    I currently live in Germany, but I'll move to UK in two weeks.

    For a project of mine, I run three Facebook accounts on my home IP and now I'm afraid of losing them.
    Will I have to ID verify them when I login from England?

    I bought those accounts as PVA accounts, but I don't have access to the phone number (I don't even know if I can access the email account for these accounts)

    Will I get problems?

    i travel a lot and when you log in with the same computer its no problem ...... same mac address.
    if you try on a different device - on Facebook you have to identify some of your friends.

    so make a printout of them than you can pass this easy.

    A different IP will probably trigger some sort of verification. I would download all your friends pics or use something like Massplanner to grab them all. If you do log in here and get blocked as "a new location" then if you can get someone to log in at your old location in Germany then they will get a message saying " did you just log in somewhere else". If they say yes then you will be able to log in without a block in the UK.

    Thanks you too. Sounds like I won't encounter big problems then.
    I will copy a list of my friends to make sure :)

    Any free tool for that by the way? (I don't own massplanner)

    You can try linkgopher on the friends page and scroll to the bottom and grab all their profile links and save them That works quite well.

    Or I could just scroll down and simply download the html page, that would probably be the simpliest solution.
    I have a facedominator license which I can use to scrape all friend URLs.

    Yeah, I'll take my notebook with me.

    Stop spamming the forum.

    Sure bro....
    You really need not worry yourself on this at all.
    I personally use over 10 IPs (4 different countries) for my facebook account and so far no issues even when I change my PC.
    But as far as you are using same PC/Laptop (meaning same cookies) you do not have to be afraid of verification.

    Facebook will not have access to your Mac address. They will identify you via cookies / browser fingerprints / basic system info and to a lesser extent IP. They can glean most of your browser and some of your system info, but people throw Mac address around as a common identifier, which is not the case unless they have software installed on your device. So they may be able to extract the Mac address of your phone if you have a Facebook app installed on it, however, this isn't something I've personally looked into.

    So if you're moving country and using the same device, the only thing changing is IP and there shouldn't be any issues. Perhaps a light security barrier at most, doubtful they'll ask for ID or anything.

    When you login from new ip they obviously ask for verification.

    It's not obvious at all. IP / geolocation are only particularly relevant if you're signing in from a new device, if you've wiped clean all cookies / traceables and are using a different browser, or your fingerprint has changed significantly (in conjunction with clearing traceables). Sometimes you can get a security check signing into FB from different devices via the same IP, although highly unlikely if you're signing in via a residential IP with up to date browser versions and no suspicious browser / device setup.

    Think about it logically, people travel around all the time - connecting to cafe wifi / hotel wifi abroad. That may warrant a light security check in some cases, but there's nothing suspicious about connecting to accounts via different IPs, unless it's done extremely quickly / suspiciously.

    Why don't you test it for yourself. Connect to Facebook via your home wifi, then disconnect and sign in via 3/4g which will typically provide an IP geolocated many miles away from you. Tell me if your account gets any security blocks.

    To add, Facebook has no way of knowing the MAC address when accessing from a computer/laptop. It's not sent in the web request. To determine the device they use the useragent header string.
