A Facebook account is like a virtual getaway destination you can always go to whenever you want to take a break from your work or study or just hang out with other people and know some exciting updates you are interested in. Most of the time, our Facebook accounts are just a few clicks away. All you need is your phone or PC, an internet connection, and your email address and password.
The ease and convenience with which Facebook lets its users access their accounts can be measured by the intensity of shock, confusion, and frustration you feel on realizing you have been locked out of your account. And when that happens, all your Facebook experience can come tumbling down within seconds.
Usually, in these cases of lockouts, Facebook asks you to confirm your identity by identifying your Facebook friends or providing your date of birth. Clearly, both of these methods are pretty easy to apply and do not cause any issues. The problem arises when the platform asks for your identity proof to verify your identity.
We know your identity proof might not be something you want to share with Facebook. But what if you don’t see any other option to confirm your identity? That’s what we will talk about in the present blog.
Read on as we discover ways to help you bypass the lock and unlock your account without ID Proof.
How to Unlock Facebook Account Without ID Proof
There can be many ways Facebook might ask you to confirm your identity. Initially, the platform can just ask for a code sent to your mobile or let you ask your friends for help. Sometimes, you can also see the option to log in using your Google account (linked with your Facebook account) to confirm your identity.
Asking you to show your identity proof is usually the last resort to confirm your identity. So, if you log into Facebook and see the option to upload an ID proof, you need to look for other ways to unlock your account. This is how you can do that:
Method 1: Log in via a code
Step 1: First off, make sure to use a device you have used before to log into your Facebook account.
Step 2: Open a browser and go to https://facebook.com/login/identify.
Step 3: Enter the mobile number linked to your account and tap on Search.
Or, if you want to use your email address or full account name instead of your phone, tap on Search by your mobile number instead. Enter your email address or full name, and tap on Search.
Step 4: Choose the correct account from the list. If you had entered the account name to search for your account, you might see a long list of the same and similar names. If this happens, you can choose your account by looking at the profile picture.
Step 5: You will be asked to enter the password. If you cannot enter your password, tap on Try Another Way.
Step 6: Now, you will see your masked email address and mobile number to receive a verification code. Select the option where you want to receive the code, and tap on Continue.
Step 7: Enter the captcha text, and hit Continue.
Step 8: You will receive a six-digit code in your email address or phone number. Enter the code and tap on Continue.
Step 9: Create a new password for your account. Tap on Next. You will be logged into your account.
