1. Distinguishing between Temporary and Permanent Facebook Account Lockouts

Many people often wonder: How long does a Facebook account stay locked?

The answer is: Until you verify your account, otherwise it will be permanently locked.
  • This is also the first point to differentiate when unable to log in to Facebook.
  • For temporarily disabled Facebook accounts, you need to Verify, which only takes a few minutes, or a few days (if Facebook requests documentation).
  • On the other hand, for permanently locked accounts, you need to Appeal, which is much more complex to recover.
  • I will delve deeper into this issue.

2. Reasons for Temporary Facebook Account Lockout

For Facebook accounts temporarily locked, the sole reason is usually related to security issues.

Notification
  • You will typically receive a notification stating:
  • Your Account is temporarily locked.

1. Verify your account information and prepare necessary documents:

  • Firstly, you need to confirm which email address or phone number was used to register your account.
  • Next, check if your Facebook avatar features your own image.
If your account is not linked to an email address or phone number for security purposes, and your avatar does not depict you, consider creating a new account.
The likelihood of recovering a Facebook account in this scenario is close to zero.
Conversely, if all information is complete, prepare the following types of documents:
  • Photos of both sides of your ID card taken with your phone.
  •  Photos of both sides of your driver’s license taken with your phone.
  •  Full-body personal portrait photo.
  • Close-up personal portrait photo (selfie).
