Improve Facebook Security by Getting Unrecognized Login Alerts

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

You can improve the security of your Facebook account by getting an alert when someone tries logging in from a device or web browser we don't recognize. These alerts will tell you which device tried logging in and where it's located.

Please continue reading below.

How do I get alerts about unrecognized logins?

To get alerts about unrecognized logins:

  1. Go to your Security and Login Settings by clicking Facebook Menu Icon in the top-right corner of Facebook and clicking Settings.
  2. Click Security and Login on the left.
  3. Go to Get alerts about unrecognized logins and click Edit.
  4. Choose where you want to receive your alerts, such as from your email account or with a Facebook notification from a recognized device.
  5. Click Save Changes.

After you start getting alerts about unrecognized logins:

  • When you receive a login alert, you can tell us if you recognize the login activity by clicking or tapping This was me.
  • If you don't recognize the login activity, click or tap This wasn't me and we'll help you reset your password and secure your account.
  • You can save a device or browser to your list of trusted browsers or recognized devices. This way, you won't get alerts about the computer or mobile device you usually use to log into Facebook. Don't choose this option if you're using a public computer (such as one in a library or cafe).
  • A list of recent devices that have logged into your Facebook account can be found in your Security and Login Settings.
