Can I View the Facebook Marketplace Without an Account?

Do you want to look through the Facebook Marketplace but don’t have a Facebook account?

You can’t use the Marketplace without a Facebook account. The Marketplace is a service offered by Facebook for Facebook users only.

Without an account, no one can access it. Fortunately, creating a Facebook account is easy and only takes a couple of minutes.

If you don’t know how to create a Facebook account or access the Marketplace, keep reading! That’s what I’m here to help you with.

How to Create a Facebook Account?

You’ll need a Facebook account to access the Marketplace. Follow the steps below to create an account on the platform:

1. Open Play Store

The first step in creating a Facebook account is entering your name. Use your real name because Facebook may delete your account if you use a fake name.

Their algorithm doesn’t work all the time, though, so you may get away with a fake name. Once you enter the name, click on “Next

7. Enter your birthday

Next, you must enter your birthdate. If you don’t want to enter your real birthdate, enter a random one but make sure you’re above 18 years old.

Facebook doesn’t allow people under 18 to have accounts, so you may want to keep that in mind. Once you select a birthdate, click “Next“.

8. Select your gender
