Community Q&A

  • Question
    Do I need a government ID to reset my password, or is this a scam?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    No, that is a scam. Do not give out any personal information unless face to face with the person requesting it or applying for credit cards, jobs, certain accounts, etc.
  • Question
    Some contacted me claiming I won money through a Facebook promotion. Is this real?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    No! Facebook does not run a lottery, give away money, or ask for bank or credit card info for any reason. This is a scam. Do not reply to the message.
  • Question
    Why would an internal error keep blocking me when I am logged into Facebook?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    If this error is still persisting, and preventing you from utilizing Facebook, they would probably like to know about it. Finding bugs and glitches is actually a big-money industry, and Facebook definitely doesn't want any weaknesses in their platform. Unfortunately, they have made it nearly impossible to contact them about specific glitches. You can submit reports about glitches with the report tool, or contact them through the BBB as outlined in this article.
  • Question
    I keep getting text messages with codes to reset my password. I never put in my cell phone number in my Facebook account, and I never requested to reset my password. What is going on?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    It's a random scam. Someone is attempting to hijack your account. Change your password and use the Facebook privacy settings section to log out of all of your current devices and sessions.
  • Question
    Someone has opened a Facebook account using my name. How do I delete this fake account?
    wikiHow Contributor

    Visit their profile and click "Report" in the menu options. If you don't have your own Facebook account, instead.
  • Question
    How do I report a stolen account?
    wikiHow Contributor

  • Question
    Facebook says my account is temporarily locked. How do I access it again?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Try clearing your browser's cache, or deleting and reinstalling the phone app. If this doesn't work, just try again once a day until your access returns.
  • Question
    Someone opened an account using one of my email addresses & I am getting all her notifications. How can I stop this woman?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Log in with that email address and do the "forgot password" option. Once they email the reset to you, change the password. If she doesn't have access to the email account, she should not be able to get the password. Be sure to log out of all active logins.
  • Question
    How do I stop someone from posting pictures of me?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can politely ask them not to post the pictures. If that does not work, you can report the images that are taken of you without consent to whichever platform they are being posted to. If the problem persists, you can take legal action.
