Facebook Access Restricted (Bad IP) prompt me!

Post by Jessa »

Hi guys, I need your help. This is my first time I encounter such problem when logging to FB. The prompt says "You are trying to access Facebook from an IP address that's associated with a misconfigured Internet Service Provider or abusive behavior. If you think this is an error, please tell us more." Does it mean that my PC was blocked to access FB by IT department since the PC that was blocked is in my office?

Most likely FB has blocked access from your work's ISP because they are getting lots of fraudulent posts or login attempts. This does not mean that your employer is doing this. It could be another customer. I suggest that you do not attempt to access your FB account from work as you, personally, don't want to be associated with such an issue.
