    I have had about 10 Facebook accounts (out of 45) from my FaceDominator campaigns just become temporarily locked due to the following error message, indicating that it was detected "as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook" (phishing). My activities have been very minimal (few likes, comment and a share per day - no spam or monetisation), the accounts have been running for a few months. I'll be unable to get the accounts back most likely as the only verification option is getting a text to the mobile number they were signed up with, which I don't have access to.

    I haven't had this as an issue for blocking before and I am wondering if this is due to my activities or if it is possibly due to something with the FaceDominator software that led Facebook to see it as a bot signing in? It made me curious. I had a version that was from 10 October, and they released an update on the 6th which I hadn't applied yet. But if it's not to do with the software then I'd like to work out what I might be doing wrong. Thanks kindly

    This was the error message:

    "Your Account is Temporarily Locked

    We’ve detected suspicious activity on your Facebook account and have temporarily locked it as a security precaution.

    It’s likely that your account was compromised as a result of entering your password on a website designed to look like Facebook. This type of attack is known as phishing. Learn more in the Help Center.

    Over the next few steps we’ll walk you through a security check to help secure your account, and let you log back in."

    facebook bots can't distinguish, i have never used facedominator but does it have it's own browser? check it's user agent and see if you can change it to something normal.

    What do you mean by the Facebook bots can't distinguish?

    Yeah, FaceDominator runs using "behind the scenes" campaigns, but you can also "Open with Embed Browser" which lets you run the profile from a browser screen to do what you wish as normal. I'm not sure what their coding is for this and how solid the fingerprints and User Agents are.
