  1. My issue is that I have the friend codes and already received the message that I successfully proved my identity. It wants to send and email link to complete the process but the email it sends the link to is locked by google. So the system made me do it again only this time when I input my friends codes it says I tried too many times and try again later. I try again later and get the same message. I tried too many times, try again later. I need to speak to someone at FACEBOOK or ask them to update my email so I can get this link.

    1. Facebook actually taking the measurement for the account security. You need to stop attempting anymore. No one actually knows, how long, but give it a little break before you try again. Secondly, you are also in a loop since your Google Gmail account is locked and you can’t access. The only option available with you is to prove identity sending it to your friend. As you already tried too many times, I will suggest you try it after a few days and select another friend if you have the option during recovery.

  2. Hi, how do I recover my account if I don’t have access to the number linked to my account anymore? I sent my ID to verify and the Facebook team still hasn’t got back to me. How long do they take to respond?

    1. Usually, Facebook allows all the multiple options to the user in order to set as a recovery option. Apart from primary recovery options, there are also other alternative options to set. The alternative options for instance if you lose access to the primary recovery option. If you lost access to your account, then you can easily recover via email account to get the verification link to password reset. In case you don’t have access to email, then the phone number is there to get a backup code. Or an alternative option to choose, and sometimes friends verification.

      The most important, that you start the process of recovery specifically from the similar device and location you usually sign in. It is actually letting Facebook aware that you are the owner of the subject account. Filling up recovery form to Facebook, usually, take 24 to 48 hours if you are lucky and using a similar device. It is actually prioritizing to the support team. However, there are chances that you wait for a response from Facebook up to a week and sometimes weeks. The reason behind, that Facebook is calculating the scenario and to make sure that during the waiting period, someone else is take claiming the subject account. For instance, you went on vacation and have no internet. Friend of yours, know this and trying to get access to your account. In the meantime, if you claim when you can’t sign in, the issue get escalate and subject to security clearance in order to provide it to the owner.

      The explaining in detail is for the purpose let you know, what you should do exactly, and why you need to wait so long.

    Thanks,

    1. Hello Terry

      The email you receive is clearly stating “please reply to this email with details”. So did you try to reply and provide the details to Facebook?.
      Usually, when you try recovery account against your compromise account, then on the other hands, someone else receiving notification and letting Facebook know that he is the owner. But Facebook is still allowing you the chance to reply to their email and provide in-depth details.
      These details to prove that you are the owner, and let them know how you lost access to your account and mentioned activities that suppose you are not doing that.

  9. Ok I did the 3 friends code and it said you have successfully verified your identity an email has been sent but I never received the email.

    1. Ensure that you have access to a similar account where Facebook is sending mail. If you already have access to the related email, then try checking spam or Trash. Sometimes, the message skipping the inbox and moving directly to Spam or Trash.

  10. My first account. favour love. was hacked I reported it for Facebook to block it. So opened another account. Facebook blocked it. I still open another one they blocked it thinking it was me that hacked myself please you guys should something about it cause am tired of all this the name of the last account they block is. Mhiz favorite please you guys should something about it

    1. Hello Mhiz

      When you report a compromised account, then you should wait for it recover by Facebook help team. And you should be able to use the account again. Thus there is no need to create a new one using similar details.

    2. My Facebook account says “Documents being reviewed, please be patient” it has been reviewing my documents for almost a year. I didn’t send my government ID when they asked me for it because I use my AKA on Facebook instead of my real name. I want to send my government ID but it’s not letting me do anything. When I send a disabled page application they say my account is not disabled. I need my account back to retrieve all the sentimental pictures that I have taken since 2009.

  11. My facebook account was hacked by John Mark, on the 5/01/2020, i also fills the facebook recover forms with my ID since then till now, i can’t access my account; Emmanuel Ali

  12. I can’t log in into my account.I can’t remember my password, I can’t remember the password used for email too…and my number has been removed from my account.pls I need help to recover my password

    1. When you create an account, as a user, you set the recovery option for a purpose to access your account via alternative option when you can’t access to the primary key. It’s always user mistake while not keeping the alternative option.

      At the moment, you can follow the suggestion, to start the recovery option from a similar device/computer you try to sign in last time. Furthermore, a similar location will be more preferred. So when you try the recovery method, the Facebook security can detect the similar device and IP you are using to demonstrate the account owner.

    The problem is, I no longer have this phone number. So, Facebook is not letting me access my account.
