Someone Created a Facebook Account with Your Email Address – Tips [Video]

If someone created a Facebook account using your email address, you’ve probably received an email saying “Welcome to Facebook” as well as other emails from Facebook regarding an account that you did not create.

At the bottom of each email, there is a link that says “Didn’t sign up for Facebook? Please let us know!”

It is a good idea to click on that link and follow the message prompts but, from my experience at least, it doesn’t stop additional emails from being sent in the future.

As the video explains above, it may be a good idea to reset the password for the Facebook account that somebody else created with your email address and then change the primary email address to an email that you rarely use.

This isn’t a long-terms solution of course because it doesn’t stop the issue of someone attempting to create a Facebook account with your email but it may at least make the situation less annoying.

Facebook hasn’t really provided any good documentation on this matter yet but it seems to be affecting an increasing number of Gmail users so hopefully they will do something to resolve the issue in the near future.
