What is Facebook ID and what is it for?

The Facebook ID is a string of numbers associated with a Facebook account, but does not identify the person or the Facebook user. By the way, Facebook IDs are also present in pages that have been created in this social network and in this way a user has his own Facebook ID and the page he created and manages has the respective Facebook ID (they are not the same).

Yes, in fact, they will be able to write your Facebook ID in exchange for entering their email or telephone number in the box where they are asked to log in and in the other box, they will enter their respective password and then click on Log in and log in without no problem.
