How to Create a Second Facebook Account (New Facebook Account).

Facebook doesn’t allow their users to have two or more personal accounts, as it is against their Terms of Service. If they find out that you have two personal accounts, they can shut them down.

However, of course it is possible to create more than one Facebook account for your own use.

This is how you do it:

Step 1:

Register a new email address, if you have only one. Use Gmail, Hotmail (  or I find that  is the easiest one to use, as it will take only a few minutes to sign up.

Step 2:

Open your browser and open an “Incognito” session. All browsers have an Incognito or Private Tab. Go to settings in your browser and find the “New Private Window” or “Incoqnito Mode” or similar.

Step 3:

Visit the Facebook homepage ( and fill in the sign-up form. Enter your new email address which has not yet been used to register for a previous Facebook account, then your first and last name, a password, your gender and your birthdate. Don’t fill out the mobile phone number!

You can make any variation of your name, if you want, or make up a completely new name. However, I recommend to use a variation of your name, or an abbreviation, because if you get locked out of your account, Facebook may ask for a photo id to activate your account again. You cannot have just 1 letter in your First or Last name, though, so “A Smith” will not work, but “Ann Smith” or [email protected] Smith will. Also, take note of the birthdate and year, that you use to sign up, as Facebook will also ask for that, if you get locked out.

Step 4:

Click on the green “Sign up” button below the form. Your new Facebook us account ready.

Facebook will send you a confirmation email  to your email account, which you will need to click to activate your new Facebook Account.
