How to add trusted contacts on Facebook?

Creating a Facebook account offers many useful features and that is the reason why we all have become addicted to it. The ability to chat via text, audio calls, video calls, send GIFs, images, etc. just made Facebook an inevitable part of our lives. Its security features are also so advanced that you can never get locked out of your Facebook account unless you have enabled all the security measures it offers.

You can simply reset your FB password using your recovery information such as email address and phone number. But in case you want to recover your Facebook account without an email address or phone number, you can also do it using the trusted contacts option. To use trusted contacts to recover your Facebook account, you must have added at least 3-5 trusted friends who you can contact whenever you need to.
