How To Delete A Facebook Ad Account

Would you like to delete an account in Business Manager because you no longer want to create ads or advertise on Facebook?

It may be that you have several accounts and want to delete one unused account to simplify things for you so that you can create ads without any clutter.

There is a limit of 25 ads per ad account in Business Manager. There are times, however, when you reach the limit and cannot create another ad account. It would be frustrating if you were unable to create more than 25 accounts.

Do you want Facebook to increase the ad account limit in the future? Tell me in the comment section.

In my opinion, no; it is clear enough; I like things to be very clear and not a headache. Instead, you can create an additional business account in Business Manager, and in that account you can create more than 25 advertising accounts, which is convenient.

Let me know what you think and why you're deleting your Facebook ads account in the comments.

Let's see how to delete an ad account and whether you can actually delete it?

Before I tell you that, you can do two things. The first is to delete the whole thing, and the second is to deactivate it.

By deleting the account, it will be permanently deleted, and you will not be able to back it up. Another option is to deactivate your ad account. Deactivating my account is more convenient for me.

To delete a specific ad account, there is no way; instead, you will have to delete your business manager account.

So if you're agreeing to delete your Business Manager account, then you can follow the steps below; if you're not, then

I would say that you should deactivate some ad accounts so that you could be able to recover your work if you're not interested in deleting the whole business manager account.

1. Go to

2. From the sidebar, you will get the “business info” option; click on it.
