If you're creating a new Facebook account and didn't get the code to confirm your mobile phone number:
  1. Make sure that you entered the correct mobile number. Don't use any special characters (+ or -) or leading zeros. If you entered the wrong number, you can update it and send the SMS again.
  2. Try sending the SMS with the code again. If you see a message that says you've reached the code limit, please wait a couple of days and try again.
  3. Try sending an SMS containing only "Fb" to 32665 or the alternate number for your country from the Shortcodes by country list below.
  4. In some countries, you may need to wait up to 12 hours to get the SMS. We're working with mobile carriers to resolve this issue.
  5. You can also try creating a Facebook account with your email instead of a mobile number.
If you added your mobile phone number to your existing Facebook account but didn't get the confirmation code, make sure that the mobile number is correct. If you entered the wrong number, you can update it and send the SMS again.

When you create a new password, make sure that it's at least 6 characters long. Try to use a complex combination of numbers, letters and punctuation marks.
If you see a message letting you know the password you entered isn't strong enough, try mixing together uppercase and lowercase letters. You can also make the password more complex by making it longer with a phrase or series of words that you can easily remember, but no one else knows.
Keep in mind that your Facebook password should also be different than the passwords you use to log into other accounts, like your email or bank account.
