FB Forgot Password: If you have several passwords and you don’t use a password manager you can have issues remembering them.If you’ve forgotten your Facebook password, you cant recover the password,but it’s possible to recover your account by resetting your password to something else.
If you’ve forgotten your Facebook password, or someone else changed it without your permission, Facebook offers a pretty simple way to recover. We are referring to recovering your account if you totally forgot your password
Recovering Your Password
After you have gone though an unsuccessful login attempt, Facebook should show you a “Recover Your Account” button under the password field.Click that.
Enter the email address you used to sign up for your Facebook account, and then click the “Search” button.
Facebook shows you on the results screen if it finds a match. Click the “This Is My Account” button.
Depending on the type of information you provided when you set up your account (and the security settings you configured), you may be presented with different options to reset your password. Choose a preferred method, and then click the “Continue” button.
Have Facebook Send a Code by Email
After you have received the code in the email you used to set up your account, you can click the “Click here to change your password” link, and then copy the reset code and paste it into the Facebook site. It’s easier to just click the “Change Password” button in the email and bypass the whole code entry process.
Either of the options will take you to the same place, that is a screen prompting you to type a new password. Choose a strong password, and then click the “Continue” button.
If you connected your Gmail account to Facebook when you signed up, alternatively you also can log into Google to gain immediate access to reset your Facebook password. This bypasses the process of confirmation email and code being sent to your email address at all.
A pop-up window will open with a secure login screen for your Gmail account. Click on the account you signed up with.
On the next screen, type your Google password, and click the “Next” button.
Type the new Facebook password you want to use, and then click the “Continue” button.
Resetting Active Sessions After Changing Your Password
Facebook gives you the option to log out of active sessions on other devices or stay logged in after you have changed your password.
If you just forgot your password and believe your account is safe, and don’t want to go through the process of signing in again on other devices, go ahead and choose the “Stay Logged In” option.
If you aren’t convinced of the security of your account, choose the “Log Out Of Other Devices” option instead. All current sessions on your PC, phone, tablet, and so on will be signed out, and you’ll need to sign in on them again using your new password.
Next, you’ll be taken through a couple steps to help secure your account. If you suspect that someone may have compromised your details in the account, Facebook can check to see whether there have been any recent changes to your basic information (name, profile picture, and so on), installed apps, and your activity.
Click “Go To News Feed” and you’re done. Setting up Better Security
Other than just using a standard password, Facebook provides multiple options for keeping your account safe. You can set up two-factor authentication, specify authorized devices on which you can sign in, a name trusted contacts and more. Reviewing these settings can really help keep your Facebook account secure.
