So yeah. I woke to < removed by moderation > now owns my Facebook account

 

They striped the account of my actual email, phone number, and even added a 6 digit pin that can only be accessed by their email. I managed to, thankfully, find the email (as presented) and change the password, but I still need the 6 digit code to log in. Is there a way to access this email at all?? And yes, hacking is my last resort, but  just I want my account back. That, and I have next to no clue on how to hack an email.

 

Thank you in advance for any advice you may have! ( I have tried several times to contact Facebook and it's just been radio static)

 

Edit: They found out I changed the password and changed it again themselves. Now I only have their email.

The proper way, like you mention, is by contacting Facebook and presenting identification that can grant you access back to your account, though this may be impossible.

 

It's very difficult (but not impossible) to undo the two-factor authentication, but certainly nothing that's legal. Hacking of this nature is illegal, even if the perpetrator hacked you - likely, they didn't actually need to hack, they just brute-forced your password. If you're okay with breaking the law and Facebook's TOS (and that's a risk that you'll have to calculate), then you should do your own research on how to circumvent the two-factor authentication.

 

As much as I hate to be that person, let this be a cautionary tale, especially on why having two-factor authentication enabled is so important.

What do you mean hotmail didn't hack anything? 

Hotmail is only an email provider. It was a user using a Hotmail email addressed that managed to guess your password.

 

If Hotmail themselves actually participated in black-hat hacking activities, they (or rather Microsoft, the company that owns Hotmail) would get sued to oblivion.

I know “hotmail” didn’t do it.

 

The user behind the account did. I didn’t even say the company hacked it, I just gave the name of the accounts full name.
