Over the few recent years, an increase in the repeated violations, illegal activities and hacking attempts has been witnessed a lot. Thus, to maintain the trust of its billions users Facebook has recently tightened the security to a great extent.
Well, many users do not believe such situations where even Facebook disables their account. However, this is pretty much straightforward that even sometimes Facebook disables its accounts when it finds any violations of its guidelines. However this does not mean that you can’t recover your account at all.
Reasons Why Facebook Might Disable Your Accounts-
The following are some of the major reasons due to which your Facebook account has been disabled .
- Fake Account: If you didn’t use your real name Facebook will eventually find out.
- Misrepresentation: If you created a page that impersonates a person or entity it will be locked or even closed without warning.
Groups Joined: You have joined too many groups. The maximum limit is 200 groups per user.
- Spam: If you posted too many messages on a wall or in a group in a too short time span, it can be considered spam.
- Friends: You may have friend-requested too many people. Facebook has instituted a maximum 5000 friends policy, so this reason should be a rarity.
- Under Age: You are under 18 years old and not part of a High School group.
- Offensive Content: You wrote offensive content.
- Frequency: You may have sent “too many” friend requests or made “too many” wall posts (especially with identical content) in a short time frame.
- Hacked: Somebody may have tried to gain access to your account, so Facebook needs you to verify you are who you say you are. Typically someone will report and flag you for this activity.
- Malware: If it’s a potential problem, you will be presented with a pop up upon logging in, prompting you to scan your computer. Even though you may already have an up-to-date virus program be aware that malware isn’t actually a ‘virus’ so it may not be detected.
If you believe that your account has been disabled by mistake, you may appeal Facebook’s decision by completing an online form. Once submitted, Facebook will investigate the issue. Keep in mind that requests are not guaranteed within a certain time span — you may find yourself waiting for several weeks before receiving a response.
