What is Facebook spy?


It's a phishing scam. They want you to click on the link in the email and put in your personal information. It has nothing to do with Facebook at all (except for stealing your information). As long as you ignore and delete the email without clicking anything, you are safe.

Tip

Facebook account suspended, facebook account locked,


If your facebook account is suspended this is most likely due to facebook issuing you warnings that if certain behavior is not stopped then they will suspend your account. This can be because you sent to many friend request or your account was sending malicious information out. You might not have done this willingly, but instead your account was comprised.

In some cases once you log in to your facebook you will get a notice that your account was suspended and you will need to follow the on screen prompts in order to unlock it. This is usually a verification of your personal information like date of birth, name etc.

If you do not have this option you can email disabled@facebook.com. Include your email address that is registered on facebook in the subject line of the email. In the body of the email describe the problem you are having and they will respond back to you. This can take up to 5 days but the time varies.

Tips to prevent your account from being compromised

What is phishing? Phishing is a way of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy source.

-There are a lot of phishing attempts on facebook and other scams aimed at spreading viruses and stealing personal information. Be careful when you click links on facebook that take you to other pages requesting your personal information like facebook usernames and passwords. Also, be careful when using apps, some have been phishing attempts and will request your information and permission to access your account, then it will send out malicious links to attempt to get other people involved, spreading throughout facebook.

-Do not respond to emails claiming to be from facebook requesting personal information such as your username and password. These are obvious phishing attempts.

-Always keep your anti virus programs up to day. I would also you download and install MalwareBytes and AVG anti virus. They are both free to use security tools and I use them.

How to protect the security of my face book account?


  1. Never click suspicious links: It is possible that your friends could unwillingly send spam, viruses, or malware through Facebook if their accounts are infected. Do not click this material and do not run any ".exe" files on your computer without knowing what they are. Also, be sure to use the most current version of your browser as they contain important security warnings and protection features. Current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer warn you if you have navigated to a suspected phishing site, and we recommend that you upgrade your browser to the most current version. You can also find more information about phishing and how to avoid it athttp://www.antiphishing.org/consumer_recs.html andhttp://onguardonline.gov/phishing.html.

    Phishing is an online attempt to trick a user by pretending to be an official login page or an official email from an organization that you would have an account with, such as a bank or an email provider, in order to obtain a user’s login and account information. In the case of a phishing login page, the login page may look identical to the login page you would normally go to, but the website does not belong to the organization you have an account with (the URL web address of the website should reflect this). In the case of a phishing email, the email may look like an email you would get from the organization you have an account with and get emails from, but the link in the email that it directs you to takes you to the above phishing login page, rather than a legitimate login page for that organization.

    To prevent your account information from being obtained in a phishing scheme, only log in to legitimate pages of the websites you have an account with. For example, "www.facebook.example.com" is not a legitimate Facebook page on the "www.facebook.com" domain, but "www.facebook.com/example" is a legitimate Facebook page because it has the "facebook.com" domain. When in doubt, you can always just type in "facebook.com" into your browser to return to the legitimate Facebook site.

  2. Have a unique, strong password: From the Account Settings page, be sure to use a different password than you use for other sites or services, made up of a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. Do not use words found in the dictionary.

  3. Run anti-virus software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove harmful programs and keep your information secure.

I did not request password change


This is an attempt at Phishing. If you hover over the link on a computer or click the link on a phone you will see that the URL address is not legitimate. Also any password log in site always starts with httpS:// the last S is for secure and you will always see a lock icon in green. The scammer sites can't afford or obtain verified https sites.

YOU SHOULD NEVER CHANGE THE PASSWORD ON THE SITE THE LINK TAKES YOU TO. It records your account and your password and then they can go into your account and lock YOU out.

Don't click anything in the website, close it and delete the email.

Hi there, this may happen if somebody knows your email address and trying to use it to log in to your account. Even if the person wasn't able to go through your account, Facebook will still send you a message to reset your password for your own security. The next time you access your FB account, I would suggest you to change your email address.

I Tried to get into my fb and got a message that mine was temporarily suspended as a security precaution likely comprimised, i dont even know my pw anymore i am going to delete my account this is awful...


If you are unable to log in to your account and are receiving a warning that your account appears to be compromised, Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account and has temporarily suspended it as a security precaution. It is possible that your password was "phished," or stolen by a website designed to look like Facebook.You will be able to regain access to your account once you complete the automated security verification process. When you regain access to your account, please be sure to follow all of the suggested security precautions, including:
  1. Password Protection: You should select a unique and complex password for your account and keep this entirely to yourself. Be sure that you use a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. It should also be different from other passwords you use elsewhere on the internet.
  2. Private Browsing: Please make sure that you log out of your Facebook account and quit your browser when you're done using the site. This is especially important when using a public computer or someone else's mobile device. You should also never check the "Keep me logged in" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close your browser window.
  3. Secure Email: Since anyone who can read your email can probably also access your Facebook account, you should make sure that any email addresses associated with your account are secure. To ensure security, you should change the password for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same. By varying your passwords, you can greatly decrease your account's risk of being compromised in the future.
  4. Security Question: If you have not done so already, you should add a security question to your account from the Account Settings page. You should choose a question and answer that you will remember, and no one else should be able to answer the question that you choose.
  5. Log in at Facebook.com: Make sure that when you access the site, you always log in from a legitimate Facebook page with the facebook.com domain. Do not click any unfamiliar links and do not run any executable files (files ending in .exe) on your computer without knowing what they are. If something looks or feels suspicious, go directly to www.facebook.com to log in.
  6. Run Anti-Virus Software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove these harmful programs and keep your information secure.
