The steps to recover a hacked Facebook account aren’t the same as resetting your Facebook account password. If your Facebook account is hacked it’s possible that the hacker would have changed your account phone number and email to receive a password reset confirmation code. However, Facebook provides a different process to recover a hacked Facebook account by answering a few questions.

  • Go to on your web browser
  • Click on “My account is compromised.” This allows you to report to Facebook that your account has been hijacked or taken over by an unknown user.”
