Facebook has been the subject of controversy for quite some time now. That’s not exactly a strange thing considering they have been under fire for their recent data breaches that continue to pile up against the CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
However, people who are wanting to continue on their protests and delete their Facebook accounts are facing some problems while trying to delete them. Basically, when users try to confirm their account’s deletion, the system tells them that the passwords they use are incorrect.
Users have reported entering the verified correct password over and over again without success. Ironically enough, it’s the exact same password they are using to log in just moments before going for the account deletion procedure.
This is something that was tried across multiple browsers as well. Heck, some users have even tried to get their accounts deleted across multiple operating systems to no avail. This is clearly something that’s hard to deal with at the current time.
A lot of people will probably know what I think of this without the need of me telling them. However, for those who are new here know that there really has to be some sort of inside job that doesn’t allow users to leave Facebook because they knew this was bound to happen.
I have managed to delete my Facebook account a few years ago without issue. This is one of the reasons why I believe that this is a recent problem and not so much an old one. However, there are complaints about this issue that go back several years.
An ex-Facebook user named Mark Rapacz, 36, who works in communications for the computer-science department of the University of Minnesota has found a workaround. If you want to delete your Facebook account but aren’t allowed by the system. You should change your password.
That’s right, a small password change can actually be the solution towards the roadblock a lot of users have been facing. As such, I encourage any users who are stuck at the password form to do this as well as deleting the browser’s cache data.
