How to make Single Name Account on Facebook or How to Hide Last Name on Facebook.

Many people have been searching on Google about How to make Single Name account on Facebook? or How to Hide Last Name on Facebook? Well, here is a simple method explaining how to make single name account on facebook successfully. But one thing you should make a note is Indonesians are officially allowed to have single name accounts on facebook as most of the people on Indonesia have only one name and that’s why facebook allows them to have single name.

So here what we are doing in this post is we’re pretending that we are from Indonesia. So I hope you understood the logic!! Also one thing you should know is only Indonesians are legally eligible to have this single name accounts and rest other country people are not!! So now it’s your wish whether to perform this trick or not. Simply I can skip all these warning steps and can directly tell you to just perform this trick so that I can gain visitors to this post. But I’m not that kind of person. I love my site readers. I always give high preference to their safety. So that’s why I have warned you about performing this one name process. 🙂

Steps for how to make Single name account (or) how to Hide last name on facebook:


Step 1: From your Mozilla Firefox browser, open your facebook account and go to “General Account Settings“.

Step 2: Change language settings to “Bahasa Indonesia“.

Step 3: Go to any of below links,http://www.proxynova.com/proxy-server-list/country-id/

Select Proxy country=Indonesia, port=8080 & click ‘Update results’. Now copy the proxy address of port – 8080 from those results.

In general the proxy address will in this format –

Just for example I’m giving you this proxy = Try it,  but it may work or may not work.Mostly select new proxies which were updated there recently. [Check the time of recently updated proxies].While performing this process, some of the proxies may not work and some proxies will work just like 1 out of 3 trails. So be patient while doing this single name account process.

Step 4: Now you  have to change your Firefox browser proxy as shown in the below pictures,

Go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Settings.

How to make Single Name Account on Facebook or How to Hide Last Name on Facebook.


Now click  ‘Settings’ and select “Manual proxy configuration:” – paste the proxy & port-8080 where you got from above 2 links-Proxynova.com or hidemyass.com and tick the box that says “Use this proxy server for all protocols” and finally click OK in settings dialog box.

    Using public proxy is not safe. I think you should using VPN, SSH. You can find some free VPN from trust service. Here is the link for reference: http://gatherproxy.com/vpn
    You can also try Web Proxy for unblock facebook 🙂

    Its not working fr me…. i've psted the correct proxy… bt still it is showing to enter lst name :/ wht shud i do?

    • Avinash says:

      It depends upon the selection of the recent proxies from those sites , Try to select recently updated proxies only . Some proxies may work & some wont work .. So try 6-7 proxies untill which you can get the working proxy .

          This trick is not working nowadays. It hardly works with the new proxies only. Btw, fb is banning the accounts who have single name accounts. So it’s better to stay away from this!! 😀
