Trusted Contacts are the friends that can securely help you on your call to get back in your account by first making confirm that its you and then by giving you security codes, after that you will be able to access your account again with new password.

To enable this option you need to first go to Account settings>Security>then click on edit option of Trusted Contacts, you can also use this link for direct access to security page

Now whenever you got stuck in sign-in problem with your account, you have an option to utilize your any three trusted contacts out of five by making them call for help. And also don't forget to contact Facebook if your account has been hacked.
