Facebook: Your Account Has Been Locked?
Latest update on April 15, 2022 at 05:04 AM by David Webb .
We have already written articles about how to recover a locked or disabled Facebook account, what to do if your Facebook account is blocked due to age restrictions, andhow to get the Facebook confirmation code if it hasn’t been sent. However one issue that persists, even after taking the first steps to recovering an account – is that of the Facebook account review. This article will tackle the questions of how long does it take for Facebook to review your account? How you can speed up this process, and ultimately, why it takes Facebook so long to review an account.
What is the Facebook account review
Firstly, it is important to know what the Facebook account review actually is, and when to use it. The Facebook review consists of an online form that you need to fill in and submit. Below is what the form looks like.
As the form explains if you think your account was disabled by mistake, then fill in the necessary information and your profile will be considered for review. Even in the wording of this phrase, Facebook reserves the right to possibly not review your account.
Why Are Facebook Accounts reviewed?
There are many reasons why Facebook can decide to review an account, disabling it in the process. For example if an account is deemed to pose any security threat, Facebook will automatically flag it for review. Accounts can also be blocked if the account was created using a false identity, posting spam messages among other reasons.

Why Facebook Locks Our Account?
Two of three phishing pages analyzed by Armorblox were hosted on legitimate services to try to sneak past the usual security protection.
Successful phishing campaigns not only have to convince users of their legitimacy but must find ways to dodge security measures that would ordinarily flag them as suspicious. A report issued on Tuesday by email security provider Armorblox looked at the tactics employed by three recent phishing campaigns and suggests ways to avoid these types of scams.

For its new report, Armorblox examined three separate phishing attacks that impersonated Facebook, Microsoft and Apple. In each case, the attackers tried to steal the credentials of recipients by claiming that their accounts has been locked or that their subscriptions were about to expire. And in each case, the emails were able to get past security defenses to end up in the inboxes of their targeted victims.
In this campaign, the phishing email impersonates Facebook to warn a user that their account has been restricted due to security concerns. Using a subject of “Reminder: Account Verification,” a sender name of Facebook, and an address of [email protected], the email instructs recipients to verify their Facebook account in order to restore full access.
Clicking the link in the email takes the user to a phishing page that looks like the real Facebook login page. If the person actually does sign in, the page captures their phone number or email address and Facebook password.
To work effectively, this campaign uses a variety of tactics, including social engineering, brand impersonation, the compromise of existing email workflows, domain spoofing, and sender name spoofing. The parent name of the page is sliderdoyle.Com, which provides a clue to its malicious nature (and is blocked by the major browsers as a deceptive site). However, the page looks similar enough to the real Facebook login portal and conveys a sense of urgency so that some Facebook users may fill out the form without scrutinizing the URL.
