How to change facebook secret question and secret answer?

There are quite a lot of people who are concerned about their security in Facebook. I have already explained the importance of Facebook’s secret question and answer on my recent post. There is no direct method to change your secret answer or question in Facebook. However you can change your Facebook secret question and answer if you mislead Facebook and convince Facebook that you are hacked.

Facebook will not let you change your Facebook secret question and answer until you convince Facebook that you’ve victimised a hack attempt on your profile. So we have to fake a hack attempt. Make sure you have access to all you email addresses linked with Facebook before we start or you will end loosing your Facebook.

Step 2: 

Select your profile and Click Reset My password Button. Select your recovery email addresses.

Step 3:

Enter your secret answer if you are asked.

Step 4: 

Wait for the email confirmation from facebook. Facebook will email you confirming the reset request.

Step 5:

Here is the trick. Convince Facebook that it wasn’t you who requested for resetting the password. Usually Facebook send you two links, the second link is more likely to be clicked to tell Facebook that it wasn’t you who attempted to reset the password.

Step 6:

Facebook will identify this as a hacking attempt and your profile will be locked down temporarily until you recover it. This is normal. You dont have to be panic anyways.

Step 7:

Go through the Facebook’s identification process. Let facebook identify you as the  legitimate user. You may have to go through few tough challenges like identifying your friends or will be asked to login from a computer which you previously logged in.

Step 8:

Once you successfully confirm your identity. Facebook will let you change your secret question and recovery email addresses.
