    I have had my FB account hijacked I can no longer gain access to my account. I keep getting codes sent to my phone to open my page. I tried FB to get some information how to fix the problem but they ask me for more identification. I really am becoming very suspicious because I don't like handing over my personal information in case they are hackers who have put up information sites to gain more information. how do you know something is legitimate.

    I got a message from a Facebook friends of mine with a link to a video about me. Once clicked on the link it asked to login to access the video. I asked my friend what this was about and she didn't respond even though she had only been online 1 minute ago. I changed my password just to be safe.
