Why has my Facebook account been disabled and what can I do about it?

I tried to access my Facebook account this morning, but when I typed in my password it said my account had been disabled. This came as a shock to me, and I now cannot contact my family and friends or access the pictures I had on my account.

I have not been given any reason for this and I feel this has to be a mistake. I have emailed Facebook 6 or 7 times, without reply, asking why my account has been disabled. Could you please try and help me to sort this matter out as I’m not really the best educated person when it comes to computers or the Internet. Thanks for your time!

    Facebook is a criminal organisation like youtube is, they will do whatever they like to please themselves, so if you really must be with them just open another account.

      Makeuseof can't do anything for enabling your account.If your account is permanently deleted,then you need to create a new one.

      Facebook account gets temporarily disabled and permanently deleted.It might be the situation that you might had violated some Terms of Facebook so facing such blockage.

    my facebook account is not opening.it says that i had installed some software due to which it is not opening, but i dont remember installing any software recently.
    it asks me to secure my account..there is a bar called SECURE ACCOUNT.when i select it, it is asking to download McAfee and scan my account.here is what it shows..

    It looks like you downloaded software that is affecting your Facebook account and showing you unauthorized ads. It's common for people to be tricked into running programs that offer features that aren't available on Facebook, such as adding custom themes or seeing who has viewed your profile.

    What is Adware?

    This software will show you spammy ads that aren't approved by Facebook. They can also introduce security vulnerabilities, slow down your computer, and clutter up your news feed with ads so that you end up missing content from your friends.

    If you would rather continue using this software, you may stop this process by clicking on "Log Out" in the upper right hand corner. Note that you won't be able to use Facebook from the computer where this software is installed.

    please help me in recovering from this problem

    thanks for your time!

      possibly your windows is infected.
      boot to safe mode and scan windows with malwarebutes antimalware, superantispyware and clamwin. Then clean registry with CCleaner.

    I have been trying to explain what happened on my facebook acct. but no one has answered me. I am not very good on computers i really just play games on facebook and read about what my friends and family are up to. There was a question that came up when i was on my facebook that said i had 2 accts. did i want them to fix it, so being nieve i said yes cause i figured maybe someone had made an acct. on my facebook that i didn't know about so i said yes i would like it fixed not knowing i had done anything wrong. I only have one acct. on facebook and thats the honest truth i. Please reinstate my facebook acct. for me as i really enjoy the games, plus i have a lot of family photos that i wouldn't want to lose. Thankyou kindly Debby Crosbie

    Hello, that seems to happen a lot. It is mostly due to suspicious activities or entries in your facebook account. Keep in mind that this means suspicious from the facebook point of view. Sometimes even if you post a link where suspected activity has happened in the past, it can trigger this. Have you tried the following addresses?

    ya it happens... if you are correct with your facebook login id and password, you are done. actually sometimes when you try to login with some application from your cell phone (such as Nimbuzz), facebook sometimes fail to identify the apllication. and so facebook suspects that someone else was trying to acess your account even it is you. and so when you login with your correct id and password, facebooks shows that your profile is blocked. it will show the location from where your account was tried to access. Donot fear of any unknown location because it depends on your ip address of your computer and it keeps on changing. Approve the location. Now enter the name of the device which you entered while you logged in to your facebook account for the last time. You should enter the correct one. If it is approved, it will again ask the name of your new device (your pc). Its not a password, so enter any simple name, may be your name or the name of your browser such that you can remember it well. go on... will be activated.. best of luck!!!

    Have you tired login through you mobile number?
    perhaps Facebppk is doing some maintenance so you have to be patient like 24hrs sometime before able to get your account back.
    http://www.facebook.com/help/contact/?id=287306364658247

    also clean your browser, or try another internet browser and another pc.
    call your family ask them to connect to facebook; locate your name and see if there is an email address that is used to connect.

Another friend told me it happened to her too, but she got her account back 2-3 days later. I don't know what I've done and they disabled me. Did you get ur account back?
