Your trusted friends' contact will do the work. Facebook has added a Trusted Contact feature that allows you to add friends to your Trusted Contacts so that they can help you to recover your lost password.

How to enable Facebook Trusted Contacts
To start with the trusted contact feature first click on the triangular-shaped icon on the home page of your Facebook account and select the Settings option.

From the General tab click on the Security and login menu.

In the Security and login tab, scroll down to Setting up security

Click on the Edit button to enable “Trusted Contact” feature and to choose friends.

Click on choose friends to select your trusted contacts.

A screen will pop up, on it, click on the “choose Trusted contacts“ option to continue.

Having done that, now, enter 3 to 5 names of your friends whom you trust, so that they can give you the security codes whenever you forget your Facebook password.

Click on the “Confirm” button to see the list of trusted contact friends you have added.

How to Recover your Facebook Passwords using Trusted Contacts
To recover your lost Facebook password via your trusted contacts, you must first and foremost be logged on Facebook and then click on the “Forgot your Password” option.

And then enter the Facebook email account that you are not able to access and click on the Search button.

Next, enter the email ID that you have not used on Facebook or simply create a new email and click on the Continue button.

Now, call your Facebook friends that you already added to your Trusted Contacts list and asked them to visit this URL: https://www.facebook.com/recover.

Friends that are on your trusted contacts will give you a code. If you have added 3 friends to your trusted contacts list then you have to enter the code given by all your 3 friends.

Once you have entered the code and click continue, Facebook will send you message to recover your account. The message will be delivered to the email id that you provided.

Final Note:
In the future when you forget your Facebook Password or lost the Facebook password or someone hacked into your Facebook account, just give a call to all your Facebook Trusted contacts and let them know you need their help to regain access to your account.

So at that time each of the Facebook Trusted Contact gets a security code, that you have to enter on the Facebook recovery page to regain access to your account. Let us know in the comment box if you will enable this feature.
