Why Do Businesses Get Locked Out of Their Account

Activate Facebook Protect, or else…

This is a major problem for businesses and we talk to businesses every week that either get their account shut down or the Facebook Polity team ban their account due to violations. There are TWO new updates that may put your account at risk. 1.

Facebook is locking people out of their accounts for not activating Facebook Protect, their new security program.

And even when users do activate it, many can’t get in.

What’s going on: Facebook claims their security program is for people who are “most likely” to be targeted by malicious hackers: journalists, activists, and politicians.

But lots of people are getting locked out of Facebook, not just journalists.

Why the security detail? It’s hard to say… but it seems like a move to collect more first-party data. Activating Facebook Protect requires two-factor authentication and a phone number.

More user phone numbers could mean more data, which would mean more opportunities for ad targeting…

Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
