As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Facebook has begun the rollout of two new security features to help users regain access to their accounts if they’re locked out and let them access third-party applications safely. Trusted Friends lets locked out users have an access code sent to their close friends. App Passwords lets users bypass the Login Approvals security feature that doesn’t work with some apps by using a unique app-specific password.
Facebook users can sometimes be locked out of their accounts by Facebook’s automated security systems that occasionally produce false positives, as well as by hackers.
