I think I'm going through Facebook withdrawal, for some reason I've been locked
out again, but this time after 5 days it hasn't come back.
Last Friday morning when I tried to open my FB page I got a message saying
they wanted to varify who I was, they wanted to send me a code via text
message, which they did. I put in the code and it didn't do anything, after
trying it a couple time I clicked on the button to ask for another code, it
sent one as before and as before when I inserted it it didn't do anything.
Now after 5 days it won't send any more codes and now of the ones sent
do anything AND there's NO WAY to ask anyone with FB for help.
After lots and LOTS of searching I havn't found any way to contact them
at all. I've found lots of phone numbers that want you to let them get
into your computer so they can FIX the problem as you've been hacked...
I guess I'll just have to give up on FB, I don't really want to start over like
I did a couple months ago when this happened the first time.
I keep hoping it'll magically just come back...
Sorry to vent, but I miss my FB feeds.

Phone numbers for companies and tools for avoiding waiting on hold, other contact information like live chat, tips, secrets, and ways to solve customer service problems faster and easier than ever.

This sounds like you are not on an actual facebook page. False pages appear correct, but never work.
Go to facebook.com and make sure you aren't being re-directed to another site.

Agree. This sounds like an attempt to get your password.

@Ron - Can you post the link of where you are going to sign in?

Doesn't look like a hack attempt.

I did find an article: https://www.facebook.com/help/community/question/?id=10201931598748522

Looks like a problem others have had...

You may have been hacked or cloned and FB's computers can not tell which account is which?
https://www.facebook.com/help/131719720 ... elpref=nfx
that page might help?

not sure if you will be able to see this page but there are a number of Ron Lawrence's. The ones with no location or other identifying markers are the ones that are fake. Some will steal your avatar to make it harder to tell.

What happens if you remove /checkpoint/block and press enter?

I've been on FB for 7 years, used it from various computers and have never been asked to verify who I was.
Has anyone else here encountered this?

FB ask my friend for his drivers license number early last summer.He only posts stuff about music and bands to his friends.Been away from FB since 2012 but I rejoined back up last summer and did not have to give FB personal info.I dont post much or hardly anything on FB.The same with Twitter.No way they are getting my DL or SS numbers.I dont trust them.

FB has been cracking down on users who go by a "handle"
They want to know your REAL name and who you are now.
My friend is a school teacher and she was using a nickname twist of her real name because she does not want her students or their parents ever tracking her down. She said she likes to curse and be bold and bitchy on line and doesn't want any crap back from the school.
But FB would not allow it any more. She was forced to use her full real name or leave FB.
She kicked and complained but she had no choice.
So now she sucked it up and cooperated.

I agree.They are cracking down and censoring like a bandit now.I signed up as Skip which is my nickname .Heck with them.They probably catch up to me when I start posting on there or post some hot topic opinions on there.Like anywhere else They dont want any of that on there.YouTube was bugging me awhile back about my user name since its the same as my user name on here and not my real name..

The whole idea of Facebook makes me want to vomit. Total strangers demanding personal information and expecting me to snap to attention like a buck Private--no thank you.

FB and anything else on the Internet is about as secure as a chicken coop; only a matter of time before hackers know everything about you, then make your life a living hell. Getting your financial and personal life back in order is about as easy as getting your virginity back. Don't tell me about their security safeguards; General Patten once said "Anything done by man can be undone by man."

If you want your relatives to know how fat you looked in a bathing suit on your last vacation, send them an email and attach a photo.

I don't get it, I see hundreds of posts on FB with handles.

Our local radio station has a FB page, our local Dominos Pizza has a FB page. There are hundreds more.
I doubt any of these will be taken down or forced to use a personal names unless businesses are exempt from these rules.

plus many others that go by a handle like "Cottage Life" or local "Buy And Sell" groups. These pages were all started by individual users.

They want to know who you are where you live in case of posting nonsense rubbish or threats on FB.Again Youtube and other social media are doing it too since things are getting out of hand..

Yes it's still possible.. but
You NOW have to supply FB with your drivers license and another piece of info or two proving your real name and address associated with any nick-name.

I think this is part of Gvt crack down on terrorists using fake names and recruiting people through social media.

Posting ANYTHING on Facebook can potentially come back to bite you. My brother's former girlfriend injured her knee on the job. While trying to get disability, her employer's lawyers attempted to use pictures of her at the beach, that were prior to the injury, against her disability case, claiming that she was faking. :evil:
