Suddenly you attempt to login to your Facebook profile.
Perhaps you have simply forgotten your password or worst case your Facebook account security has been compromised.
Having had this happen to me, I can help you reset your Facebook password and restore your peace of mind.
You will be back networking with your friends, family and coworkers in no time.
Go to your computer bring up the Facebook login screen like you normally would.
Do not fill in any information.
Click on the link above your Facebook user name and password that states forgot your password. This brings you to a different screen.
Fill in the email address associated or on file with your Facebook account.
If you cannot remember, keep trying different email addresses until you do.
Click enter and a Facebook reset link will be sent to your email so you can recover your password. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.
Check your spam email folder if the email does not appear in your inbox.
Click the link in your email and answer any security questions by Facebook.
This brings back to the Facebook website.
Reset your password with a phrase you will remember mixed in with 1 to 2 numbers or more. Record this in a notebook or on a safe place.
Use a different password than you would for your email.
This decreases your chances of having both websites compromised.
Change Your Google Password
Although its fame roots from its search engine, Google offers other services such as email, groups and alerts.
To access these features, you must create a Google account.
Your Google account can also be used at Blogger.com or to use Google's AdSense advertisement revenue program.
Generally, you must know your Google account password to change it.
The only exception to this is if you have previously changed your password recovery options through Google's "Manage Account" page.
Open the Google accounts homepage in your web browser (see Below).
Enter your user name and password into the appropriate fields on the right-hand side of the page.
Click the "Change password" link under the "Personal Settings." Enter your current password in the first field.
Enter your new password in the "New password" field. Make sure your password appears "Good" or "Strong" according to Google's password strength tool on the right-hand side of the window. You will not be allowed to change your password if the new password is considered weak.
Click the "Save" button to finalize your password change.
If You Do Not Know Your Password
Open the Google accounts homepage in your web browser (see Resources).
Click on the blue "Can't access your account?" link beneath the login fields.
Select the "I forgot my password" option on the next page.
Click on the blue "Reset your password now" link that appears underneath the initial options.
Enter your email address.
If you have a Gmail address, answer the security question to proceed.
If you have an email address through another service provider, open the password retrieval email sent by Google to continue.
Enter a new password into the "Password" field.
Confirm the password by reentering it in the appropriate field.
