Facebook provides Password recovery with the help of friends

The social network announced that it is rolling out a new way to recover passwords in Facebook login with a little help from your friends.¬†Called Trusted Friends, it gives three to five friends access to your account if you’re ever having issues logging in.

The company first introduced the concept to a small test group in 2011 under the name “trusted friends.” Facebook has renamed it “trusted contacts” and increased security. This solution provides users with another way to recover their password and can choose which method to use.

When an account can’t be accessed, Facebook will send different code numbers to your group of trusted contacts. If you have three people listed, you will need three codes to regain access.
