Recover a Facebook Business Page or a Facebook Business Manager
Have you lost your Facebook Business Page or Facebook Business Manager to a hacker or a disgruntled employee? Do not worry. It is possible to recover it. Below we have listed a few 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 had admin access to a business page. In that case, the hacker often transfers the admin rights to their own private Facebook account and then removes the hacked Facebook account as an admin from the Facebook Business Page. In most cases, the hacker then posts illegal content on the hacked personal Facebook account to ensure that Facebook disables the account. This makes it much harder 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 Marketing Company
We have had multiple cases where the employer forgets to remove, e.g., admin rights of employees that have been fired. If the breakup with the employee was difficult, then in some cases, the fired employee wants to “get revenge.” And if the fired employee has admin access to the company’s business manager or Facebook business page, they could remove all other admins from accessing the page or business manager. This results in an immediate stop of the company’s promotional possibilities on Facebook and could be devastating for the overall revenue.
We have also seen this occur where a marketing company runs its ads and posts stories on its Facebook business page. When the company ended the business relationship with the marketing company, it took over their Facebook business manager and their Facebook business page.
To company owners and leaders: Be very aware of the possibility that your fired employee or marketing company might have company access to your online assets. You should always check their admin privileges and access to your online accounts before firing them.
