How do I recover my personal Facebook password?

For your security, we at TaxProMarketer do not keep any records of your personal Facebook information (login e-mail, password, etc) and request you not send this information to us. 

If you've lost your Facebook password, there are a couple of ways to recover: use the Facebook process, or check your browser's remembered passwords. There are two approaches to try: the official Facebook way, and the not-so-official way. 

Facebook Password Reset

The only legitimate way to reset your password is Facebook’s own account recovery mechanism. 

If you don’t know your password, you need to recover your account. Just below the login password entry field on Facebook’s sign-in page is a link: Forgot account?

Click the "Forgot Account" option, and you’ll be taken to a page where you can enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.

You’ll then be presented with a list of account recovery options associated with your account.

Assuming you do have access to the recovery account or method you’ve selected, Facebook will email you a code.

Below is an example of how this code is provided in email format 

Enter the code as requested and click on Continue

Having proven you are the rightful account owner, you’re asked to select a new password.

That’s the official way to regain access to your account. You can respond to the password recovery methods, and then set a new password.

Facebook password recovery

If you want to recover your existing password, we need to make it clear that you might not be able to.

However, if you go to www.facebook.com and find your browser automatically signs you into your Facebook account, then you know your browser has saved your Facebook password, and there is a copy of it on your browser. 

We use a Firefox browser as an example here, but most browsers (Chrome, Internet Explorer, etc) have similar functionality.

 Click on the menu at the right end of the Firefox toolbar, and then click on Options (or Preferences, depending on your version). Use the search box in the resulting page to search for “password”, and when it appears, click on Saved Logins...

This will open a window listing all of the sites where Firefox saved your password. Click Show Passwords.

All of this assumes you’ve allowed your browser to save your passwords for you. If you have not, this technique will not work.

Again, if you want to recover your existing password, you might not be able to, due to the way Facebook recovery is set up.
