Some contacted me claiming I won money through a Facebook promotion. Is this real? No! Facebook does not run a lottery, give away money, or ask for bank or credit card info for any reason. This is a scam. Do not reply to the message. Do I need a government ID to reset my password, or is this a scam? wikiHow Contributor Community Answer No, that is a scam. Do not give out any personal information unless face to face with the person requesting it or applying for credit cards, jobs, certain accounts, etc. Why would an internal error keep blocking me when I am logged into Facebook?
wikiHow Contributor Community Answer If this error is still persisting, and preventing you from utilizing Facebook, they would probably like to know about it. Finding bugs and glitches is actually a big-money industry, and Facebook definitely doesn’t want any weaknesses in their platform. Unfortunately, they have made it nearly impossible to contact them about specific glitches. You can submit reports about glitches with the report tool, or contact them through the BBB as outlined in this article.
I keep getting text messages with codes to reset my password. I never put in my cell phone number in my Facebook account, and I never requested to reset my password. What is going on? It’s a random scam. Someone is attempting to hijack your account. Change your password and use the Facebook privacy settings section to log out of all of your current devices and sessions. Someone has opened a Facebook account using my name. How do I delete this fake account? Visit their profile and click “Report” in the menu options. If you don’t have your own Facebook account, use this form instead.
How do I report a stolen account? wikiHow Contributor Community Answer Visit the Report Compromised Account page and follow the instructions.
Facebook says my account is temporarily locked. How do I access it again? wikiHow Contributor Community Answer Try clearing your browser’s cache, or deleting and reinstalling the phone app. If this doesn’t work, just try again once a day until your access returns.
