How to Create a Fake Facebook Profile

Three Parts:

This wikiHow teaches you how to create a secondary fake Facebook account. Making a fake Facebook account in and of itself is fairly easy; the tough part is making the account believable. Once you have your profile's details worked out, you can create the profile itself by using the Facebook website on a computer, or by using the Facebook mobile app on an iPhone or Android.


Making a Believable Fake Account

  1. Set up a new email account.You shouldn't use an existing personal email address for your fake profile; instead, create a brand-new email address that you use only for your fake account.
    • Refrain from using your fake email for any services that tie back to you (e.g., login information for a bank account or a subscription service).
    • Use a different email service than the one that you use for your normal Facebook account. For example, if you use Gmail on your current account, create a Yahoo or Outlook address for the fake account.
  2. Determine an identity.You don't need to enter very much personal information on Facebook, but you should have a few things in mind:
    • Likes and interests— Draft a list of things in which your alias is interested. Hobbies, daily activities, and favorite entertainment should be on your mind.
    • Date of birth— Pick a DOB that correlates with your projected age. Depending on the likes and interests you choose to put on your profile, this will vary.
    • Name— Pick a name that's common enough that it doesn't draw attention, but not so common that it raises suspicion. Avoid common aliases (e.g., "John Smith"). Consider picking a name what was popular during your "birth year" here.
  3. Understand the "less is more" rule.Adding believable details that no one can verify—such as photos, interests, and an appropriate current location—is fine, but don't overdo it. Adding details that people can verify as inaccurate will detract from your profile's credibility and ultimately give it away as fake.
    • For example, don't list a specific school or workplace on your account, as determining whether or not someone actually attended a school or frequents a workplace is fairly easy.
    • The more vague your profile's details are, the more believable those details will be.
  4. Limit the number of similarities between you and your fake profile.Your fake profile's current location, age, name, interests, job, and so on should vary noticeably from your actual profile. Additionally, the manner in which you interact with people should be different.
    • For example, if you use proper grammar and punctuation on your real account, try using poor grammar or capitalization on your fake profile.
    • Things like your age and your interests are impossible for anyone else to verify, so feel free to make these up without fear of anyone catching on.
    • You'll also want to refrain from adding more than one or two people you know on your fake profile, and never add two people who you wouldn't know if you hadn't been in a specific place (e.g., a college) or event.
  5. Use real photos.Pulling photos off of Google is a guaranteed way to get caught stealing content, so you'll have to take and upload original photos to your profile. Make sure that there aren't any identifying aspects of that photos that will give away your actual location.
    • For example, you might upload a picture of a generic-looking meadow instead of a shot of a street in your city.
  6. Avoid showing your actual face.Naturally, you don't want anyone to be able to match your actual face to the fake account. For this reason, you'll want to avoid posting photos of yourself.
    • This goes for photos of your friends and family as well.
    • Plenty of people use pictures of their pets (or, in your case, someone else's pets), so refusing to show your actual face isn't suspicious.
  7. .It doesn't matter how convincing your fake profile is if no one is around to interact with it, so add some friends! Try to add people from the area in which your profile says you live, as well as people from groups or interests that you've listed on your profile.
    • Keep in mind that harassing people with your fake account, apart from being wrong, may result in your account being suspended.
  8. Like pages.Clicking theLikebutton next to pages your profile might feasibly enjoy will add those pages to your profiles "Likes". This is an easy way to add more depth to your profile.
  9. Show, don't tell.People rarely talk about things like their personalities and other mundane topics; explicitly stating facts about yourself in hopes of filling in the blanks about your profile will only serve as a red flag for people in your Friends list.
    • You can instead demonstrate things about your personality by adding information to your profile's "About" section, liking pages, updating your interests, and so on.
  10. Limit your Messenger communication with others.This is another case in which the "less is more" rule applies: the more you have to talk about yourself or your activities, the easier it will be for another user to discover that your account is fake. Unless you absolutely have to discuss something with another Facebook user in private, consider avoiding Messenger entirely.
    • If you do use Messenger, remember to stick to grammar and other communication methods you've established in your posts (e.g., use casual, informal grammar in Messenger if that's how you post).
  11. Stay active.Most people who use Facebook are fairly active on their account throughout the day, so make sure that you're adding friends, liking content, uploading once in awhile, and occasionally updating your work or contact details.
    • You can use your browser's incognito mode to log into your fake profile without having to log out of your real profile.
    • If you want to take a break from your fake Facebook account, consider posting a status such as "Going on vacation for a bit". You can even upload photos from your "vacation" the next time you log on.
    • Posting life events every once in a while will lend credibility to your updates. For example, you might post a one-year anniversary for your job.

Community Q&A

  • Question
    How do I access my alternate Facebook account when I'm using my main one?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can log out of your main one, and log into your alternate one. If you'd like to use both at the same time, you will need to log into your alternate account using a different browser. For example, you could have one account open in Firefox. and another one open in Chrome.
  • Question
    If I add photos of my life, everybody will recognize me, and if I use an email, can't my IP address be tracked?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Not really. Your photos don't have to include family, friends, popular places nearby your area, or you. Some people even take pictures of themselves in masks or customes for fun, or obscure, artsy pictures in which not much of their face can be seen. Your IP however could be tracked.
  • Question
    How can I get fake friends?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Play a popular FB game, which encourages making friends with people you don't know in order to progress.
  • Question
    What do I do if Facebook disables my account?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can try to appeal your case to Facebook directly, but otherwise it might be easier to just create an entirely new account.
  • Question
    Can I use my own phone or computer to make a fake Facebook account without it being traced back?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Anything you do online can be traced back to you. If you want your IP address to appear elsewhere, try a VPN or a proxy, remembering that some proxies are immediately obvious too.
  • Question
    What if one of my Facebook friends ask to meet in person?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Just ignore them or say you can't.
  • Question
    Is it illegal to create a fake Facebook account using a picture and a name that is similar to another same person?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    That depends on why you are making the account. If it's a harmless prank, nothing will probably come of it, although Facebook will likely close your account. If you're making the account to maliciously harass or threaten someone, the person you are imitating may very well call the police on you.
  • Question
    How can I get I fake pictures?

    Try using a number you can get for free from Google Voice, Skype, or another VoIP service.
