Is there a safe way for developers to create 'fake' Facebook accounts?

With the recent changes pushing for Facebook accounts to be linked to Oculus accounts, and the social features like leaderboards now requiring the accounts to be linked, testing these features in our game now requires me to make multiple Facebook accounts.

Given that for the last few years Facebook has been quite aggressive in chasing down 'fake' accounts, and especially the recent issues with people linking accounts getting their accounts banned and their Quests blocked, is there some 'safe' or approved way to go about this?

Thanks!
Darren

    Also wanted to know a safe route for such scenarios
    I'm essentially holding back any Quest 2 purchase/further Oculus development until all those uncertainties and issues which are a fallout of the undesirable account linking are ironed out. Together with all the Quest 2 purchaser stories about account suspending, no  Go-App running capability etc... my Oculus enthusiasm is seriously damaged...

    Also interested if there's a way around the Facebook account requirement.
    Technically I never understood why you needed to link your phone to the GO / Quest to activate it but this new requirement is really undesirable and definitely holding me back upgrading from Q1 to Q2 as well and probably will be the reason most of my clients won't buy a headset like several did the past years (to view my design of their new house whenever they want).

    The Quest 2 and Facebook account requirement to me feels like one step forward, two steps back. Too bad.

    If they don't change this then we clearly need anti-trust, anti-monopoly, consumer protection and anti-discrimination laws to start applying to Facebook.
