    I have a regular Facebook account. Never had an issue with it all.

    Today I logged in but entered the password wrong the first time. Now it wants me to upload an ID?

    Is this normal? Like I said, no spam ever from that account or even this IP or this computer.

    Not to mention, I can still use that account on my phone, it only has blocked me on desktop? Is Facebook run by idiots?

    BRO DON'T LOG OUT FROM YOUR PHONE
    before doing it make sure to create some other profiles and give admin rights from your pages to them
    Something similar to this happened to me few weeks ago but they were asking for a pic of me after sending one they immediately disabled my profile and i lost my pages

    If the account is real then upload an ID for you to recover it..
    Then log out in all devices and change your password..
    you never know you might have clicked a phising site and they know your password..
    Its better to be safe..cheers

    Thanks for the info.

    Just for background, this is a new laptop so I have never logged into Facebook before on it. I tried to enter the password but must have done it wrong because on the second try they sent me a code to use via email. I used the code, then it said I was wrong again, then they sent me a password reset email, which I did. Then it did the photo verify request. The I got another Facebook email saying "someone" tried to login and asking if it was me, but non link or anything to say it was me.

    Seems totally insane and an ass backward system.

    I had to upload an ID to my account just to register my name because they believed I was trying to enter in a fake name/nickname.

    The thing is, Instagram has a similar issue. If you start a real account, the app suggests you go and like a bunch of things and follow a bunch of famous people. If you do that, you end up getting banned because that is what spam accounts do, but the app tells you to do it! It's so backwards.
