If your Facebook account has been hacked, here are some of the things you can do. If your account has not yet been hacked, there are things you can do to better protect your account.
This is a very common scenario that happens to Facebook users almost every day. It could be a nefarious link that you clicked at some point or even a phishing email that you opened. Whatever the cause, a hacker somehow gained access to your Facebook password and started contacting all of your Facebook family and friends to have them click on a malicious link as well.
Fortunately, there are many things you can do to get your Facebook account back if it has been hacked. How successful you will be with these options largely depends on how soon you have detected hacking activity.
Reset your email password immediately
There are two ways hackers will try to prevent you from accessing your Facebook account. The first, and usually the first thing people notice, is that they will change their Facebook password.
But what hackers really want to do, if they can, is change the password for your email account that is connected to your Facebook account. The reason for this is that it will prevent you from requesting a Facebook password reset.
When a hacker has gained access to your Facebook account, they do not have access to your email account. Therefore, one of the first things you’ll want to do is reset your email account password to ensure that hackers remain blocked.
To do this in Gmail, simply open your Gmail settings, select Accounts and Import and Change Password.
