Before you get started, be sure you have: Login email address or mobile phone number, Full name, Government issued ID

If your Facebook account has been disabled, you will need to provide a government issued ID that shows your name, birthday and a photo that matches your profile. If you don't have a government ID, you can submit two different forms of identification with just your name and photo that matches your profile. Once you have your ID, you will need to scan it and upload it to your computer. Before you upload it, cover any confidential information. You also want to make sure you can see it clearly then save the photo to your computer.
