Open Full Facebook Desktop Version Site On Mobile[2022 Update]

I do not see a clear idea behind trying to use the Facebook desktop site on a mobile phone, but different ways to open a Facebook full site have been mentioned below. Please try all of it until you find the method that works on your phone/ tablet.

After trying different browsers and tricks mentioned on forums and blogs (that were outdated and not working), I have finally found a way to use facebook’s desktop version on iPhone and Android phones.

1. Open Full Facebook Site With URL

There are two ways you can load a desktop version on your mobile phone.

The easiest way to do so is by directly entering the full facebook URL into your phone browser. This process applies to andriod or iPhones.

URL : http://www.facebook.com/home.php
  • Step 1: Open Safari browser and go to Facebook.com
  • Step 2: Log in to your facebook account
  • Step 3: Tap on the AA on the bottom left corner of the screen and tap “Request Desktop Website” and give it some time
  • Step 4: This will load the desktop version that is mobile optimized
  • Ste 5: Tap on the URL section and enter the URL “http://www.facebook.com/home.php”
    It’s “http” not “https”. I know that is the old standard but this URL takes you to the full facebook desktop version site.

If you are looking for a full desktop-class browsing experience, please follow the below instructions to do so using Opera mini browser.

Did it work? Were you able to open the Facebook desktop version site, please let me know in the comments below?

If you are trying to use a third-party application to access the Facebook pc version on your phone or tablet, the chances of your account getting hacked are very high.

That’s the main reason I don’t recommend any kinds of these third-party applications in this tutorial. Also even though the application might be genuine, facebook can lock your account for misuse or grant access to these third-party applications that look suspicious.
