How Do I Set Up a Facebook Account for My Husband on the Same Computer That Mine Is On?

By Angela M. Wheeland

Facebook permits each member of your household to have a separate Facebook account. That means you and your husband can both have Facebook accounts, as long as you have separate email addresses. You can log in, browse Facebook and sign off, and then your husband can log in to Facebook from the same computer. If you have more than one computer in your home, you can both log in to Facebook at the same time. If your husband doesn't yet have a Facebook account, you can create one for him in just a few minutes.

Step 1

Click "Account" in the upper left corner of your News Feed page. Click "Log Out" to sign out of your account. The Facebook homepage loads on your screen.

Step 2

Type your husband's name, email address and a preferred password in the designated fields.

Step 3

Click "Male" from the "Sex" field and select his birthday from the drop-down lists.

Step 4

Click the "Sign Up" button.

Step 5

Enter the security code displayed and click "Sign Up."

Step 6

Follow the on-screen instructions to search for friends on your husband's account or click "Skip this Step."

Step 7

Enter your husband's personal information, including education and employer. Click "Save and Continue."

Step 8

Click "Upload a Photo" to upload a picture of your husband. Click "Save and Continue."

Step 9

Enter any additional information to complete your husband's profile.

Tips & Warnings

  • Facebook prohibits creating accounts for others without their permission. Consult with your husband before creating his account. After creating the account, give your husband the password.
  • You cannot register more than one account to a single email address.
