If you have access to the above mentioned items then it will be easier for you to find your Facebook account and recover it.
Step 1: Facebook needs you to find and identify the account in the first place. For that, you need to go to the recover page of Facebook by entering “https://www.facebook.com/login/identify/?ctx=recover” in the search bar. Enter your email address or phone number to find your account. You can also enter your username here to look for your account but you need to have access to your email account or phone number to receive the recovery code later.
Step 2: Once you have succeeded in finding your account, click on it. You will be asked if you want to receive recovery code via your email or phone number. Click on “continue” to confirm it.
Step 3: You will receive a code on your email account or number. Enter that code on the Facebook recover page and press “continue”. Your account will be recovered and you will be asked if you want to set up a new password. If your account was hacked, you need to change your password and set up a stronger one so it is not easily accessible to hackers in the future.
