If you want to create a Facebook page or wish to manage a Facebook page, you have to have a personal Facebook account as well. But fortunately, there is a way to create one, and still remain private.
In this Facebook page tutorial, we are going to show you how to create a business Facebook page without a personal account.
Do you need a personal account to create a business Facebook page?
A couple of years ago it was possible to create a business Facebook page without a personal Facebook profile but this is no longer possible.
So you might have found some tutorials online that show you how to create a Facebook page without a Facebook account, but those processes no longer work, so don’t bother replicating them.
You have to create a personal Facebook account if you want to create or manage a Facebook page. But I understand that you might not want to create a personal Facebook profile because of privacy or any similar reasons.
But don’t worry, we are going to show you two ways how you can create a Facebook profile and still stay completely anonymous.
How to create a business Facebook page without a personal account? (2 methods)
There are two kinds of workarounds if you want to create a business Facebook page, but you don’t have a personal Facebook account:
- create a throwaway Facebook account with not your real name
- create a Facebook profile but make yourself as invisible as it is possible
Create a throwaway Facebook account with a fake name
So all you have to do is to create a throwaway Facebook accountwith a fake name. Facebook doesn’t require uploading a profile photo where your face is clearly visible, or you can also just skip the photo upload part.
You can make your Facebook profile by going to facebook.com and clicking on ‘Create New Account’
Risks related to Facebook page without a real Facebook profile
Although you will have no problem creating a Facebook account without your real name, you have to keep in mind that there is a risk related to this method.

So instead of using the fake Facebook profile method, we would recommend the following.
