I cannot log into my facebook account. Every time I try to log in, it takes me to a account verification process with this message: "Please review recent activity on your Facebook account Your account was recently accessed from a location we're not familiar with. For your protection, please review your recent activity to make sure no one is using your Facebook account without permission." And then there is a series of questions to which I do not know the answers or even remember answering them ever. Please help me.

Your account might be getting access by someone changing ip address of country location if possible change you account security information as well as password and also change email password which is associated with ur facebook account

Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones). click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Good luck!
Maybe if your press the "confirm button" a box will pop up- try that first. These kinds of problems are always crazy until you figure them out, and they are a pain. I was hacked on Facebook one time, and reset it all through email, try that next time, if they'll still let you do that.
Otherwise, keep working on it, you'll get it reset with a lot of perserverance.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

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.
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.
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.
As far as I am aware Facebook don't send the code to your friends. They are just making sure that the person requesting this is the authorised user of the account. After asking for who three of your friends as they sometimes write and ask for a description of and image you posted or something similar. These requests are done by a real person rather than being automated so it takes time. Also, we are in holiday season and they are probably running on skeleton staff.
Hi, when you tried to access your facebook account what response did you get? Try this: make sure your username and password are entered correctly. If you have indicated that the browser remembers your username and password earlier, you should clear the browser cache and try logging in again. If you changed your location or are browsing with a different ip address from the one you've been using, facebook might put up some verification process for you to complete to prove you are the owner of the account. This is done to limit account hacking. Once you complete the verification process which is usually not more than a minute you'll be granted access to your account. I hope this helps and pls don't forget to rate this:-)
FB normally donot response this type of queries. But you may check FAQ on facebook to get your problem solved. This type of issue normally occur when wrongly enterned credentials many more times and in your case you logged from other system. The reason for this verification from facebook that cookie in your home system recognize you when you loggedin FB but when you logged in from other system no verification is possible, b./c of no cookie. FB just ask for verification if you are one who is authorized to use your account. You can get security code from your email account which you have given to FB during registration.

Please try to remember your email address and your exact password with correct keys that are registered in your Face book. Also try to erase your Cache and your browsing history cause it also adds the factor especially if it is full then you cannot process another user verification especially using the online user verification processing if your cache and history browsing is full. So my suggestion please erase and empty your cache and history browsing and used the registered email address and password in your facebook account to be able to access your account.
