How do I report a fake Facebook profile?

A fake profile is a profile where someone is pretending to be something or someone that doesn't exist. Fake profiles can include profiles for fake or made up people, pets, celebrities or organizations. To report a fake profile:
  1. Go to the fake profile.
    • If you can't find it, try searching for the name used on the profile or asking your friends if they can send you a link to it.
  2. Click under the cover photo and select Find Support or Report Profile.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions for fake profiles to file a report.
If a profile is pretending to be you or someone you know, you can learn how to report it for impersonation.
