Facebook locked my account-will not take password

My facebook account will not take my password. I changed my password to facebook. Facebook will not take any password. Facebook locked my account, because my computer may not be secure. I had an expert check my computer, and my computer does not have a virus, but facebook continues to suggest that I use McAfee to scan my computer. The expert that built my computer checked it out with the three systems that he uses, and my computer is clean. My computer does not have a virus. Facebook will not take my password, but continues to lock my account for security reasons. Facebook will not change my password, and will not allow me access now for security reasons.

SOURCE: my account is temperily locked, so I cannot access

Hi

The issue that you are all reporting seems to be related to Facebook rather than to Chrome; have you tried accessing Facebook in other browsers? Are you experiencing similar issues with logging in? Please contact Facebook help.
I've attached a reference from the Facebook help center below about account access.

Why does my MacBook Air keep telling me that my facebook account is locked?


This may have more to do with your Facebook account than with your MacBook itself. Try signing into Facebook from another computer using your user name and password. If your account is OK, change your password. Go back to your macBook and log in with your news password. I have the problem with my Ipad sometimes. Often Facebook will send you a message apologizing for problems logging in. Try logging in from that message.

How do i change password on facebook when I'm locked out?


To protect your account, facebook locks your account for 24 hours.
After that, i would suggest going back into facebook, use your email address to reset passwords or send validation codes to your email address to reset password.
Again, wait 24 hours then try again. Its a security precaution step.

Forgot my yahoo.mail confirmation code to access my facebook account


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Fix Facebook If You Get Locked Out

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
