Can I Change Facebook Password without Email or Phone Number?
I won’t play tricks, In short, you simply can not reset your Facebook password if you don’t have access to the email or phone number you have used to sign up for Facebook. But you can try to:
- Get access to your email, contact your email provider, and provide information to get your email account back.
- Try to get your phone number back, go to the nearest franchise, and ask them to recover your lost phone number.
- Ask your trusted contact (if you have added any).
- Try some of these troubleshooting tips on Facebook.
- Also, make sure that your account is not disabled.
Moreover, there is no such way to get someone else or your own account back. My suggestion is to stop looking for such a solution because no one can get your back until you the hack Facebook database which is impossible for a normal person.
Alternatively, you can try to get help from the Facebook help and support team. But trust me it will take months and a year in some situations because they reply to your one message after two or three weeks. I have tried it that is why I am telling you and will suggest you stop wasting your time looking for such a solution. If you really think you need a Facebook account, create a new one, and start over.
If a Facebook account really belongs to you, no matter what, you can recover. Why I am saying this, is because while recovering or resetting your forgotten password, Facebook will give more alternative ways you can follow. For example, photo identification, friends’ profile identification, etc.
