Safety and security are very important when you use the web. Security tools will help make communities stronger. Facebook provides several ways to help you protect yourself and your account.
Some time ago, Facebook introduce advanced security features to help prevent unauthorized access to your account called Facebook Login Notifications. Login Notifications are an optional security feature where alerts are sent to you each time your account is gained access from a new device.
If you activate this feature:
- Facebook will ask you to name your computer or mobile phone each time you try to log into Facebook. You can also save your device to your list of Recognized Devices. This way, you will not have to keep naming the computer or mobile phone you usually use to log in to Facebook.
- When you name a device, Facebook will send a notification to the email address associated with your account and your mobile phone. Note: Do not select the option to save your device if you are using a public computer.
- If you ever receive a Login Notification from an unfamiliar device or location, follow the instructions in the notification to reset your password and secure your account. This additional security will help make sure it's really you who tried to login.
In the Security Settings page, you will be able to see all your current session, along with information about each session. You can also disable unauthorized logins to secure your account and your computer.
To turn on Login Notifications, just go to your Security Settings page and update your security settings.
