Turn image verification (captcha) OFF on facebook!

Facebook LogoIf you are new on facebook and having problem with its security captcha i.e. image verification!

In simple words if you noticed words in the box as images while poking, messaging, or sending friend requests this is time to get rid off all this permanently as facebook now supports international phone numbers for verification.

You can verify your account by confirming your mobile phone number!

Just follow the above link and all you will need to do is selecting your country from drop-down menu and typing your mobile number! Just note don’t add country code or any of the special character like ‘-‘ (hypen) to your number.

After this press confirm and you will be redirected to next page as well you will get a SMS on your mobile! In my case SMS took around 1 minute after clicking confirm so just wait for few minutes before pressing back button of your browser.

Once you get SMS put it on the screen waiting for you and you will be done!

Thats so simple!!! So don’t go away from facebook for its annoying image verification on each move! πŸ˜‰

Altair December 16, 2010

I’m facing a seriously annoying problem like this on facebook, the thing is I use facebook to play games like mafia wars, dragon age and i happen to have a lot of people on my friend list from around the world(for the sake of the games of course).
Now when i try to login to fb from home or any other place it says that i’m from an unfamiliar location and i have to verify my account by identifying my friends from their photo albums.
Now i can’t possibly know who’s who from my 500+ friends!…
sure its for security purposes but for me who uses fb mainly for these games its a real annoyance…
is there any way to turn it off?…

Angie July 21, 2012

I’m in Australia. My phone number is verified. I read above that someone said that FB has increased their security and there is no way around it. I run 80% of my business via FB but if I am getting 3 or 4 errored captchas PER photo that I upload, theres one less page for them! Has anybody found any solutions?
