There are four things listed here which can help you recover your hacked facebook account. I was inspired to write this after my friend’s facebook account got hacked, but later we recovered it through the methods listed below.
1.) If only password was changed; If only your password was changed in the hacking process, then this is an easy method of account recovery.
a.) This process is adopted when you still have access to your email account, you have to click on “forgot password” on the login page.
b.) You will be directed by facebook to another page where you’ll be asked to input your email, phone number or username, since you already gave access to your email account, input it.
c.) Next facebook will bring in your profile, click on it and enter either your phone number advisably your email account.
d.) Next a recovery code will be sent by facebook to either your email or phone number depending on which you gave.
e.) Final step is to set a new password for your facebook account and you are ready to facebook again.
2.) If no access to email; in a situation whereby the hacker changed only your email attached to your facebook account, this is what you should do to recover it.
a.) On your login page click “forgot password”.
b.) You’ll be asked to input your username, email or phone number to enable facebook search for your account.
c.) Identify your facebook profile, next is to click on your profile when asked to reset your password, click on “no longer have access to these” because you don’t have access to your email.
d.) If your facebook account is above 5years then security questions will be asked by facebook for you to answer correctly.
e.) But if your account is less than 5years facebook will use “trust contact” to enable you regain access. But you must have go get another email address and click on “reveal my trusted contact” and enter the name of anyone among them, then a link will be sent to them by facebook, ask them to click the link and send you the code, you have to input the code they sent to recover your account.
1.) Facebook Identity Verification (FIV); A new security system was launched by facebook in 2019, called, (FIV) facebook identity verification.
b.) Attach a government issued ID, and fill-out the form.
c.) Send the form to facebook and wait a few days for feedback.
