GetHuman5304767's Recover Disabled Account issue with Facebook from September 2020
Help with my Facebook issue
Top Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. Facebook has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account. If your account is disabled then click here https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/260749603972907 and you have access to your email or phone number you may be able to recover your account.
The issue in GetHuman5304767's own words
For no clear reason, I re-set my year of birth to *. Apparently, this year does not comport with the Facebook age requirement, so my account was disabled. I was asked to send correct info for my birth year, a photo, and (I think) my country, and told that, "If we still find that you're not old enough to be on Facebook, your account will remain disabled." So I took a photo of my driver license and sent that. I was then told that the info was blurred. So I took another photo of my driver license and sent that photo, assuming that would resolve the age issue. My birth year is ****, which makes me old enough to be on Facebook. I still do not have access to my account and have received no update. I sent maybe * email messages each day, asking someone to please respond. Nothing. I saw a button to Download Your Information, which I did. The download was a zipped file, which I opened. As a result, I now have ** folders from my FB account (I assume) plus one html file. I do not know what to do with these files.**I want to have my account enabled asap, and I want someone to contact me with a status report plus instructions as to what to do next.
