    As you well know that if you start adding Fbook friends by the thousands you will ultimately get hit with their new security feature where they give you a name and you must match it with a face. This is a timed security feature but I just defeated it. It's a bit bruteforce but here are some ways to narrow it down.

    First you must know that this takes your account getting blocked but you come back in 3 hours when it's unlocked to try again and that's when you beat the game.


    1.The first time around go take a screen shot of each security check page. So you will have 5 screen shots of each request to click the person in the picture

    2. You most likely will not guess any right and will be locked out of your account after 3 test resets. But what you will have is a total of 15 screen shots.

    3. Now that you're banned from the test for three hours open up all screen shots. Notice how for each security question many of them use the same names as options. For example Question 1,3,5 may have an option for "John Henderson".

    4. Take all the repeating names and open up another face book account and take a picture/screen shot of the person it belongs to and have the names with the faces pulled up in a document or paint or w/e program you use for immediate access. (Many of the name choices from the first time you took the tests will show up the 2nd time around)

    5. Come back three hours later open up the test in one browser , open a 2nd private browser and login with a facebook acct, finally open the document that has the repeated names with a picture of the member. Now begin your test, you should be able to cut down the research needed in the 2nd browser by 50% giving you enough time to look up the 2-3 obscure names in the private browser to see who the member could be. Obviously the repeating names you already have pictures pulled up for and a quick glance is all that is needed.

    This may sound tedious but I uploaded 45k @fbook accounts to my page yesterday woke up blocked and three hours later got my account back and just uploaded another 30k.

    I had pictures to make this a little easier for you to understand but I'm at my BHW size limit. The point here? Narrow down the people you have to research by using and research the repeated options.



    ALso out of respect, saving face and just to give their algorithm some joy after you get your acct back you will be presented at the top of your facebook page with a section that says "Don't Miss the Good Stuff" it will ask you to follow your closest friends and the same people you just verified will be there. Click on follow all of them.. It's the human thing to do if you really were friends with them and prevents one more red flag.

    Handy workaround - but don't they still limit your account if your friend requests/adds aren't reciprocated?

    Not if you use https://www.facebook.com/invite.php with @fbook emails

    and do not add commas like it says just one email per a line.

    Scrape relevant ppl for your cause/page. This helps facebook, you and the customer.

    Literally I add around 12k at a time. You will get a restriction on the account that says something like "Some of your account features will be restricted" But all your invites will go out and in a few days your account will be back unrestricted. The good part... while restricted your friends start pouring in.

    To have your account get out of restriction is pretty simple. On fbook go down to help and then type "compromised account" and fill it out and when the phone number part pops up click the option that says "Release" (I think it's release or w/e means NO This number is wrong) then use a GV throw away number to verify and within mins you're back.

    Obviously take care when going this route as if it's abused like anything else it will be patched plus it's public information at this point.

    Just wanted to add a quick follow up. The restriction can last up to 30 days, you will still be allowed to add friends through invite.php but during that time you do not DO NOT want to point and click on add friends through the fbook gui. This will cause permanent blocks.

    2nd an even easier method is just stay organized. Use the @fbook method and save them in excel and when you take the test have the excel sheep up and you can ctrl-f and type in the last name and it will pull up the email and you can then toss that into fbook for instant results.
