Facebook Protect problem
Posted: 18-Nov-2022 | 10:05PM · 1 Reply · Permalink
Hi, I got a message that if I didn't enable Facebook protect by Dec 3 I would be locked out. I went into my facebook settings to try and enable it. When I got to the screen where it asks me to enter my password I looked it up in Password Manager but it was an incorrect password. Somehow I think my Facebook account is linked to accounts.google ?? I tried that password also but that didn't work either. Can anyone help? I don't want to get locked out of Facebook

Hello Scott. First and most important is, if the message DID NOT come from "email@example.com" it is fake. Here is a bit of information for you: https://www.facebook.com/help/1052552578831700
It appears that FB is throttling the new feature and its going to users they deem needing better and stricter account protections. I would enable 2FA authentication until such time the feature allows you to complete the setup. If you must, change your password.
