Recently Facebook introduced Trusted Contacts feature to give an extra level security to your Facebook Account. Whether you’ve forgotten your password or your Facebook Account “Hacked”, you can set the help of your three to five Facebook Friends whom you trust to regain access.
What are Facebook Trusted Contacts?
Trusted contacts are the users you can reach out if you have any problem in login or getting your Facebook Account. For example, if you have forgotten your password and even can’t get back to your email to reset the password.
We recommend every Facebook user to set their trusted contacts to avoid any future problem in getting the access of your Facebook account back.
Whom Should You Choose As Your Trusted Contacts?
We recommend you to choose the friends who can be easily called for help if there’s any problem with your Facebook Account. And in case when you are adding more than 3 friends to trusted contact list, you will need a private code from each contact before you can get access to your account. Remember each person can get the code only by accessing Facebook. So, only choose the friends who use Fb often and get back to you as soon as possible.
