Trying to reset my Facebook password is driving me crazy, maybe it’s just me I don’t know but it’s proving to be quite the task. For starters I can access my Facebook account on my phone and tablet just fine but not on my laptop. I use every password I can think of and it tells me that my password was changed about four months ago.
Because I can’t remember the password I figure hey why not just reset it, simple enough right? Not in the slightest, let me explain the most difficult password reset I’ve ever had to go through in my life, and hope to never go through again.
First I selected log in using Google but that didn’t work it game me a code in a text message, I enter that code and nothing it just tells me that I’ve entered that code too many times already. Well it was the first time I used it. So I tried having one emailed to me while it was a different code then the text it did the same thing.
I got to the point where I was out of chances after trying it a few times and getting the same codes each time, This seems like a huge security issue, if anyone gets these codes they could reset your password and gain access to everything on your account, change your information, and even ruin your reputation, a little late for the reputation part for me I did that myself,
Well after two hours of waiting I copy and paste the same code that I got five times already from my email and it allowed me to reset my password. However if you ask me they need to set a time limit on how long you can use a code, something like ten minutes and each time you request a password reset it should send you a new code call me strange if you like, but it would be more secure,
