My personal Facebook account is disabled

We disable Facebook accounts that might not follow the Facebook Terms.
Some examples of why your Facebook account might be disabled include:
  • Posting content that doesn't follow the Facebook Terms.
  • Using a fake name.
  • Impersonating someone.
  • Continuing behavior that's not allowed on Facebook and goes against our Community Standards.
  • Contacting other people for the purpose of harassment, advertising, promoting, or other conduct that's not allowed.
How to know if your account has been disabled
If your Facebook account has been disabled, you'll see a message saying your account is disabled when you try to log in. If you don't see a disabled message when you try to log in, you might be having a different login problem. Learn how to fix a log in problem.
What to do if you think your account was disabled by mistake
Accounts that do not follow our Community Standards or Terms of Service may be suspended. If your Facebook account has been suspended, you'll be informed about it in an email and when you access your account in an app or web browser. We will also let you know whether you can appeal the suspension if you believe we made a mistake. After logging in, follow the on-screen instructions to submit your appeal.
Keep in mind that in some cases we may not issue a warning before disabling your account. We also can't restore accounts that were disabled for severe violations. Learn more about how we define severe violations from the Facebook Community Standards.
