Facebook has been blocked, but this blockage has been circumvented by employees accessing facebook being linked to their email. Is there a method of blocking facebook that has been linked to the email? or should I just block email access altogether?

    How are you blocking facebook? Is it some sort of group policy, or are you blocking it at a firewall?

    Facebook's website is blocked completely, but still accessible when a employee has their email linked to facebook. I'm trying to find a solution, to leave email access available, but deny facebook altogether....

Hello, and good morning to you.

The simple way is to just block e-mail access all together.

I know the employees will complain, but they are there to work, not to be on social networks chatting with their friends, and playing games on your system.

I don't know how many employees we are talking about, so that is why I have given you this choice.

If we are only talking about 2-4 employees, then I would just use account management to blacklist facebook, but if you have several that are doing the circumvention, then blocking e-mail access is really the best way to stop them.

I hope this helps you out, and have a good day.

I received an email from facebook informing me that I have won US$900 000,00 in the Facebook Group Award Program 2016 which was drawn on 18 March 2016. Is there such a competition or draw?


Hi Juaan, Unfortunately there's lots of scammers on Facebook, The link below is a YouTube page full of videos showing scammers on Facebook, Hackers gained entry to Facebook's internal corporate network for several months, with access to hundreds of the social network's employee usernames and passwords.
The hackers, which were actively exploiting Facebook's network in July and September last year and possibly as recently as February this year, were discovered by a security researcher perform testing on Facebook's corporate network.
Having discovered seven security vulnerabilities with Facebook's corporate tools, including a file transfer service, Devcore security researcher Orange Tsai found that at least one hacker, possibly two, had compromised Facebook and were operating within its corporate network.
Tsai said: "While collecting vulnerability details and evidences for reporting to Facebook, I found some strange things on web log.
"The hacker created a proxy on the credential page to log the credentials of Facebook
employees. These logged passwords were stored under web directory for the hacker to use [collect] every once in a while."
According to Tsai, the logged Facebook employee credentials could have given the hackers access to email accounts, Facebook's virtual private network and other company tools. Facebook user data is stored separately to its corporate network; it is unknown whether the right Facebook employee credentials could have given the hackers access to Facebook user data.
Tsai said: "At the time I discovered these, there were around 300 logged credentials dated between 1-7, from 1 February, mostly '@fb.com' and '@facebook.com'. Upon seeing it I thought it was a pretty serious security incident."
The testing - a series of attempts by security researchers to find and report holes in a site or service's cyber security - was conducted as part of Facebook's Bug Bounty, which sees the social network pay people who find and disclose vulnerabilities to the company.
Facebook was alerted to the hack on 5 February by Tsai. The company launched an internal investigation, which concluded on 20 April, allowing Devcore to publish the details of the hack.
Commenting on Hacker News, a Facebook security team member called Reginaldo said: "On this case, the software we were using is third party. As we don't have full control of it, we ran it isolated from the systems that host the data people share on Facebook. We do this precisely to have better security.
"We determined that the activity Orange detected was in fact from another researcher who participates in our bounty program. Neither of them were able to compromise other parts of our infra-structure."
Facebook has not responded to request for comment.

I cant get too my facebook account


When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself.
In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active.
Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.
Reset a Hacked Facebook Account
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.
Click "Submit."
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.

Www.facebook.com i cannot access facebook at work


A lot of companies have blocked any and all social networking sites from being accessed. So the employees do their work and not spend their 'clock time' social networking and 'wasting time' as they call it.

It's a very common thing. It's blocked for a reason.

I cant open my face book page from my office


Employers do not always approve of employees accessing Facebook while on the job. If you work for a company that does not like employees getting on Facebook, it does not necessarily mean that you cannot get on the site. Although it may not be good for your career in the long term, other options are available for getting on the site when your employer puts a block on your social networking efforts through Facebook. You simply need to get a little more creative to gain access.

1.Use a service that emails entire Web pages to an email address. For example, EmailTheWeb.com is a service that allows you to enter the URL of any Web page into a box and enter an email address; it then emails that page to the appropriate email. You need to know the URL of the Facebook page you want to look at, but this option can work.
2.Utilize a proxy server to access Facebook. A proxy server is a website that allows you to access other sites through another server. This way, to your computer it simply looks like you are visiting the proxy server website. While on the proxy, you have the ability to navigate to Facebook.
3.Type the IP address of Facebook into your browser. Depending on the program that your employer is using to block Facebook, it may simply block certain URLs. By typing the IP address into the Web browser, it could pull up the website. Facebook actually uses several IP addresses. Using an IP lookup site can help you find the IP address that you need.
4.Subscribe to certain pages on Facebook with really simple syndication, or RSS. Certain Facebook Walls allow you to subscribe to them through RSS. Then when you want to access them, open your RSS reader and you should be able to see the latest updates.

I hope you find it very helpful.

Are you using Internet access supplied by your school? or, by your employer?
If so, then they are entitled to block such "time-wasting" web-sites.

Talk to your local wireless mobile telephone company.
Some of them sell a USB device that carries your Internet traffic over their wireless network,
thus circumventing your current network connection, and circumventing their restrictions.

Of course, there's a monthly fee for using that USB device.
