How to Remove Your Middle and Last Name from Facebook [Video Tutorial]

Facebook is the most used Social network ever. Almost everybody has a Facebook account. In fact one can get loads of information about somebody from their Facebook account. When it comes to privacy, Facebook might not be the best platform. As it is said that there are all kinds of workaround for everything, therefore there is a workaround for removing the middle name and last name from your Facebook profile as well.

In order to create a Facebook account the user has to pass through various security checks, this is because Facebook does not want any scam or fake profile. To ensure this, one of the measures which Facebook takes into consideration is that it does not allows anybody to miss out the last name. Hence one cannot create his/her profile only by first name and middle name, it is mandatory to fill out your last name as well.

But guys at Wildhacker found out how to bypass this. See the steps below if you want to hide your last name from your Facebook profile, and believe me it's quite simple.

7. Select Manual proxy configuration and enter the proxy you noted in step(4) in HTTP Proxy field and 8080 in Port. Also mark "Use this proxy server for all protocols". Type the same IP address in the "No Proxy" box and press ok.

8. Now login to your Facebook account, go to account settings and change the language to Bahasa Indonesia. Now try to remove your last name and see the magic. Facebook allows you to save your name without the last name.

    • Are you using Firefox? And have you followed everything in the video?

      Because I have tried it again just to see if it still works, and it does.

  3. Hey Hemant, ;)
    thanks yaar
    I changed my name and all my friends are surprised and asking me how I changed it …
    THANKS AGAIN!!

  4. What about the proxy settings in Firefox? Do they need to be changed back to what they were after the job is finished?

  5. Hi Hemant,

    Is this still working as of today? I am trying it. The save button is not lighted up when I want to save my name without the last name. Please advise. Thank you.

    • Yes. It is working as of now. Just tested it a few minutes ago. Make sure you perform all the steps correctly.

  6. phew! took alot of patience for doing this thing. The speed was too damn slow after changing the proxy but finally job done. Thanx :)

  7. Do i need to use the first proxy on the list? Also, there are no fast ones, is it alright to use one with medium/slow speed and connection time? will the level of anonymity change anything? Because I tried using other settings but it gets slow and the button to confirm the change wont “”light up””

    • A proxy with good speed is recommended. If you follow all the steps correctly, the Confirm button will light up for sure.
