Ways to strengthen Facebook passwords
The key to accessing a Facebook account is the password for the Facebook account. So it is very important to choose a strong Facebook password. Let's find out how to use a strong Facebook password.
Even if you have to remember your Facebook password, it should be such that others can't easily figure it out. Try using a different password for each of your accounts. That means your bank, email and Facebook passwords should be different. Because, if someone finds out the password of one account, the security of every other account is lost.
The longer the password, the harder it will be for others to guess the password. So you can use long passwords that you will remember for extra security. Also refrain from using your email, phone number, date of birth, pet name, or nickname as Facebook password.
Giving a new Facebook password shows how strong your password is. If you find that your password is not strong enough, try to create a strong password by combining lowercase letters, numbers, etc. Using multiple words or phrases, you can use passwords that are long but convenient to remember.
How do I know the current Facebook password?
It is not possible to see the Facebook password directly in Facebook. There is no such feature on Facebook. However, if the Facebook password is saved in Chrome or any other password manager, it is possible to see. Otherwise there is no other way but to reset the password.
How do I reset Facebook password without phone number or email?
There is no way to reset the password of a Facebook account without the phone number or email already connected to the account. However, if you have added a trusted contact to your account, you can get the account back.
