How to Contact Facebook Support For Account Recovery

Lost access to your Facebook account and looking to recover it as soon as possible? You might want to reach out to Facebook support, but this is a complicated process. While an excellent platform for marketing, Facebook’s support system is not easily reachable, especially when you are looking to recover your account as soon as possible.

But don’t worry! Follow this guide to contact Facebook support when your account is hacked or compromised.

How to Contact Facebook Support For Account Recovery

There are three ways to contact Facebook support for account recovery.

1. Via Email

Facebook provides email support for various issues. However, there is no single email address. Instead, the platform offers a wide range of emails for different problems.

  • disabled@fb.com: If you want to recover hacked or disabled accounts or reset the password, email this address.
  • appeals@fb.com: You can use this email to send an appeal for suspended accounts. If you want to appeal for blocked content, this is the email address to choose.

If you are a verified Facebook user, the platform will give you priority support. Consider changing your email on Facebook if you think the former has been compromised. 

2. Via Phone

Unfortunately, Facebook does not provide phone assistance for account recovery or other issues. Though you will find 650-308-7300 and 650-543-4800 on the net, these numbers are of little use. When you call these numbers, you will get pre-recorded messages. You will eventually be asked to go to the online Help Center.

3. Via Chat

If you are a Facebook Business user or a brand or account that uses Facebook advertisement, you can use the Facebook Live Chat option for help.

Firstly, you need to go to Facebook for business site. After that, choose the Get Help, followed by Live Chat.

Reaching Facebook Support Is Not Easy

Even though Facebook offers email contacts for those with issues with their account, the process is still cumbersome. The absence of live chat support for general consumers is disappointing, and email support takes time. It becomes even more annoying if you have pages and groups under your account. 

Once you have recovered your account, follow these tips to prevent your Facebook account from getting hacked again.
