This answer was rated:

I have a Samsung S5. Last week facebook stopped working. My daughter uninstalled facebook and then tried to install it again. Unsuccessfully. We were asked for a password, but after trying three different passwords we gave up. A few days later I tried again and was asked for my e-mail address, which I gave, in order for a code to be sent. This was attempted at least twice with no success.
I tried another of the options offered, i.e. change your e-mail address. This I did to my more usual e-mail address, used on my laptop. I was supposed to receive a code which never arrived, or if it did, I was unable to access it.
I then tried the final option offered, to use my mobile phone number. I was told 'this number is ***** to someone else'.
I would very much like to be able to access facebook on my phone using the e-mail ; ***@******.*** and would appreciate your help.
Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist. Do you have access to***@******.*** Inbox from a computer?

Just so you are aware, I am one step away from being computer illiterate. That is my e-mail address which I use on my laptop. I am using my laptop to converse with you. Is it possible for me to open my gmail at the same time and if so , how?

It is possible. What browser are you using?For example: Internet Explorer, Chrome or Firefox
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

|Internet Explorer. Should I just click on Gmail icon?

Yes. If you lose this page click the back button- the arrow at the top left of the Internet Explorer window that points to the leftand it should return you to this page

What next?

Do you have your Gmail inbox open? I had a password ***** code sent to this address:***@******.*** minutes ago. If you don't see it in the inbox, from the list of items on the left, at the very bottom, click MoreYou will then see your Spam folder listed. Look in there also
The email will contain a 6 digit confirmation code.

I have been unable to access this code. When I follow the instructions Just Answer disappears and I get a BT page saying the site cannot be found. Pressing the large arrow at the top left hand corner does nothing.

See if this works for you.Right-click the link below andselect Open in New should then see the new tab at the top.Click on it to change to that page

I need to go to bed right now as I have an early start in the morning. Also, I will be away from home all day tomorrow so, while I appreciate your help and don't mean to be awkward, will it be okay to do this about 9pm tomorrow?

Ok. I'm on the east coast u.s.a
What time is it where you are now?
I'll figure it out from that.
