Add a Phone Number to Facebook with iPhone 6
Edited by Kara, Crystal, Jen M
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to add a phone number to your Facebook profile while using the iPhone 6.
Unlock the phone by holding your finger on the home button, which doubles as a fingerprint scanner if that option is enabled.
Alternatively, swipe and enter the passcode.
Tap on the Facebook icon to open the application.
It will open to the last section we were in the last time the application was open. In this example, it opened to the Timeline. We need to access the settings. Sometimes it might be confusing to find the needed settings on Facebook.
Tap on "More" in the bottom right-hand corner.
It is the fifth option in the bottom bar.
Scroll down and tap on "Privacy Shortcuts".
Tap on "General".
These options include "Name", "Email", "Phone" and more.
Tap on "Phone" to add a phone number.
Tap on "Set Up Facebook Texts".
We don't have to set up Facebook texts but is easier if we have a number registered.
Facebook will include the country code by default, so all we have to do is enter the phone number and tap on "Continue".
Facebook will send us a code to confirm the phone number.
When the code arrives, type the code into the "Confirmation Code" text box using the keypad.
Tap on "Confirm" in the blue bar.
If we did not receive a code, we can tap on "Send Code Again" in the gray bar and Facebook will send another code.
If it is successful, the page will say "Text Messaging On".
The phone number has been linked to the Facebook account. Facebook will text us our notifications, but we can change that in the settings. Tap on "Close".
Tap the white back arrow in the top left corner of the screen.
The phone number is now registered.
If we want to, we can add more than one phone number.
This is how to add a phone number to your Facebook profile.
