Any way to "unlock" a Facebook account?

8 replies
I have a Facebook account with 5000 friends (most of them I honestly don't know).

Today my account was blocked:

For security reasons your account is temporarily locked

The ask me different step, and one of the is to identify my "friends" in a series of sets of pictures.

Does anyone know how to get through that? Any other way to get it unlocked? I have 3 CPA campaigns running there as test...

The pages I created with this account are still live, but I just can't login to my account.

Thank you

    This was a security feature introduced two years ago. Every time you logged into your Facebook account through a different IP (out of the country for example) it asked me to identify my friends as well.
    These measurements were placed as a security feature so no one can go in and take someone else account (like hackers).

    My advise is follow the precedure they have in place and if you're account is legit you'll have no problem unlocking it.

    Cheers

    I think you have already crossed limits of Facebook friends which is 5000. So now make a new account and be careful about this. Nowdays all social networking sites have increased security. They are going to delete fake accounts.

      How many fake accounts will be deleted from all the social media sites? I am telling 90% of the female accounts in facebook are fake. If they start deleting those accounts, the number of facebook profiles will be decreased in great number which will become a threat for the popularity of facebook. Everday, thousands of fake accounts are being created there. How many of them they will delete?

        I maybe have a solution.
        Go on google in the image section.
        Now you can make a drag and drop from the Facebook picture you have to reconize, to the google image box.
        Google will try to make a reverse research on the picture and will tell you everypage where you can see this picture. And Facebook will sort in the first for sure for 99% of people in the world (except for people with a great personal website with exactly the same picture)

        I don't have a locked account on Facebook right now, so just try and tell me, if it's working.

    It appears that your account has been detected as spam and suspicious because of a deceptive activity which violates Facebook's policies. I have actually encountered the same issue before when I had been adding friends that I did not know. The good thing was that Facebook gave me a week to add another friends again, otherwise, if I still continue adding friends, they will block my account. In your case, perhaps you haven't noticed this warning when you were adding more friends. Or, Facebook's spam detection system has hit your account.
    The best way to unlock this is to submit an appeal to them. To do so, just click Help at the bottom right of the Facebook page. In the Help center page, select Manage Your Account > Disabled Accounts > My personal Facebook account is disabled.
    If the account won't be unlocked after a week, then you just have to constantly send the appeal or email the help desk. Best of luck...

    Maybe you can try this service, unlock friend photoverification which provide by livelyservice.com. But they only do for their programmer user recently. Try to contact their support team for help. Good luck for you.

  • Seems like no way to unblock unless if the account is blocked temporarily. You will need to create new account with real name and do not send too much of the friend requests at once.
