Hi everybody. A friend of mine has asked me to create an extra Facebook account because he couldn’t manage to do it himself (he’s not a computer buff). Okay, “how hard can it be?” I thought: a new e-mail address and some personal info and it’s a done deal... except it didn’t go that way. I created one and once I created it I got a pop-up notice that asks me to confirm the account with a text message. Could it be the IP? With a new e-mail address, a different IP and it still did the same thing; even when I deleted my cookies and changed the browser I got the chance to create another account, but then the same problem reoccurs; I tried to reboot the computer but nothing changes, but I’m convinced that by changing the computer I would bypass the problem, at least in the beginning, and then it would come back. At this point it’s almost like Facebook knows that I’m trying to create an extra account rather than treating me like a first-time user. Do you guys have any idea what parameters Facebook uses to determine when they ask you or don’t ask you to involve your telephone? And how could they connect to FB in, for example, an internet cafe? Do they have to enter their cell phone number?
Thank you

you need to enter your phone number and then they will send you activation code....then you need to enter that code for activating your new account completely :)

Ask your friend for his mobile number, so you can continue to activate the account. You'll need it anyway, see below.

Remember to Enable 2-step verification. This will help prevent the account from being compromised in the future, if his password is ever stolen:

With 2-step authentication : Facebook > Login + Password > Verification by SMS/TXT > Access = Success
Without 2-step authentication : Facebook > Stolen Login + Password > Access = Compromised

Hope this helps a bit more. :D
