Facebook Password

How to recover your Facebook password

Share this...

To start, Facebook does not send a copy of the password to access your profile if you have forgotten the combination. “We can’t send you a copy of your password without resetting it,” the Help Center says. In that case, if you can’t remember, you will need to change the password . However, to reset it is necessary to have access to the email used in the registration or to the cell phone number associated with your account.

How to reset your Facebook password

  1. Go to the Facebook login page
  2. Click on “Forgot your account?” at the top right corner
  3. If you can’t find the account, fill out the form to identify your profile
  4. Choose the contact to receive a password reset link (email or cell phone)
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen and confirm the code you receive to complete the login.

If you are unable to reset your password directly on Facebook (changing in Settings), try contacting your email provider to regain access and then request a password reset using the old email address.

As soon as you access the account again (using the code sent by cell phone or email), it will be possible to change the login email to one that you use most often.

Trusted contacts on Facebook

If you activated the “Trusted Contacts” feature in advance and lost access to your account, you can count on the chosen friends to retrieve the profile.

  1. Go to the Facebook login page
  2. Click on “Forgot your account?” at the top right corner
  3. If prompted, find your account using your own email, phone and username or full name and click “Search”
  4. If you don’t have access to any of the emails, click on “Don’t have access anymore?”
  5. Insert a new email or phone that you have access to and “Continue”
  6. Click on “Reveal my trusted contacts” and enter the full name of one
  7. You will see a set of instructions that includes a special URL . The URL contains a recovery code that only your trusted contacts can access
  8. Send the URL to one of them who can see the security code for you
  9. Use the recovery codes of the trusted contact to access your account.

How do I help a friend recover an account

If one of your friends loses their password, they can ask you for help, if you are listed as one of their trusted contacts. If that is the case, it is very simple.

  1. Visit the URL that your friend sends to access a security code
  2. Inform the code to your friend by phone, messages or in person
