Trust Your Friends to Help You Recover your Facebook Password

Facebook came out yesterday with an update on the 2011 feature 'Trusted Friends,' now called 'Trusted Contacts.' Basically, you choose three to five people in your friends list who you trust with your Facebookhood and if you ever forget, lose or erase your password, you can ask for their help in recovering it.

Facebook is famous for locking users out for not trusting wifi networks, IP addresses and logging on through different laptops, so it's no surprise the company has launched a new feature to help users get back onto the site, faster. How it works is the three to five Facebook friends you picked will all have a different security code sent to them and you'll need to input at least 3 of them to have access your account password again. Now all you need to do is guarantee that all of your five friends remember their security codes.
