#2: Using third-party for login to Facebook

If you have already logged in via your PC or computer. Then it’s good luck. Facebook won’t ask you login into your account via those 2FA codes. Moreover, first, you will need to disable or turn off the existing 2FA authenticator app. That will remove the current authenticator app and you will need to add another third-party authenticator app for MS Authenticator. Don’t worry about I am going to explain everything below.

So, If you fail to bypass the two-factor authentication by using the above method. You can use this alternative method. Here is how to do it:

  1. Install a third-party application on your device you normally use to access Facebook.
  2. Click on Account (at the top-right corner)
  3. Now Click on Setting & privacy
  4. Then click on Security and login
  5. Now scroll down to “Use two-factor authentication” under the “Two-Factor Authentication” option and click Edit.
  6. Now click the Turn Off button, once the page reloads then follow the below step.
  7. Install the MS Authenticator app.
  8. Then click on the Use Authentication App button under the Authentication app option when you are asked to choose your security method.
  9. Next, there will be a message box showing either scan the QR code using your authentication app or enter the given code into your authentication app.
  10. Then click on the Continue button.
  11. Now enter the confirmation code you received.
Disable the Authenticator app then add another to bypass 2FA on FB

Now the two-factor authentication process using a third-party authentication app is completed, whenever someone tries to access your account you will receive a code in the app you used for authentication and the person wouldn’t be successful while getting into your account.

Besides, if you opted for two-factor authentication for your Facebook account, then you are offered ten recovery codes that you can use for accessing your account if you have lost access to your linked phone number. By using this method, you can easily bypass your account and gain access to your account in time. If you are using the new version of Facebook, then follow these steps to get codes:

  1. Karen Senior says

    Someone accessed my account the other day and, I think, turned on the 2 factor authentication. I passed the security check and can change my password all day long. But every time I try to log in, it is asking for a 6 digit code. I did NOT set this up, so no clue how to get a code. I cannot get into FB to change my settings. I keep emailing Facebook and filling out their help forms, but no response yet. Appreciate any help you can provide.

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      In your case, talking to their support is the only solution.

    2. Morgan Watts says

      Im having the same troubles right now and i urgently need to get back into it because my business is based from there! Tried everything i can so far. No luck yet!

  2. Mike says

    I am having the same exact problem as Karen Senior and have yet to find a solution of hear of anyone successfully gaining access to their account again. Facebook really needs to work on their customer support

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      Can you please explain your problem here, I will try my best to find another solution for you. Thanks.

  3. Roger says

    I have the same issue. Facebook asks for 2 factor authentication which as not set up by me. There is no way to access my account to disable this or link a 3rd party code generator App. and I am not receiving the text being sent by FB.

  4. David West says

    I am having the same problem. I can recover my account and change password, but I am not able to receive the Two Factor Authentication code to log in. I have sent at least 2 dozen emails over the last 2 weeks. Not a single response from Facebook customer support. Definitely the worst customer support of any business I have ever dealt with thus far.

  5. Hollivan Cody says

    Looks like we’re all having the same issue. Smh. Someone gained access to my account a couple weeks ago. I recovered my account but every time I login, it takes me to the 6 digit code verification. I think I may have just lost my account. Because I’ve sent in dozens of emails and requests for help and have yet to get a response. I wish the two step verification could go to my email or phone. Facebook’s customer support is terrible.

  6. Juffer says

    How can I contact you? I’ve tried many steps already and contact facebook support to help me bypass TFA. I didn’t receive any code when I am about to login but I received code when I reset my password. However, after I reset my password still it brings me to enter my login code which I don’t receive.

  7. Debra says

    I’m also having the same problem. Someone hacked my account and I can’t get into it anymore. I have sent documents to FB to verify my identify, but I get an immediate email saying my information doesn’t match my account and they can’t help me. I am able to change my password but can’t receive the 2FA code. Sent tons of emails to FB over the last 4 weeks. No response!! I cannot believe that they have no phone support or online chat. Worst customer support ever!!!

  8. Danielle Silverstein says

    Literally having the exact same problem as everyone above. Seems to be a major issue with facebook right now. Can’t find a solution anywhere and sent my id many times to facebook for verification. No word yet.

  9. Brittani Gilliam says

    HELP! I’m desperate to get my account back! I have tried changing my password, I have tried logging in family member accounts to recover my account. I have tried to log in to every possible location I have been and it’s a no go. I apparently don’t have SMS to get codes. I didn’t setup an account on an authenticator app so I can’t get those codes either. I’m at a loss at this point. Can someone please help?

  10. Achene says

    Can you give an example of a third party app I can install to access Facebook? I don’t understand that part of your steps.

  11. Marlene says

    Same issue for me. Have been trying everything to get into my account. Keep coming up against requiring authentication code and I cannot get it. Trying everything. Please help!!!!!

  12. Steve says

    Same problem as everyone else but I see no resolutions. Essentially unable to reach Facebook. If anyone has found a solution or can offer advice, it would be appreciated if they would post an update. Thanks!

  13. BJ says

    Similar problem here. Someone is going into my account and I’m not being notified of unrecognized logins like I’m signed up for. I’m wondering if it’s because some of the sign ins are from the same type phone I have. The set up I have shows I don’t have to use the code when signed in from “Facebook for Android” or “Chrome on Windows.” Seems like this should give more information specific to MY phone and My computer.

  14. Tammy Tokheim says

    having the same problem. how can I get a code if I cant log in to my fb

  15. David Light says

    Hey! I’m having the same problem as all the people above ! Someone accessed my account, I was able to change my password but I can’t log in as I need a 6 digit code that isn’t being sent to me. I fill out the identity form and get an error. I hit “resend code” and I get an error. Everything I try tells me I need a code, but the code never comes ! I’ve emailed Facebook security but can’t seem to find anyway to contact a real human for customer support.

  16. Jykira Baker says

  17. Tara Blankinship says

    Same problem. My account was hacked. The hacker set up 2FA. I have followed facebook steps and was able to reconnect my email, confirm my identity and reset my password. I am still locked out. My business page is linked to my account and has been greatly impacted by this issue. Please Help

  18. Lisa Bruneau says

    I am having the same problem as everyone else. I was able to submit my ID on Monday morning and received a response on Tuesday evening with instructions on how to log on. When I followed the instructions I ended up back in the constant loop, asking me to change my password then to enter my code. I cannot get a code because I cannot log on. I am now unable to submit my ID – Facebook just gives an error. I’m so frustrated!!!

  19. Iris Grayson says

    My problem is exactly the same as those mentioned before. My facebook account was hacked a month ago. I assume by someone in Vietnam because I still get messages from Facebook in Vietnamese. I can change my password, but I get asked to complete the 2-factor authentication. I have also sent multiple pleas for help and sent several IDs, but still no response. Has anyone received any solution?
