How to Get Your Facebook Password Back Easily

by Morgan O'Connor

Facebook has an option that allows you to remain signed in on your computer. This means you could access the site for weeks or even months without ever entering your password. While this is convenient, it can also make it easy to completely forget your password. When something goes wrong and you end up signed out of Facebook, getting back in may seem impossible. Fortunately, you do not need to remain cut off from your online social life forever.
