Something scary happened to me a few weeks ago.
I was crying when my Facebook account has been disabled by Facebook.
I must say, they have very strong security algorithms which work more than enough to make Facebook scam-free. I was just trying to change my email address of facebook account.
Because the email address no longer I have access to that. I changed my email address, it requires phone verification. There were two phone number of mine is added on my facebook account.
I am using both on my phone. So, there was nothing to worry about. I was waiting for a confirmation code that should be sent from Facebook.
I got first code very late before receiving that, I already clicked on Resend Confirmation Code… Mistakenly, I deleted the first one code I received just after clicking on Resend Confirmation Code.
This was the mistake I did…
I didn’t receive any code after that… Waited a lot and tried again by clicking Resend Confirmation Code.
But no code sent to me…
I tried to contact them through their twitter handle…
Here is the exact message I sent them…
I have sent them a screenshot of the error page…
I was not lucky, It didn’t work for me… I didn’t get any reply even so far.
I was worried because of all the Facebook pages of my blogs and personal are created using the same Facebook account.
AND, even I used to log in through the same account on games I play like PUBG, Call Of Duty and some other apps too.
Here is the error screen I faced…
I had tried many times after waiting for some hours for each code.
BUT, I didn’t receive even a single code.
So, from the Facebook Point of view. I was using this feature in a way it wasn’t meant to be used. But I didn’t receive any code from them except the first one that was received late and deleted by me mistakenly.
That was the reason they disabled my account.
BUT the good part is, after a week I recovered my facebook account and now it is working.
So, I am showing the exact way I used to unlock my account which you can follow to unlock your Facebook account.
