Enable Facebook Security Feature – Get Notified by Email or SMS if a Diferent Computer Logs Into Your Account October 1, 2010

Posted by Randy Tyler in General.

To enable this Facebook Security feature:
  • go to the Account Settings page
  • click on the link next to "Account Security" at the bottom of the page. 
  • If you select the option to receive notifications for logins from new devices, when you log in, you'll be asked to name and save the various devices you use to access Facebook. 
  • whenever someone logs in to your account from a device not on this list, Facebook will ask the person to name the device.
  • Facebook will send you an immediate email notification – and if you want, a text message – so that you're always up to speed on how your account is being accessed. 
  • This notification will provide steps on how to reset your password and remove the device, so you can quickly secure your account if it's being accessed from a device you don't recognize.
