This is especially useful if you have forgotten your password and your Facebook profile is linked to an old email address that you no longer have.

A warning was issued on Thursday, urging users to “review your security to avoid being locked out”.
The company warns people to make sure their email address and phone number are up to date before permanently terminating trusted contacts.
