There’s pornography / offensive material on your Facebook timeline

Problem: There’s pornography or other offensive material on your Facebook timeline

Facebook Hacked Logo

When you find pornography or other offensive material on your Facebook timeline there are a few possible reasons.

Possible reasons:
  1. Personal attack: You have upset someone or someone is acting unusually and they are posting the content themselves (i.e. it’s not a hacker or virus). If you haven’t upset someone then it’s unlikely this is the reason.
  2. Friend’s Facebook account hacked: Your friend probably had a weak password and so their account has been hacked. Someone is posting as them and they don’t know about it.
  3. Your Facebook account is hacked: You had a weak password and so your Facebook account has been hacked. The offensive posts look like you’ve posted them, but you didn’t.
Solutions
  1. Personal attack:
    1. Contact the person via phone or text to check if they know what’s happening.
    2. If it is a personal attack then block them on Facebook and possibly on your mobile phone too.
  2. Friend’s Facebook account hacked: Ask them to delete their posts from your timeline and change their Facebook password to something stronger.
  3. Your Facebook account is hacked: Remove the posts from your timeline and change your Facebook password to something stronger.
Possible Issues
  • You can’t get in to your Facebook account: A hacker got in to your Facebook account and changed your password so you’ve lost access.
