accessing FB from any other computer (the same as you can get your home emails on any computer in the world, that's connected to the internet).

When i was creating my fb and yahoo account because i switched towers, i typed two different e-mail addresses now they don't match, when i try to change on or the other it tells me that address already...


Changing towers shouldn't cause a problem with logging onto Facebook (you can access FB from any computer in the world, remember). All you need to do is try and log on with one email account, and password, if this doesn't work, go via the "Forgotten your password?" link at the bottom of the new window. it will ask you for an email to send the reminder to, or ask if you want it re-set, and send it to the email address you've just tried.

IF the problem, is that you've forgotten your email account password (that you registered on FB with), and can't access it when FB send the FB PASSWORD, you need to create a new account on FB. (THEN, find your old account, search for friends, and then let them know your page has moved to your new one!)...

Seems to be a common problem tonight.
