facebookFacebook has recently introduced a new security option called Login Approval. Such option is available for all Facebook users and lets you know who tried to login to your account without your consent. It is sufficient to try to login to a Facebook account from an unauthorized computer to trigger the warning message. Reading from Facebook: “Login Approval is a security feature that requires you to enter a code that we text to your phone when you login from an unrecognized computer.” What follows is the easy step-by-step procedure to turn on and activate such feature.

  1. Login to your Facebook account.
  2. Go to your Account Settings.
  3. Scroll down and expand the Account Security settings section.
  4. Tick the  Login Approvals checkbox: “Require me to enter a security code sent to my phone”.
  5. After that, a pop-up window will appear on your screen. It will explain you what the Login Approval feature is. Read it and click the Next button.
  6. Type in your phone number in the blank field and click Next.
  7. Type the code you got on your phone and click Next.
  8. Depending on your configuration, Facebook will ask you for other data such as your computer name etc.
  9. At the end you will get a “Congratulation” message confirming that you set the whole thing correctly.
  10. Click the Save button and you are done!

    I think I might have done it. The problem is that i tried accessing the facebook website from my Blackberry Bold 9700 and it just wouldnt let me get in despite putting in my password – it just kept asking for it. Eventually I tried accessing using the simple facebook webpage and it let me in but with repeated refreshes of the page. When I did manage to get to my profile I could hardly do anything – I couldnt browse friends, see photos, send messages until I refreshed the page 5 or 6 times. I just got a white screen. It’s like its trying to load but can’t. All other websites work perfectly except FB. Could the login approval have done this to me? Is there any way I can reverse it? Pls could you advise?
