How to Get a Confirmation Code on Facebook

By Melissa King

When you sign up for a Facebook account, you get the chance to find old friends and make a few new ones. After you create your account, an email is sent to you that contains your confirmation code. You need this confirmation code to verify your account's creation. Once you enter it on Facebook, you are ready to start using the site. If you did not get your confirmation code, Facebook can send it to you again.

Step 1

Open an Internet browser. Go to Enter your name, email, password, gender and birthday. Click "Sign Up."

Step 2

Go to the email address that you provided to Facebook. Open the Welcome email from Facebook to find the confirmation code.

Step 3

Check your email program's spam folder if you cannot find the email from Facebook. Some email services automatically see this message as spam.

Step 4

Go to the Confirm Facebook Account page if you still cannot find the email. Enter your email address. Click the drop-down menu and choose "I did not receive a confirmation email."

Step 5

Type more details about the problem, if desired, in the box below. Enter the name that you used to sign up for your account. Enter your birthday and click "Submit." Facebook will resend the email containing the code.
