Help me recover my Facebook account. Got a new phone and it keeps wanting me to open another account. I just want my account that I use all the time. Please help me.




How do I recover my hacked Facebook account?
Facebook account hacks are unfortunately common. I'll look at the process Facebook takes you through to recovery a hacked Facebook account.
//
My Facebook account has been hacked! How do I get it back?
Unfortunately with the popularity of Facebook comes the popularity and frequency of Facebook accounts getting hacked or stolen.
I need to be clear from the start: I can't guarantee you'll get it back. Much depends on whether or not you set up recovery options before you lost it, and whether or not you kept those options up-to-date.
Let's walk through the process.

Recovery
Underneath the password field of the Facebook login is a link:
Facebook Can't Login Link
It may say "Can't log in", "Forgot your password?" or something similar. Click that.
You may then be asked to "Find Your Account":
Facebook Find Your Account
The best thing to enter here is the email address that you normally use to log in. If, for some reason, that doesn't locate your account, the hacker may have deleted the account or changed the email addresses associated with it. Try entering the phone number you previously associated with the account, or your full name as you previously entered into your Facebook profile.
Assuming you can identify your account successfully, you'll then be asked why you can't login:
Facebook Asking Why
Since we're talking about hacked accounts, select that and click on Continue.
The first option presented is simply a password reset link:
Facebook Reset Password Option
As you can see, that's the only option I have available with this account at this time. So I'll click Continue. (If you have additional email accounts associated with your Facebook account, the password reset link will be sent to all of them. If you have a mobile number associated with your account you may be given the option to use a text message instead. In both of these cases the additional account or mobile number must be set up before you need it, while you have access to your account.)
Facebook then presents this page:
Facebook Enter Code Page
and also sends a message to the listed email address:
Facebook Reset Password Code
After entering the code Facebook presents the option to select a new password:
Facebook New Password Entry Form
Enter the new password twice and click Continue.
You now have control of your account once again.
Secure
Since your account was hacked, Facebook will now take you through some extra steps to secure the account from future threats.
Facebook Secure Your Account
Do not skip this step! This will look at the common changes hackers make, help you recover, and help you prevent this from happening again.
First, Facebook will verify the email address(es) associated with your account:
Facebook Validating Email addresses
Make sure to check the email address(es) that are correct and to which you have access. Leave the others unchecked, and click Continue.
Facebook then reviews your email account password status:
Facebook Email Password
This is not your Facebook password. This message is asking if you are certain that you are the only person who knows the password to your email account. Anyone who can access your email by virtue of knowing your email account password can, in turn, access your Facebook account.
Once you are certain that your email account is secure, check the box and click Continue. If you are not certain, open another browser window and go change the password to your email account, and take whatever other steps are necessary to secure it first.
Facebook makes a couple of additional recommendations:
Facebook More Security
Login approvals use techniques such as SMS messages and automated voice to give you a confirmation code prior to letting you log in. You can bypass this on computers into which you log in frequently. A potential hacker would be unable to log in because they would not have the phone associated with your number.
A verified mobile number is a way to reset your password and recover the account should you lose access to your email account.
And finally Facebook suggests you review your recent activity to undo anything that the hacker might have done while having control of your account:
Facebook Activity Review Suggestion
Naturally I recommend you take a few minutes and do this now as well.
But what if...
The scenario above represents the best case scenario: you still have access to the email account associated with your Facebook account.
But what if you don't?
The sad truth is you may never get your Facebook account back.
If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your Facebook account
and you never set up additional email accounts associated with your Facebook account
and you never set up a mobile phone associated with your Facebook account
and you never set up Facebook's "Trusted Contacts" to help should your account be lost
AND your account is hacked or you lose your password...
THEN you cannot prove to Facebook that you have any right to access that account.
Facebook will not give it back to you, simply because they have no way to know that you're not just another hacker trying to steal the account.
As you proceed through the recovery process, make sure to read all instructions that Facebook gives you completely. On several of the items there's a "I don't have access to this any more" link that may take you to additional options that perhaps you can use. If you can't, however, you may be out of luck.

recovery by email:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183726
Recovery email address You don't have to provide a recovery email address, but we strongly encourage you to. Once you've started using Google as a signed-in user, we'll use your recovery email address to communicate with you under the following circumstances:
  • We need to confirm your username after you create an address
  • You can't sign in to Google
  • You've forgotten your password
  • You're about to run out of storage space
  • We need to alert you to any unusual activity involving your address
If you use Gmail, you may have added a recovery email address to your account when you first signed up. If you don't use Gmail, your password recovery address is the email address you used to sign up for your account (for example:myusername@yahoo.com)
To change or add a recovery address:
  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page.
  2. Scroll down to the "Signing in" box.
  3. Click Recovery email.
  4. Add your recovery email address.
  5. Click Done.
Your recovery address should be an email address that you use regularly.


recovery by phone:
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/183728

Having a mobile phone number on your account is one of the easiest and most reliable ways to help keep your account safe and ensure that you can get back into your account if your account is taken over or you forget your password. Your mobile phone is a more secure identification method than your recovery email address or a security question because, unlike the other two, you have physical possession of your mobile phone.
Hackers target accounts without phones because they're easier targets. Add a phone and join hundreds of millions of other Google users who have helped stop hackers in their tracks.

To add a recovery phone number to your account:

  1. Go to your Google Account Settings page
  2. In the Personal info section, click Phone.
  3. In the Recovery phone section, click to add a recovery phone number if you don't have one yet.

Ways we will use your mobile phone number

We'll only use your mobile phone number to ensure the security of your account. Here are some ways we'll use it:
  • To challenge people when they try to take ownership of your account
  • To send you a verification code so you can get into your account if you ever lose access
  • To provide an alternate way for you to verify that you own an account
  • To help prevent people from getting into your account by guessing the answer to your security question
  • Optional: To alert you to possible threats to your account's security (for example, when your password is changed)

Ways we won't use your mobile phone number

Unless you make a specific request, we won't use your mobile phone number for anything other than protecting your account. For example, unless you tell us to, we'll never:
  • Sell your phone number to other companies or organizations
  • Call you for marketing purposes
  • Publish your phone number online

What type of phone you should use

You should use a mobile phone number so that you always have access to it. It's important that you can receive security alerts as soon as possible so that you can help keep your account safe.

Hack a facebook account


Report Hackers to Facebook

According to the third article of the Safety section in Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, willfully compromising a user's account on the social networking constitutes a violation of Facebook's user agreement.

Reporting such violations may be performed in a number of ways, depending on the situation. If either you or your friend's Facebook account has been hacked, file a report through Facebook's Help Center.

If you are aware of a specific user on Facebook who is engaged in hacking other accounts, file a report regarding his activity through his profile page.

Go to Facebook.com, type the email and password associated with your account in the corresponding text fields and press "Enter."

Click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click "Security" in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click either of the two security questions, depending on your situation, and click "Secure it here."

Click "Secure Account" and click "Continue."

Complete each of the steps for securing your account, including changing your password, changing your email password, reviewing your changes and unlocking your account.

Click "Done" to complete the process.

The developers at Facebook receive a notification regarding your account being compromised.
Report Your Friend's Compromised Profile

Sign into Facebook, click "Account" in the top menu bar and select "Help Center."

Click the "Security" icon in the "Popular Topics" section.

Click "I Think My Friend's Account is Compromised" in the Account Security menu.

Click any of the three questions depending on your circumstances and click "File a Report."

Click your friend's full name, his birthday, the email associated with his account and a description of the situation in the corresponding text fields.

Click "Submit" to send the report to the developers at Facebook.

Report a Profile on Facebook

Log into Facebook, click the "Search" text field and type the name of the profile you want to report for hacking.

Scroll down and click "Report/Block This Person" in the left side bar.

Click "Unfriend" or "Block" depending on the situation and click "This Person is Bullying or Harassing Me," click the drop-down menu and select "Other."

Facebook does not offer an option in this drop-down menu that applies specifically to hacking, but selecting this option is the best fit for that form of violation.

Click the user's name at the top of the page, type a report regarding the account hacking in the text field and press "Enter."

The report is sent to the Facebook developers.
How to Hack
A hacker is a person who legally breaks into a computer system to identify the security flaws in that system.

Practice your skills on a project.

Rewrite the program with subtle changes.
You should be able to gain access to a file, program or data base that is protected while remaining oblivious to others working on this project.

Submit your resumes to companies that need hackers.
Some choices are large companies, banks and government agencies but this list is not all inclusive.

Hack into the computer system of the company you work for after it hires you.
Attempt to access records that are password protected.

Your account might have been hijacked ??..

Hotmail is one of the older free Web-based email services.
Unfortunately, its age and its popularity can make it a target for hackers and other online troublemakers.
If your Hotmail account is hijacked, the hacker may change your password to keep you from logging back in to the account.
Fortunately, Microsoft gives users the opportunity to prove that a hijacked account is really theirs so that changed passwords and stolen accounts can be recovered by their rightful owners.
Attempt to log in to your Hotmail account.
If you receive a message saying that your username or password is incorrect, click the "Forgot Your Password?" link under the password field.
A page will load giving you three options for resetting your password.
Click the "I Think Someone Else Is Using My Windows Live ID" option on the password reset page.
Click the "Reset Your Password" link in the instructions that appear.
Enter your Hotmail account address in the "Windows Live ID" field and type the characters that appear in the captcha image in the "Characters" field.
Click "Next" to continue the password reset process.
Select an option for resetting your password when prompted.
If you have a secondary email account included with your Hotmail account, clicking "Email Me a Reset Link" will send a link to that account which lets you reset your password.
Clicking "Security Question" prompts you with the security question you set up previously, allowing you to reset your password after answering correctly.
If neither of these options work for you, click "Customer Support" to contact Hotmail customer support and have your password reset.
Click "Next" after selecting an option.
Enter a new password when you receive access to the password reset screen.
Hotmail recommends that you create a strong password with a combination of letters, numbers, symbols and varying capitalization to make it more difficult for would-be hijackers to guess it.
Run a thorough antivirus and spyware search on your computer to make sure that you don't have a keylogger or other password-theft software installed on your PC
Such software could allow a hacker to gain access to your account again after the password has been reset.

Usually the computer site may have suffered a break down beyond repairs causing a redesign to susstitute the old one. If the previous system site ever repeared, would be made available. The cause for site alterations does not always have to be hackers. The computer servers may have been damaged beyond repairs or a new system resoruces were invented to replace the older one. Sometimes system administrators decide the older site is compromise and wire out the whole history to restart a new one. If a hacker attacked facebook, it would have been detected and reported.
