(To set it up for an account you still have access to: 1. Go to Settings (down arrow). 2. Go to your Security and Login Settings. 3. Scroll down to Choose 3 to 5 friends to contact if you get locked out and click Edit. 43. Click Choose friends and follow the on-screen instructions.)
While Facebook makes deleting an old account difficult, thanks to the proliferation of Facebook account spoofing, deleting a fake account is far easier. So one of our clever readers told us in the comments he reported his old account as fake and it was quickly deleted. Another reader also had success going this route.
I reached out to Facebook and they have confirmed that, for security reasons, they will only allow you to delete your account if you can access it through one of the two official methods above (or our "unofficial" workaround). Those photos of your ex-relationships, nights of drunken bacchanalia and really, really bad choices of hairstyle are going to live on forever in the Facebook universe.
Since these aren't officially sanctioned means of getting your account deleted, we don't know what your likelihood of success will be. If you go this route, let us know how you fare in the comments below.
My account been taken and the person has controlled it for over two years. Everytime I try to regain it or get a new facebook account he reports it as a fake account. I Can prove who I am Why cant you just help me.
When asked to re-enter your birth date, they only have a drop down for the year which goes back to 1956. Needless to say this is a problem for anyone born in 1955 or earlier. It seems to me that this is an effort by Facebook to hold onto a lot of accounts where people are deceased or simply are old and have forgotten their password. I suggest there are probably millions of old accounts out there that just help facebook gather more money from advertizers but which no longer represent anyone.

That said, you might not have a strong and unique Facebook password. Maybe a reshuffled spelling of your name is the key to your account. But if it's not strong, there's a chance that someone could be trying to breach your Facebook account. In which case, it's probably time to change your password.
Need to find someone's Facebook password because of an emergency? You may be able to recover it using Facebook's Trusted Contacts feature. This feature allows you to access someone's Facebook password and log into their account. It only works in certain circumstances though, which we'll go over below. Keep reading to learn how to retrieve someone's Facebook password using their email and the Trusted Contacts feature.
Once logged into a personal account, you then have the option to create a business page. The management of the business page also happens through your personal account. You must be logged in to your personal account before you can post, edit, or take any other action on your business page.
You need access to your Facebook account in order to deactivate or permanently delete it. If you forgot your login password, Facebook offers several recovery methods aimed at resetting your password and regaining access to your account. Once in, you can close your account temporarily or permanently.
Clicking the "Forgot Your Password" link on Facebook's home screen presents several recovery options. The simplest method is to reset the password using your email address. If you don't have access to that email account anymore, you can choose to answer security questions or have trusted contacts get your security code for you.
Once in your account, click the gear icon, select "Settings," click "Security," and then choose "Deactivate Your Account." However, this is only a temporary solution; the next time you log in to your account, it becomes active again. To permanently close your account, visit the Delete My Account page (link in Resources) and request permanent deletion.
Facebook requires you to enter your account password in order to delete it. However, you do not remember it, nor have you written it anywhere. Thankfully, there are tested walk arounds to permanently deleting your old Facebook account without a password.
Following the steps to regain access to the old account and delete it properly may not be easy. However, there is an unorthodox shortcut to doing this. Reporting your old account as fake can help you delete it quickly. Since the concept of digital footprint naturally contributes to the birth of many fake accounts, the deletion of fake accounts is expected in the Facebook metaverse.
Going straight to Facebook customer support is the route you should go if all else fails. By following these steps, you can delete your Facebook account permanently without a password and without waiting for 14 days.
By Default your Instagram credentials will be the same as your Facebook credentials. If you changed your Facebook password after creating your Instagram, maybe your password is still the old password. The best you can do is try until you get it right.
To get separate password you have to create new one for Instagram.First login to your Instagram account as you login regular with Facebook.Go to your Instagram profile and click on Edit Profile.Enter the Email address you wish to use for login (if there is no email address associated with the account, and make sure you have access of this email), set a Username (if you have not set any, you can use your username instead of email id with password to login your account).Now go to and tap Forgot? next to Password on the log in screen to reset your password:
The Administration has not provided any guidance on how this information will be used. Will a protest against the current US trade and immigration policies be considered offensive by the visa officer and result in a visa denial? Will messages critical of or making fun of the Administration be grounds for visa denial? We simply do not know. We have already heard that social media accounts containing records of marijuana use or promotion might have been used as grounds for visa denial, even though the use is entirely legal in the country of the applicant.
Heads-ups!! Almost every account is being cloned. Your picture and your name are used to create a new facebook account (they don't need your password to do this). They want your friends to add them to their facebook account. Your friends will think that it's you and accept your request. From that point on they can write what they want under your name. I have NO plans to open a new account. Please DO NOT accept a 2nd friend request from "me". Copy this message on your wall.
WARNING!! Some hackers are now taking your profile picture and your name and creating a new FB account. They then ask your friends to add them. Your friends think it is you, so they accept. From that moment on they can say and post whatever they want under your name. Please don't accept a second friendship request from me, I have only one account. Copy this on your wall to keep others informed.
New scam on Facebook ... There is now "Pirates" who copy your profile picture and asks for friendship in your name with a new account. Do not accept any requests in my name since this is my only account ... Thanks to all ... Copy this post to the wall ... Recommended to all your contacts
Please be careful: some hackers have found something new. They take your profile picture and your name and create a new FB account. Then they ask your friends to add them. Your friends think it is you, so they accept. From that moment on they can say and post whatever they want under your name. Please don't accept a second friendship demand from me, I have only one account.
It is true in a general sense that some scammers have engaged in Facebook cloning, a process in which the scammer creates a new Facebook account using a profile picture and similar name taken from an existing user, then sends out friend requests which appear to originate from that user. (The requests often claim the sender has just set up a new Facebook account or was locked out of his previous account.) The end purpose of such scams varies: it may be to send Facebook users links to malicious websites that propagate malware, to perpetrate phishing schemes, or to collect personal information from users that can be used for identity theft.
However, contrary to the example texts reproduced above, Facebook cloning is not a "new scam," nor is there any evidence that its occurrence has increased greatly in recent days. (It also isn't a "hack," as the scam requires no special privileges nor breaking in to any Facebook accounts to accomplish.) 2b1af7f3a8
