I recently wrote about how to reclaim your Facebook account after it’s been hacked (see tinyurl.com/4yucraay). But several readers said it’s not so easy to recover a Facebook account.
They report that the recovery process Facebook offers its users is slow and sometimes doesn’t work at all. There’s no fix I can suggest for that, because Facebook is in control of when or if it returns hacked Facebook accounts to users. But I can suggest a way to reduce your chances of being hacked, or to improve your chances of account recovery if you are hacked: Add an “authenticator app” to the device on which you log in to Facebook.
