The Trusted contacts feature is an alternative to secret questions (which users usually forget) or email verification. A Facebook spokesperson told Mashable

"This solution provides users with another way to recover their password and can choose which method to use. In addition, while you might forget your security questions (or never set one up) you never forget who your friends are."

This Facebook feature might come in handy in many many situations which include losing your phone or a fried computer where you don’t remember your Facebook or Email account passwords.
