How to Find the Email You Used for Facebook on Mobile

Unveiling the Mystery: Locating Your Facebook Email on Mobile

Ever signed up for Facebook years ago and forgotten the email address you used? Don’t fret! This guide will equip you with methods to find the email address associated with your Facebook account on your Android or iPhone device.

Understanding Facebook Email:

  • Evolution of Email Use: In the past, Facebook offered its own email service. However, this service was discontinued in 2014.
  • Primary Email: Today, Facebook uses the primary email address associated with your account for login purposes and communication.

Locating Your Facebook Email on Mobile:

Method 1: Using Facebook App Settings

  1. Open the Facebook app on your Android or iPhone device.
  2. Tap on the three horizontal lines (or hamburger menu) located on the bottom right corner (Android) or top right corner (iPhone) of your screen.
  3. Scroll down and tap on “Settings & Privacy”.
  4. Select “Settings”. This might be listed under “Account Settings” on some devices.
  5. Under “Personal Information” section, look for “Contact Info”.
  • Primary Email: If you see an email address listed under “Email Address,” that’s the primary email address associated with your Facebook account.

Method 2: Checking Your Login Emails

If you can’t find an email address within the Facebook app, you can try searching your inbox for the original Facebook signup email. Here’s a general approach:

  1. Open your email app on your mobile device.
  2. Search your inbox using keywords like “Facebook,” “Welcome,” or “Verification” (depending on your email provider’s search filters).
  3. Look for emails from Facebook sent around the time you likely created your account. The email might contain your signup email address in the body of the message or subject line.

Additional Tips:

  • Check Multiple Email Addresses: If you used a different email address in the past, try searching through all the email accounts you might have had access to around the time you created your Facebook account.
  • Facebook Account Creation Date: Vaguely recalling the year you might have created your Facebook account can help narrow down your email search within your inbox.

What If You Still Can’t Find It?

If both methods fail to reveal your Facebook email, here are some alternative approaches:

  • Contact Facebook Support: As a last resort, you can try contacting Facebook support and explain your situation. They might be able to assist you in recovering your email address based on other account information.

  • Security Questions: If you remember the security questions set up during Facebook account creation, you might be able to reset your password using those questions. Once you reset your password, you can choose a new email address during the process.

Remember: Since Facebook no longer offers its own email service, the email address associated with your account is the primary email you used during signup. By following these methods and considering alternative approaches, you should be able to locate the email address you used for Facebook on your mobile device.
