How can I recover my Facebook account if I forgot the password for my alternative email address?

Susan R December 14, 2013

I forgot my password for the account. Also I forgot my password for my alternate email address, which allows me to reset the password on the primary account.

Can I get the information to reset my password somehow?

      This "recovery tool" is suspicious. It claims that it can get your passwords for online accounts, but it doesn't end up lockiing out the accounts, therefore, it cannot be attempting to log in at all using dictionary or brute-force attacks. If this is the case, it can only be searching your local hard drive for your password, trying to use cookies to re-initiate a session or automaticaly log you in (which the website and your browser tend to try behind the scenes), looking for them in the registry, or the most likely option of going through the "saved password" lists of all installed web browsers. If the required information is really in any of these places, you shouldn't even need this tool to get them; their associated programs which put them there should be able to retrieve and use them (although you may not be able to see them).

      As for the Windows user accounts and wifi network passwords, those can be easily retrieved with free tools; you don't need to pay these guys $10 to get them.
