If you are reading this, it is because you have lost your Facebook account. Knowing what to do in the event of losing Facebook access can be a bit tricky, but there are steps that can be taken to prevent losing this valuable resource. In this blog post we will discuss how losing a Facebook account might happen and how to prevent it from happening again.
Why Do You Need to Restore Your Account Access?
Facebook can be an important resource for people to stay in touch with friends, family and acquaintances. Not having access to your Facebook account may lead you losing these contacts. In addition, losing a Facebook account means that all the data shared on this platform is lost forever; if it was photos or videos of events from years ago, they would be gone – unless someone else had backed them up! So how do you go about restoring access?
This is even more important for women entrepreneurs who are using social media to generate content and reach their clients. As woman entrepreneurs, we are leaders of technology so we must do our best to master it.
Read on below…
What Do You Need To Restore Your Account Access?
– A working email address (that has not been used as a username)
– An active phone number associated with your profile – If none are available then verifying using two different methods will be required: either by connecting through another Facebook account or by taking a code sent to you via text.
– A photo ID (such as your driver’s license) – This is not necessary, but it can speed up the process if identification has previously been verified in another way.
Make Sure You are Facebook Compliant
Increase Your Account Security
It is important to check the security settings frequently. If you have a Facebook app installed, you will need to go into your account settings and make sure that the correct permissions are set. You can also do this for any other apps or games that may be used on your profile.
Make Sure Your Password Is Hard To Guess
Using short passwords with standard words is one of the most common ways losing access can happen. You should not use your name, address or telephone number in a password since this is easily accessible through social media and other sources on the Internet.
Storing Your Password In A Secure Location
Another way losing access can happen is losing track of where you store your accounts passwords online. If you are using either Google Chrome’s sign-in feature or Apple Keychain to keep track of your account information, make sure it has been saved correctly before logging out from Facebook. This will prevent losing Facebook access due to forgetting passwords that have already been stored elsewhere.
Use Google Authenticator for 2-Factor Authentications
If you are using the Google Authenticator for your phone, make sure to copy down this information and keep it someplace safe. If losing access happens again simply re-download the app on a new device and reset your account through email verification or text messages.
Stock Your Recovery Codes In a Safe Location
If losing access due to losing Facebook recovery codes happens again, you can go over the email process or phone number verification options. It is important to note that this will only work if you have backed up your account information in a secure location and set it up correctly beforehand.
Do not lose hope when losing Facebook Access happens! With these steps in place, hopefully losing access won’t happen for some time now.
What if You Are Not Good with Technology?
Many people who have lost their Facebook account are not good with technology and do not know how to get back in touch. In this case, losing a Facebook account can be especially frustrating. If you feel like going through the process of losing your account has been too much hassle or is simply beyond what you want to go through, then there may still be hope for getting your access restored!
– You can contact Facebook Support via Phone – You will need an ID (as mentioned above) but they should be able to restore your access quickly and easily over the phone if that’s all you have available at the time.
– Another option would be sending them a message on Twitter . They generally reply within hours when using either platform so go ahead and give this a try if you do not want to go through losing your Facebook account.
– You may also visit the help center on their website for more information or use Live Chat with one of their support agents. Again, losing access means losing all contacts so it is important that you find out how to get yours back!
How To Prevent Losing Your Facebook Account In The Future?
Facebook allows users to change passwords very easily; make sure you are changing them every once in awhile (at least every 90 days) – just be careful about where you save these new details as they can end up saving someone else access without knowing it! Another good idea would be using two factor authentication when logging into Facebook ; this will prevent losing Facebook access in the future even if your password is compromised.
If you have lost your Facebook account, there are steps that can be taken to restore this valuable resource – especially when losing a social media profile means losing all contacts as well! If no contact details were available for recovery or restoring an email address was unsuccessful then getting back into touch with support representatives may not prove fruitful either; however, they will still look at their end and try and do what they can on their end so don’t give up just yet! Losing a Facebook account should never mean losing all important data because of how much time it would take to get everything back again. So make sure you keep those passwords safe by changing them regularly (at least once every 90 days).
