Many people are complaining on social media platforms that they are not able to login to their Facebook account. These users have been told that until they turn on Facebook Protect, they will not be able to access their accounts.
Facebook rolled out Facebook Protect globally in September last year by taking it out of the testing phase. The platform says that this is a security program, which helps to keep the user’s Facebook account safe. The platform says that it is specially designed for users who can become a target of hackers. These include people like journalists, government employees and human rights activists.
Account closed if Facebook Protect is not enabled
Facebook is closing accounts that haven’t turned on Facebook Protect. Some time ago the company sent mail to some users to turn on Facebook Protect. Of these, those who have not activated this system, their account has been closed. The account will be able to come back only if they turn on Facebook Protect.
A user on Twitter said that he had also received an email asking to turn on Facebook Protect, which appeared to be spam. Because of this, he ignored it. But as soon as the last date to activate Facebook Protect given in the email came, their account was locked.
According to The Verge, Facebook sent these emails from the [email protected] address. This address matches the typical spam you receive.
