Two Factor Authentication Facebook is a very much important thing you need to enable for facebook and other social site. As well as for your payment account over the internet. Everyone wants to ensure the security of his Facebook account. And some of people are using strange and bigger password for this.
But as harder as you set up login details, your Facebook e-mail address and other passwords are technically feasible. And Facebook, Google and some online service companies have introduced “Two Factor Authentication Facebook” facility to secure your account. If you enable it, you will need to enter another PIN code every time you sign in to new browser. This code comes via mobile SMS. These are also called security codes, which are sent from the server every time.
If anyone wants to hack two-step verified account, they needs to input three kinds of data. These are: username, password and registered the mobile number. Hacker can easily hack your user name or password. But at the same time your mobile phone is less likely to hack. So while signing on Facebook, they won’t get the pin code sent to your mobile.

Sometimes it takes time to get the security code. It even lasts even a few days. It is not possible to login to the account in these cases. What you’ll do then?
