Facebook – Your Account has been temporarily suspended, Message

If your facebook account suspended due to friend requests you have sent from your account by ignoring the warnings issued, then send an email to [email protected] to reactivate facebook account. This may take 5 days or little more to get your account back. Explain the exact action you have performed which made the account go blocked. Facebook has introduced Trusted Contacts feature recently, learn how to recover facebook account using trusted contacts here.


I got this message for second time with my facebook account. I was not sure whether the problem caused due to firefox or because of any phishing site. I was getting this error while trying through firefox. Anyhow, Facebook proves the stealthy security system in place 🙂 that makes me bit comfort. It takes me through 4 steps to activate my locked account.

facebook account suspended

Verifying the Date of Birth, Primary email address configured and finally an email will be dispatched with the link to enter your new password. That is all it takes. This automatic locking system is effective but it will make any one bit scared at the first shot. It is also advisable to check with your primary email address to change its password from the older one.

If it is Gmail, then check for any recent unknown IP logins through the footer of your Gmail account page. The IP details will reveal whether any other person have logged into your account or not. These must be done in no time. Delaying may let the hacker to take control of your email address too.

  1. Even I faced this two times earlier, it too annoying, the most frustrating part is we can't put the used password again.

    1. My account has been suspended I can’t get in contact with facebook so they can help me with this problem what can i do? Everytime i try to go in it keeps telling me that y facebook has been temporarily suspended what can i do!!!!!!!!1

      1. Yous Do Things about it try to fill out different forms and sites mine is locked and am trying so many things just to get my account back……. Try this http://watchdog.truste.com/pvr.php?page=complaint&ur. Hope it will help but am still waiting for their answer and it says it will take up to 10 business days but it might be longer or shorter okay….. 🙂

  2. I got this message last Sunday and am trying to go through the steps to unlock my account. Only problem is the security code Facebook is supposed to send me never comes through to my email. Has anyone had this problem? If so, what have you done?? I've tried emailing various Facebook addresses and haven't gotten any answers!

  3. Hi Rachel,

    Facebook support system is the one that never responds.. 🙂 similarly the facebook phone confirmation link. The phone system wont work fine with all the mobile service providers to receive the confirmation code. The one thing we can do is trying alternative mobile service providers within our region.

    And for Email delivery, sorry to say you have to wait… The FB Email Delivery system is fast usually with its applications and other reminders but not with this account related things.

  4. I am having the exact same issue as you. The security code never comes to my email. Have you gotten yours yet?? I have tried emailing several “customer service” addresses at Facebook and have gotten no help.

    1. Hi, this problem usually occurs if you are using Google Apps configured email.

      Try the same with any other email service providers like yahoo, rediff or gmail.

      1. Oh my gosh the exact same thing has happened to me and I am so bloody frustrated with it. I have a hotmail account and but like the gmail users you mentioned no confirmation code ever comes through. I disabled cookies, emailed the fb help people AND tried changing my password multiple times but nothing has helped… :'(

        1. scratch that! I finally managed to fix it: some fb addresses are blocked in hotmail (I’d say this goes for other email accounts too). Sure enough the one i needed was in the blocked section in my settings. After unblocking I was able to complete the account recovery process 😀

          1. Heyy india.. please tell me how can i do this..Im facing the same problem :S
            please tell me step by step !!
            your help is highly appreciated !


  5. i have this problem at the moment but when it asks me for the code i type it in and submit it.
    it just asks me for it again and again and again. how can i fix it????

    1. I got a similar problem. They texted me the code. However, I can’t type it (or anything else into the field provided in step 2). I’m stuck, any help is much appreciated.

  6. @michael1988 I am having the same issue today. I type in the code and it keeps asking for it again and again. I have tried to enter it on Safari and Firefox… nothing! Any luck yet?

  7. Hi @michael1988 and @kimity, the issue may be with the Re-Captcha identification. Please try refreshing the captcha alone to finish this step.

    I tried the same and it worked.. few captchas are actually not readable.. Thats why..

    – Robin

  8. Thanks for the response, Robin. I tried it but no go. I guess I will just have to wait to see if I get a response from facebook. I just wish they would just take the page down altogether. If I can't access it, I don't want anyone else to either. Thanks, again for the quick response.

  9. hy. I’m getting this message but on step 3 (I have 7 steps) I need to verify my account with security code whic isn’t coiming in e-mail on my e-mail address. I have contac them to e-mail but aren’t responing. can anybody help me??? thank you

  10. I have the same issue, this is the second time that happen to me, but I’m so annoyed because I can’t remember the birth date I filled, I put there any date (I didn’t think it would be important to recover my account ) , so I can’t fill well the confirmation of my birthday, then I can’t activate my account. anybody can help me?, I tried changing my password, it worked but my account is still suspended and appear the same message, I’m not sure if the facebook’s help center could help me, the first time that I ask them for help, they never answered to me.



    PD: please, any help email to me [email protected]

  11. I have the same problem as michael1988. Unlike the picture above, there are 5 steps. The 3rd step is to Send Code, which in my case is supposed to go to my email address. It says it sends the code (and shows my email address) but it never is received in my inbox, nor is it in my junk email, nor is it bounced. I have no idea where it is going.

    Because my account is suspended, and because I can’t create another account using my only email address, I can’t even ask a question on Facebook about this. (What a f’d up support system they have — could it possibly BE any worse?)

      1. Robin, excuse my computer ignorance but can you explain what you mean by using google apps type of email services?

  12. i have same problem with that security code , i am not receiving a mail with that security code , can some1 help us ?

  13. I have same problem , i am not getting email with security code , but my email is good and i get facebook mails when i reset password , i must get that mail with security code , help pls …

  14. I am having exactly the same problem as everyone else, I need step three of the verification code sending to me and it does not send to my email atall. I’m not great with the computers so any major technical steps prove to be difficult i just need something in plain english.
    I am so upset and fustrated and facebook are useless at getting back to me i’ve contacted them on several occasions regarding this matter and nothing. I can’t believe that so many people are having this same issue and they haven’t sorted it out. I wouldn’t mind but it wasn’t my fault that it was hacked so now that i’m trying to recover it, it doesn’t work! I have friends and loved ones i depseratly want to get in touch with 🙁

      1. I’ve got yahoo, and the same problem. I’ve unblocked every Facebook-related address, and still nothing. Nothing in my spam filter, either. Argh! Has anyone gotten past this?

  15. My account has also been suspended, for what reason I do not know. I get the same way of unlocking my account and I get to step 3 where they are suposed to send you a security code via email, however I haven’t recieved that email. What should I do?

    1. Many people have this issue at around the same time? I got this too and its annoying me, i dont get any e-mail sent to me telling me my security code, I too have family and friends on this account that i’d really love to get back to talking to. “It says Your account has been temporarily suspended Suspicious activity has been detected on your Facebook account and it has been temporarily suspended as a security precaution. It is likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as phishing.”

      The steps are a bit different and they say this at the top “Step 1
      OverviewStep 2
      Security CheckStep 3
      Verify AccountStep 4
      Change PasswordStep 5
      Email PasswordStep 6
      Review ActivityStep 7
      Restore Account”

      And just like all of you, I get stuck at the point where they request a security which they will “send” to your e-mail. Anyone else here pissed and impatient or is it just me?

      1. yes mee ! -.- i cant get past step 2 because it wont let me answer the questions !!!!! D: STUPID SHITTT ! THIS IS MY SECOND DAY WITHOUT USING FACEBOOK ! SCRET IT.

      2. I am another one who does not receive the code..so I can progress to step 3!!!!! What are we to do??
        Why are there so many of us like this???
        I am really ticked off

  16. I am having the same problem. My Facebook account has been phished, and temporarily suspended by Facebook. In order to regain access over it, I have to go through 7 steps. Everything is fine with steps 1 and 2, but I get stuck while completing the step 3. It simply won’t send confirmation code to my email. I even tried completing the 7 steps from another pc, another browser, I have cleared my captcha, but nothing.
    Can anyone please help me?

  17. hey guys i seem to be having the same problems as all of you…it’s a joke., there seems to be no way for us to contact facebook either for advice or just them to sort out the damn problem and let us access our OWN account!

    It’s step 3 which is annoying – I keep attempting to send the confirmation code to my email, but nothing. And I can’t get past this step!

    Any help would be appreciated muchly!

  18. HI….
    Unfortunately I recieve that message every time I try to log in the past 3 days :((( I try to follow the steps but they never send me the security code for step 2 to my e-mail adress in order to proceed.Im devasteted….Ive send an email about this problem to facebook team but I didnt get any reply….Can you help me??

    Thanx in advance:))

  19. Im having the problem that my account is temporarily suspended but once i press start to go to step 2 it doesn’t even let me answer the questions.

    1. I am having the same issue. When I answer the questions about who is tagged in the photos it sometimes lets me answer, but sometimes just flashes the picture and then goes to the screen that says that my answers aren’t accurate enough. When it does let me answer, I know that I am answering correctly.

  20. I have received the same email and also did not receive the security code in step 2. I have sent several email with no response and I am still trying to activate my account it has been 2 weeks. Did you eventually get your account back??? If anyone can help me to rectify this problem I would appreciate it.

  21. it happened to me today…how will i restore my account i tried to fill it up but i need to wait for one hour before doing it again i’m afraid they might already hacked my account please help me…

    1. We are not sure about the timing but try contacting facebook support. I know its one of the worst support experience that people have when they call or send mails.

      Just give a try and thats the only hope. Otherwise you must create new facebook account and never add the people who you dont know much. The facebook warning message should not be ignored while adding 10 or more people in a day.

  22. i am also having this problem except it sends me the security code, but the next step(whixh is changing your password) is the farthest it’ll let me go. i change my password and thats it:(

    anyone else where im at atleast?

  23. I am having the same problem. My Facebook account has been phished, and temporarily suspended by Facebook. In order to regain access over it, I have to go through 7 steps. Everything is fine with steps 1 and 2, but I get stuck while completing the step 3. It simply won’t send confirmation code to my email. I even tried completing the 7 steps from another pc, another browser, I have cleared my captcha, but nothing.
    Can anyone please help me…wer can i get the security code…

  24. My [email protected] account was temporarily suspended due to improperly entering an incorrect password too many times before realizing it when it was too late.

    I have gone through the steps that is takes in recovering my account. It takes me to step 3 where I am able to change my password, but then it stops there. I cannot go to step 4. Is this a glitch of some sort? Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

    Thank-you for your help,

  53. When I open my facebook account I saw these message(Your account has been temporarily suspended
    activity has been detected on your Facebook account and it has been
    temporarily suspended as a security precaution. It is likely that your
    account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a
    website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as
    phishing.) how can I do …If anyone know the method please tell me or send my Gmail…to [email protected]

  54. my account has been temporarily suspended.

    Suspicious activity has been detected on your Facebook account and it has been temporarily suspended as a security precaution. It is likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as phishing.

    For 6 days, I have tried over and over to regain my account, but I forgot my security answer. I have tried every possible answer I think I would put, and they were all wrong. Not only have they made me change my password several times in the process, but they also would never let me go on my account, and won’t send me an email to regain it.

    I didn’t even do any phishing, and I LOVE my facebook account because of all the pictures and my levels and games and such (as any Facebook user would understand) so I do not want to risk losing it.

    I don’t know what else to do, and contacting Facebook is not an option, so what do I do? Please help. 🙂

  55. Great! Now why can’t the morons on Facebook allow people who got suspended to make a plea. Some people get suspended for the dumbest reasons. I’m tired of facebook banning people & not allowing them to give an opinion.

    1. They don’t want you to be able to have a plea. That way that can regulate what is shown and the comments made. The owners of Facebook are very liberal and anti-Christian. They try in little ways to block free speech. I was blocked for 24 hours for calling someone “Kooky” for bashing the Bible, yet those same people are allowed to say hateful things about Christians.

        1. You’re welcome to come to Myrtle Beach and say that to my face. You’ll be the one crying like a little bitch baby.

          1. Haha Myrtle Beach?! With you living there they should just get it over with and name it Marksuckscockville. I’d smack your faggot ass up and down the street you fat cunt lol

  56. Can someone help me? I have had a Facebook account for a few years and this is the first time, today, that I got that notice that my account is temporarily suspended, it says exactly what the mumbo jumbo on the previous posts here say. A phishing incident. It asks me to verify my account by typing in some letters in a box, then it takes me to the next CHALLENGE, as they call it. They ask me to identify five sets of photos from my friends list. It refused me over and over again, saying that I was not accurate enough. What? I identified my own kids and grand kids, but I wasn’t accurate? Give me a break!! I reset my password, I did the challenge thing with the photos till I was blue in the face, and still I was rejected. So it does not let me sign in with my old password that I changed only moments ago to a new one. It let me change the password and acts like it knows me, but it won’t let me in. As far as I know I have done nothing wrong. Something stinks because it keeps showing me photos of dogs and cats and I am supposed to identify them. What? How many dogs and cats can you identify from your friend’s many photo albums? I can’t even email facebook to complain. There is nothing in the help to address this apparently common problem. So I figured I would try and sign up a new facebook account just so I could get into the site and complain, and the site recognized me as me when I went to the page to do that, even before I typed in a anything. So, Facebook knows me but rejects me based on what…I can’t identify some dogs and cats?

  57. I really need help..please…i lost my mobile and when i log in to fb it
    will verify my account thru my mobile number thru sending a
    verification code to my number, i could not anymore since i lost my
    phone. I dont have no other way to regain my same number. How will i be
    able to log in now? please help me….

  58. facebook sucks. I called someone looked like a tr@nny and I blocked. yet. I’ve been called a fudge packer and they do nothing. Facebook sucks.

  59. My facebook account was hacked then suspended. Even though I explained this to FB they still suspended my account . What do I do?

  60. They suspended me because someone was celebrating homosexuals.. I was offended AND I was SUSPENDED! I say everyone DROP THEIR ASS,! They can go broke for all I care!

    1. Dear Danny Ballsndick, when I come on Jesus’s face is there something in the bible about not shooting jizz in his eyes? Thanks

    1. So you’re gay? Well that, and an idiot troll that has a very sad life. I may be a Christian, but you said that to my face and you’d need a good dentist.

        1. Again, more than welcome to come to Myrtle Beach and say that to my face. Funny how you liberals are so tuff behind your computers, but nothing but cowards in real life. You even have a fake profile to hide behind.

          1. The word is spelled *tough you retard. Maybe if you took the three cocks out of your asshole every once in a while and read a book you wouldn’t be such a fat stupid cum guzzling little bitch lololololol
