Facebook 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.
- Login to your Facebook account.
- Go to your Account Settings.
- Scroll down and expand the Account Security settings section.
- Tick the Login Approvals checkbox: “Require me to enter a security code sent to my phone”.
- 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.
- Type in your phone number in the blank field and click Next.
- Type the code you got on your phone and click Next.
- Depending on your configuration, Facebook will ask you for other data such as your computer name etc.
- At the end you will get a “Congratulation” message confirming that you set the whole thing correctly.
- Click the Save button and you are done!
