  • If the above mentioned proxies do not work for you go to and select any proxy and port number.These proxies might be slow but you need them only to make changes to your profile.
  • Once your profile has been saved successfully, change the language back to English and remove the proxy from the browser.
How It Works
Facebook do not allow you to save your profile without your surname.But many Indonesian people do not have their surname ,that is,they only have first name as their full name.So you select the Indonesian language and use an Indonesian proxy to make an impression that this Facebook account is from Indonesia and Facebook allow you to save your profile without your last name.
