Log in. ... Second identification required, asking for my Government ID
It all began when I received an email from Facebook suggesting that I had requested & authorized second identification requirements, of which I had not. I attempted to Login to Facebook from the same device I have always used. It asks for a verification code. However, because I had not provided my phone number for messenger, as I do not use it or want text message updates.. it suggests that to verify my identity I must send in a picture of my government ID. Big brother, you have enough of my personal information (including regrettable college pictures, is this not enough!?) I would rather delete my account if this is what is required. I already hesitated to give Facebook my phone number, now my government ID? I don’t give it to Instagram, or Twitter. I only use these forums as they are intended for: social media. Why would I give them this information? It greatly concerns me that it seems impossible to get a hold of anyone in the company to address any issue at all. It is not for a lack of trying, I have emailed with zero response rate, there is no phone number & I have tried all the suggested ones the internet provides. I would happily give Facebook more of my personal information if they conducted themselves more like a legitimate business. How is it I should give more and more of my personal information to Facebook when there is no representation to ensure it’s safe keeping? The more a company asks for of personal information the more it should have safe keepings, true representation and policy practice to ensure the safety and comfort of its participants. For this reason, I would like to either access my simple social media profile without giving you my government information, or please Delete my account. Most frustrating, Is that at this juncture both seem impossible because there is no one to receive this at Facebook or take my concerns into consideration.
Allow me to confirm my identification via my email address or please delete my profile.
