Facebook | Account Disabled

For a number of reasons Facebook may shut down, disable or make temporarily unavailable an account. It could be because an account is suspect of inappropriate behavior like some sort of harassment, advertising, marketing, dating. All of these in access can get your account disabled. Things like harassment have zero tolerance on Facebook. That is what they say and it is quiet difficult to track but once tracked down an account will be disabled. 




If your account has been hacked or phished Facebook will shut it down there are appropriate channels to contact them and get it sorted out. Whatever the reason maybe accounts get disabled and you need to contact Facebook to get the issue resolved and sorted out. 




Find below detailed instructions from their help page




There are different reasons why you may not be able to access your account and unique ways to contact Facebook for each case. Therefore, it is important to be sure that you are using the correct channel when submitting a request for help. First, identify the correct reason why you are unable to access your account from the three reasons that are listed below. Then, follow the instructions listed by the reason that pertains to you.





Disabled for violating Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities
Facebook accounts that have been reported or detected for policy violations may be disabled by Facebook. Possible reasons include, but are not restricted to:



Continued prohibited behavior after receiving a warning or multiple warnings from Facebook


Unsolicited contact with others for the purpose of harassment, advertising, promoting, dating, or other inappropriate conduct


Use of a fake name


Impersonation of a person or entity, or other misrepresentation of identity


Posted content that violates Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (this includes any obscene, pornographic, or sexually explicit photos, as well as any photos that depict graphic violence. We also remove content, photo or written, that threatens, intimidates, harasses, or brings unwanted attention or embarrassment to an individual or group of people)



Please review Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities to learn more about specific types of conduct and content that are not permitted on the site.

Security disabled
Accounts that have been reported or detected as hacked or phished may be disabled by Facebook. If you think your account was disabled for security reasons, refer to the Security section of the HelpCenter to find the correct contact form.






Can't log in due to access issues
If you are disabled, you will clearly see a "Disabled" message when you try to log in to your account. If you do not see this message, then your account is not disabled and you are simply experiencing login issues. You should refer to the Login and Password section of the HelpCenter to find the correct contact form.

Examples of login issues include:



Inability to log in due to password problems


Inability to log in due to an error message (e.g., "Site Maintenance," "Invalid/Unregistered Email Address," etc.)


Inability to log in due to forgetting one's login email address or password


Other technical difficulties accessing Facebook

  1. Nice copy of Facebook's policy - however, how the heck does anyone know why an account was disabled?

  2. If nothing else works you would need to contact them directly explaining the issue.
