Delegated Account Recovery with Facebook

Delegated Account Recovery lets people use their Facebook account to recover access to your service if they forget their password. It is easy to set up and use, more secure than a password reset email, and more stable than a phone number.

This product is currently in a closed beta.

Don't worry, you can still try it out today. Follow the instructions in the Step-by-Step Guide to build your integration. You can create and manage bug bounty test users here which you can use to immediately test Delegated Account Recovery with Facebook for your site.

Once you've finished building and testing your integration, you can apply for our closed beta program to enable all accounts to use Delegated Account Recovery with your site. As part of the review process for the closed beta, the Facebook Identity Tools team may contact you to collaborate on topics including security, customer messaging and the use of the Facebook brand in your deployment.
