With so many things in mind, it’s pretty common for a regular user to forget the most important things. Sometimes, we even forget our social media account passwords. If we talk about Facebook, the social networking site does offer multiple ways to reset a forgotten password.
On the Login page, if you click on the ‘Forgot Password’ option, you will be provided with many options to recover your account. Almost all recovery methods require access to your email account. However, what if you lose access to your email account or alternative contact option?
To deal with such issues, Facebook does offer you a security option known as ‘Trusted Contacts‘. On Facebook, you can set up a group of trusted contacts to rescue your profile in case you are locked out of your account.
