Facebook has a vast and strong security policy to give a safe and perfect experience to its users but somehow you may lose access to your account or let’s say, “Your account be hacked”.
The first thing is; you should not panic and think you have lost all your information. Although hacking an official account is immoral and the data of the user is in danger of misuse, you can recover your information via some really simple steps.
Working with experts
The best way to recover your Facebook account is to contact experts who can do the task clean for you. Of course, this may need spending some money -and maybe as much as 500$- but you are certain you will get back your Facebook account again, hopefully without using any picture or something.
What should I do if somebody hacked my Facebook account?
These are some tips you can do to recover your account or at least make it harder to hack
1- You should act immediately
If you received an email of any kind of suspicious behavior from Facebook, you should act immediately and follow the steps Facebook advises you to do it. You may be needed to change your password or secure your account. Remember, the faster you follow the emails, the harder it makes for the hacker to penetrate your account.
2- Change your password
The easiest way to secure your Facebook account is to change the way you login into your account. For changing the account’s password, you can follow these steps;
1- Login into your account, tap on the dropdown arrow.
2- Select the “Settings & Privacy” and then tap on the “Settings”.
3- Now Click on the “Security & login” on the left side of the screen.
4- Now you can enter your current password and your new password and confirm it.
We also recommend enabling Two-factor Authentication (2FA) to enhance your password security and upgrade your account. Moreover, enter your phone number and SMS verification instead of the app verification system
3- Password recovery
Sometimes you cannot use your password to login into your account and may think someone has penetrated your profile. In this situation, you should use Facebook’s account recovery option. Follow these steps;
1- Go to Facebook’s login page and click on the “Forgotten Password?”
2- Enter your recovery email address or phone number.
3- Choose to log in via your email or phone number (based on what you have written in the previous step) on click on “continue”.
4- Enter the code you received via your email or phone number and tap on “continue”
5- Enter your new password and click to confirm it.
4- Getting help from family or friends
Sometimes you cannot recover your Facebook account yourself, but a member of your family or one of your friends can help you instead.
Your friend/family member should log in to his/her account and go to the profile you need to recover. Now click the three dots icon under the profile’s name and select “Find support or report profile”.
In the next step, on the report window, select “I can’t access my account” and click on the “next” and then select “Recover this account”. Now select the “no longer access to these?” button at the bottom of the window.
Now enter an email or phone number you have access to and click “Continue” to contact a person from Facebook’s support.
5- Report your account being hacked to Facebook
If none of these methods work for you, you should report hacking directly to Facebook. Follow these steps;
1- Go to the hacked account report page and click on the “My account is compromised”.
2- Enter your email or phone number and then click “search”.
3- Enter your recent password and tap on the “continue” to report your account. Facebook also may request an image of your ID to prove your identity.
