How to Recover Facebook Password with Facebook Trusted Contacts

Many a times it happens that we forget our Facebook password if we frequently change it or could be the case that someone has hacked our Facebook account and then we are unable to access our Facebook account. Facebook has come up with a good feature called ‘Trusted Contacts’ which helps you to recover the password. To enable the  Facebook Trusted Contacts feature in your Facebook account, you require a minimum of 3 friends.

Note: Choose the Trusted Contacts whom you can contact without the usage of Facebook or can reach them over the phone or see them personally.
