We study the simultaneous effect of the external magnetic field and finite chemical potential on deconfinement of heavy quarks, probed by the Polyakov loop and its fluctuations. We calculate the Polyakov loop, its real and imaginary susceptibilities, their ratio, as well as the heavy quark and anti-quark entropies. We find that these quantities are sensitive probes of deconfinement. Especially, the real Polyakov loop susceptibility and heavy quark and anti-quark entropies diverge at the critical point.
