How to recover your Facebook password from your mobile phone
Recovering your Facebook password is a quick and easy procedure that you can put into practice using the social network app for Android and iPhone/iPad devices. All you have to do is take your mobile phone, choose the option to retrieve your password, locate your account and create a new access key.
Before giving you the detailed procedure to set up a new password for your profile, it will be useful to know that in order to prove that you are the owner of the account in question you must use the email address associated with it. In case you don't remember or can no longer access your email account, you'll be happy to know that you can recover your Facebook password without email, provided you have associated your account with a mobile phone number that is enabled to receive SMS messages.
After that, to recover your account password, launch the Facebook app and, on the login screen, click on Forgot your password? Then enter the email address or mobile phone number associated with your account in the Phone or email field, press the Find your account button and check the box next to the option you are interested in between Confirm by email and Confirm by SMS.
Regardless of your choice, then write down the 6-digit verification code that was sent to you by email or SMS, enter it in the Enter code field and tap the Continue button to prove that you are the owner of the Facebook account in question.
Now, choose whether to disconnect your account from all the other devices you are logged in from (Disconnect me from other devices) or stay logged in (Stay logged in), press the Continue button and, on the Create a new password screen, enter the new access key you intend to use to access your account in the Type a new password field. Finally, press the Continue button to complete the password recovery and log back into your account.
How to retrieve Facebook password from computer
If you prefer to recover your Facebook account password from your computer, log in to the main social networking page and select the option Don't remember how to access your account anymore? in the top right corner.
On the Find Your Account screen, enter your phone number in the Mobile Number field and click the Find button to locate your Facebook profile. If, however, you don't have the ability to recover your Facebook password via phone number because you haven't associated one with your account, you can simply use your email address.
Alternatively, on the main Facebook page, enter the phone number or email address associated with your account in the email or phone field at the top and enter the wrong password in the appropriate field. Then, click the Login button and choose the Forgotten Password? option on the new screen.
Regardless of the procedure, on the Reset your password page, choose the option of your interest between Send code via SMS and Send code via email and click the Continue button to receive a 6-digit verification code via SMS or email.
Then, enter the code in question in the Enter code field, press the Continue button to prove that you are the owner of the account in question and, in the new screen displayed, create a new access key for your account by entering it in the New password field. Finally, click the Continue button and you're done.
You should know that by pressing the Skip button, you can access your Facebook account without changing your password. By doing so, you can change it from your account settings in the Security and Access section, but to do so, you need to know your current password.
How to recover your Facebook password without email and number
If you can't remember your Facebook account password and no longer have access to either your email address or the phone number associated with it, you'll be happy to know that you can recover your Facebook password without email and number from some trusted contacts, provided you have already indicated them in the Security and Access section of your account.
If this is your case, log in to the Facebook main page and select the option Don't remember how to log in anymore? Enter the email address or phone number associated with your account in the Mobile Number field and press the Search button. At this point, select the option You can no longer access it? and I can't access my email and, on the screen How can we contact you? Enter an email address that you can access in the New email and Confirm new email fields.
Then, on the Continue button, select Show My Trusted Contacts, enter the first and last name of one of your trusted contacts in the Contact Name field and click the Confirm button to see the full list of your trusted friends. At this point, contact each person on the list, ask them to log in to facebook.com/recover and tell you the 4-digit code visible on the screen.
As soon as you have the security code of each friend you have listed as a trusted contact, enter it in the Insert code fields, click the Continue button and set a new password for your account, specifying it in the appropriate field. Finally, press the Continue button again, access the email address indicated above, locate the email sent by Facebook and click on the link contained within it, to access your account and complete the password recovery.
How to recover your stolen Facebook password
I beg your pardon? Are you afraid that someone has taken over your Facebook account and changed your password? If so, all you can do is report your account as a compromise and follow the instructions provided by Facebook to try to recover it.
If you no longer have access to your account and your intention is to recover your stolen Facebook password, go to the "Report compromised account" page on Facebook and click the My account has been compromised button.
Now enter the mobile phone number or email address associated with the account to be recovered in the Mobile Number field and press the Search button to find your account. On the new screen that appears, enter the last password associated with your account that you remember in the Current or previous password field and click Continue: if your account password has been changed, you will see the message You entered an obsolete password.
In this case, press the Protect my account button and choose one of the available options between Send code by email or Send code by SMS, to receive a verification code useful to set a new password for your account. Once you have made your choice, click the Continue button, retrieve the code that was sent to you, enter it in the Enter code field and press the Continue button again.
Finally, on the Choose a new password screen, enter a new password to use to access your Facebook account and click the Continue button to recover your stolen Facebook account. At this point, I recommend that you access your Account Settings, select the Security and Login and Where you logged in and end all active sessions.
