Here is what facebook recommends.
Facebook says my account has been compromised. Why can't I access my account? If you are unable to log in to your account and are receiving a warning that your account appears to be compromised, Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account and has temporarily suspended it as a security precaution. It is possible that your password was "phished," or stolen by a website designed to look like Facebook. You will be able to regain access to your account once you complete the automated security verification process. When you regain access to your account, please be sure to follow all of the suggested security precautions, including:

  1. Password Protection: You should select a unique and complex password for your account and keep this entirely to yourself. Be sure that you use a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. It should also be different from other passwords you use elsewhere on the internet.
  2. Private Browsing: Please make sure that you log out of your Facebook account and quit your browser when you're done using the site. This is especially important when using a public computer or someone else's mobile device. You should also never check the "Keep me logged in" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close your browser window.
  3. Secure Email: Since anyone who can read your email can probably also access your Facebook account, you should make sure that any email addresses associated with your account are secure. To ensure security, you should change the password for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same. By varying your passwords, you can greatly decrease your account's risk of being compromised in the future.
  4. Security Question: If you have not done so already, you should add a security question to your account from the Account Settings page. You should choose a question and answer that you will remember, and no one else should be able to answer the question that you choose.
  5. Log in at Facebook.com: Make sure that when you access the site, you always log in from a legitimate Facebook page with the facebook.com domain. Do not click any unfamiliar links and do not run any executable files (files ending in .exe) on your computer without knowing what they are. If something looks or feels suspicious, go directly to www.facebook.com to log in.
  6. Run Anti-Virus Software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove these harmful programs and keep your information secure.

How do i close facebook account


Hi Anna,

Log into FB and then click on settings from the drop down list on the far right hand side at the top. Click on security and click on deactivate account. Follow the steps to close the account. This will make your account unavailable on FB.

However, please note that FB does not delete the account. It will re-activate as soon as you log in to the account again. It is my understanding that FB will never delete the account only deactivate it (have a good read of their terms of service).

Regards,

Matt

Fb deactivated my accont,don't know why.what can I do to get it back


You or someone with access to your account most likely has done something prohibited. If it were me I would create a new account with my nickname instead of my real name or add a letter to the spelling of my name. OH, get a new email address to register. The right thing to do is contact FB and ask questions.

Is it possible for me to log in to FB with my deactivated account for a message check with-out reactivating my account ? Thanks, mark


If you have deactivated your Facebook account, you can only view the message by logging back in again which will reactivate it.
You can then re-de-activate the account again after you have checked the messages you want to check.

Priviously I had FB account, I cancelled but I want to return to it. How I do it?


If you "deactivated" your account - you will be able to reactivate it by signing in.
If you "permanently deleted" your account - you will not be able to open it back up. You will have to start again.
You can find more info on this by going to help and typing in "deactivate or activate."

GMAIL TELLS ME MY PASSWORD IS WRONG. THIS IS THE ONLY PASSWORD I USED FOR GMAIL


Dear Anna,
I'm really sorry to hear you gave a total stranger, over the phone, your password. I sincerely hope someone has convinced you to close any accounts you may have and reopen with a variation of your name and a new password. If you haven't already, do the following:

Contact all your credit card companies and banks and ask them if there has been any activity on your accounts. Request your old accounts be closed and new accounts created.

Create a new GMail account. Contact Google; explain to them what happened; ask them to close the compromised account and see if they can provide you with assistance in perhaps retrieving any back-ups you may have had.

Create a new Facebook account; contact FB; tell them what happened; ask them to deactivate your old account; send a message to all your friends and ask them to "unfriend" your old account (in case FB can't deactivate it for you) and accept a new friend request from your new account.

I certainly hope you don't have any financial problems due to this. In the future remember that NO legitimate company will ask for your passwords. Either over the phone or through an email solicitation. You can always report the phone number, or the IP address of an email to the US gov. either through the Do Not Call service or spam@uce.gov

Good Luck
