How to identify if your Facebook account is hacked?
- The devices or the locations, from which the account has been logged, are not recognizable (if it is not you). To verify it,
- Click at the top right of your Facebook account.
- Select ‘Settings’.
- Click ‘Security and login’ in the left column.
- Then check devices and locations from ‘Where you’re logged in’ as shown below.
- Your phone number / email / password has changed
- Your name / birthday / other personal information has changed
- Friend requests have been sent to people you don’t know
- Messages have been sent that you didn’t write
- Posts have been made that you didn’t create
Note: If the email associated with your Facebook account has changed, you can reverse this. When an email is changed, Facebook sends a message to the previous email account with a special link. You can click this link to reverse the email change and secure your account.
