Email hijacked Just got a couple of emails from friends on Facebook who received an email, supposedly from me, about some free Ipad scam. I've obviously been hijacked. Just on Facebook? What do I do now?

    The web page address for privacy settings wasn't in your email. Could you send it?

This is indeed unique to just Facebook. Facebook has a number of privacy settings that you can change to make it less likely that you will have your security compromised in the future.
Your first step would be to immediately change your password.
After that, I very strongly recommend using the following easy-to-use webpage to scan your privacy settings and change them using the on screen instructions to be as secure as possible.

Is an Email from Facebook a virus carrier?

Technically this isn\'t exactly a virus or scam or information phishing scheme, it sure seems like Search engine hijacker. Flip, Flipora, Filporamail and Infoaxe are all the same company. The service they apparently offer is to track your web browsing habits and suggest ads and search results and other websites based on what sites you visit. It is likevoluntarily signing up to have spyware or malware on your computer. The worst thing about this "service" is that when you sign up you directly give them access to your email address book and they use that information to send all of your friends, family and co-workers junk mail inviting them to also use Flip, Flipora, Fliporamail and Infoaxe. go through this Windows techbook article and you can get rid of this malware from your facebook.

Facebook has blocked access to my account don't know what to do.i received an e-mail from facebook asking for a proof of identity like a photo that i must this true?

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

STOP! Do not send anything yet. This may be a scam. Do not click on the link in your email!

Let's start from the beginning. When you attempt to log into your Facebook account - if your account is being blocked by Facebook - you will receive a notice that your account is being blocked. It is a very clear notice.

Facebook then requires you to go online and fill out one of two forms:

Click here for online form (if you violated the facebook terms and statement of rights and responsibilities)
Click here for other online form (if your account was blocked because of security reasons - phishing, hacking, scam, etc)...

If your Facebook account has been hacked, your password may have been changed. If so, the person(s) responsible could easily have sent you an email requesting that you send them a copy of your I.D.

You can determine if your password has been changed by 'Identifying Your Account'. Click here first to do that:
Identify My Account

If you cannot Identify your account, click here: HELP!

If you received a link in your email to provide Facebook with additional information, make sure that you are on a REAL Facebook page. In your browser's URL window, you'll see the Facebook icon.
You'll see vanherringto_0.png

Report this email request for ID to Facebook. If it's a scam, they'll email you and let you know:

send an email to:

I dont know how to confirm my email address

You can confirm your Facebook account in any of the following ways:
  • Follow the link in your sign up confirmation email.
  • Use the Friend Finder tool to see which of your email contacts have profiles on Facebook. To get to Friend Finder, simply roll over the Friends drop-down menu and click "Find Friends."
  • Follow the link in any email notification you receive from Facebook.
  • To confirm your account with your mobile phone, you must be able to receive Facebook's confirmation text on your mobile device. Enter your mobile phone number and we'll text you a special code to confirm that it's your phone. Start by going to the Mobile Texts page.
If you're still having trouble after the above steps, please click here.

How to register facebook acount

1. Go to

2. In the box where it says to ‘Sign up for a free account’, enter your name, email address, and password. Select whether you are male or female, and fill in your date of birth. You must use your full name here. This will not be shown on your profile. You must also enter your date of birth, so that FaceBook can ensure that you are over the age of 13.
3. Go to your email and open the confirmation email from Facebook. You must click the link in the email to confirm your account or you will not be able to activate your Facebok account.
4. Once you’ve clicked the link in the confirmation email, you are good to go. You can login to FaceBook, start setting up your profile and add friends to your list. There is a utility you can use to search your address book to see if any of your current friends are a member of Facebook.
