You can imagine my Surprise when I attempted to get my Facebook account two days ago and was prompted with a screen stating that my account was locked out because there were too many unauthorized attempts to access my accounts. All is not lost if you Log-in to your account and find the same screen I got. I was worried about other reports I have that use the identical user name and same password. The first screen essentially states that Facebook should confirm that you are the appropriate user for the account. So you must click on a button to proceed to the next display. The next screen you will see will show you the online address and the location of where somebody was attempting to access your accounts. In my case, I was shown a small pin on a Google map in Auckland, New Zealand. Facebook asked if this could have been me trying to log-in to my account from this place. Well, since I have never been to New Zealand it could not possibly have been me. So, I clicked the button that said something along the lines of the is not me.
Next, I was given the Option of how I want to identify myself as the proper owner of this account. I could either pick a choice of sending a confirmation email to the email account on file and then return to enter the activation code, or establish a set of images of my friends. The first option was pretty much never even an option. If my account was hacked, how could I know whether the individual had already reset the email account along with the activation code could visit the knuckle head in New Zealand. I opted to try option two and identify images of my friends.
It must be noted that you will be shown your friends pictures in their account rather than pictures of these on your account. If you do not feel you could recognize friends and family from a photo lineup then you want to pick the first option of this activation code. I was led through a Series of nine distinct friends and I managed to recognize all of them. Facebook allowed me access to my accounts and I was immediately prompted to change my password. After changing my password, I had been given directions by Facebook to change the password on any other accounts which I might have that use the same username and password. That was the whole procedure. So be careful and I’d suggest changing your password once a month to be secure. Navigate here www.faceaccess.net for further information.
