I’m not sure if this is the right place for this question, but idk where else to ask.

Is there a way to log back into my account without giving FB my ID?

I have a Facebook account so that I can access links that require you to have a Facebook account. I don’t use it for anything else. I have no friends on it.

I had to factory reset my phone, and now I can’t log into my account without sending in some kind of id. It said I can log in from another device, but I get the same thing from every device.

I can live without FB. It just would be nice to be able to access links to it.

    I did the email verification, but then I have to also give them an id.

    I tried making a new account. As soon as I verified my email (which was a different email than my old account), I got a notification that my account was suspended and I have 180 days to appeal.

      They instantly suspended your brand new account? It sounds like there might be something else going on here, and I suspect that there’s more to this than you’d have us believe.

        Making a new account from the same IP after failing a verification is textbook ban/scam evasion

        I got the same trying to make an instagram login earlier this year, having never used insta before. I think Meta just has some overzealous automoderation of new accounts.

        There is nothing more to it. My original account was never suspended. Like I said, I only use it to click on links to FB. I’ve never posted anything.

        I used a DDG email for the new account. IDK if that has anything to do with it. I know some sites don’t accept that as an email. I got a welcome email a little afterward, and clicked the link. When I signed in, It also said I was suspended.

        I am using a VPN. Maybe it’s because that IP address has been used for another account. I’m just guessing there, because it didn’t tell me why it was suspended. It just gave me a link to their TOS.

          There were probably some clues in the TOS.
