Facebook account locked when opened a new account with same email
My wife opened a new Facebook account and she used my email address which she has access to as her primary email. Now it won't let me get into my Facebook account even though she changed the associated email address. How can I get into my account again? I tried to reset the password hoping to get a response from Facebook but no success. Any help?

You can not have more than one facebook account. facebook doesn't allow that. I'm guessing you used one email address to create each account and the last one you created is the one that works. Well there is a way around this; get another email address for your husband. Use a different browser than the one you used to create your account. Have him create a facebook account with the new email address using the different browser. Then from then on you each use the browser you created your each accounts with. If you don't, eventually facebook will think you're the same person having two account and lock one of them down.
Your primary Facebook email address is the address you use
when you log in to your Facebook account.
Additional email addresses can be listed on your profile as
well if you chose.
Changing, adding or deleting email addresses on your
Facebook account is easy to do.
Log in to your Facebook account.
Select the "Account" menu in the upper right
corner of the screen and select "Account Settings" from the drop-down
Click on "General" from the list in the left panel
of the Account Settings page.
Click on "Email" in the main window to expand the
Click "Remove" next to any email address to delete
Click "Add another email" and type a new address
into the space provided.
Click the radio button next to any email address to
designate it as the primary Facebook email address.
Click "Save Changes."
Facebook sends a confirming email.
The change does not take place until you open the email and
confirm the change.
Somebody is trying to hack your FB account. Here's how you fix it:
Try changing your email address linked to your Facebook account. Go to Facebook, then to account, then to account settings change email to a new email address. Facebook will then send you a confirmation email to your new email address inbox, follow link to confirm. Then go back to Facebook and go back to account, account settings and change the email to the new email address ...don't forget to remove the old (hacked) email address at this point.
Hope it this works and help you.
Login to your facebook account using the current email address and password. Click "Account" on the top right corner of the page and select "Account Settings", the "My Account" page will open up, in the middle of the page, you'll see
Name .............................------ Username .......................-----
and so one, now look on the right side of the Email, you'll see "Change" in blue texts. Click it and enter your new email address in the space provided and click "Add New Email", another box will open up to enter your current password to verify that you are the real owner of the account. Enter the current facebook password and click "Confirm". You will receive a new mail from facebook on your new email address with a link to confirm. Open/login to your newly assigned email account and confirm. You are done, your new email address for your facebook has been changed.
Get another email address.
http://gmail.com ...is free and has 7Gb, so you can leave it alone for ages and it won't fill up with spam. Or, you could open an account and in the Settings --> Forwarding and POP/IMAP ...part, set it so that all emails from your new account are autometically sent on to the address you and your wife share.
If you do open an account; make sure you make a note of the email address and the password somewhere, as it's easy to lose passwords for accounts you don't use often.
Then, of course, you open your facebook with your new gmail account email address. Job done.
1) Create a new email for you wife.
2) Make sure that you sign out if you wife want to sign in. Go to facebook main page (http://www.facebook.com) instead the login page.
3) If the steps failed, the easiest way is to clear your private data on the browser.
There is a very simple solution to this problem. in your gmail account you should be able to invite her to use gmail and just have her create a gmail account all her own, instead of being on a sub account under you.
I have actually never heard of what you are describing before, and I have been a gmail user for years, well, matter of fact since it started.
If she uses her own separate email account, not a sub account of any kind, that will resolve the issues.
