Scroll down to the bottom of the Settings page until you find the “Ad Account Deactivation” section. Click on the “Deactivate Ad Account” button to proceed.

Step 4: Confirm Deactivation

A pop-up window will appear, asking you to confirm if you want to deactivate your ad account. This is where I had a moment of hesitation, doubting my decision. But if you’re sure about deleting your Facebook ad account, go ahead and click on the “Deactivate” button.

Step 5: Review Your Account

After confirming the deactivation, you’ll be taken to a page where you can review your account. Take a moment to look at the summary and make sure everything looks right. This is your last chance to change your mind, so think it through!
