Steps to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account
Here, I present to you a step by step procedure to recover a Facebook account. Also, you can secure your Facebook account from being hacked again in the future. Just follow these simple steps:
If your Facebook account has been hacked by a person or even by a virus, the first thing to do is to access the following link: Click here: “Facebook Account – AllTop9.”
Next, click “My Account Is Compromised.” On the next page, enter your email address, full name, username/phone number associated with your account, and click on the Search button.
Complete the security task by entering the captcha in the box and then click on continue.
When your account is displayed, enter the password you once used to log into Facebook before someone hacked your account. Then click Continue.
You will see the option to reset your password by email. If you don’t have access to your email, I suggest you click the “No longer have access to these” option, and then “I can not access my email.” Refer to the bottom of the article for guidance on what to do in this situation.
Finally, we need to enter a new email address for Facebook support. You must follow the next steps to recover your hacked Facebook account eventually.
After confirming the new email address or phone number, it will ask you to answer the secret question. If you answer correctly, then it proceeds to the next step.
Once you answer the security question correctly, the next step is to type the new password. This is the last step where you can change your password to recover the hacked Facebook account.
How to Convert Facebook Account/Profile to a Page without Loss of Information
What if you can’t access the email associated with your account?
First, if you have an alternate or additional email that you had previously added, you should try logging in with that one. Of course, this is unlikely as you probably didn’t expect to find yourself in this situation. On the off chance that you have multiple emails linked though, you can use the other one. If you’re not sure if you do, you can go to this link: facebook.com/login/identify to see which credentials are associated with your account.
You can also try to get back into your email by contacting your mail service provider. A lot of services offer online support in the form of chat rooms to help you with any problems you might have. Tell them what’s going on and they might help you figure out steps to take to regain access to your original email. Sometimes, it’s as easy as making a call!
If nothing else has worked, simply double-check your login information. Did you recently reset the password? Do you have the right recovery email selected? Make sure everything was entered correctly.
