Some Facebook users had the unpleasant surprise of no longer having access to their account on Monday.

And the worst thing about this story is that there is no real reason for it.

When they wanted to connect to their Facebook account on Monday morning, the users in question saw a message appear indicating that their account had been deactivated following apparent violations of the TOS of the social network, reports Phonandroid.

However, they had not received any prior message from the company.

"We are aware that some users are having problems accessing their Facebook accounts and we are working to resolve them as quickly as possible," Andy Stone, spokesperson for Meta, Facebook's parent company, said on Twitter.

The bug finally solved

Finally, things got back to normal during the day, all users were able to regain access to their account.

On the other hand, Facebook did not wish to communicate on the number of people who were affected by this problem.

A while back, some users who didn't enable two-factor authentication as Facebook required also ended up with their accounts blocked.
