How to unlock Facebook when encountering checkpoint 282

Thảo Vũ

Before using Optimal Marketing Agency’s services, many Facebook users had their accounts locked with a notification of violating community standards. The platform gives account owners 30 days to appeal the decision. During this time, the violating account will be hidden and cannot be used. If no appeal is made within the given time frame, Facebook will permanently delete the account. Let’s learn how to unlock Facebook with Optimal Marketing Agency. Above, I have shared the steps. Please apply them and wait for Facebook’s response after 72 hours.

Why is your Facebook Ads Account locked?

Facebook has strict regulations that prohibit the spread of nude, obscene, and sexually explicit images, with a special emphasis on protecting minors. Therefore, despite Facebook’s previous efforts to scan for violating content, this recent crackdown is more severe and stringent due to its association with children.

The current violation scanning is carried out by Facebook’s artificial intelligence (AI) and makes decisions based on preloaded data. Human personnel only review cases where AI is still uncertain or when users file complaints. As a result, many cases of AI-scanned and identified violations are still inaccurate. This issue has been reported by experts and users multiple times, and Facebook is still in the process of receiving feedback and making adjustments to improve their AI.

According to Optimal Marketing Agency’s expert advice, account owners who have been locked out of their Facebook accounts should follow the step-by-step instructions provided by Facebook. Account owners need to download and submit personal identification documents and wait an average of 2-3 days for their accounts to be unlocked.

The expert also explains that this process should be done independently because if information is passed on to others to do on behalf of the account owner, it may be difficult to successfully unlock Facebook because the system will recognize the unfamiliar device and IP address.

However, if the account has violated Facebook’s community standards, especially those related to obscene content involving children, the chances of recovering the account are low.

Some notes when unlocking Facebook

  • Avoid switching between 4G and Wi-Fi networks or logging out of your account from too many apps.
  • If your account is unfortunately in the “Under Review” status, switch to the network you usually use and follow the instructions sent by Facebook after accessing the app or website.
  • Do not follow the instructions on Google or YouTube to avoid spamming your account. Although some of the videos and articles are useful, most of them are outdated and may cause more harm than good to your account.

I hope the information I provided on unlocking Facebook accounts has been helpful to you. It’s important to be prepared and have experience in handling such situations. By following the instructions, you can avoid unfortunate incidents and protect yourself from scams that take advantage of users’ trust.
