Login to your Facebook account with different usernames
Did you know that your Facebook account has 3 passwords?. It turns out that you can use different usernames to login; no matter which login name you want to use, you should be able to login successfully. These are the possible usernames you can use:
- Your e-mail address. This is the most common way to login.
- Your Profile Name (Vanity URL of your profile).
- Your Mobile number (only if you’ve associated it with your account).
Why too much usernames?
The reason for this is very simple: as Facebook was growing up, many users were using mobile devices to login to Facebook. This means that sometimes, it’s easier for the people to type their username or mobile phone instead of their e-mail address.
A lot of Facebook users have not linked their account with their mobile number yet. It’s considered a good practice to link your account and your number, for security reasons. It’s an extra layer of security to prevent unauthorized changes and/or hacking-related issues. If you’re phone number and you’re account are already linked, try to login to Facebook with your number.
