Facebook | 5 Steps to Recover and Secure a Compromised Account!

Facebook Recovering Account

The dependency on Facebook and its data has become a vital part of our day to day life.  Most of the people in this generation can not easily live without Facebook ( myself included ).  It has played and is still playing a quite significant role in our businesses and personal lives.

We heavily use Facebook for many reasons, whether we want to talk to family members. Reach out to friends abroad.  Or even run businesses from home.

Facebook has made it quite easy for most of us to communicate with friends and family. Run businesses and advertise for companies. This connection has significantly affected how hackers see Facebook as it has become a significant source of information for millions around the world.

Millions of people provide personal data on their profile. This exposure has affected our security in many different ways and hackers are just looking out to see what we offer ( as a clue ) to hack in.  And we can never avoid hacking and security can never be 100% guaranteed, but we can take the following steps to help keep our account safe and secure on Facebook.

In some cases, however, accounts can be hacked, and a person may find out one day that they can no longer access their profile.  Many reasons could be part of why this can happen, and the consequences can be catastrophic.  They may find people sending out emails, posting pictures, sharing videos, and many other things on their behalf and without their knowledge.  And in some cases, it can be very dangerous and risky to a person’s life and business.

If you found that one day you can no longer access your account, don’t panic and follow the steps below to regain control back to your account.

Step 1:  go to https://www.facebook.com/hacked  and click on “My Account is Compromised”

Step 2: type in your email address, phone number, username or your full name and Facebook will try and match your information with its database to find the associated account.

Step 3: if your account has been hacked most probably the email has been already changed, and you don’t want to notify the hacker that you’re trying to regain control of your account, so click on “No longer have access to these?”

Step 4: now you’re almost there. Write your new email address or phone number which Facebook will use to let you regain control back to your account.

Step 5: Follow the instructions and you shall regain control back within 24 hours.
