Thus Facebook has devised some methods to avoid misuse of the FB account providing complete security and privacy. Well, there are multiple security methods introduced, but still, two-factor authentication is the safest technique for the authentication of your account. Anyhow, let’s move on to our today’s topic.

Bypassing FB two-factor authentication

Undoubtedly, two-factor authentication is an incredible method to ensure the Facebook account’s security.  But some of the users reported an issue with this process. This issue can be resolved in time because this is quite common. So, here are four effective methods to help out yourself and those who are in search of the solution to this problem. Here are these methods:

#1: Reset the password of your Facebook account

  1. Click on Forgot Password and proceed.

#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
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.

#3: Using Security codes assigned by Facebook

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. In your Facebook account go to Settings & Privacy then click on Settings.
  2. Now, Click on Security and Login
  3. Under the section of Two-Factor Authentication, click on Use two-factor authentication. Here, you may need to re-enter your account’s password.
  4. Now, for Recovery Codes, click on Setup > Get Codes.
  5. If you have already set up recovery codes, click Manage and then Show Codes.

You can write down or print the 10 codes that appear on the screen. You can use each code once. If you lose or run out of the codes, you can request new codes by clicking Getting New Codes.

#4: Accessing Facebook Account from Recognized Devices

If you logged in to your Facebook account using another device or phone and are still able to access your account from a recognized location, then you can easily bypass the two-factor authentication. Once you gain access to your Facebook account, you can make the required changes to your account and resolve Facebook 2 step verification not working problems. The preferred method is to remove or turn off the authentication and reset your password.

    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.

      1. Jill says

        Same problem, and I can’t seem to reach the right support team. Can you provide a link?

        1. Samad Ali Khan says

          Sure, I let me check and reply.

    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!

    3. tasia says

      did you ever get into your account? I have the exact same problem…. 🙁 it’s been over month and I’ve changed my password a bunch but I don’t have the phone number associated with the account 3rd party authentication and I fill out form after form and get no response

    4. Cat says

      The same exact problem here. The hhkkrr set up the authentication code and supplied their number and email address & have deleted all of my contact info. I’ve submitted my government ID numerous times to prove my identity, still no help from FB after sending dozens of emails. As I’m reading all these comments, I don’t think anyone of us will retrieve our accounts back. If anyone has a success story… PLEASE POST IT. Since FB ignores us, we must try to help each other.

      1. Samad Ali Khan says

        You are right, now they do ignore us.

  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.

    1. Laura Garza says

      Did u ever find a solution to your Facebook account. Cuz I’m where you were at

  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.

    1. Noofacey!! says

      same here, did you manage to get thisfixed at all??

  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

    when I add my id, it says ” try again later :/

  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?

    1. Denver Sylvester says

      Me neither Im still awaiting response

      1. Samad Ali Khan says

        I do not know how they are saying, they are taking good care of their users… OMG

  20. Emmanuel says

    Does anyone succeed ???

    1. Noah Forrester says

      I lost my phone and have no other devices that I had logged into before because I lost my phone. I got a new one now but it still wants a 6 digit code even when I change my password so that doesn’t work obviously and I was able to recover pretty much all my accounts on my iPhone only one I’m not able to get into is Facebook and when I fill out there form of saying I need help it’ll say your process was denied or can’t go through I have same number and email but no idea where code gets sent to I’m just seriously locked out of my account and would love to beable To use it again

      1. Samad Ali Khan says

        You may wanna wait for a few (a week at least) then try again later. This is because you are trying to get into your account too many times on your device. Facebook may consider you as a bot, etc. So please wait for a week or two if possible then definitely you will get access back to your account.

      2. Queen says

        Did you get a solution? This is the same issue I am having and this is my business page.

  21. Denver Sylvester says

    Please assist. Whatever I do it keeps on saying authentication error incorrect code.

  24. Nhi says

    I no longer have access to the phone number I singed up for 2FA, and facebook logged me out of my account even though I updated my new number before it logged me out. When I tried to log back in, they asked for 2FA code that send to my old phone number that I have no access to, also I tried to uploaded my ID to confirm it’s me but they emailed me back say couldn’t verify and asked to upload ID again which I did and haven’t heard back from them in couple months now. What should I do?

    Thank you.

I managed to remove the hakers email address and change my password, but I keep getting asked to enter a 6 digit code for 2fa, but I am not receiving it on my phone like I used to.

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      You cannot access your account right?

  34. Morgan A Smith says

    My Facebook account was compromised. I was able to reset my password, but unfortunately, it’s asking for a 2FA code which the [hkr] enabled and I’m no longer receiving text messages because they changed the phone number. I have sent my ID to verify my profile, but no response. Any help to access my account would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      Are you doing this on the same computer or mobile device?

  35. Beena says

    I am not able to log in to my fb . I am getting codes on mobile n email and after entering both still asking for Fb code which I am not getting .
    Both the recover mobile n email is working n hav access . I forgot the password

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      This is because you are trying too many times to get the code. The only thing you can do is to wait for at least a week or two, then try again. I hope this will fix the issue.

  36. Jami l Schnoebelen says

    Please help me …I cannot get login in to facebook so i cannot get the code generator and no one at FB will help.

  37. leen says

    Same problem, someone ha**ed into my account, I tried resetting the password but obviously it keeps getting into the 2FA loop which I obviously don’t have. I submitted an ID to claim my account, haven’t heard from FB back. What terrible customer service.

    I log in from my usual PC, yet it keeps saying I log in from a new browser.

  38. Kacey says

    The account was ha**** – email and password changed. I was somehow able to get my email added back onto the account and change my password but I can’t remove the ha**ers email and there is no way to bypass the auth code they are requesting! I didn’t set that up, my phone number is still linked to the account because I can search for it that way but I’m getting no code. Beyond frustrating

    1. Nadine says

      Having the same issue as many others. I was h****d and they changed everything. There is no way to get pass the 2-factor code. It’s incredibly frustrating! On top of that my account has been completely hidden from others so I can’t even save my pictures from another account.

      1. Samad Ali Khan says

        Look at Facebook, such a big platform, look at the users having the same issue. I don’t know why don’t take care of it

  39. Heather says

    I have the same problem as above!! FB support s*cks, they need a live or chat support. The account was h**ked and 2 factor was turned on, hackers changed phone number so I am not getting the code. I have emailed FB multiple times with the info & ID and only get a password reset!! I was able to change the password but it doesn’t matter because I’m not receiving the code! I just want to get back into my account!! Please help!!

  40. Mian mudassar says

    My Facebook account was disabled which link with Instagram account

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      You can recover your Facebook account via Instagram.

  41. Pri says

    same issue here– i am assuming no one has figured out a way yet?

  42. P.Srikanth Reddy says

    How can we get our facebook lost and turned on 2 factor authention and logged out of all devices and lost even the mail given for the facebook.

    1. Samad Ali Khan says

      The reason Facebook gives the 2FA option is to enable the enhanced security for your account, just not to lose it. If you don’t care and lost it, it’s your fault. However, the only thing in your case you can do is to contact the support team. For your information, they might never reply. But your account is old enough you may get a reply within a week.
