How do I confirm my email address or mobile phone number in facebook?

To finish creating an account, you need to confirm that you own the email address or mobile phone number that you used to create the account:

  • To confirm your mobile number, enter the code that you receive via text message (SMS) in the Confirm box that appears when you log in.
  • To confirm your email address, click or tap the link in the email you received when you created the account.

Confirming your email address or mobile number helps facebook to know that we’re sending your account info to the right place.

Note: You have to confirm your email address or mobile number as soon as possible. You may not be able to use your account until you confirm your email or mobile number. If you do not confirm your account, it may be deleted after one year of inactivity.

I can’t find my Facebook sign-up confirmation email.

If you created a Facebook account with an email address, Facebook sent a confirmation link to that email account. If you can’t find your confirmation email:

  • Check your junk mail folder. If you’re using Gmail, check your Social emails.
  • Make sure that you entered the correct email address. If you entered the wrong email, you can change it and send the email again.
  • You can try creating your Facebook account with a mobile phone number instead of an email address.
