Did you lose your Facebook Business or Facebook Business Manager page to a hacker or a disgruntled employee? Do not worry. It is possible to recover it. Below we have listed some examples that might be relevant to your issue.
Hacked Facebook account, where it often starts
Most stolen Facebook business pages are stolen when a personal Facebook account is hacked. Suppose the personal Facebook account has admin access to a business page. In this case, the hacker often transfers admin rights to their own private Facebook account and then removes the hacked Facebook account as the Facebook Business Page admin. In most cases, the hacker then posts illegal content to the hacked personal Facebook account to ensure that Facebook deactivates the account. This makes it much more difficult for the original user of the Facebook account and the rightful owner of the Facebook Business Page or Facebook Business Manager to recover their account.
A disgruntled employee or a marketing company
We have had several cases where the employer forgets to remove, for example, the administrator rights of employees who have been terminated. If the breakup with the employee was difficult, then in some cases the dismissed employee wants to “take revenge”. And if the terminated employee has admin access to the company’s business manager or Facebook business page, they can block all other admins from accessing the page or business manager. This translates to an immediate halt to the company’s promotional opportunities on Facebook and could be devastating to overall revenue.
We’ve also seen this happen when a marketing company runs their ads and posts stories on their Facebook business page. When the company ended the business relationship with the marketing company, it took over its Facebook business manager and Facebook business page.
To business owners and managers: Be very aware of the possibility that your terminated employee or marketing company may gain access to your online assets. You should always verify their administrator privileges and access to your online accounts before returning them.
