Why am I not getting a code from Facebook to reset my password?

by Jhon D. Travel & technology information

When you have accounts on several social media handles, it is normal to forget the password of any one of them. Although resetting a password can be a cumbersome task, with Facebook, it is not very difficult. You can simply use the 'Forgotten Password?' option and can proceed for Reset Facebook account password feature. However, if you do not get the login code, read ahead to learn how to get it.

How to recover your Facebook account: Resetting your Facebook password?

  • Visit Facebook and click on the 'Forgotten Account' option.
  • Enter the phone number or email associated with your account and press the Search button.
  • Select whether you want the reset code on the mail or the number associated with your Facebook account and press the Continue button.
  • Facebook will send you the reset code on the medium you choose.
  • Enter the code and press Continue.
  • Make a new password and press Continue.

What are the possible reasons due to which you do not receive a confirmation code from Facebook?

If even after entering the email address or phone number you are not getting a reset password code, this can be due to the following reasons:

  • You might have entered the wrong credentials (email or phone number).
  • You have not signed into your email account.
  • There can be network issues in your area.
  • The servers at Facebook can be down due to which you can observe Facebook not sending login code at that moment.
  • What to do when you are not receiving a reset code from Facebook?
  • Make sure you have entered the correct number or email id linked to your account.
  • Check the 'Spam' and 'Junk' folders in your email account for the Facebook verification code.
  • Make sure your device is properly connected to an internet connection.
  • Reset your password with the help of your trusted contacts
  • Visit the login page and click on the 'Forgotten Account' option.

Proceed for the account recovery option

Now do not choose any option (number or email address). Instead, select the option saying 'No longer have access to these?'

  • Enter the email address you previously added to your Facebook account.
  • Select the 'This is my account' option when you see your profile picture.
  • If you have set up the 'Trusted Contacts', ask them to help you in resetting your password. Enter the full names of any three contacts and select them to make Facebook send them the codes. You only need three verification codes.
  • Enter the codes shared by your contacts and press Continue.
  • You can now reset your password easily.

Through the above methods, you can easily reset your Facebook password. If you still face the Facebook password reset code not working issue, you can reset it by answering the Facebook security question. You can also contact the Facebook Help center for more information.
