Facebook log in password reset Just below the log in password entry field on Facebook's sign in page is a link:

How do you remember your - facebook_forgot.png Click on that and you'll be taken to a page containing something like this:

facebook_trouble.png The first step is to enter the distorted words presented in the CAPTCHA - this is used to prevent automated hacking attempts by "proving" that you're human.
Then, enter the email address you use to log in to Facebook, or your mobile phone number as registered in your Facebook account, and press Continue. Facebook will then ask for final confirmation:

facebook_confirm.png After pressing Reset my password Facebook presents the next step in the process:
And sure enough, in email you should find, after a short time, email such How do you remember your -" alt="facebook_reset_confirmation_email.png" class="h_mi" /> In this example I'll take the confirmation code that was presented in that email (1089b2b8 in this example, yours will be different), enter it into the last page that FaHow do you remember your - facebook_new_password.pngress Submit and:

facebook_new_password.png Having confirmed that I am the rightful owner of the account, by having accessed the email associated with the account, Facebook now allows me to set my own new password.
That's the official, and proper way to regain access to your account: by proving ownership of the email account (or mobile number, which works similarly) and then setting a new password.
Facebook log in password recovery I need to make it clear that if you want to recover your existing password you simply might not be able to.
That being said, if you've had your browser remember the password for you, it might be frighteningly easy.
I'll use Firefox as my example.
Click on Tools, Options and then inHow do you remember your - firefox_saved_passwords.pnglick on the Saved Passwords... button:

firefox_saved_passwords.png This lists all the sites for which Firefox has saved your password. You can narrow it down by typing "Facebook" in How do you remember your - firefox_are_you_sure.pngone here.
Click on Show Passwords. After a little extra paranoia:

firefox_are_you_sure.png Naturally I've blurred my password here, but in reality it's clear as day.
If you use Internet Explorer you'll need to download a separate tool. Nirsoft has several password recovery tools including "IE PassView" which will expose the passwords saved by Internet Explorer.
All this assumes, of course, that you've allowed your browser to save your passwords for you. If you have not, then this technique will not work.
Security Issue The security issue I mentioned?
If you allow your browser to save passwords, anyone with access to your machine can perform the browser password recovery steps outlined above to discover what those passwords are.
Make sure that your machine is secure.

Yesterday I changed my facebookpassword.Today,it's telling me that my E-mail address (which I have used for the past eight years) is incorrect. Also,I'm having a lot of trouble getting a secerity code.

wait for a few hours before trying again some web sites it takes at least 24 hrs to reset others less but remember the next time you sign in and if it still fails the time (take a note)you have since your last login attempt it will be that + more before you should try again

hope this helps
