If you are using any fake account and doing criminal activities, your account will also be blocked.

If anyone is promoting anything like sexual content or products or criminal products, which is against Facebook terms, it may cause anyone’s account deletion.

How to Unlock Permanently Locked Facebook:

Click YES to continue, and click on the Upload Photo ID option now; enter your email address/mobile number, your profile name, and your ID (in the file field) if prompted.

Click on Next
