Why and when we send email confirmations
We send email confirmations when you:
  • Create a new Facebook account
  • Add a new email to an existing account
  • To confirm that you own this email, click on the link in the confirmation email.
    If you haven't created a new account
    Note: If someone else used your email when they created their facebook account, it won't be added to their account if it isn't confirmed.
    If you received a confirmation request for an account you didn't create, then you can:
    • File a report
    • Click the link at the bottom of the email to let us know this wasn't you
