1. Recover Your Account

Try your luck and see if you are able to log into your Facebook account. If you are successful, then move on to the next step.

If you fail to login, then it means the hacker has changed your password. In this case, you can try to recover your account by clicking on ‘Forgot Your Password?’ and following some simple steps.

If the hacker has changed the recovery options or you had never set recovery information then you need to access this page and tell Facebook that your account has been compromised. Facebook will help you regain access of your account.


2. Change Your Password

Now that you have successfully accessed your account, the first thing to do is change your account’s password. The hacker must have guessed or broke your password to access your Facebook account, so it is strongly recommended to change it ASAP.


The intelligent thing to do now is to come up with a stronger password than before. Plus, the wisest thing to do is to have different passwords for all your accounts like email, twitter, banking, or any other.

But if you use one password on multiple accounts then it is recommended that you must change all the passwords and only set one password for one account. It ensures that if one of your accounts gets hacked, the rest of the accounts won’t be compromised.

3. Set or Change Your Account Recovery Information

If the hacker didn’t change your password, then most probably he must have changed or noted down your recovery method so that he can access it later. Even if the hacker had changed your password and you didn’t set any recovery information, this is the right time to do so.

No matter what the case is, the best thing for you to do is to change your Facebook account recovery information right now, before the hacker tries the same trick again!


P.S. look for any changes in recovery information to see if there is anything that doesn’t look familiar to you!

4. Let your friends and family know about the hack

Now that you have changed your password and recovery information, it’s time to lessen the damage that has been done. It is most likely that your friends and loved ones already know that your account was hacked, if they know you. But still, you need to inform everyone about the incident so that your reputation is no longer at stake.

Now that you have followed these steps, you are out of danger for a while. However, you must remain extra cautious from now on; once bitten twice shy. There are a few things that you can do to ramp up your security.

  • Make longer and stronger passwords
  • Stay away from phishing or scam emails
  • Avoid clicking on suspicious links, even if they are sent by your friends
  • Avoid using open Wi-Fi hotspots or use them with PureVPN connected on your device
  • Use two factor authentication

These are just a few tips that can help you avoid getting hacked. Hopefully, you will not fall victim again. But even if you do, you need to stay calm and follow the steps that we have written for your help. Stay safe!
