After clicking on Register Now button, if you facebook account isn't verified, you must do it. WIthout account verification you cant create own facebook developer account. Facebook has several features in place to limit the potential for spam and abuse on the site. Verifying your personal Facebook account helps you retain control of your account and apps on Facebook. There are two ways to verify your account. First, you can verify your cell phone, which allows us to verify that a real person is in control of the account. Learn about this process. The second way to verify your account is to add a credit card to your account. Unfortunately, if you cannot verify with a cell phone or add a credit card, you may be unable to verify your account. All developers must be verified before they can create a new app. Before you can continue, please verify your account in this case - by providng phone number:


Mobile phone verification:
