While creating a new Facebook account, you may be prompted to enter a phone number either during the sign-up process or later. Hence, we are providing below the steps to Create Facebook Account without Phone number.
Sign Up For Facebook Without Using Phone Number
As mentioned above, Facebook will either ask you to enter in a phone number during the initial Sign Up process or a few days after allowing you to create a Facebook Account.
However, many users are not comfortable with the idea of providing their phone number to social media apps due to privacy and other reasons. Also, there are some frugal users who use smartphones without a Phone Number or SIM Card.
