How To Recover a Hacked Facebook Account

Ask a question
Logging into Facebook and finding that your account has been hacked or compromised can be unsettling and aggravating. Luckily, there are a few simple methods you can use to recover or reset your account.


Recover Facebook with Your Email Address

The recovery method via your email address allows you to work with Facebook to recover access to your account by providing your email address, user name, or full name. Facebook will, then, take you through a series of verification steps to recover access to your profile.


Begin the self-recovery method by going to this page.

Recover Facebook Account Without Email

If your login email was changed during the hack, this Contact page will allow you to flag a connection problem to your account. Enter your email address, and Facebook will work with you to solve the issue.

Facebook Login Information Changed

The Facebook Help page provides you with a list of options that allow you to get help based on your specific problem.
