For most violations, if you continue to post content that goes against the Facebook Community Standards or Instagram Community Guidelines, despite repeated warnings and restrictions, Meta will disable your account.
After 5 strikes, you may receive additional 30-day restrictions from creating content, or we may remove your account, depending on the severity and frequency of the violations. In some cases, a violation may be severe enough that we’ll disable your account after one occurrence, as in the case of posting child sexual exploitation content.
We’ll also disable some accounts as soon as we become aware of them, such as those of dangerous individuals, convicted sex offenders, accounts created to get around our restrictions, and in instances where people misrepresent their identity.
If your Facebook or Instagram account has been disabled, you'll see a message saying your account is disabled when you try to log in. We also let you know whether you can request another review if you believe we made a mistake.
