✎ Key Points:

» To find a Facebook account by phone number, the best way is to save the phone number on the phone contact and upload the contact with the Facebook app. This will instantly give you the names of the people you are on Facebook. 

How to Find Facebook Account By Phone Number:

Let’s discuss all the possible methods to find someone’s Facebook via phone number.

1. Directly Search for Person

On Facebook, you would have searched for a friend or a relative by putting his or her username in the search field.

Similarly, to find someone through a phone number, you have to put the targeted person’s phone number in the search field. The search result will show you the names of the related and nearly related people. From the result list, find and click on your person’s username.

🔴 Steps To Follow:

For more clear understanding, follow the steps:

Step 1: Open your > “Facebook” app on a mobile device or PC and log into your account.

Step 2: On entering your account, you will see a “Search” field with a search icon, on the top of the first page.
