How to See Your Facebook Email Address

Did you forget the email address that you used to create your Facebook account?

If you did, you won’t be able to sign in to Facebook unless you’ve linked your phone number with it.

If you’ve linked your phone number with Facebook, you can use it to sign in to your account.

However, if you didn’t link your phone number, you have no other choice but to use your email instead.

If you’ve forgotten it, there are a few ways that you can use to find it.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to see your Facebook email address, how to find out what email you used for Facebook on your phone, and more.

How to see your Facebook email address

To see your Facebook email address, you can either navigate to your contact information (if you’re logged in to Facebook) or view your saved passwords in your phone’s settings.

Alternatively, if you’re not logged in to Facebook, you can use your phone number to log in to your account if you’ve linked it in the past.

If you’re already logged into Facebook, you can see your email by navigating to your contact information via your settings.

The email address that you’ve used to create your Facebook account will be displayed in the contact information setting.

If you’re not logged in to Facebook and you forgot your email address, you can log in with your phone number instead.

However, if you didn’t link your phone number, the only option that you’re left with is to view your saved passwords in your phone’s settings.

For iOS devices, you can view your saved passwords by going to your phone’s settings and tapping on “Passwords”.

For Android devices, you can view your saved passwords by going to your phone’s settings > Google > Manage your Google Account > Security > Password manager.

Below is a 3-step guide on how you can find your Facebook password if you’re already logged in.
