How to Use Two Facebook Accounts on One Phone:

There are these methods below:

1. Install Both Apps Facebook Lite & Facebook App

If you want to use two Facebook accounts from one mobile, it’s possible. You just need to install both the original Facebook app and the Facebook lite app on your device. Installing or using both the Facebook lite app and the Facebook app on one device is allowed. 

To use the Facebook app, you need to log in to your primary account from it to handle it from there. From the Google Play Store or App Store, you need to install the Facebook lite app.

Once you’ve installed the Facebook lite app, you need to use the Facebook lite app to log into your second account. If you don’t have a second account, you need to create a second account on the Facebook lite app and then use the second account on the Facebook lite app.

In that way, you’ll be able to check and use two different Facebook accounts at the same time and on the same device. You can keep the Facebook app in the recent tabs while you’re handling your second account and vice versa. 

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: First, you need to install the Facebook app from the Google Play Store and App Store. 

Install Facebook

Step 2: Then, log in to your primary account by entering its login details such as the phone number or email and password.

2. Adding One Account & Switching Others

Another way of using two Facebook accounts at the same time is by switching from one account to another. On the Facebook app, you can add more than one account so that you can switch accounts to handle both of them from the same app on the same device. If you use this method, you won’t need to install any other app but the original Facebook app can help you do it all. 

If you have one Facebook account but want to have more than one, you need to create another account after logging out of your first account. The phone number or email address that you’ll use on your second account should be different from your primary account.

Once you’ve created your second account, you can use it on the Facebook application too. If you want to log in to your primary account, you’ll need to log out of your secondary account and then log in to your primary account. By using this method, you won’t be able to stay logged in from both accounts at the same time.
