How to recover a deactivated Facebook profile

Is your problem different from the previous ones, because you have been mistakenly disabled from your Facebook profile by the company responsible for the social network? In this case the problem may be due to a violation of the terms of service of the social network.

This type of deactivation occurs in case of rare violations of these terms, such as the use of a false name to the detriment of another person's identity, due to harassment or, more generally, bad behavior within the social network.

If you believe that you have correctly complied with Facebook's rules and have not violated the terms of service, it is possible that your account has been deactivated by mistake.

To remedy this unfortunate situation, you can try to recover your Facebook account by logging into this web page. In the screenshot you will have to fill in some text fields to provide Facebook with the necessary information to recover your account.

Then enter your email address or phone number in the respective text fields, both of which are linked to your account. Next, enter your full name as indicated in your deactivated account and then upload the file related to the photocopy of your ID card by pressing the Choose File button.

Finally, using the More information text field, you will need to indicate some information that may be useful in recovering your Facebook account. For example, you could explain what you think happened and why you think there was a mistake in deactivating your Facebook account.

To confirm the submission of the request, click the Submit button at the bottom right of the page. You will now need to follow up with a response from Facebook, which will provide you with more information.

In case everything goes well, your account will be restored and you will be able to use it as if nothing happened.

Accessing Facebook without an account

The first method that will allow you to access Facebook without having to register is to go directly to the official website of the social network.

But before you start, note that, for convenience, I recommend that you perform all the procedures I have indicated in this tutorial from your computer. So, the first step is for you to go to the Facebook website through your desktop browser. However, note that you can also access Facebook without logging in through your Android and iOS mobile browser. To log in through your browser, you will need to use the desktop view feature. To activate this view, you will need to proceed according to your browser settings. To give an example, in Chrome you have to tap the button (...) on the top right and check the option Request desktop site.

The first thing you have to do is open the browser you use to go to the official Facebook page (you can do this by typing in the address bar and pressing enter on your keyboard). From the main screen of the social network, click first on the People section, which is located at the bottom of the page in small print.

On the next screen, you will have to pass Facebook's security check: type the captcha code you see on the screen in the text field provided and press the Enter key on your keyboard.

With this Facebook tool, you will be able to browse the entire Facebook database and you will find the complete list of people registered on Facebook in alphabetical order. If you want to search for someone on Facebook, I suggest you type their first and last name in the search engine located in the magnifying glass symbol on the top right.

Once you have searched for a person on Facebook, you will be shown a list of possible names that match the person you are looking for. You can click on the name that matches the person to view some of their public profile information. You will only have access to brief personal information. You will not be able to see the person's public profile posts, published photos and videos, or their friends list.

To view other public information about a person, you will need to register with the social network and possibly also send a friend request to the person in question.

You can do something similar by going to the public section of Facebook, which does not require registration, to see updates posted by Facebook pages, as well as to see what's going on with celebrities and places.

To do this, go back to the Facebook home page as I explained at the beginning of this tutorial and, if you only want to see Facebook pages, click on Pages (located at the bottom of the page with a small print).

Again, you will be presented with the complete list of Facebook pages in alphabetical order. To find your way around this extensive list, I recommend that you use the search engine text field located at the top right. Type in the name of the Facebook page you want to see and find the one you were thinking of among the search results that appear. In this particular case, as Facebook pages are completely public, you can view all their contents even without registering on the social network.

From the Facebook home page, there are other small entries (always located at the bottom of the screen) that refer to other public content that you can view. For example, if you click on Places, Groups, Recipes, Sports or Games, you can respectively see some places that have been registered on Facebook, the names of the groups on Facebook (although the groups are public to see the publications you must be registered), recipes, sports and games on Facebook, being able in the latter case to consult only public information such as the votes made by users. I would also like to note the presence of the Look entry, which will allow you to view certain public posts related to a keyword or a topic of discussion.

As far as possible, to search for content of interest to you, I recommend that you use the search engine, if it is present on the screen.
