How to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account Immediately??

How to Recover a Hacked Facebook Account:

TIP: Try to do this below Recovery Process from a DEVICE which you usually use or from the LOCATION (Ip Address) which you usually use your facebook account.

Becoz, if you perform the recovery process from a recognised device or recognised location, Facebook will think that you’re the real owner and help you recover your hacked Facebook account more easily!

For example, generally, you might be using the same mobile phone or same computer from your home daily to access your facebook account. So now use that same device again from your home location for this below recovery process.

So here we go,

First-of-all, you have to visit “My Account Is Compromised” page on facebook. So click here to visit that page.

Now click, “My Account Is Compromised” button and you’ll be redirected to ‘Find Your Account’ page. Now you have to identify your Facebook account either by entering your Email address or Username orPhone no or your Profile’s Full name. You can use any one of them.

Tip: If the hacker has changed your email id, phone no in your account to prevent you from recovery, then try to search by entering your Facebook Username.

‘Coz the hacker could’ve changed your email id, mobile no but he might not have changed your username which you’ve already set!

Or you can even try searching by your ‘Profile Name

Don’t know what is your Facebook account Username? or forgot?

FACEBOOK - username

Check the above picture, “avinash.76” is my facebook account username, So ask your friend to go to your profile in his friend’s list and ask him to tell you what is your facebook username which you kept earlier! 🙂

As of now, unless you successfully identify your account, you cannot recover your hacked account. 🙁 So try to identify your facebook account with all your trials.

So once you’ve identified your facebook account, it will ask you to ‘Enter a Current or Old Password‘. Of course, if you know the current password, you won’t be here on this page, lol. 😀

So enter your old password which you kept for that hacked Fb account.

Now when you enter your old password, it will ask you to ‘Reset Your Password’. So click it.

So, now you should be on ‘Reset Your Password‘ page. Well, here there are 2 cases,

5a) If you can see your email id or cell no and if you have access to them, then use any of those options to reset the password. So follow the next steps on the screen and you’ll successfully gain your account. That’s it. Now you can leave this post. 🙂

If you have any doubts, you can ask it in the below comment box. 🙂 You can also check out the FAQ section at the end of the post.


5b) If the hacker has also hacked your email account or maybe he changed the existing email address or cell no in your Fb account, then click the option ‘No longer have access to these?‘.

So when you click ‘No longer have access to these?’, you’ll be redirected to the ‘How can we reach you?’ page. Now enter your new email id or phone no so that Facebook will send you further details about your account recovery process.

So now when you enter your new email id or cell no, then you’ll be taken to a page that has any one of the 4 casesbelow depending upon your profile settings,

I mean, it varies from profile to profile!

1) CASE A:

A) “Ask your trusted contacts for help [If you have already set “Trusted contacts” to your Fb Account]

You can check this pic for example!

Trusted Contacts FB


B) Ask your friends for help” [If you haven’t set “Trusted contacts” to your Fb Account]

You can check this pic for example!


Note:  Here, in this case, some random 5 friends in your account will be automatically selected by Facebook on its own! So you should contact any 3 of them to collect the codes!

If you don’t know any of those 5 friends, I mean If you haven’t got their Phone no’s to call or Email id’s to ping them, then I can’t help you! 🙁

[ or ]

3) CASE C:

C)  Filling the Form – “I Can’t Log In” [If you haven’t set “Trusted contacts” to your Fb Account (or) If you haven’t set Email Address]

You can check this pic for example!

or ]

4) CASE D:

UPDATE: Facebook has stopped this option at present! I haven’t seen this case running anymore! 🙁

D)  “Answer Your Security Question” [If you had set “Security Question” to your FB account before some time ago, as of now I can’t find any option of “Security Question” in my ‘Profile Settings’]


So now When you have successfully solved the given case for you then you’ll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password.

Like If you get either Case A or Case Bof Step 6, then after entering all the 3 codes correctly, you’ll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password. 🙂


Or if you got Case C, then after submitting your ID picture, Fb Staff will review it and you’ll get a message from them to your new email inbox of which you have submitted in Step 5b.

There in the mail, based upon the ID picture which you submitted, they will respond and guide you to the next recovery steps!

Or let’s assume that if you got Case D, Which is no longer provided by FB officially, but even though I’m guiding this case too just for my readers’ safety,

So when you have successfully answered your security question, then you’ll be asked to choose a new password. So create a new strong password.

So after you choose a new password, you’ll get a message to your new email inbox of which you have submitted in Step5b. So in that message, there will be a link which will be given by Facebook to confirm your identity. So click it!!

So when you clicked that link, you have successfully recovered your account. Now all you need to do is, – to come back after 24hrs. After 24 hrs, just log in to your FB with new email id, new password!

So that’s it, guys. This is the whole process to recover a hacked facebook account. 🙂

Do check out the below FAQ once!!

Once you gain access to your facebook account, or luckily if you still have access at this moment, then you can check this part,

There’s an additional place where you can see the data or list of devices from which your facebook account has been accessed or logged in recently. Here you might find the hacker login device details, time, etc.

  • Go to your Account ‘Settings’ >> “Security and login” >> “Where you’re logged in” or you can even click here simply.

So under the section “Where you’re logged in”, you can see the information like Device name, Location, Time

Facebook-Where you're logged in

So by seeing this information, you can get a basic idea of whether your Facebook account has been hacked or not.
