Click submit, then wait two weeks for your account to be deactivated. Logging in to Facebook before the two weeks are up will void the deletion request, make sure once you request deletion you do not log in again.

If you are having problems deleting your Facebook account using normal procedure, email them at “privacy@facebook.com” and request that they erase your account. Facebook might keep some of your data on record after you erase the account but it won’t be made public.
