Social Account Recovery
We have prepared this study to identify the problems you have accessing your social accounts and find solutions. Social Account Recovery consists of certain steps. Account recovery with your phone number (SMS) and account recovery via Email are two main steps. Our articles about saving your password and reminder passwords online and saving Super password are ready on the site.
Social Account Recovery Steps
Account recovery by email
(Account recovery by mail account)
The first thing you need to open a social account is an email account. If you want to open a Facebook account, it will ask you for an email account. They can then send a link to your email address to confirm your account. You open the message to your email address and click on the link you need to confirm. So your facebook account opens immediately. In account-related transactions, this email address works just like your home address. There are places that you should notify when your address changes. When your email account registered on your Facebook account changes, you need to remove your old address registered on Facebook and add your new email address. This is a very important step. Because your emails cannot come to the correct address. Because many users skip this step, they lose access to their facebook account. If you have linked a non-email contact option to your facebook account, you can continue accessing your account. For example, to define a phone number on your facebook account.
Recovery by Email
What will you do when you lose access to a social account by email?
In this article we will work on the example of Instagram.
You need to know the email registered on your Instagram account.
I do not know the registered email:
I forgot my password! Click the link. It can show part of your Instagram email account like blabla***@gm***. Or it can directly show your email address. Thus, you can understand with which email you have an Instagram account. You can continue using your account with your new password by going to your email account and following the password renewal steps.
I do not know the password of my email account
Email passwords can be forgotten. Email recovery options vary by service. Recovering a Google Mail account or recovering an Outlook account may be different. The email service asks some questions to recover your account.
The last password you remember.
The month and year you registered.
Secret questions and answers.
Do you have a registered phone number? (proceed to the account recovery step with phone number if available)
Did you add another email account? (Your email service is for recovery with another email service)
* Answer the above questions and similar questions in the most accurate way! * If possible, log in with the device on which you opened this email account.
Try the account recovery step with the computer or phone or tablet you created an account with. If you can provide enough and correct information, the system will recover your account. Missing information and inaccurate situations put your account at risk. Follow these steps in a calm environment to succeed.
Contact the help service
There is another option that is not among the email recovery options. We recommend this as a page. Establish a direct link from the Help pages with the email service. They will not want to help in this matter. Be prepared for this. But you should definitely try this step. After all, there can be no one else who claims and makes so much effort and offers the most information in that mail account. They will listen to you and if you are right they will save your account.
Account recovery with your phone number
(Account recovery via SMS)
Another important option among social account recovery options is your phone number. For example, if you define your phone number on your facebook account, if you have problems accessing your account, you can recover your account with an SMS. If you haven’t already, add a phone number to your facebook account. Thus, you will get rid of account access problems.
An important reminder: When your phone number changes or you lose access to your phone number, do the following:
- Go to your Facebook account and add a new phone number. Get an accessible phone.
- Remove your old phone number immediately. (Do this even without losing access to the phone number!)
* We have given the example of the facebook account to understand the subject. You can follow the same two steps for Instagram and Twitter and more accounts.
Recovery by Phone Number
What to do if you lose phone access to a social account
In this article, we will work on the example of Turkcell.
You have a facebook account and you were logging in by entering your phone number. But one day you got a new phone number. You closed it because you did not use the changed phone number. Your phone line is off. However, this phone number is still registered on your facebook account. And recovery emails go to this old trick. The phone (SMS) account recovery step will not work because you have not registered your new phone number on your facebook account.
What can I do with the phone off my social account?
You are not the first person in this situation. These situations may occur after you. The solution is simple. However, you will have to deal. Obviously, we suggested this solution in response to an email that came to us before writing. We said call the customer service of the telephone network.
Your number is now passive when your phone line is closed. It remains so until it is sold to another user. So what is it you have to do in this situation? Call the network to which your old number is connected immediately. Tell the customer service about the situation. Say its importance to you. Explain that you need help.
Offer to buy your number.
Find out if there are alternative methods without purchasing your number. Investigate legal facilities.
What will you do if your phone line has been sold?
Your phone is active:
If your old telephone network line has been sold, call the direct number. Call at the appropriate times. Send a message explaining the situation before calling. If your message has been delivered to the number, find out. If they help you, thank you. Who knows, maybe you win friends.
If it doesn’t help, give time and try again. Don’t overdo it, please. Write beautiful to succeed in the first message.
Your old phone network number is off:
Your old number has been sold but is inactive. So nobody can answer when you call. Contact customer service now. Tell them I want to buy my old number or want to know who you are selling to. Transactions are easier if you can find out who they are sold to. If it has been sold to a company and is not active, contact the company. Start communication with the authorized person by phone or email. Explain clearly your problem and how to solve it. They will surely help you.
