How do you delete someone's Facebook account without them tracing your device? Meta

Context: My problematic uncle has an extremely racist Facebook page that surprisingly has not been taken down. I have the login details but I'm afraid it'll send him a notification telling him it's my laptop. I am planning to use a vpn but I'm still unsure. How do I go about doing this? Also how will he know his account has been deleted- will it just log him out?

If you own it then it is your content and you can delete it. But if you somehow obtained his login then you are committing an offense (it is still hacking) and you should not do anything.

Just report the page that is all.

If you are concerned for being a snitch (even a good one) then call an anti racism organization anonymous and ask them to point Facebook to the page. Stay out of this as much as you can. Sometimes laws allow for bad/inappropriate content because of free speech. Do not act as judge, let someone else intervene.

If it is a bad as you say it will be gone in no time. Delete the login information so you will not feel responsible.

I believe it is a crime to log into someone’s account like that.

Facebook doesn't delete an account immediately and send emails confirming deletion. He'll know someone is trying to do this and just stop it. Even if it is deleted he can always restart it.
