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.
First step is to report/ lodge complaint with Facebook about the hack.
Two, unless you know how to hack, it might bedifficult, tasking and almost impossible to get your hacked Facebook account back.
However, you can access your former Facebook account by searching for the profile/account name used so you can access, extract and save all your photos/ videos, etc uploaded there.
You don't have to be friends on Facebook to be able to do this. Simply light on to Facebook with another account.
You may have to reconsider using tte same device you've been using to register or log on to Facebook as it is obvious your accounts get readily hacked.
An account on a social networking website such as Facebook can be a prime target for hackers. If you have lost access to your Facebook account because it has been hacked, your first priority is to regain access to the account before the hacker can send messages to your friends that could result in their accounts being compromised as well.
Facebook provides tools that you can use to recover a compromised account, based on whether or not your personal email account has been hacked as well.If You Can Access Your Email
1. Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 1 on the page.
2. Click the link after Step 1 on the new page to begin the process of resetting your Facebook password.
Click in the box under "Enter Your Facebook Username," and type the name that you use when logging in to Facebook.
Alternatively, use the first box to enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.
Click the "Search" button.
A security check window appears.
Type the words that appear on the screen, and then click "Submit."
Click the "Reset Password" button.
Facebook sends an email to the address linked to your account.
The email address is displayed on the screen.
If the email address displayed is not your own, it means that the hacker who compromised your account changed the email address associated with it. If this is the case, follow the steps in the section "If You Cannot Access Your Email."
Check your email address for a message titled "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation."
Open the email and click the link contained within.
The Web browser navigates to the Facebook password reset page.
Type the password that you would like to use for your Facebook account, and then type it a second time to confirm that you entered it correctly.
Click "Change Password" to log in to the account.
If You Cannot Access Your Email
Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 2 on the page.
Click the first link on the new page if your email account has been hacked and you no longer have access to it, or click the second link if you followed the steps in the section.
"If You Can Access Your Email" and the email address displayed was not your own.
Type the phone number or username of your Facebook account, and then click "Search."
If you are unable to get a match, type your name plus the name of one of your Facebook friends.
Type the words displayed in the security check box, and then click "Submit."
This brings you to a Web form titled "My Account Has Been Compromised."
Fill in the information requested on the form, including your Facebook username, your name, any email addresses associated with the account, your own email address and a description of the problem.
This sends a message to Facebook notifying its support staff that your account has been compromised.
Before unlocking your account, a member of the Facebook staff will contact you to confirm your identity.
Somebody is trying to hack your FB account. Here's how you fix it:
Try Changing your email address linked to your Facebook account. Go to Facebook, then to account, then to account settings change email to a new email address. Facebook will then send you a confirmation email to your new email address inbox, follow link to confirm. Then go back to Facebook and go back to account, account settings and change the email to the new email address ...don't forget to remove the old (hacked) email address at this point.
Hope it this works and help you.
