In early March, some Facebook users received a spam-like email. It informed about the need to enable Facebook Protect for enhanced account protection. Users were required to enable this feature by a certain date.
But the letter from Facebook looked very much like spam, many people ignored it and since March 17 they have lost access to the account.
Now some users are unable to log into their Facebook account. They also fail to regain access to the account using the instructions offered by the social network. Even the help instructions don't always work. For some, two-factor authentication does not work either.
I got locked out from Facebook indefinitely today because I didn’t respond to emails from FB (that looked like a scam) about its new Facebook Protect system, which I was required to enable by today. So far, the text and security key options don’t work, many report. pic.twitter.com/0aXbiqzLv7— Liv. (@Olivia_Thiessen) March 18, 2022
