When you get a new phone number due to a move or switching to a new provider, you may want to update your account settings on Facebook to reflect the change. This will help you notify all your Facebook contacts of your new contact information. Updating your contact information will also help if you need to provide a phone number for verification when logging in or dealing with customer service. How do you add your new phone number to your Facebook account? You can contact customer service here, and you can follow the steps below.

Adding a first time or new phone number:

  1. Select the circle with a down pointing arrow in the top right corner of your Facebook profile.

Why does GetHuman Write How-to Guides for Facebook Problems?

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Facebook in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department. From there, we realized that consumers still needed more detailed help solving the most common problems, so we expanded to this set of guides, which grows every day. And if you spot any issues with our How Do I Add My New Phone Number to My Facebook Account? guide, please let us know by sending us feedback. We want to be as helpful as possible.
