You'll see this option in the top-left side of the page. It's the last option on the page. Click the "Deactivate your account" link. This option is just above the Close button.

Review the exit options. Before deactivating your account, you can check or uncheck the following options: Email opt out - Check this box to prevent Facebook from sending emails to you. Messenger - Deactivates Facebook Messenger as well. If you don't check this box, people will still be able to look you up and send you messages through Messenger.

Delete applications - If you're a Facebook developer and you have created applications, they will be listed on this page.

Checking this box removes them from your developer profile. It's the blue button at the bottom of the page. You may need to re-enter your password after this step.

Click Deactivate Now when prompted. Doing so will deactivate your Facebook account. If you want to re-activate it at any time, simply go to the Facebook login page, enter your email address and password, and click Log In.
