How to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account.

Hello readers, as I have written many posts regarding facebook, 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 hack 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:

Step 1:

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


Step 2:

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 login by entering the username. ‘Coz the hacker can change email id, mobile no but he cannot change your username. So I hope that you understood my logic!!]

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


Step 3:

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. 😀

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

Step 5:

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. If you have any doubts, you can ask it in the below comment box. 🙂

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?‘.
