How Long Does a Facebook Account Stay Temporarily Blocked/Locked?

Facebook with lock on it


My Facebook account has been blocked temporarily. How long will my account stay blocked? Will my Facebook account be unblocked after a few days?


This block by Facebook is temporary and will last anywhere from a few hours to 24 hours to a few days. Your account was probably blocked because you didn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards.

Locked vs. Blocked

Your account can be locked if Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account – like a strange login or if you tried to login too many times. This is different than being blocked. You are able to recover your account and Facebook will help you with this. Just walk through the steps they give you when you try to login.

Some Things to Try if Your Account is Blocked…

  • Make sure there’s not a Facebook outage going on. Also consider it might be a glitch with Facebook. Try turning off your computer or phone and then turn it on again and try. See if that helps.
  • Also, if you’re on a phone, try using a computer or if you’re on a computer, try using Facebook on your phone. Some people have had success trying this.
  • See if you can reset your password.

Contact Facebook

If you’re still having problems, then fill out this form at Facebook to help get some assistance with your account:

Here’s a different form to fill out if you’re locked out of Facebook:

You will see a page like this:

Facebook: My Personal Account Was Disabled page

Go through the steps that Facebook gives you and you’ll get your account re-enabled and back in use again.

Make Sure You Don’t Get Blocked Again

If you’re using too many devices, logging in from too many places (without logging out) or are using proxy servers to get access (like around the company firewall), then all of that can start to look suspicious to Facebook. This can get your account locked or blocked, so be careful out there and keep this in mind.

    Ive been blocked 2 times this week after joining in 2006 or 7. They said im blocked for 1st saying ” go take a bath , retard” to an islamist extremist. The 2nd time for saying that paying a convicted terrorist 10 mil was f**ked up. Not cut his head off like so many others.
