Need to log into your Facebook business page from home, work, or another country? Another device? We’ve got you covered. Here are a list of devices we’re going to cover in this article:

  • Desktop - Mac 
  • Desktop - Windows
  • Mobile - iPhone
  • Mobile - Android
     

We’ll also cover how to access your Facebook business page in different regions from desktop or mobile. Instructions differ depending on your situation, but some things remain constant. For example, regardless of which device you’re on or where you are, to access your Facebook page you have to:

  1. Be logged in to your personal Facebook account
  2. Have permission to access the Business Page either as the Page’s Administrator or by the Administrator 
     

If you don’t have a Facebook account you won’t be able to create a Facebook Business Page or access anyone else’s. Let’s start there.


Must-Have: How to Create a Facebook Page

If you do not already have a personal Facebook profile, you can create one for free by following these easy steps:

  1. Go to Facebook.com
  2. Complete the following information and then click the green Sign Up button:  

First name
Last name
Email or mobile number 
New password
Birthday (Month, Day, Year)
Gender

Facebook sign up page

Once you have a Facebook page, you can work on getting access to an existing Facebook Business Page for you or your employer. For example, you may have hired someone like Web.com to create your Facebook Business Page for you and you may be trying to get access to it. Similarly, you may work for someone who wants you to manage their Facebook business page, in which case you need to get access to it. Here’s how!


How to Access Your Facebook Page on Desktop - Mac or PC (Chrome Browser)

There are four ways to access your Facebook business pages once you log into your account on the Facebook website.

1. If you are already logged into Facebook, go to your Home tab and click the arrow on the top right corner. When the dropdown menu expands, you’ll see the pages which you have admin access to.

2. Another way to access your pages is on the left-hand column of your Facebook interface under the “Explore” section. Click on Pages, with the little flag icon, and it will list all all of them for you:

You will see the page shown below. Click on whichever Facebook business page you want to access.

How to Access Your Facebook Business Page on a Mobile Device (iPhone Instructions)

If you are already in Facebook, click on the three black lines (also called the “hamburger menu”) in the lower right-hand corner of your cell phone’s screen. Then click the first option on the next screen that says My Pages. On the third screen, pick the Facebook business page you want to look at from the list.

Sometimes, if you didn’t create the page you’re trying to access, Facebook’s interface won’t show the page. This short video has a workaround if that’s happening.


How To Access a Facebook Business Page for a Different Region (Desktop Instructions)

Global brands sometimes have different versions of the same page for different geographic regions. So the Facebook page you see in one country will be different from the Facebook page you see in another country – even for the same company.

The version of the Facebook business page you select on the desktop will be the version you see in your Facebook mobile app. You’ll be able to see it in your News Feed and when you visit the business page itself.

To switch the region of a page on a desktop computer:

  1. Click ••• (the three dots) below the page's cover photo
  2. Select “Switch Region”

3. Select the country you want as your default for the Page

4. Click Save Preference

Please note that if you like a page while you are abroad, you may still receive updates for the country you visited after you return home. To stop those messages just follow the instructions above again, switching the page back to your home country.


How to Access a Facebook Business Page for a Different Region (Mobile Instructions)

You will not be able to switch regions in a Facebook Business Page on the Facebook Mobile app. 

In the Facebook mobile app, when you visit the Facebook Business Page, the drop-down menu does not include the “switch region” function. So, use your desktop computer if you want to change the region settings for a page.
