Windows not Mac
Expert:  Jess M. replied 4 months ago.

Thank you for writing back with that information.

On your Windows computer, are you using Internet Explorer as your web browser?

Also, do you login to your Facebook account using an email address or a phone number?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I use a phone number. I'm not sure if I'm using internet explorer
Expert:  Jess M. replied 4 months ago.

Can you please tell me what exactly is the error message that you are getting?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
When I try to sign on to FB I get "your account has been disabled for pretending to be someone else". I have no idea what Facebook is talking about
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I was just able to sign into my FB account. Everything is fixed. I no longer need your help
Expert:  Jess M. replied 4 months ago.

This means that someone could have reported your account as a bogus or impostor account, thus your account was blocked.

Please try logging in again using the correct login information and see if your account is re-activated.

Ok. Thank you for ur help
Expert:  Jess M. replied 4 months ago.

You're welcome.

When someone reports your account, Facebook locks the account but after further investigation and checking of your account activity, especially if Facebook found out that the report was fake or an error, the account should be re-activated.

I hope that helped.
