my facebook page was hacked...

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

my facebook page was hacked...

Postby Peter Kropotkin » Thu Jan 21, 2021 1:57 am

not that I go on facebook that often, but I woke up this morning all excited by
biden's inauguration and first thing I see is my page has been hacked.....
so, dam... It is basically the only way I communicate with my sisters and brother......
We are spread out over the country from FLA to IL to Min, to here in California.....

and I have a sister's birthday coming up and how am I going to wish her a happy birthday
without any long drawn out conversation that I don't want to have with her... facebook was
great for that....do my social duty and move on with my day.... dam, this is quite annoying....

peter you should delete facebook.

K: well now that is the thing.. I can't get into my page to delete it..
you have to be on facebook to delete face book and I can't get into facebook.....

my temporary solution is to notify my family and then just not rejoin it for a long while....

ive never had facebook, but i imagine that you should be able to reset your password or something. it's a cesspool of misinformation and filth.

As long as the the email account associated with your Facebook account hasn't also been hacked then you can reset your password and get Facebook access again, like Mr R said. Try: login > forgot password.

Once you get Facebook access again, first thing you should immediately do is go to: settings & privacy > settings > security and login. Expand the "Where You're Logged In" list, and at the very bottom of the list click on "Log Out Of All Sessions" to ensure whoever might have had access to your account gets kicked off and won't have the new password to log back in. Good luck. Consider two-factor authentication for important accounts.
