I got hacked and password hacked and email address phone number has been deactivated how do you get it back? ?

There is a facebook form for you. https://www.facebook.com/help/203305893040179

So someone has to enter their name, password, wait for a text, then put in the code, then delete the text... just to login? Um no. How about everyone hold facebook accountable for these things instead of the users having to jump through extra hoops to use the service. The company saves money not spending it on more security tech, so the users are pretty much working for the company for free because they are spending their personal time doing extra things on behalf of the company.

I was looking into mewe.com - I thought their approach to privacy was refreshing, so maybe that's a good place to be instead of Facebook.

If you use two factor authencation on facebook they will use your number for advertising. Shortly after i setup two factor auth i started getting scam calls and tons of telemarketing calls on my new cellphone. DO NOT USE 2FA ON FACEBOOK OR THEY WILL USE IT TO SPAM YOU WITH ADS. I had to purchase a call blocker. This makes me very angry they do that even if they number is private on facebook they still sell it to others. (JUST QUIT FACEBOOK ITS NOT WORTH IT)

I followed your guide earlier this year to delete my account. I miss your tv show, I’m a longtime fan! Very helpful content

What should I do if I absolutely refuse to give FB my mobile number? Is there a different way to use 2-factor id?
Gigi Embrechts (1 month ago)
I travel and can not rely on my phone for the Two factor authorization. Any other ideas?
dottotech (1 month ago)
Use Google Authenticator. I am releasing a video on it this week.

Not on Facebook. Interesting though.

Switch to Minds.com and gab.ai . I have deleted my Fakebook account!

50 million people accounts in Facebook hacking and stolen their data, identify to here that is too sad.this is not at all good.

Thanks for the heads up I did as you suggested and secured up my accounts. You are so awesome!!! Love to you and your sweetie
M Greenwood (1 month ago)
I've been thinking about deleting facebook for a while, but several groups I'm involved in solely use FB for announcements and event planning. I feel trapped into keeping my FB account. :(
Tamara Johll (1 month ago)
Just leave. You are not trapped.

Dumped Fakebook years ago. It's a cesspool. When I did have it, I never gave it one bit of accurate information about myself. I do understand that for many people around the world Facebook is a lifeline to family and friends, and for them it is just fine. Big problem with it is that many of those millions of fans believe stuff they see on Facebook.
Horia Neagu (1 month ago)
I fully agree with both the sentiment and the advice of this video, so congrats on another great one! However, I have to point out a major caveat: although the importance of security and privacy settings cannot be stated enough, this time, the breach happened due to a vulnerability in the access token of the "view as" feature. In other words, even a strong password and healthy security habits won't make a difference in this instance. It's just a security flaw in a feature that is built into the platform itself.

I don't use FB much anymore, but the other thing I like to do security wise, is have facebook send me encrypted PGP email notifications. If everyone did this, phishing would be zero effective.
Keith Morley (1 month ago)
Great Video! I was thinking, how sad it is that we have to go through these steps for security. Please do this. I know it is a pain to do this but we live in a cruel world and some people want to destroy us!

Steve... do your followers even use FB for things other than business? FB IS A JOKE which gives the hoi polloi something to do. I see your followers as thinking people with above average intelligence and full lives. I think the title of Sherry Turkle's book illustrates very well what most of FB is about, Alone Together. I am also beginning to wonder if it is even a good platform for advertising any longer when you can advertise on the blogs of Influencers and other way more targeted places online.
dottotech (1 month ago)
I think it is still relevant, but you make good points, it has certainly lost it's lustre.
Andrew Beach (1 month ago)
I've been using code generator from FB app. That takes some finding if you haven't done it before.
Lisa Adler (1 month ago)
What sensitive information is on Facebook tho? I mean seriously, selfies, memes, and pictures of our kids that's what we're worried about losing our privacy about. It just doesn't seem like a big issue, tbh.

2:03 2FA is good, but I highly recommend using Authy for it and not SMS. 4:10 I might do that, but don't Spotify users need a Facebook account to use it?
Pipe2DevNull (1 month ago)
I use Spotify without having a Facebook account.
Mr. Ken (1 month ago)
I don't use Facebook or any other social media fad. From the beginning I always felt that was something would come back to bite people in buttocks, big time. Time after time I've been proven right. Facebook on folks, it's your funeral.
James Wright (1 month ago)
Steve, again I don't have a cell phone, I don't think I can use two factor identification. Does this mean I am out of luck safety wise?
James Wright (1 month ago)
Thanks, Steve, this makes me feel a bit more secure in general.
dottotech (1 month ago)
You can, take a look at this, https://mashable.com/2018/05/23/facebook-2fa-authenticator-app/#5nBsHo920gqQ

I didn't get a warning from FB but I changed my password just to be safe and activated the 'Help from friends' facility. Hope I never need it but it seems like a good idea!

i'm guessing having a deactivated account doesn't exclude me from this breach?

I have never had a Facebook account , but I am on Instagram. I figure it’s only a matter of time before Facebook ruins it.
Nailhed 66 (1 month ago)
Zoran Djokovic My Instagram account is not linked to a Facebook account,so I believe that there should be a firewall. But this is Facebook we’re dealing with ... just a matter of time before they completely ruin Instagram.
Sherry Trainor (1 month ago)
Great I will try to do this right now.

Always remember that once you post it's out there forever and it can come back years later to bite you!!
Mark Knowlton (1 month ago)
Thank you Steve, not just for this video but the other ones that are in use because of you, no account has the same password, each account that allows me to has 2FA, and thank you in advance LastPass for how easy you make it for me to change all of my passwords. Steve your education has me smiling today and at a zero stress level.

Be cautious if you travel using two factors authentication with your cell phone. When I went from North America to Europe I changed my sim. When you change your sim you loose the ability to receive text message from the service you are trying to use.

dottotech  DOn't forget that FB is hsaring your phone # that you use for SMS 2FA with advertisers. Thanks FB for shooting yourself in the other foot as well. Sure endears you to your users.

Heriberto Mendoza (1 month ago)
Steve, Thank You for this informative video, as always. I closed my facebook account and i have removed it from my android phone. Im feeling better already. Too many variables happening at Facebook, that's why i decided to steer clear from it all together.

You warned us about this a few months ago in a webinar (where you talked about WHY you aren’t going to be using FB as a platform anymore) Love your intuition Steve ;)
Shannon Pilatzke (1 month ago)
EqualizerPG I apologize, in that Steve is clearly using FB... just not as a top preference .
dottotech (1 month ago)
I never left Facebook, but I did create the video on how to do so so some may have assumed I was leaving.

Shannon Pilatzke yet we see him log in to Facebook. And he mentions features he hasn’t seen before.
