you can no longer change it..the only person who can provide u the password is ur x gf...if u have a internet provider, they can reset it for u as long as u are one of the auth rep or the account holder of the account...

That is not true...

"if u have a internet provider, they can reset it for u as long as u are one of the auth rep or the account holder of the account..."

That would apply if the account he was locked out of were an account provided by the ISP. However, the ISP has no control over a third-party website such as Facebook, so there is nothing the ISP can do in this case.


Since all information used for identification verification purposes (email address, password, and secret questions/answers) were changed, there is no way to prove legitimate ownership of the Facebook account. Thus, your only option is to contact your former girlfriend and persuade her to return your access to your account, then remember to protect your account in the future by not sharing your password with anyone, including your significant other.


P.S. Please avoid the use of profanity in the forums. The forum filters bleeped it out, but it's still undesired. Thanks.

i agree with u john..

yeah i just realized that account in facebook is not related to the isp if they want to reset password since this is a third party website...
