Trying to help people with the most common passwords problems they face, Facebook accepts three forms of your password; Yes three forms of your password, this means you can login with 3 forms of your password:

  1. Your original password.
  2. Your original password with the first letter capitalized. This is only for mobile devices, which sometimes capitalize the first character of a word.
  3. Your original password with the case reversed, this means that you have to revert the case of your password’s letters, if your password is password1234, you can log in with PASSWORD1234 and  If your password is PaSsWoRd1234, you can log in with pAsSwOrD1234, but not any other combination of lower case and upper case characters.
