Has Facebook accidentally deactivated your account for an alleged violation of the terms of use of the service? Well, in this case, to recover the blocked Facebook account and assert your reasons, you will need to fill in a specific form by which you declare that you have not engaged in any incorrect behavior towards other users and therefore that you have not violated the conditions of use of Facebook. I invite you to do what I am about to describe to you within 30 days of blocking the account, because after this period the account will be permanently disabled.

If your account has actually been blocked by mistake, visit this link (you can do it both from mobile and from computer), in order to connect to the Facebook support page that allows you to submit a request for analysis of the deactivation procedure of your account.

Then fill in the form that you see on the screen by typing in the field the access e-mail address or telephone number , the e-mail address or the telephone number at which you wish to be contacted and with which you have made the registration to the service; your name and surname as they are indicated in your Facebook account in the field Your name and surname and attach to your request the scan of your valid identity document by clicking on Choose file and selecting the file (possibly in JPEG format) from your device.

Finally, click on the Submit button to submit your request. As soon as possible, Facebook should give you an answer and, if it finds out that you are not guilty of any violation, it will promptly reactivate your account.

Note: Before you come to the conclusion that your account has actually been blocked, make sure that the login problems you are experiencing are not caused by a temporary platform error. To do this, check the status of the Facebook servers from this page . If there are no reported anomalies, try to log in after a few minutes, or a few hours. If you are unable to log into your account because it has actually been deactivated due to an alleged violation of the terms of use, you should be able to see a message informing you that the block has occurred.
