How to Send a Facebook Confirmation Code to Google Voice

by Avery Martin

Verifying your Facebook account with Google Voice requires you to properly configure your Google Voice account settings. By setting up Google Voice to redirect your phone calls to your cell phone or home phone, you can receive a text or voice message to confirm your account. Facebook often requires you to confirm new accounts when your account shows unusual activity or you want to add additional features such as the ability to use a custom Facebook URL. Once you confirm your account, you can continue using Facebook as normal.

Access the Google Voice website (link in Resources).

Click on your Google Voice number listed in the sidebar.

Click the "Phone" tab and check the option to forward your calls to Google Chat or your mobile phone. Your changes save automatically.

4

Click the "Voicemail & Text" tab and check the "Transcribe Voice Mail" option if you want to receive a voice confirmation from Facebook. Check the "Forward Text Messages to My Email" option to receive a text message. Select "Save Changes."
