    Firstly, try to reset the password by following the steps mentioned in the article link below -

    http://www.techshortly.com/2011/12/how-to-recover-hacked-facebook-account.html

    Make your password strong enough by using combination of words,letters and special characters.It can also be made much stronger by using upper and lower case letters too.

    then,if password resetting doesn't works for you,submit account compromised form by following the steps mentioned in the article link below -

      I recommend clicking the 'Forgot your password?' link in the top right corner of the Facebook front page. This will guide you through steps to recover your account. You can also report your account as being compromised. But maybe you can still recover it, if the person that hacked it didn't change some of your profile information.

     My facebook and email have been hacked. They have also changed my security question answers. I have tried everything. Nothing is working... HELP!!

    • Tina

      Tobias,

      did you really try all the steps that Facebook provides to recover your account? For example, have you registered more than one email address with Facebook and did you try to re-gain access using all of them? Or did you try to enter the names of friends to identify yourself?

      If you did all that, go to the Help section and ask the question how you can re-gain access to your account mentioning your user ID and your current / valid email address. You won't get a direct answer, but if you ask the question over and over, someone might take notice and at least terminate the account or help you restore it.

      Sswarnima,

      did you try the suggestions above? You can regain access to your Facebook account if your email wasn't changed, if you can answer questions about your friends etc. Please take the 'forgot password' route and report that your account was possibly hacked to Facebook.

      Sdeepika,

      your only hope is to get in touch with Facebook and report that the account was hijacked.

      Check out this page in the Facebook Help Center.

    • Susendeep Dutta
      April 20, 2012 at 3:25 pm

      Then inform all of your friends present in your Facebook profile to unfriend you and tell them that the account is been hacked.Create a new account , setup password using combination of words,letters and special characters.and take all necessary steps to make sure that your account remains same from hackers by -

      Sdeepika,

      please follow the advice given above. The incident has to be reported to Facebook.

      Your friend might be able to get the account back by reporting a 'forgotten password' and changing it using his eMail address or any secondary eMail address he registered with Facebook. Maybe the hackers didn't change it. Good luck!

    I think my facebook password was hack because few days ago, my friends list was 190 and now it consistently going down. In 3-4 days my friends list is 127. I have taken all the measures suggested by everyone.

    • Tina
      December 28, 2010 at 7:23 pm

      I hope you changed your password. Is it possible that people delete you from their friends list? Or that their accounts have been suspended?

      Did you write a general message to your friends or post on your wall what your suspicion is and that you don't want to defriend anyone? At least that would alert your remaining friends and avoid hard feelings.

      If this problem continues, feel free to post a new question. You might get some more input from the general crowd.

      If the suggestions above don't help, you should post a new question. Please describe what has happened to your Facebook account, i.e. how do you think it was hacked, what symptoms do you see, can you still access it, was it blocked etc.

          Try resetting your password here: https://www.facebook.com/recover.php It seems like your account has been deleted on deactivated (or possibly your account has been suspended)

           Its a case that someone has gained access to your account password and is trying to defame you or else it might have been caused due to a malicious Facebook app which is doing such activities.

          http://lightpointsecurity.com/content/guide-to-removing-malicious-apps-from-your-facebook-account

          Never try to click on those videos and any other links you suspect.Its better to install Internet security suites from companies like Avast,AVG and Kaspersky to prevent any such incidents in future.

    • Susendeep Dutta
      April 20, 2012 at 2:54 pm

      If both your email and Facebook account has been hacked then the reason might be that you were using same password for both.All you have to do is reset the password with stronger one of both the accounts and try to get full control of it.

    When you say that your Facebook ID has been hacked, I thought you mean that your unique ID has been hacked which has a number like 138904136133471.

    Make sure you tick in Account Settings --> Account security, that is ticked so you know every device that will access your Facebook profile. If you see one that you don't know, delete it and change your password.

    If you still have access to the account, follow the steps that Ryan has suggested above and you will be back on your feet. If, however, you no longer have access to your account, make a report to the Facebook team at the link below:

    First - it may not have been hacked, you may have clicked that "keep me logged in" on the login page at a public (or semi-public) location. First, obviously, change your password to something very difficult for someone to guess. Second, the thing I tell everyone who has had this happen is to *always* make sure that box is never selected, particularly if they are checking Facebook at a library or Internet cafe. The next person who gets on the computer and goes to Facebook will instantly be on your account if you don't.
