You have organized a hilarious joke to play on your friend and, to make everything go as “script”, you need to send him anonymous messages using Messenger, Facebook’s messaging platform. But since you are much more familiar with organizing jokes than with technology, you wouldn’t mind getting some clarification on what to do.

Well, I can explain if you want how to send anonymous messages on Messenger. I want to tell you right away that, for obvious reasons, the famous messaging platform does not offer an ad hoc function that actually allows you to “obscure” your identity and send anonymous messages to other people, but in any case I will reveal a “trick” that will allow you to do it without problems: soon you will understand better what it is.

So, what are you doing still standing there? Come on: make yourself comfortable, concentrate on reading this article and, above all, scrupulously follow the instructions I am about to give you. You will see that, following my “tips”, the joke you plan to do to your friend will succeed perfectly. I wish you good reading and, above all, have fun!

Preliminary information

Before we delve into the heart of this guide and see how to send anonymous messages on Messenger, it is my duty to provide you with some preliminary information that you must necessarily understand before consulting the next chapters. First of all, I want to reiterate that it is impossible to send completely anonymous messages on Messenger, as the messaging service integrated into Facebook does not contemplate this possibility.

The only thing you can do is create a fake Facebook profile and then use the latter to send anonymous messages to other users. Be careful, however, because creating a fake profile on the famous social network constitutes a clear violation of the conditions of use of the service, which could therefore lead to the closure of the fake profile by the social network.

If, despite this, you still want to create a fake Facebook account, please, use it only for legitimate and joking purposes. Do not use it to harass and / or threaten other users, as doing so would constitute a criminal offense (and the authorities would still trace your true identity).

In this regard, the information presented in this article has been written for illustrative purposes only and I do not take any responsibility for the use you will make of it. Understood? Well, at this point we can proceed.

Create a fake Facebook profile

If you have decided to create a fake Facebook profile, perhaps because you want to send anonymous messages for “innocent” purposes, such as pranks to play on some friends and relatives, read on: below you will find explained how to do it both from mobile and from computer.

If you want to proceed from smartphone or tablet, know that you can create a fake profile by acting directly from the official Facebook app for Android And iOS. Then start the latter and, if necessary, log out of your real account by tapping the button (≡) and then selecting the wording Go out present in the screen that opens.

Once you have logged out of your real Facebook account, you can proceed to create the fake one. To do this, tap on the item Join Facebook located at the bottom, press the button Continue / Begin, provide first name And surname fictitious in the appropriate text fields and then press the button Keep it going.

Then specify the date of birth you want to use, press again on Keep it going, indicate your gender, specifying if you are a man or one woman, tap the button Use your e-mail address and provide the email with which to register, perhaps a temporary email address.

Speaking of temporary email address, know that there are various services that can come in handy in this regard, such as 10 Minute Mail: from the tests I conducted it seems to work perfectly also with Facebook, so I recommend you use it. To use it, all you have to do is go upstairs This Page.

Once you have the temporary mailing address, provide the password with which you want to protect the fake Facebook account, press the buttons Keep it going And subscribe and then remember to confirm the e-mail address you indicated during registration, specifying the code you received on the latter.

If you want to create a fake Facebook profile by acting as computer, linked to the main page of the social network and, if necessary, log out of your real account by clicking on the symbol (▾) located at the top right (in the blue bar) and selecting the item Go out from the menu that opens.

After logging out, you should find yourself in front of the registration form of the social network: therefore, provide, in the appropriate text fields, first name And surname dummy that you intend to use for your new profile, indicate in the text field Mobile number or e-mail address an e-mail address with which to make the new subscription to Facebook (perhaps use a temporary email) and also specify the password with which to protect the account.

If you do not know which service to use to create the temporary email to subscribe to the social network in “anonymous” form, I suggest you try 10 Minute Mail, as, from the tests I have done, it seems to work quite well. To get a temporary mailing address, you simply need to go to This Page.

After specifying the email address with which to subscribe to Facebook, use the drop-down menus and boxes relating to the date of birth and the kind of membership you intend to provide (man And woman) and click on the button Create account, to complete the operation.

Remember, then, to confirm the e-mail address you indicated during registration, by providing the code that was sent to you by the Facebook team. Understood?
