Ugh! Warnings suck, just like warnings on Facebook accounts. Facebook sends these warnings to users who post content that violates Facebook’s Community Standards. You received this warning because Facebook deemed your post to be inappropriate.
Quick Answer: The account disclaimer does not come with any restrictions. But you will still see the word “Warning” in your account status. You can remove the account warning status from your account. Simply remove your violation or ask Facebook’s support team to revoke the account warning status.
There are several ways to remove the warning status from your account on Facebook. We are going to review these methods so that you never have to worry about this warning again.
Here is a detailed guide on account warning status, why users get warnings and how you can get rid of your account status warning.
What is an account disclaimer on Facebook?
Facebook issues a warning whenever an account holder violates community standards or behaves suspiciously.
- The first warning is an account warning. You will have an account warning status without any restrictions.
- Two warnings move the account to restricted account status. You will have a 24-hour restriction to create content or comment.
- Three violations result in a 72-hour restriction.
- Four fouls lead to a 7 day restriction.
- Five or more infractions result in a 30-day suspension.
- If a user ignores the warnings and restrictions, Facebook may delete or permanently disable that account.
How to check account warning status
- Go to Facebook on your PC or open the Facebook mobile app.
- Go to your Facebook profile. Click on your profile picture.
- Click on the three dots next to the “Edit profile” button.
- You will see options associated with your account, including an “Account Status” option.
If you have a warning about your account, you will see “Warning” next to the “Account Status” option.

How long does it take Facebook to resolve account warning status after a call?
It takes 24 hours to get a response from Facebook. Facebook will remove the warning status from the account if it accepts your appeal. If they reject the appeal, ask for a second review. You only have a short time to repeal. So keep appealing to remove the warning state. Once the appeal period expires, you will have to wait another 12 months to be cleared. Facebook warnings expire after one year.
Be careful when posting anything on Facebook. The rules are getting stricter. Don’t post content that goes against the Community Standards. Better yet, check Facebook’s Community Standards to avoid any warnings or restrictions.
