Why I can't open my Facebook page I was on it earlier and now I can't get back on my Facebook profile page etc.


Hmm... someone might have hacked your account. Try checking your inbox from the email provider your Facebook account is associated with. For example, if your email address has a domain name of yahoo.com, then log in to Yahoo, check your inbox. Facebook sends you an email right away if your Facebook account was hacked. The email they send informs you that your email address was replaced with a new one. Then it asks you if that is your own doing, you can just ignore it. But since you suspect someone is using your account, then that person might have replaced your email address with his. If that is the case, then there's an option in that email Facebook sent you to 'let them know' or 'secure your account'. Click on it. If you're successful, you should be able to get hold of your account back. And Facebook system will even prompt you to change your password.

Moral of the story? You should not give any of your email addresses to anyone. Not even to family members, relatives or friends. If the computer you're using is also used by other people and there are no separate user accounts for each [meaning everyone can log into that computer as administrator then one safety tip is to NOT save your password in Mozilla Firefox. If you do and another person who is Internet savvy clicked on the browser's Tools menu [Tools>Options>Security>Saved Passwords] when you're away, then that person can hack your account/s. If you're the owner of the computer and you're sharing it with other people, better create a guest account or user accounts for each person who uses your computer, but make sure you're the administrator of your own computer and that each of you has his/her own password when logging on to the computer.

Tip

Facebook account suspended, facebook account locked,


If your facebook account is suspended this is most likely due to facebook issuing you warnings that if certain behavior is not stopped then they will suspend your account. This can be because you sent to many friend request or your account was sending malicious information out. You might not have done this willingly, but instead your account was comprised.

In some cases once you log in to your facebook you will get a notice that your account was suspended and you will need to follow the on screen prompts in order to unlock it. This is usually a verification of your personal information like date of birth, name etc.

If you do not have this option you can email disabled@facebook.com. Include your email address that is registered on facebook in the subject line of the email. In the body of the email describe the problem you are having and they will respond back to you. This can take up to 5 days but the time varies.

Tips to prevent your account from being compromised

What is phishing? Phishing is a way of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy source.

-There are a lot of phishing attempts on facebook and other scams aimed at spreading viruses and stealing personal information. Be careful when you click links on facebook that take you to other pages requesting your personal information like facebook usernames and passwords. Also, be careful when using apps, some have been phishing attempts and will request your information and permission to access your account, then it will send out malicious links to attempt to get other people involved, spreading throughout facebook.

-Do not respond to emails claiming to be from facebook requesting personal information such as your username and password. These are obvious phishing attempts.

-Always keep your anti virus programs up to day. I would also you download and install MalwareBytes and AVG anti virus. They are both free to use security tools and I use them.

Last thursday 5, when i try to check my facebook account i found my password not working anymore and claim that i am not the one.


When Facebook was founded on February 4, 2004, it defined its mission as "Giving people the power to share and make the world more open and connected."
With the widespread success of this social networking website today more than 500 million regular users as of April 2011 it may meet that goal for many.
When a Facebook user can no longer access an account, it can be frustrating, but there is typically a reasonable explanation.
Cookies/Cache
Facebook suggests that any user who can't access their account should clear cookies and cache on their computer as a first step.
This will help remove old and unneeded files from your computer, and will sometimes help your computer to run faster, as well as allowing access to Facebook again.
Once cookies and cache have been cleared, you should type "m.facebook.com" into the address bar on your computer.
Avoid using any old bookmarks or links to visit Facebook for this first visit after clearing the cookies and cache.
Password Incorrect
If you attempt to log into your Facebook account with an incorrect password, you will be unable to access your account.
Even if you have the correct email address, that is only half of the log-in equation, and the correct password is absolutely necessary to log into the site.
If you may have entered the wrong password, enter it again, taking care to get each character correct.
Passwords are case sensitive, so all capital and lowercase letters and any symbols must be entered correctly.
If you have forgotten your password, you will need to click the "Forgot Your Password" link to recover your account and create a new password.
Account Closed
Facebook reserves the right to close accounts that they have determined are in violation of their terms of service.
If Facebook found that your account contained inappropriate content, did not represent a real person, or violated Facebook rules in some way, the account may be closed, leaving you unable to access it.
If your account was closed for one of these reasons, your login will fail and you will be provided with a link to Facebook's "Confirm Your Identity" page, where you can read about typical reasons for account closures.
Email Login Incorrect
If you have entered the incorrect email address, you will be unable to log into your Facebook account.
The email address that you use to log into Facebook is case sensitive, just as your email address is. If you fail to capitalize a letter or forget to insert an underscore that is part of the email address, login will fail.
If you cannot access your Facebook account due to an incorrect email address, double checking the address for correctness prior to logging in again will resolve the issue.
Compromised Account
If account information such as your email address or password is stolen, your account may be compromised.
If, for example, your account information is stolen, the person in possession of your log-in information can access your account and change the password so that you will no longer be able to get to your account.
If you think this may have happened, you must access the "Compromised Account" page on Facebook and follow steps to prove your identity and secure your account.

Reset Facebook Password
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.

Your account has been discovered by someone to not have all the security activated and they have extracted all the information they were able out of it.
You can either go into the setting and put everything on private (but this is like closing the barn doors after the horses have bolted) or, best, delete the account. You can wait for 3 months then use another e-mail address to create another account if you really need it.

Hi,
From the description of the issue, it seems your friend accessed his Facebook account on your computer and then did not log out of his Facebook page. So to resolve this issue, you will have to log out of his account and then log in to your account.

To log out of the Facebook account of the person who last used your computer, kindly click the "Account" tab at the top-right of the Facebook page and select "Logout" from the drop-down menu. (See attached image)
