I got a message from Facebook saying that account recovery has started on my account. What is this and what do I do?
If you received an email from Facebook called Facebook Account Recovery and you think someone started this process without your permission, please take the following steps to secure your account:
- Immediately call any friends listed in the message and tell them to ignore any messages they receive.
- Secure your account by changing your password and reviewing recent login activity.
Note: Facebook will never email you asking for your password. If you have any questions about this, please visit the Security section of the Help Center.
