6. Follow prompts: Facebook may present additional prompts or options to encourage you to stay. Simply follow the on-screen instructions and confirm your decision to deactivate your account.
7. Confirm password and submit: To finalize the deactivation process, you may need to enter your Facebook password. After that, submit your request to deactivate the account.
