Every once in awhile Facebook decides to run a security double check process, Facebook is cool however occasionally is quirky to say the least.

Here is what facebook recommends.
Facebook says my account has been compromised. Why can't I access my account? If you are unable to log in to your account and are receiving a warning that your account appears to be compromised, Facebook has detected suspicious activity on your account and has temporarily suspended it as a security precaution. It is possible that your password was "phished," or stolen by a website designed to look like Facebook. You will be able to regain access to your account once you complete the automated security verification process. When you regain access to your account, please be sure to follow all of the suggested security precautions, including:
  1. Password Protection: You should select a unique and complex password for your account and keep this entirely to yourself. Be sure that you use a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. It should also be different from other passwords you use elsewhere on the internet.
  2. Private Browsing: Please make sure that you log out of your Facebook account and quit your browser when you're done using the site. This is especially important when using a public computer or someone else's mobile device. You should also never check the "Keep me logged in" box when logging in from a public computer, as this will keep you logged in even after you close your browser window.
  3. Secure Email: Since anyone who can read your email can probably also access your Facebook account, you should make sure that any email addresses associated with your account are secure. To ensure security, you should change the password for all of your email accounts and make sure that no two are the same. By varying your passwords, you can greatly decrease your account's risk of being compromised in the future.
  4. Security Question: If you have not done so already, you should add a security question to your account from the Account Settings page. You should choose a question and answer that you will remember, and no one else should be able to answer the question that you choose.
  5. Log in at Facebook.com: Make sure that when you access the site, you always log in from a legitimate Facebook page with the facebook.com domain. Do not click any unfamiliar links and do not run any executable files (files ending in .exe) on your computer without knowing what they are. If something looks or feels suspicious, go directly to www.facebook.com to log in.
  6. Run Anti-Virus Software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove these harmful programs and keep your information secure.

Try a virus/spyware scan of your system.I suggest Malwarebytes, Google, download, update and scan. If it does not update then your system is surely infected. If you find anything and it cannot be removed or if it reappears then boot in safe mode if that is available in your OS and scan again.

Even though your old email is gone.. you can still use it to log in to FB. Then go to your account settings and change your email. Double check your new ID spelling! I suggest using a gmail or yahoo or similar email ID that is not dependant on your ISP.

Your title says "problem with routers" but the description indicates you have a problem with your facebook account. This problem doesn't seem to be related to a router however. It sounds like you're learning a painful lesson about life on the internet. Online systems like Facebook are plagued with problems such as this. If your account really has been compromised, there is no "fix". The easiest solution is to abandon the old account and start a new one (they are free, after all). Tell all your friends to block the old account and hopefully it will quickly fade into the sunset. I'm not a big facebook fan but there is probably a way to let Facebook administrators know that the account has been compromised. They may not let you back in but they can watch it for harmful activity (sending spam, etc) and if necessary cancel the account.

Before you do that though, take a day or two to think about the password, check to see if you wrote it down somewhere, etc. I've heard many people insist loudly that they are using the latest password and it isn't working, only to remember later that they recently changed it and suddenly they remember the new password!! :-)

When you receive this kind of email AND you click in the link provided, you are giving the scammer your username and password.

You MUST open a new browser windows, go to facebook website (typing the website address, DO NOT click links to go to that site) and Login with your username and password.

If you are able to login, Change your password Immediately!

If you still not able to login to your facebook account, click the link "Forgot password" from the login page.


Please ignore the emails from people telling you "Your account is suspended..." or "Suspicious activity". It is only a scam.

Good luck!
