3.       Facebook will find your profile. Identify your profile and enter email address or phone number. Click to Continue.
4.       You will get a recovery code to the recovery option chosen by you.
5.       Enter the code in the required field and click on Continue.
6.       Create a new password.

Use email change notification

If the hacker has changed your email address, then you will get an email from Facebook in your previous email address. Look at that notification regarding email change. If your email id is also hacked, then go to the option “if you did not do this, please secure your account”. Click on it to get the option to secure your account.

Some quick fixes to recover Facebook account
·         Take a device which you have been using for Facebook login.
·         Try to recover your Facebook password from that device.
·         Once your device is identified by Facebook, you will be allowed to change the password without verification.
·         Use a familiar Wi-Fi. This will increase your chances to get back the Facebook access.
·         Identity Verification is an extended service from Facebook. Identity verification allows the user to confirm the identity with the help of government issued ID. Once you send your ID, Facebook gives you response within 1-3 days.
