How Do I Regain Or Claim My Page Not Under My Admin Control?

Sometimes a person sets up a page for a company, but then leaves without passing admin control to someone else at the company. Or it’s possible you may find a page that was created by someone else–maybe by people checking into your place–that clearly represents your business.

You can claim a page with proper documentation or a phone call. Go to the page, click the three dots button and choose the Is This Your Business option.

Once you start the process, Facebook will verify you with either a phone call to the business phone number listed, an email or proper documentation like a phone bill. After you verify you’re connected to the business, Facebook reviews your claim and decides whether you can be an admin of the page.

That process is for unclaimed pages only. If there is an admin, but that person has left the company or you don’t know who the admin is, there are a few things you can try:

  • If the Message button is open on the page, message the page to contact the owner.
  • If the Message button isn’t open, post a message on the page.
  • If you don’t get any response, report the page.
