How do I delete the 4 Facebook accounts I no longer need?

John Gillis June 13, 2013

I have 5 Facebook accounts, but I only need one so how do I delete the other 4? I have forgotten the passwords for the other accounts…

    You could deactivate the other accounts however if you do not remember your passwords you have a couple of options. 1. You could reset the passwords by clicking on ' forgotten your password' and then you could deactivate the account, this would be time consuming though because you have so many. 2. you can post a status on your current facebook asking your friends to report the other accounts explaining that you no longer use them. You can also report them yourself, the more the better.

    You can deactivate your Facebook account as per:

    When you deactivate your account, your timeline and all information associated with it disappears from Facebook immediately. People on Facebook will not be able to search for you or view any of your information.

    There is no such thing as "deleting" an Internet account. As Chinmay Sarupria pointed out you can only "deactivate" an account. To actually delete any account anywhere on the Internet, you would have to delete ALL the data about it from ALL the backups in existence and that is impossible.

    You cannot delete it! You can just deactivate it (somewhere in settings)

    You cannot delete a Facebook account unless you are able to log in. So as Susendeep already said, you need to recover your passwords. I wrote an article on this topic:
    How To Recover Your Facebook Account When You Can No Longer Log In.

    Once you are able to log in, you can delete your account. We also have an article on that:
    How To Permanently Delete Your Facebook Account

    Good luck!

    Firstly,you would need to recover your 4 passwords of your 4 accounts which you can do it from the link below -

    then you can follow the deletion steps mentioned above.

    If you happened to save passwords on your browser when it asked to do so,then WebBrowserPassView utility would be helpful to view it directly without resetting it.

    You can delete your facebook account by clicking the gear icon. Then you click on Account settings. Once there, go to the security section, and then look for "Deactivate your account"., which should be the last link on the page. Click on it and then you must put an option as to what was the reason to deactivating your account. One of the options is that you have another account.

      Deactivating account doesn't means deleting account.

      One needs to sign in before doing that, which is not possible in this case. So this doesn't help.

      I found information in the Facebook Help Center. Here is the link:
