How to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account.

Hello readers, as I have written many posts regarding Facebook category, today, I'm writing one more post. Daily, we can see a lot of facebook accounts getting hacked. People were confused about what to do when their accounts get hacked.

Nowadays, even elders are using Facebook a lot. But they might not have some technical knowledge about this hacking stuff. So I've decided to write a simple procedure about How to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account which might help all people. Just follow these simple recovery steps which I wrote below,

Steps for Recovering a Hacked Facebook Account:

TIP: Try to do this below Recovery Process from a DEVICE you usually use (or) a LOCATION (Ip Address) you usually use your FB Account!

Becoz, if you perform the process from a Recognised Device or Location, then FB will think that you're the real owner and help you more easily in gaining back your account!

First-of-all, you have to visit "My Account Is Compromised" page on facebook. So click here to visit that page.

Now click, "My Account Is Compromised" button and you'll be redirected to 'Find Your Account' page. Now you have to identify your Fb account either by entering your Email id or Username or Phone no or your profile's Full name.

[Tip: If the hacker has changed your email id, phone no in your account in order to prevent you from recovery, then try to search by entering the Username

'Coz the hacker can change email id, mobile no but he cannot change your username which you already set! So I hope that you understood my logic!! πŸ™‚

Or even try searching by your 'Profile Name' ]

Don't know what is your 'Username'? or forgot?

As of now, unless you successfully identify your account, you cannot recover your hacked account. πŸ™  So try to identify your account with all your trials. 

So once you've identified your account, it will ask you to 'Enter a Current or Old Password'. Of course, if you know the current password, you won't be here on this page, lol. πŸ˜€

So enter your old password which you kept for that account.

Now when you enter your old password, it will ask you to 'Reset Your Password'. So click it.

So, now you should be on 'Reset Your Password' page. Well, here there are 2 cases,

a) If you can see your email id or cell no and if you have access to them, then use any of those options to reset the password. So follow the next steps on the screen and you'll successfully gain your account. That's it. Now you can leave this post. πŸ™‚

If you have any doubts, you can ask it in the below comment box. πŸ™‚

b​) If the hacker has also hacked your email account or maybe he removed the existing email id or cell no in your Fb account, then click the option 'No longer have access to these?'.

So when you click 'No longer have access to these?', you'll be redirected to 'How can we reach you?' page. Now enter your new email id or phone no so that Facebook will send you further details about your account recovery process.

So now when you enter your new email id or cell no, then you'll be taken to a page which has any one of the 4 cases below depending upon your profile settings,

I mean, it varies from profile to profile!

1

CASE A:

A)  "Ask your trusted contacts for help" [If you have already set "Trusted contacts" to your Fb Accnt]

You  can  check  this  pic  for  example!

           [ or ]

2

​CASE B:

B)  "Ask your friends for help " [If you haven't set "Trusted contacts" to your Fb Accnt]

You  can  check  this  pic  for  example!

Note:  Here in this case, some random 5 friends in your account will be automatically selected by Facebook on its own! So you should contact any 3 of them to collect the codes!

If you don't know any of those 5 friends, I mean If you haven't got their Phone no's to call or Email id's to ping them, then I can't help you! :'(

           [ ​or ]

3

CASE C:

C)  "Filling the Form - I Can't Log In " [If you haven't set "Trusted contacts" to your Fb Accnt (or) If you haven't set Email Address]

You  can  check  this  pic  for  example!

          [or ]

4

CASE D:

UPDATE: Facebook has stopped this option at present! I haven't seen this case running any more! πŸ™

D)  "Answer Your Security Question" [If you had set "Security Question" to your FB accnt before 1 year ago, as of now I can't find any option of "Security Question" in my 'Profile Settings']

You  can  check  this  pic  for  example!

So now When you have successfully solved the given case for you then you'll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password.

Like If you get either Case A or Case B of Step 6 then after entering all the 3 codes correctly, you'll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password. πŸ™‚

Or if you got Case C, then after submitting your ID picture, Fb Staff will review it and you’ll get a message from them to your new email inbox of which you have submitted in Step 5b.

There in the mail, based upon on the ID picture which you submitted, they will respond and guide you the next recovery steps!


Or let's assume that if you got Case D, Which is no longer provided by FB officially, but even though I'm guiding this case too just for my readers' safety,

So when you have successfully answered your security question, then you’ll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password.

So after you choose a new password, you’ll get a message to your new email inbox of which you have submitted in Step5b. So in that message, there will be a link which will be given by Facebook to confirm your identity. So click it!!

So when you clicked that link, you have successfully recovered your account. Now all you need to do is, – to come back after 24hrs. After 24 hrs, just log in to your FB with new email id, new password!!




So that’s it, guys. This is the whole process to recover a hacked facebook account. πŸ™‚

Simple Tip to be shared with your Friends

What to do immediately when your Facebook account was hacked?

Guys, the easiest way is, to go to your   E-mail inbox and click a link about which Facebook sent you when someone logged in or changed your password.

It works in all situations even if the hacker has changed the mail address and anything else. And always remember to keep your E-Mail Inbox secure at high priority than anything else. Never use the same password for your Fb account and e-mail account. πŸ˜‰
