Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms on the planet. However, just like everything tech, the platform also runs into a few bugs and glitches from time to time. Those glitches can be even more annoying if you’re facing them when trying to log into the site.

In this article, we’re taking a look at how to report login issues on Facebook, as well as giving you a few solutions to try out if you can’t log in.

How to report a login issue on Facebook?

Reporting any login issues on the platform is as simple as heading over to this Facebook login link and following the instructions given on the page.

Not only will this report to Facebook that you’re having login issues, but the instructions on the page will also help you get access to your account again.

For safety reasons, it’s best to follow this procedure on a phone or computer that you’ve previously used to log in to Facebook, as this will help the system identify your device and IP details. However, if you don’t happen to have one around, you can still give it a shot.

If you’re having trouble logging in to the website, try following either of these screenshots to see if you can solve your problem. 

Reset your password

One of the first things you should do is reset your password and log in with the new one. To reset your password, first, find out the account page using this link. Once you’re there, type the email address, mobile number, full name or the username associated with your account and click search. After that, you’ll be taken through the password resetting process.

The Facebook account identifying page.

Do keep in mind that Facebook won’t allow you to use the same phone number you used for two-factor authentication to reset your password for security reasons. You’re going to need to use an alternate phone number or email address already linked to your account to follow through.

Note that you can only reset your password a certain number of times each day. Once you’ve hit this limit, you need to wait 24 hours to do it again. 

Recover your Facebook account

If resetting your password doesn’t work, you can try recovering your account to see if that solves the issue. The process for recovering your account is very similar to the password reset process, except with additional security measures in place. 

Just head over to this link and type the email address associated with your account. Once Facebook has found your account, proceed with the on-screen instructions to recover your account. 

Use a friend’s account to recover yours

Another thing you can do is use a friend’s account to get into yours. 

Step 1: Head over to a profile you want to recover and click the three horizontal dots below the cover photo.

    It usually takes us just over a day to review your information. Check again here.

    Your account is not visible to people on Facebook and you can’t use it.
    What happens next
    We’ll take another look at your account.

    If we find that you’re old enough, you’ll be able to use Facebook again.

    If we still find that you aren’t old enough to be on Facebook, your account will be permanently disabled, and you won’t be able to disagree again.
