The solution to the Facebook confirmation code not working or sending
Many users who experienced this problem tried to verify their account with their smartphone through the Facebook application.
A functional solution so that the Facebook confirmation code does not work is NOT to use your mobile phone to verify your account. Instead, log in to your Facebook using a laptop or desktop computer to enter your confirmation code and successfully verify your account.
Alternatively, you can try confirming your Facebook using your cell phone browser at https://touch.facebook.com/ and then setting up your account at touch.facebook.com/settings/account/ to follow the explanatory instructions confirming your account on the mobile.
In case you're wondering what is touch.facebook.com? - It is a more sophisticated product and has more features. It is a thin version of facebook.com made primarily for smartphones and touch devices without an application for the specific mobile operating system. It allows you to view your feed, profiles of friends, photos, comment and manage your account as you would on the Facebook desktop.
