An Email is sent which looks like from Facebook at first glance, it says your Facebook account has been “temporarily disabled for identity check”
“Your access has been temporarily disabled for identity check, it can be activated once you verify the details linked with your account.
This step is a part of our online-security monitoring which helps in keeping data up-to-date by updating user’s information into its latest form.
We require you to verify your ID using any of the documents issued by your government through which you can claim your account later.
If you fail to perform ID verification, your access will be disabled for security concerns.
Facebook uses up to mark security standard to protect its user to all potential online threats.”
Verdict:- Fake News
Explanation:- Phishing is when someone tries to get access to your Facebook account by sending you a suspicious message or link that asks for your personal information. If they get into your account, they may use your account to send spam.
Example: Joey gets an email saying he needs to log into his Facebook account and read an important message about his account. The email links to a strange looking website asking him to enter his username and password.
