How to Recover Hacked Facebook Account

How to Recover Hacked Facebook Account

Today, we want to talk about how to recover a hacked Facebook account. Facebook is one of the most popular and the most populated social media sites in recent times. As such, Facebook became a place for hackers to consider, and because of that, many people suffer from hacked or stolen accounts today. Of course, the stolen Facebook account is one of the worst things that can happen to us on Facebook, and we do not want to encounter such an unfortunate event. Before you find the answer, we want to show you what precautions you can take for your Facebook account before it’s hacked or stolen.

  • You should turn off your email from being seen by others so that you can prevent other people from accessing your email.
  • It would help if you made the email address password to which your Facebook account is linked a secure password and do not use only numbers.
  • You should allow Facebook to define a phone number. So, if someone wants to hack your Facebook, you’ll be sent a verification code, and it’s hard to get the Facebook address without giving it to them.
  • Keep your password long. Your password should contain not only letters but also numbers.

How to Get a Stolen Facebook Account Back

If you receive notifications that someone is trying to log in to your account, your account may have been compromised. If your account is compromised, then it means that someone else is logged in to your account without your permission. Well, if you think someone is logged in to your account without your permission, you should secure your account. We’ll show you a few steps to change your password and get your account back.

If the person who stole your Facebook has not changed the email address to which your Facebook is connected, your job is really easy. You can recover a hacked Facebook account. To do so, you must follow the steps below:

Go to the Facebook login page and click on the ‘’Forgot Password’’ option or just go to the https://www.facebook.com/hacked page. For now, let’s look at how to do it with the login page, then we’ll cover the other one.

  • Try to log in first and click on the ”Forgot Password” button. Then you will lead to the Reset Password page.
log into facebook
  • On the Reset Your Password page, select the ‘Send code via email” option, click on ‘Continue’ and take a look at your email.
reset facebook password
  • After checking your mail, enter the security code on the page that Facebook leads you to.
enter security code facebook
  • You can create a new password for your account now.
renew facebook password
  • Now you should have successfully changed your Facebook password. You can start using your account again.

After these steps, you have retrieved your Facebook address.

How to Recover Through the Hacked Page

If you click on the link we have included above in the article, you can get to the hacked page of Facebook and recover your account from there. Here are the steps:

Once you’re in the page, you will see a set of scenarios. If your account is hacked, pick the one that says ”Someone else got into my account without my permission.”

Then, start the process of securing your account. Click on ‘Get Started’ and let Facebook check your account.

How to Recover Facebook Account with No Access to Password or E-Mail

In this situation, someone probably didn’t just change your password and changed your e-mail address, too. Alternatively, you have forgotten the password of your e-mail address that is linked to Facebook, and you can not log in. However, there is no need to worry, you can easily solve this situation, and you can recover a hacked Facebook account.

If you are an old Facebook user:

  • Go to the Facebook login page and click on the ‘‘Forgot Password’’ button.
  • Enter your Facebook account information in the text box, and click the search button.
  • Click to the ‘’You no longer have access to this?’’ option.
  • Then, Facebook will send you to the extended recovery options section. If you’re an old Facebook user, Facebook will ask you to answer some questions when you answered before.

If you are not an old Facebook user:

  • Suppose you are not an old Facebook user and have already chosen trusted contacts, Facebook will send you to do ‘’Trusted Contacts’’ option.
  • You must enter a new e-mail address or a phone number that you know you can access.
  • Then you must click to the ‘’Reveal My Trusted Contacts’’ option and type the name of one of your trusted contacts.
  • Then, you will see a link. This link is special because it contains a security code, and only your trusted contacts can access this code.
  • You must send this link to your friends. So, they can tell you the security code, and you can get your account back.

Well, nobody can know that. There are a lot of ill-intended people outside. Just know that they can do nothing against you with your account.
