How To Delete Facebook Ads Account

Facebook Ads is a powerful tool for businesses of all sizes to reach their target audience. However, there might come a time when you wish to delete your Facebook Ads account for various reasons. Whether you’re closing your business, pivoting your marketing strategy, or just want to start fresh with a new account, deleting a Facebook Ads account is a straightforward process.

Follow the steps provided in this guide to delete your Facebook Ads account:

Step 1: Log into Your Facebook Account

First, you need to log into the Facebook account associated with your Ad account. You can do this by visiting the Facebook homepage and entering your login credentials.

Step 2: Access the Ad Account Settings

Once you’re logged in, you will need to navigate to your Facebook Ads Manager. From here, go to ‘Ad Account Settings’ by clicking on the hamburger icon (three stacked lines) in the top left corner. From there, scroll down to ‘Ad Account Settings’ and click on it.

Step 3: Deactivating the Ad Account

In the Ad Account Settings, scroll down until you see the section labeled ‘Ad Account History’. Here, you’ll find an option to ‘Deactivate Ad Account’. Click on it.

A warning message will pop up, informing you that deactivating your account will stop all running ads and remove access for all users. If you’re sure you want to proceed, click on ‘Deactivate’.


Delete and Deactivate are not the same. Deactivating your account only stops your ads from running, but all your data and settings will remain intact. If you want to permanently delete your Facebook Ads account, you will have to contact Facebook’s support team and request a full deletion.


Deactivating your Facebook Ads account is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. However, remember that this action is irreversible and will affect all running ads and users. So, think carefully before making this decision. Should you decide to reactivate your account in the future, you can do so by contacting Facebook’s support team.
