My account was hacked several weeks ago. The person was able to change my email address to his and he changed my name on my facebook profile and made it his name. All of my friends can see his name under my picture and it is creepy. I tried to report this with no help. I created a new page and now that has been disabled. I know it is tied to the hacking. How can I get around this?
facebook suddenly vanished on the 10th Ddecember 2020off my computor without warning and asked me to nopen anew account when i did they told me there was someone with the same name AS me already on that account there was no way i new how to tell them it was me so ive no way of entering facebook i am 90 and not to bright with these computors but not dim either will some one please help
Thank you very this and fingers crossed it works. I Still have access to my Instagram though.Somehow I deleted admin rights for the facebook business page from my shopify page and no one is listed now. So frustrating!!
Hello, Thanks for the tips and I followed your way exactly. A few days later, the facebook team replied me that they added me as an admin on the requested page but I am still just an editor. So I explained the condition and asked for more help to facebook team but nothing happened. Could you or anyone here help me with any suggestion, please?Thanks in advance.
In June 2012, Facebook removed all existing email addresses from user profiles, and added a new @facebook.com email address. Facebook claimed this was part of adding a "new setting that gives people the choice to decide which addresses they want to show on their timelines". However, this setting was redundant to the existing "Only Me" privacy setting which was already available to hide addresses from timelines. Users complained the change was unnecessary, they did not want an @facebook.com email address, and they did not receive adequate notification their profiles had been changed. The change in email address was synchronized to phones due to a software bug, causing existing email addresses details to be deleted. The facebook.com email service was retired in February 2014.
Let's say that a man decides to crack the password of a single account. He downloads some Brute force program and sets it to try every single password combination with different IPs. The same IP would be used until the captcha comes up, then it will be replaced by a new one, so facebook would not be able to stop the attack by blocking the IP.
Maybe I'm just stupid (I'm not experienced in this stuff) but the only way I see that facebook can use to stop this attack is by locking the account itself (preventing anyone from logging in), but that's bad for business because it would prevent the owner itself from logging in. Does facebook actually do this for such attacks? I assume that a large website like facebook would receive these sort of attacks frequently from different crackers, and some of them may actually attack several accounts at the same time.
So what does facebook do to prevent this? Because I don't see anything it can do besides lock the account, which is not practical. It may take months or years but with this method the hacker will eventually be able to log in, would he not?
I know that facebook has a few different security settings and that not everyone uses them to the fullest extent, so I will just go with the settings that I know from personal experience. Your mileage may vary.
Facebook does temporarily lock accounts. After too many authentication failures, it temporarily locks the facebook account for a few hours, and requires a security question/verification code to unlock the account for more verification attempts. After a 24 timeout period, you can log in again. To the consumer, 24 hours without Facebook is not the end of the world. To the brute forcer, a 24 hr delay every X attempts is a major pain. It's a good compromise between usability and protection. 2b1af7f3a8
