It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button. Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.
My Facebook Let Me Log In

Facebook has become a daily or near-daily habit for many people all over the world:
People spend more than 700 billion minutes every month on the site, talking to friends, playing games and sharing information.

While signing up with Facebook is simple, sometimes accessing an existing account can prove to be problematic.

This can occur for a variety of reasons.
Incorrect Password
Facebook users who attempt to log into the site with an incorrect password will not be able to access their account until they go through the password recovery process.

Users can recover their Facebook password by clicking the "Forgot Your Password?" link underneath the password login field.

Users must enter their Facebook email address, linked mobile phone number, Facebook username, or their name and a friend's name.

Following information entry, users can click the "Search" button to identify their account and have the password reset to a new password of the user's choice
.
Incorrect or Forgotten Email
Facebook users who provide an incorrect email address will be unable to log into the site.
Since an email address must be entered exactly as it appears on the email account, including any capital or lowercase letters, numbers and special symbols, an incorrect email login may be as simple as an accidental lowercase letter or a forgotten underscore.

Facebook users should check their email address to ensure that no mistakes of this nature have occurred before login.

If a user has forgotten the email address used for their Facebook account, Facebook suggests the following options for email address recovery:

Try to log in with a username if one was registered, try to log in using a mobile phone number if one is linked to the account, try locating the account on the "Password Reset" page, or ask a Facebook friend to view the account and find the email address listed on the profile.

If none of these options work, Facebook suggests using any option on the "Recover Your Account" page.


Cache Or Cookies Problems Facebook users who are unable to log in may be having a cache or cookies problem.
To fix these type issues, users should clear the cache and cookies on the computer or mobile device, enter "m.facebook.com" as a URL rather than using previously established bookmarks or links, then log in as usual.
Account Disabled by Facebook
Facebook seeks to keep its site populated with real people, rather than fake profiles.
As Facebook states, "Since accounts that impersonate anyone or anything can damage the integrity of this environment, Facebook doesn't allow fake profiles for celebrities, pets, ideas or inanimate objects."

If your profile is deemed to be a potential fake profile, the account may be disabled by Facebook. When this occurs, the user will get a message upon attempted login that provides a link to the "Confirm Your Identity" page.

This page provides possible reasons that the account may have been disabled. In some cases, it is due to the user not confirming an identity via a phone number. http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=17007&ref_query=forgot
I can't log in.

Hi Diana, I'm wandering about statement of yours, i.e. don't you mean your Facebook App is locked on your device running Android Operating System (OS) or your mobile device running Android is locked, by Facebook App?. I'm thinking you mean Facebook App is locked, i.e. unable to run or log into? Need device make and model as well as Android version plus Facebook versions before I can make decisive conclusion. Best Wishes.

Log on with a computer and it'll ask you to confirm the device you're using. Then it'll ask you more security questions but that should fix it.
Hope this helps.

How to unblock facebook ? answer me please ?


This is the new security method adapted by facebook. It helps you to detect your usual log in ip address, whenever your account is being accessed by an unusual ip address, it would temporarily lock up your account as other individuals could be accessing your account from a different location.
The only way you can resolve this is to log on to facebook with a computer and attempt to log in.
it would tell you that you account has been temporarily locked and that if you would like to re-open it, you should follow the simple procedures that would come.
Follow these procedures and it would re-open your account if done correctly.
Hope this was useful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using fixya.

Claims I 'm useing a plug on my facebook page and have trouble chatting and sending messages as well as posting


If you're using Internet Explorer, then that is a pretty good reason as to why. Due to the structure of Internet Explorer, and it's BHO's "Browser helper objects" people can do pretty much anything they want on your computer through that crappy website viewer. My suggestion, go download Mozilla Firefox, and use it ONLY for the things you know are secure (banking, etc.) or User Google Chrome. I think Chrome's faster, but do still use Mozilla. As for how it happened, you probably downloaded a program that was made by some BS company or person who attached a resource to the program so that they could spam people. Even then, it might be something for spamming purposes, but an advertisement agent that was legit, and installed with a legit program. You never really know till you know everything, and that will never happen :)

I am having trouble getting into farmville. I get a blank page with an error message at bottom left had side saying "Done with errors on the page" has a small yellow sign next to it. How do I resolve?


Which Internet Browser are you using? Which Operating System are you using?

Try using a different Internet Browser such as Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and then check. The error might be due to missing Flash and/or Java on your computer.

When i try to log on to facebook it tells my before i even put my password in that the computer is done and with errors.


hi rachel...

you mean that the page is done but with errors?

this may be due to your java or flash not being enabled in your browser, or that the browser you're using doesn't respond to any errors there may be in the facebook script, however minor.

try using a different browser, firefox, for example, and be sure that you have facebook unblocked if you have any script protection on your browser.

let me know if you need more help with any of that.

:)
