Facebook is a popular social network that everyone knows about. Signing up for a Facebook account will allow you to stay in touch with what's happening around the world. It's a small world with all your family, friends, relatives and colleagues in it.
Have you ever been in a situation where you are setting something up on your Facebook account, therefore expecting a code from them but not getting one? This can usually happen when you reset your password, turn on 2-Step Verification, etc.
This major problem that occurs with Facebook has come to light recently when most of the users started complaining about not receiving any code from Facebook even after several attempts.
So, in this guide, you will get all the information about what to do when you do not receive the confirmation code from Facebook; There can be multiple scenarios, so let's discuss them one by one.
To sign up for a new Facebook account, you need to enter the Confirmation Code you receive in the email address or phone number you use to sign up. This should be done to verify that the phone number or email address you are using to create Facebook belongs to you. But in case you have not received the confirmation code sent by Facebook, you will not be able to continue.
If you don't receive the confirmation code from Facebook by email, here's what you can do:
Make sure you didn't use your wrong email address, as that could be the reason you didn't receive a confirmation code from Facebook. So if that's the case, please re-enter the email address so that you can get the code to the correct email address.
It can also happen that the email with the code has arrived in the wrong folder, so you have difficulty locating it. So please check the 'Spam' folder and Social category of your email account as you may find the email there.
If you're still having trouble, you can use your phone number to sign up instead of your email address.
If you don't get the confirmation code from Facebook on your phone number, here's what you can do:
Make sure you have entered the correct phone number, as this could be the reason why you are not receiving any SMS code from Facebook.
Once you have verified the number again, click the "Resend Code" option to receive the code again.
If you did not receive the confirmation code text from Facebook, you can select the 'Via phone call' option instead of 'Via text message'.
Alternatively, you can create a Facebook account using your email address instead of your phone number.
Facebook password reset code not received
When you forget your account password or your Facebook account has been hacked, the only option to recover it is to reset the password. However, that requires you to receive a code from Facebook and enter that to verify that it is actually you who is trying to reset the password. But if you don't receive any code from Facebook, you won't be able to reset the password; Let's see how you can fix that.
1. Use your trusted contacts-
If you have added trusted contacts to your Facebook account, you can use them to reset your password if Facebook does not send any confirmation code to your email or phone number; this is a way to verify that you are the actual owner of the account.
To take advantage of this option, click on "Don't have access to these?" when asked to verify your phone number or email address.
You will then be asked to reveal your trusted contacts in order to use them; enter your friend's name and then send the link you see on the screen to your friends and ask them to send you the code they received.
The moment you enter all the codes your friends have received, you will be able to regain access to your Facebook account.
2. Answer your security question-
You will get this option only if you have added any security questions when setting up your Facebook account. To use this option, start with:
By clicking on "Forgot your password?"
Then enter your Facebook email address to find your account
After that choose 'Security Question' as your password recovery method
Then click 'I will answer my security question'
Once you have answered the question correctly, you will be able to reset your Facebook account password.
