Facebook Log-in Problems and their Solutions
To avoid facing log-in problems it is important to ensure that correct credentials are being put in in the Log-in window. Make sure that correct email address or mobile number is being entered. For entering password make sure Caps lock is not ‘ON’. If mobile number is being used then ensure correct number with country code and without special cases is being entered. If you are logging in from a device for the first time you may have to go through a Security Check, which will ask you to identify some of your friends.
On rare occasions Facebook website may experience server issues, which can make both desktop and mobile app log-in difficult or impossible. In some cases reason for not getting logged in may be deactivation/deletion of your account for violation of the terms of service.
Diversified social networking platforms have emerged with a problem of forgetting either the user name or password or both. One makes account on at least two to three social networking apps or websites other than the emails, hence making it difficult to remember.

For both Desktop/Laptop and Mobile phone/Tablet users the procedure is same and simple. Just click on the ‘Forgot Password’ option and proceed by entering the email address or the mobile number. New Password will be sent to you on your requested option (either email or mobile number) via email or SMS.
If email address which was kept as Username is forgotten then Mobile number can also be used as Username (if mobile number is connected to your account). Options are available to keep different Usernames. E mail address, mobile number or any other username can be your Facebook Account Username.
Another key feature of Facebook is its ‘Messenger’ with which one can send private messages to family and friends. To utilize this service a separate app needs to be installed on the device.
Facebook Messenger app is available for both iOS and Android users. Download the app from either Goggle Play Store or Apple Store for free and get connected with your family and friends privately.
Facebook has a unique and user friendly Customer Care Service which is by the name ‘Help Center’. If faced by a problem and want to find a solution then go to Facebook Account and in that click on ‘Help Center’.
