How To Use Your Trusted Friends Regain Access To Your Facebook Account

Have you ever been locked out of your Facebook account or forgot your password and there is no other way to regain access to your Facebook account? I'm sure a handful of people face this problem on daily basis.
Well, if you have ever been in this condition I have a good news for you! Facebook has introduced a measure which you can take to seamlessly regain access to your Facebook account in any case when you forget your password.

It's called "Trusted Contacts!"

As its name implies, Trusted Contacts is a Facebook privacy measure that lets you choose 3 to 5 good and trusted friends you can easily contact on phone any time you forget your password. If you can't get into your account, Facebook will give each of your trusted friends that you've chosen a special piece of a security code which you can use to regain access to your account when you contact them.

These trusted friends will be able to help you regain access to your account by sending you a private code which Facebook will send only to them.

It's very simple to set up and Facebook team gave a clear step by step guide on how to set it up.

How to Set Up Trusted Contacts on your Facebook Account

Note: This feature can only be set up when you still have access to your account. It's a security measure which means you must have access to your account to set it up for future use.

Step 1: Log into your account and then go to More to choose friends to contact if you get locked out.

Step 2: Tap Account Settings and then Security and Login

Step 3: Tap Choose 3 to 5 friends to contact if you get locked out

Step 4: Tap Choose Friends and then choose 3 to 5 good friends you know you can easily contact by phone. Facebook will send each of your chosen friends a special piece of a security code.

Step 5: Go ahead and contact your friends for each piece of the code to get back into your account.
Step 6: Now use that code to log back into your account. (Only you can log in with the code – your friends can’t.)

You can set this up using either your PC or mobile phone, the process is the same in both.
