Deleting your developer account will remove all of your apps. If you are the only Admin of an app, the app will be removed and all of its information will be lost. Reregistering as a Facebook developer will not restore removed apps.
Deleting your developer account does not affect any of your Facebook accounts, including Instagram, Messenger, or WhatsApp, or any of your Facebook Pages.
If you are the only owner of any apps, you will need to either remove them or transfer ownership before you can delete your developer account.
To delete your developer account, click the Delete Account button. A pop-up dialog will appear to confirm you want to delete your developer account; click Delete Account. You will then be asked to enter your password for security purposes. Entering your password and clicking Submit will delete your developer account.
