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/

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,

    Anda harus memberikan nama belakang.
    (You have to give the last name.)
