In order to finish creating a Facebook account, you need to confirm that you own the email or mobile phone number that you used to create the account:
- To confirm your mobile number, enter the code you get via text message (SMS) in the Confirmbox that shows up when you log in (just like the one shown in the image below). Learn what to do if you didn’t get the SMS.
- Confirming your email you will need to click or tap the link in the email you got when you created the account. Learn what to do if you can’t find the email.
Confirming your email or mobile number assures Facebook that they are sending your account info to the right place. Also, you will need to confirm your email or mobile number as soon as possible because you may not be able to use your account until you confirm your email or mobile number.
