Why is my Facebook account temporarily unavailable?

pierce211 May 15, 2012

My Facebook was compromised and a Yahoo email address was added. I don’t have a Yahoo email. When I click ‘forgot password’, then click ‘no longer have access to these’, then type in my email address under ‘how can we reach you’, then it takes me to ‘Recover Your Account Through Friends’.

Smooth sailing so far, but then every time the next screen says “Sorry, your account is temporarily unavailable”. Any thoughts?

I tried contacting Facebook. Obviously no luck.

      It might be due to maintenance work.Try accessing it after sometime.

      Are you saying your daughter can get onto Facebook or can you log into your account from her computer?

      What happens when you try to log in? Is there an error message or does it say your account is unavailable?

      What browser are you using?

    Hello, most times facebook implements this when they have reason to believe there is suspicious activity in your account. In your case, if a new email address was added that would classify as suspicious specially if the ip addresses/usernames in use are not the same.

      mine does the same thing. only thing i have on facebook is an old email i cannot access anymore. It's been over a month now. I wonder how long temporary is? they must think they'er real special with this friend thing to change your password that DOESN"T WORK. whatever happened to security questions when you create an account? i hope fb's stocks crash and burn. i can't even delete my account now! no customer service at all.
