Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I have more than two emails on my Facebook account?
A: Facebook only allows uses to have two emails on their Facebook accounts. Allowing another email on your Facebook account should help you with any issues you may encounter with your original email. Allowing to add more emails on your Facebook account may be an overkill and won’t be of much help. If you want to have a new email on your account, delete an old one to give a space for the new email address.

Q: I forgot my Facebook password. Can I add a new email on my Facebook account if I forgot my Facebook password?
A: You cannot add an email address to your Facebook account if you forgot your password. Even if your login details are cached in the browser, Facebook will require users to re-enter their password in cases where changes to your Facebook details are not authorized.

Q: Can I use any email address to add to my Facebook account?
A: You can use any email address as long as the email is tagged as spam or disposable. We discourage users to use disposable mails (even if they go undetected) as they are prone to be deleted or hacked.
