How to Reset Facebook Password on the Desktop

The process to reset a Facebook password on the desktop is relatively straightforward.

  1. First, go to the login page and click “Forgot Password?” Under that tab, enter your email address or phone number associated with your account. 
  2. After this, you will be prompted to answer a security question or receive a one-time verification code to continue the resetting process. 
  3. Once you have answered the security question correctly or entered the correct verification code, you can create a new password for your account. It is important that you choose a strong and secure password that cannot easily be guessed by others. 
  4. Finally, after creating the new password, make sure to save it somewhere safe and convenient for future reference. 

Following these steps should allow users to successfully reset their Facebook password on the desktop. 

To ensure that their account remains secure, users should take additional steps to protect their accounts. These include regularly changing passwords, enabling two-factor authentication, and not sharing login information with anyone else. Moreover, it is important for users to be aware of any suspicious activities or notifications related to their account. If users encounter any unusual behavior regarding their Facebook account, they should contact customer service immediately to investigate further.

These extra precautions will help you keep your accounts safe and secure from malicious actors who may attempt to gain access without authorization.  


How to Reset Facebook Password From the Facebook App

If you are having trouble resetting your password from the Facebook app, there are a few things you can try. 

  • First, make sure that the app is up-to-date by checking for updates. If there is an update available, download it and then try resetting your password again.  
  • You can also try logging out of the app and closing it completely before trying again. To do this, open the Facebook app and tap on the menu icon in the upper-right corner (three horizontal lines). Scroll down to “Log Out” and select it. Then close the application by double-tapping on your home button and swiping up on the Facebook App Card to close it completely. Afterward, open it again and try resetting your password. 
  • Lastly, you can try uninstalling the app and then reinstalling it. To do this, press and hold on the Facebook icon until the icons start to shake. Tap on the X in the top-left corner of the icon to uninstall it. Once that’s complete, open up your App Store (or Play Store) and reinstall it from there. Then try resetting your password once again.  

If none of these steps work, you will need to contact Facebook support for further assistance with resetting your password via their website or mobile app.
