What To Do About a Forgotten Facebook Password and Email

Forgot your Facebook password? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

At the rate that people are forgetting their passwords, it may as well be a competitive sport. About 21% of users forget their password in as soon as two weeks, while 25% forget at least one password once a day.

In many cases, it’s easy to reset the password – as long as they still have their username or email. But what if you don’t have your email, too?

That’s going to be a problem, but it’s not unsolvable. Keep on reading to learn how you can recover your account with a forgotten Facebook password and email.

Dealing With a Forgotten Facebook Password and Email

Have a forgotten Facebook password and email? Don’t panic yet – we’ll walk you through the different processes of recovering your account.

1. Reset Your Password

This tip only applies if you still have access to your email or phone registered on your account. Facebook will give you a code that allows you to reset your password through your email or phone. If not, proceed to the end of this tip.

First, click the link that says “Forgot account?” It should be right underneath the boxes where you enter your username and password.

It will take you to the Find Your Account page. It will ask for the email or phone number connected to the account you’re trying to access. You can also use your username (the one at the end of the link to your profile) to find your account. 

When it finds your account, it will give you a list of recovery options. You can ask for it to send you a recovery code via email or SMS, for instance.

Once you’ve chosen your preferred method, take note of the code you’ll receive. You’ll enter it on the next page to regain access.

Alternatively, you can click a link in the email that allows you to change your password.

Either way, it’s strongly recommended you change your password to something you’re more likely to remember next time.

If you’ve realized you don’t have access to any of the email addresses and phone numbers associated with your account, click “Didn’t get a code?” It will take you back to the previous screen, where you can then click “No longer have access to these?”

2. Ask Your Trusted Contacts for the Code

Did you set up trusted contacts? If so, you can get a code from them you can use to access your account.

When you click the “No longer have access to these?” link, you’ll get taken to a page requesting your new email address or phone number that you can access. Facebook says they’ll use this to contact you further about recovering your account.

After this, you can click “Reveal my Trusted Contacts.” These are the contacts you assigned previously; so if don’t have any assigned, you can proceed to the next tip.

If you have, Facebook will ask you to name at least one of the three to five contacts you chose. You also have to send them all a recovery link, which will give them a code once they click it.

Each friend will give you a code, but you only need three to recover your account. When you enter three correct codes, you will gain access to your Facebook account.

3. Regain Access to Your Email Account

When you don’t have Trusted Contacts, Facebook won’t give you the option to reset your password by answering security questions anymore. When you click the “No longer have access to these?” link, you’ll only see the message that reads “No Email Access” followed by an apology because they won’t be able to verify your identity without it.

In other words, you’re in tough luck – you won’t be able to access it another way. That’s why regaining access to the email account is worth trying. 

This tip only works if you still remember your email address. In that case, head on over to your email ad provider and try to log in. It has its own set of procedures for people who forgot their password. 

If that’s successful, then go back to tip no. 1, then change your email, password, and phone number in your settings.

4. Report Your Compromised Account

If someone – who’s not you – is using your account to scam people or post spam while you can’t access it, report it as compromised.

Open Facebook’s “Hacked” or “Report Compromised Account” page. Then, click the “Compromised” button.

It will also ask for the email address or phone number associated with your account so Facebook can find it. When it does, you can enter your current or any old password if the hacker changed it.

Click “Continue,” and it will take you to a page asking you what made you think your account’s hacked. It has a list of options; choose the most appropriate one and click the “Continue” button.

Facebook will then urge you to change your password and do other steps to keep your account secure. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Other Ways to Recover Your Email and Password

Aside from the official ways you can recover your account through Facebook, you can try to reclaim your email address and/or password via other means.

For one, check your browser. You may have enabled it to remember your login credentials on websites. If you did, you’re in luck because it will show you both your username and password.

First, go to the Settings page, then go to the Privacy and Security (or your browser’s version of it). Find the section that stores all your login info and then click the button that allows you to view the password. 

If all else fails, you can try to contact Facebook support directly to explain your situation. Don’t place too much hope in that, though.

Do This After Getting Back Access to Your Account

If any of these worked, then good for you. However, you now have the responsibility of securing your account so this won’t happen again. Update your email address, phone number, and password.

Set up your Trusted Contacts, too, so if you have again a forgotten Facebook password and email, you’ll have an easier time then.

    Don’t give up without a fight, even if you’ve lost money. I always thought it couldn’t be done, but I kept trying even after I’d lost a lot of money since I couldn’t afford to lose it all. I really don’t want to go into detail, but if you’re going through this and you’ve been duped of hard-earned money you can get your money back because I did. BLU is a LEGIT-HACK**

    Once I made up my mind to contact Wizard James through email, I was not sure if he could help me. I said to myself, just give it a try.
    To my surprise, Wizard James finally found my right password and sent the remaining BTC to my other wallet after paying himself the agreed 20% fee.

    For those out there who can’t access your wallet, do not waste your time looking for fake recovery agents. I would strongly recommend Wizard James. I was thankful to still get the 80% rather than nothing.
    Thank you very much Wizard James for everything!! I might not know you personally but I am sure you will have a better life in the future. May God bless you always, with good health and happiness. His personal contact is WhatsApp:+1 863 254 2842

    I lost access to my Crypto when the wallet service I used went offline permanently. For 2 long years I wondered whether I could still access those funds as everything I tried, failed. Within 24 hours of putting Wizard James on the case, control of my funds was returned to me. Communication was secure, to the point and always promptly responded to. His integrity is of the highest order. He did exactly what he said he would & charged exactly what he would. I would highly recommend the amazing Wizard James service provides.

    Cryptocurrency has made many rich and at the same time made so many broke and desperate, hence, when one loses his/her Crypto currency, it can be a devastating thing to experience. The fact that it is almost impossible to recover a Stolen or lost Crypto coin hurts more than anything. When a person gets scammed of their money while investing in a crypto currency platform the only thing they can think of is how to report the company and get back their money. Please everyone should be careful where they invest their money. Few weeks ago I was referred to Wizard James and I was able to get back all my dogecoin that was Stolen. If you want to recover your cryptocurrency that was stolen or lost I recommend you to Wizard James. He is reliable and trustworthy. You can also contact him via I wish you all the best

    For sometime now, I have been a victim of infidelity and I can tell you vividly that it hurts. The worst thing is if you have no evidence to prove your sanity. Even though I have discouraged my friends severally about hiring a hacker to catch their cheating partners, I resorted to hiring one before my divorce. My partner hid her affair too well and I had no evidence to prove her infidelity to the court. So I had to go back to my friend who I’m grateful for. He referred me to Wizard James, a hacker who he has worked with. I told him the service I wanted from him and why I needed it. His services were topnotch which made working with him very easy. He got me everything I needed within 4 hours and it was amazing. I never knew technology has been so advanced that I can see everything I wanted at the tip of my fingers, with his exceptional service, I was able to convince my lawyer why I should get a divorce and start a new life.

    My humble regards to everyone reading comments on this platform and a great thanks to the admin who made this medium a lively one whereby everyone can share an opinion, I am Mrs. Caroline Dolores, from Montana, United States. I’m a nurse by profession, I had a serious health issue that took me 8 months to get back to work, during this period of eight months I came across an advert with a lot of good comments under the trading broker platform. I was very interested so I decided to contact the trading platform and invest with them, after my first deposit I was told there is an increase in buying stocks so I had to send another money and this whole thing continued for a good 6 months. before I could realize I was already bankrupt when I discovered that I have been scammed for a total sum of $357,890, I tried to get some recommended hackers online but I ended up getting scammed of an additional $35k, it hurts me so much, I already gave it up but then I came in contact with or who I also message directly via whatsapp on: +31685248506 Telegram:  +31685248506 and he responded to me urgently and helped me to get back all my funds, everything was sent to me at once. Albert Gonzalez wizard proves to me that scammed crypto can be recovered. All thanks to Albert Gonzalez wizard.

    Wizard James was fantastic in helping me recover my BTC back after I lost so many coins to the con-artists who claimed to be recovery experts. After providing all the relative information and necessary requirements to Wizard James specialist recovery agent, out of 2.8BTC which was stolen from my wallet account, a total of 1.8138 BTC was finally recovered . I was so glad, I was able to recover this much after losing even more to the scammers. I really don’t know what best name fits this guy and his team. So go ahead, contact ( if you are in such a situation seeking to recover any form of online cryptocurrency scam.

    I have had a blockchain wallet which I had lost access to since 2015. So I gave Wizard James a try. I sent him an email but honestly, I wasn’t hoping for anything. Obviously trust is always a concern when doing something like this. After a series of data gathering and verifications, he started working on my case. He followed up with updates. I have never been happier to leave a review than right now. Not only was he able to recover the wallet that I couldn’t get into from 8 years ago, but he did it so quickly and let me know the moment that he succeeded via email, when he completed the recovery very late in the evening too. I’m so excited to announce today that access to my wallet was restored and I now have my BTC sent to me. Thank you, I will definitely be recommending you to anyone that I know that needs this type of service. You can contact him via WhatsApp +1 (863) 254-2842

    I lost about $325,000 USDT to a fake BitbyBit trading platform few weeks back after I got lured into the trading platform with an intent of earning 10% profit daily trading on the platform. This period was a hell of a time for me as I could hardly pay my bills and get my feeding routine done. I had to confide in my close friend who then introduced me to this crypto recovery team with the best recovery software at MICHAEL CALCE WIZARD SOFTWARE HACKING GROUP. I contacted them and they were able to completely recover my stolen digital assets with ease . It was indeed an amazing service, this will forever be the best service I got on the internet. I strongly recommend this team to anyone going through similar situation with their investment or fund theft to speedily lookup this team for the best appropriate solution so as to avoid getting lured by other fake recovery agents.

    Usually I don’t trust any website, but I did not have any choice because I needed my bitcoins that I had been scammed. So I decided to go online and I read many testimonials about Wizard James. I kept on searching about Wizard James’ performance and made sure that he is the right person to help me find my stolen bitcoins.
    I contacted him via email, explained to him my dilemma and he explained to me the cost of such services and estimated time for a possible resolution. A week later he sent me an email stating that he was successful. I could not believe it. I emailed him and asked if he could please send it to my wallet address and he did that promptly. Every single coin was accounted for. I am honestly at a loss for words. Thank you for your honesty and your beyond professional service and business.
    One can email him at for the same services. Thank you once again Wizard James.

    I’m a grateful soul till date because when I lost access to my wallet around August this year, the wallet had my investment of 145,000 USD in ETH. In my research for a solution, I read reviews on Wizard James who can easily recover as he also specializes in bitcoin wallet recovery tools and high power efficiency on crypto. The specific assistance offered to me varied as it depends on the reasons your coins are inaccessible, but in every case, having experts like Wizard James working with you is a key to recovery and investment of your coins. It was very beneficial for me, he knows different combinations of on-chain and off-chain analytics and techniques to fix your stolen crypto. He made use of modern block chain forensic tools to map the activity of scammers who ripped my wallet through my email. I’m recommending the most secure and reliable crypto recovery service that can help you. He is more than capable of solving many common problems concerning different coins. today is the best in town, he is an expert at tracking stolen crypto funds.

    I was devastated and traumatized when I lost access to my phone in early January of this year after accessing an unknown website that appeared on my screen as an advertisement. I was quite concerned since my email account, which contains a lot of personal information including bank passcodes, had been compromised. I was able to get access restored thanks to Sean’s recovery after speaking with him, telling him about my experience, and giving him the information he needed for rapid solution in a matter of hours. Since I couldn’t access my email following our first session, I must admit that I was initially dubious about this process.

    Hello everyone, I’m James Walton from North Dakota, I saw an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrency and I took it, not aware of the risk involved.

    I was a victim like many others and these crypto con men stole $883,000 worth of Ethereum and Bitcoin from me. They got access to my wallet and stole all my crypto assets.
    I thought I had lost everything for good until I saw a pop-up while scrolling through the internet about Cipherspy Cyber Security Service, a team of cyber security experts with years of experience in the cyber security community.

    Brian K Palmer - April 1, 2024

    My name is Brian K Palmer, and just a few months ago, I was living a crypto nightmare. I’d been lured into a seemingly foolproof investment scheme, convinced I was putting my money into a reputable platform. However, when I tried to withdraw my funds, all communication ceased, and I realized I’d been scammed. Bitcoin, Ethereum, USDT – everything, totalling $120,000, was gone. Feeling defeated and hopeless, I started scouring the web for solutions. Stories of successful crypto recovery seemed scarce, and the fear of encountering another scam loomed large. Then, I came across Linux Cyber Security.What initially drew me in was their detailed explanation of the recovery process. They outlined their approach to tracing transactions on the blockchain, emphasizing that success wasn’t guaranteed but that they would leverage their expertise to maximize the chances. Positive online reviews, though limited, also instilled some confidence. Reaching out was the first step. Linux Cyber Security’s team was professional and empathetic throughout. They meticulously documented the details of the fraudulent platform and the transactions involved. There were upfront costs associated with their service, but they were clearly explained and only payable upon successful recovery. Visit Office website: .The entire process took about two nerve-wracking weeks. Linux Cyber Security kept me updated on their progress, and finally, the news arrived – they had managed to recover a significant portion of my lost funds! Over $85,000 in Bitcoin and Ethereum were back in my wallet. Words can’t express the relief and gratitude I felt. Linux Cyber Security’s service was a lifesaver. While some of my investment was lost, getting back such a substantial amount made a world of difference. Their dedication and meticulous approach were truly commendable. Office contact: info@linuxcybersecurity.comMy experience may not be the same for everyone. The world of cryptocurrency recovery is complex, and there are undoubtedly unscrupulous actors out there. If you find yourself in a similar situation, don’t give up hope. Linux Cyber Security may be a potential solution, but remember to do your due diligence before entrusting them with your case.
