Facebook Account Temporarily Unavailable

I have received this error a while ago, Facebook might be experiencing server overload or some unexpected errors. It should be back in a minute or two. All you can do now is wait patiently.

What to do? Nothing, might be a good time to do something else and if after sometime and you’re still getting Facebook Account Temporarily Unavailable, try using other browser or ask your friends if they can open their profile and if they do, try clearing your browsers cookies and cache.

  • Internet Explorer users: Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Delete… -> select only Cookies -> Delete
  • Mozilla Firefox users: Go to Tools -> Options -> Privacy tab -> Show cookies -> Scroll down and look for mediafire cookies folder and delete it
  • Google Chrome users: Click on the Customize button -> Option -> Under the hood -> Clear browsing history -> Make sure Delete Cookies and other site data is checked -> Click Clear browsing data

You might have received these similar errors:

  • Sorry, this profile is not available at the moment. Please try again shortly.
  • Account temporarily unavailableYour account is currently unavailable due to a site issue. We expect this to be resolved shortly. Please try again in a few minutes.
  • Facebook Account Temporarily Unavailable Your account is temporarily unavailable due to site maintenance. It should be available again within a few hours. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If your Facebook account is still unavailable after waiting for a day or so, you can send an email to info@facebook.com, appeals@facebook.com or disabled@facebook.com and explain to them the issue you’ve encounterd.
