‘Thank goodness it’s not just me i was getting super worried… also said session expired for me and i’m not receiving the code when my phone number on file is most definitely correct,’ wrote one user online.
‘Session expired – says password is invalid. When try to reset it says my account doesn’t exist!’ added another frustrated user.
‘My boyfriend and I have both been logged out. It will not let me trusted contacts recover my account. I have no access to my email and it will not send me the code. I know my password is correct because I changed it yesterday,’ chimed another frustrated Facebook user.
