How to Know Your Account Has Been Disabled?

If your Facebook account has been disabled, you will receive a message on your login screen that your account has been disabled. If you don’t see a message, it is possible that you have been put into Facebook Jail.

Facebook disables the account depending on the severity of the violation you have committed. It may be temporarily or permanently disabled based on the situations as explained below.

Temporary Disabling

Temporary disabling happens when your account has been taken down for a short span and to recover the disabled Facebook account, just follows the instructions provided by Facebook.
