After downloading it on your mobile device, authenticate using your Facebook account data (if you have already installed the standard Facebook app you should be automatically recognized) and follow the quick introduction that is offered to you.

Delete a page on Facebook temporarily
If instead of permanently deleting a page on Facebook you are only interested in hiding it from the public eye, I’m sorry to tell you but… from mobile it’s not possible. Or rather, it is not possible using the official Facebook app or the one dedicated to the management of fan pages but only and exclusively by connecting to the desktop version of the social network from the web browser on your smartphone or tablet.
If you are therefore interested in understanding what needs to be done to be able to delete a page on Facebook temporarily by acting from mobile connected to the browser that you usually use to surf the net from your smartphone or tablet (eg Safari or Chrome) then presses on button to access its options and enable viewing of Internet sites in desktop mode.
Then, go to the Facebook home and follow step-by-step the instructions I gave you a few lines above, when I explained how to “hibernate” a fanpage from your computer. The procedure is practically identical.
