How To: Hide Last Name on Facebook [2014 Working Trick]

I recently posted how to hide last name on Facebook and have single name to show on profile. The trick was patched soon by Facebook. Now, you can again have single name and  hide last name on Facebook profile. Let me teach you the how to do them. If you have already learnt about the old trick, then, you may need to do an additional step to hide your last name. Indonesians are officially allowed to have single name on Facebook as most of the people on Indonesia have only one name. They seem to have last name. May be, the reason should be like that and that’s why Facebook allows to have them only the single name.

If you are from other country, you may not be able to hide your last name but it is now possible by VPN (Virtual Private Network) services. Before you step into the procedure, always remember that Facebook’s name change policy is somewhat strict as compared to other social networking sites. Make sure that you have more chances to change your name. Remember that you are performing this trick unofficially and Facebook can harm or change your name at anytime without any notification.

Also, remember that this trick doesn’t really ‘hides’ your last name. This tutorial will teach you how to have only the first name on Facebook. You don’t really provide your last name to ‘hide’.

Adverse effect of this trick:

When you have a single name on Facebook using this trick, you will face some problems while using Facebook applications or while signing up on third party websites using Facebook. Suppose, the site you are signing up requires both first name and last name, then Facebook will provide the same first name as your last name. For example, if you have succeeded in having a “Michael” as your Facebook name, then while signing up such websites, you may get “Michael Michael” as your name on that website. This might look weird.


To perform this trick, may need to access proxy websites. You can also use VPN software to the trick but I will teach you with VPN sites.

Let me dive into the steps.

Step #1: Log in to your Facebook account and reach Account Settings.

Step #2: Change the Language to Bahasa Indonesia.

Step #3: Now, you need to show Facebook that you are from Indonesia so that Facebook will believe as though you are an Indonesian. this will allow you to have single name on Facebook. To do this, land on the following link:

Copy the Proxy address and Port. Mostly, depend on recent proxies which has high speed and lifetime. Some of the proxy may not work but most proxies will work.

Step #4: Now, press Winkey + R to open Run window. Type inetcpl.cpl and hit Enter.

Step #5: In the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings dialog box, click on Connections tab. Click on the LAN settings button.

Step #6: Check or tick the Use Proxy Server for your LAN option. Paste the  Proxy address and Port which you got from the above link (Step #3).

Hide last name on Facebook

Note that you don’t refer to the proxy address in the above screenshot. Always depend on a fresh and new (Step #3).

Step #7: Click on the OK button. Now, try to change your name on your Facebook account as you do normally. Leave the Last Name empty. Enter your password and save settings.

Hide Last Name on Facebook Single Name

 And, voila, Facebook has accepted your name change now.

After changing your name, please see that you revert the settings that you have made. That is, remove the proxy from LAN settings and change your Facebook language.

      Did you change the language to Basha indonesia? Try them. Also, all proxies doesn’t work. you have to try the top 10 recent proxies. 4 out of 10 might work.

    • Arjun

      Jason, No worries. Again follow the Step #4 and Step #5. You can see the same dialog box like the above one. Just uncheck the option, Use Proxy Server for your LAN. Your internet connection will behave normal.

      March 31, 2013 at 9:17 am #

      You internet speed is slow now or from the beginning when you bought the connection? If it is slow since few days, then it is the impact of recent attack which has made the internet to slow down.

      You can have accent characters in your name. Facebook will accept it. Your name Jason can be written as Jásõñ. Facebook will accept this and not other stylish fonts.

      Did you try changing the language? Because, earlier the earlier trick which we posted didn’t say about changing the language but it worked for few days. Later, Facebook patched the trick. But now, the same trick is working now just by changing the language and proxy.

      You change proxy settings in Mac too.

      • Open up Firefox.
      • Choose Preferences from Firefox’s drop down list.
      • Choose Advanced and then select Network tab.
      • Hit the Settings button.
      • Select the Manual Proxy Configuration.
      • Enter the HTTP Proxy and Port got from the URL (proxynova)

      As you are changing proxy, I don’t guess you can do that in a mobile phone. But still, try some apps on your smartphones that lets you to change proxy. After changing the proxy and language, it should work in mobile too.

      Hey Kristine, We can show up an ID card to Facebook and we can request for name change but you can’t have a single name during that request. It is mandatory to provide both First Name and Last Name.

    every time i set windows up with the proxy, facebook won’t load? all other webpages will load, but it’s like facebook is blocking me out. as soon as i turn off the proxy it lets me back in. i’ve used over 50 proxies from many different sites. how do i work around this? i live in australia. thanks.

    • Arjun
      August 9, 2013 at 11:49 pm #

      Facebook loads dull when you use proxies. To avoid such situations, land on Account Settings page with your default proxy and then try out Indonesian Proxy to change your name. After changing your name, you may revert back your proxy settings.

    this doesnt wrok. i tried about 15 servers from that list, and i see the “please fill in the surname” without fail. the ip changes, as indicates, and it still doesn’t work. i’ll try on windows next time.

    • Arjun
      September 5, 2013 at 8:16 pm #

      Did you change the language to Bahasa Indonesia? Change to it and try those proxy servers, it works.

      A Tip: Before changing the proxy address and post, land on your Account Settings page. Then change your proxy address and post. Finally, your name.

      • tenko
        September 19, 2013 at 3:00 am #

        hey hey!
        yes, of course i changed the language :) to indonesian,, yup…
        dont tell me it works when it doesnt, i tried ~15 times exactly according to your instruction on a mac and it didnt work, i suspected it had something to do with the fact i was trying to do it on a mac, and i was right – i just did it with no trouble at all on my windows laptop.
        so fyi, it works only on windows. not really surprising though.
        i’ve a mac retina with mountain lion and i use chrome on it, and my pc is a win 7 run sony vaio.
        cheers and thanks!

        • Arjun
          September 24, 2013 at 6:59 am #

          Sure, I have not tested on mac though but will confirm it by testing it on a mac. If it doesn’t work, will give you a new method that works on mac.

      No. Single letter in last name field is not allowed but I haven’t tested with the proxy. Just give them a try.

      Hi Prateek,

      Indonesian proxies would be slow when you try to access them from your location. Just try more Indonesian proxies.

      Tip: Change your language without proxy. Stay on your Account Settings page and then change the proxy so that after changing the proxy you may just need to change your name. When everything is successful, you can switch back to previous proxy or remove the proxy. Then finally, you can change the page.

    Worked on a mac.
    Did it as suggested above… But instead of changing the HTTP Proxy Configuration, I changed the SSL proxy configuration. So, in recap:
    Open up Firefox.
    Choose Preferences from Firefox’s drop down list.
    Choose Advanced and then select Network tab.
    Hit the Settings button.
    Select the Manual Proxy Configuration.
    Enter the SSL Proxy and Port got from the URL (proxynova)
    Click OK and you’re done!

    Thank you!

      Hey, thanks so much for this! The detail in your post helped me finally get this working. I’m not sure exactly what was going wrong before (also on a Mac), but it might have just been that using Firefox fixed it. Thanks!

    thank you arjun. still works as of 10th of February 2014.

    Facebook’s policy is cockdirt. They never put a public number on how many names changes you could have. Last time I checked, about 3 month’s ago – Facebook said I had one more name change so really think on it. Now they say I have none without me changing anything.

  74. kumi
    March 3, 2014 at 12:10 pm #

    Why does it not work for me… I’ve followed all the steps but fb says I still can’t change my name.

  75. mehrab mahmud
    March 21, 2014 at 2:34 pm #

    its not working.. ma both name is showing in facebook. but i want only single name

    • Arjun
      March 31, 2014 at 6:40 pm #

      Let me know at which part you are going wrong. If it is the proxy which is troubling you, please try out different proxies.

    Hey I tried but.. the name is comin ‘Rahat Rahat’ on fb chat list huh why so …???

    • Arjun
      March 28, 2014 at 2:15 am #

      That’s the disadvantage of this trick. It appears “Rahat Rahat” on Mobile site and Facebook apps but looks “Rahat” on desktop site.

    Why this proxy not working

  79. Kẏra
    April 25, 2014 at 1:34 am #

    I think facebook has blocked the proxy because when I turn it on and go back to facebook, it says access denied

    the problem is when paste the proxy and port, facebook is not accesible anymore so cant change the name.

    • Arjun
      June 7, 2014 at 12:55 pm #

      Go to Account Settings, change the language without any proxy. Then, change your proxy to Indonesia and have single name. It works. :)

    Hello, this trick works and I could remove the last name yesterday but today when I logged in to shitbook it forced me to update my name, so I had to write a last name too, but I did not write my real last name I wrote a fake name which got accepted but maybe they will ask me to change again in the future.

    I hate facebook and didn’t want this shit but I have to chat with some girl that only has facebook so my only option was to create a facebook account. They can go to hell with their trying to force people to use their real identity. This is internet, everybody has the right to be anonymous, but facebook is trying to prevent that.
