How to Change Your Name On Facebook to a Single Name

If you have been seeing your Facebook friends’ accounts having one name and wish to do the same with your Facebook Personal account. This post will serve you well.

It’s really simple to change your multiple Facebook names into a single name.

However, there’s no other way to change your name on Facebook to a single name unless you’re connecting through an Indonesian IP address. This is because most Indonesians don’t have family names.

So if you live in any other country, other than Indonesia, you will need to make a few adjustments to your Facebook account and also download a specific VPN called Indonesia VPN to access the feature.

VPN refers to Virtual Private Network; it hides your online activity.

Steps to follow:

1. Install and Connect Indonesia VPN

If you don’t already have the Indonesia VPN, you will need to install it on your device. Alternatively, you can connect to a VPN with an Indonesia server option.

  • Enter Jakarta, Indonesia, and click Save

3. Changing Your Name on Facebook
