Hide Last Name on Facebook

There are two methods that you can use to remove the last name from your Name on Facebook. The first is about using a Proxy and then the second one is without using any proxy. So, let’s see what are the steps.

1. Create a Single Name Facebook Account without Proxy

To use the first method, you will need to do some Web Browser level configurations. That is, you need to set and configure a custom Proxy settings on your Web browser. If you don’t want to set Proxy settings and go through all these geeky settings, then I will recommend you to go with the second method, where we will be using ready to go extensions. So, choose the one that you feel is simple for you.

  • First of all, go to your respective browser’s proxy settings and change the settings that of Indonesia
  1. If you are using Google Chrome then, Click on the Three Dots icon from the right top corner and click on settings.
  2. Now, scroll all the way down and click on the “Advanced Settings”
  3. Under the System tab, select “Open Proxy Settings”
  4. Click on LAN Settings
  5. Enable the option called Proxy server and enter the values appropriately.
  6. If you are using Mozilla Firefox, click Tools > Options
  7. Open advanced Settings and switch to Network tab
  8. Click on Settings and use Manual Proxy Configurations
  9. Enter the values and you are all good to go.

Now that you have changed the Proxy settings and everything is tuned. let’s open Facebook and start the work.

2. Hide Last Name on Facebook with Proxy

In the above method, we used proxy settings of Indonesia to tune into their location and change language to Bahasa Indonesia. After which, we hid the last name. Now, in this method, we will be using VPN Extensions/Plugins to change to Indonesia Proxy and change our account into a single name Facebook account.

For this method, you will first have to download a VPN Extension to your Browser. You can use any one of your choices. For this tutorial, I will be using DotVPN, which is free and available for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

To get Indonesia proxy for free, you can use Hola VPN.

Download for your browser using the link below.

   Hola for Chrome     Hola for Firefox

After you are done downloading the VPN, create an Account if it asks for it. And then change the server location to Indonesian Place. If you can’t find Indonesian server in the particular VPN that you are using then you can try some other alternatives as well. All we want is the Indonesian Server Proxy.

After that follow the same steps that as mentioned in the first method.

  • Go to Facebook and Login to your Account
  • Click on Settings and select the Language tab

access language settings

  • By default it may be English, now change it to  Bahasa Indonesia
