You'll now have to choose between two alternatives on your screen, whether you want it recovered or destroyed, but you'll almost definitely want it recovered, so click on recover account.
If the username for the account you wish to recover isn't available, you can use either your email or phone number, depending on who you have between the two.
Now sit still as Facebook searches its database for an account that matches the information you entered. After the account has been located, you will be asked to enter any familiar password you have previously used on the account (new or old). After entering your familiar password, you will be asked to choose how you want to receive the link to reset your account password. Skip all of the options and go straight to Have You Lost Access To These?
A new window will open with an instruction to enter the new email address where the password reset link should be sent. So fill in any email address you have and wait for the password reset link to arrive in your inbox.
Once you've got the link, click it to establish a new password that is both tougher and unrelated to the one that was previously stolen.

You'll need to select Identify Photos Of Friends from the drop-down menu. This will allow you to identify 5 different photos from 5 random friends on your account.
After successfully identifying all five of your friends' photos, you'll be taken to a website that lists all of the recent modifications to your account; from there, you can change any information that has been substituted by the hacker information.
After that, you'll be led to a screen that confirms you've successfully regained your account, and you can now use it to post and comment again.
These simple steps can help you recover your Facebook account quickly. It may take longer in some cases, but if you try these methods the same day you lost your Facebook account, you'll have a 90 percent chance of getting it back the same day.
