How do I unlock my Facebook account?

A simple 7 step guide for solving this common Facebook problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Before you get started, be sure you have: Name on the account, Password, License
If you account has been locked or disabled, you will need to submit some identification to Facebook to prove your identity to them to release your account. Once you submit your information to Facebook for review, they will respond to you in 24-48 hours.
You will need to find your driver's license or passport and scan a copy of it. Make sure to blank out your social security number or passport number. Remember, Facebook just needs to confirm that you are who you say you are by using your government ID and picture to do so. They don't need much more informaiton than that.
Once you have scanned a copy of your license to your computer, you can open the upload page by clicking on this link
Click "Choose Files"
Select the picture that you have uploaded
Click "Send"
You will hear back from Facebook about the next steps to unlock your account, on the email that you used to sign up with Facebook with. Once they approve your identity, you will be sent an email and will be able to sign into your account again!
