Know that Facebook will not fix your Issues immediately and it takes some time, so be patient.

The third choice, which you can try:

First, make sure you’re using a device known to Facebook. I mean use something that you’ve already logged into your account with.

  1. Simply type “Facebook.com” on your browser and press enter.
  1. Go on and click “Forgot password”.
  1. Next, you need to type either your phone number or your email that is associated with your Facebook account. Then tap on search.

  1. After that Facebook will send you an 8 character long code. Depending on the option you’ve chosen in the previous section Facebook will send the code to your phone or email.  
  1. Type the code and press continue and then choose a new password. After you’ve done, you can log into your account. 

This solution also works when you forget your password and want to create a new one. This is so important if you follow these steps with a different device that you haven’t already logged into your account before Facebook will not send you the code.


Why are you locked out of your Facebook account?

There are a few reasons that this might happen to your account.  Mainly when there are unusual activities perhaps someone is trying to hack your account then Facebook locks you out.  Also when someone has hacked your Facebook account this can happen.

There are reports that many Facebook accounts have been hacked. So when this is the case it might take some time until you’ll be able to get your account back. In some cases, you won’t even be able to get it back. That is because the person who has hacked you has already changed your information.

Before anything crazy happens to your account it’s better to set up two-factor authenticating. Once you have set up two-factor authentication even if hackers find your Facebook password they can’t hack you. The reason is that they also need your phone.
