somebody accessed my facebookIf you are concerned about your Facebook Privacy and Security, you have to know that the Facebook team has rolled out a lot of features. In fact, thanks to a little trick you will be able to know if somebody accessed and successfully logged to your Facebook account and personal page. This further security “countermeasure” has been embedded in your Facebook security settings in order to prevent hackers and other “malicious” users from stealing your identity, for example. The idea is not new as other Internet companies are using similar methods, such as Google Gmail for example which shows when the account was last accessed.  Other web companies instead have created Ad-Hoc web utilities that scan your Facebook account looking for security holes and privacy issues. Recently,  Facebook has also further increased its user accounts by using a secure login page (SSL). So let’s see how know if somebody accessed your Facebook page by keeping a close eye on your most recent Facebook activity!

  1. Login to your Facebook Account.
  2. Click the Account link located on the upper-right side of your Account.
  3. Click Account Settings.
  4. Click the Settings tab.
  5. Click Account Security.
  6. Right there you will be able to fin some very useful options and incredibly useful information about your account.
  7. First of all, I advice you to check the Send Me email checkbox. In this way you will know if somebody else (not you) logged in your account.
  8. Secondly, have a look under the Also Active Section. Right there you will be able to see when your Facebook page was last accessed as well as the location where somebody gain access to it.  You can even know what browser was used to get to your profile!

    It should be made clear to the reader that we’re not talking, here, about being able to see who has viewed your Facebook page, or when they did it. There’s a lot of confusion about that on the Internet. Lots of people want to be able to see who has viewed their Facebook page…

    …and there are a bunch of rip-off Facebook app and desktop software builders out there trying to sell hapless Facebook users tools which will help them do something which Facebook doesn’t allow, and so isn’t possible… at least not for very long before one’s Facebook account gets suspended for trying it.

    All this is about is being able to see who last logged-in to one’s Facebook account…

    …and by that I don’t mean merely looked at one’s Facebook page. I mean logged-in to one’s Facebook account, using one’s login and password.

    The reader should be crystal clear about that, just so no one’s inadvertently misled.
