Is Facebook Login Alerts Messenger a Scam and Fake?

I received an odd Facebook login alert on messenger regarding unrecognized devices, not sure what to make of it. Here is the message: "Messenger alerts about unrecognized logins into your Facebook account are disabled. You will continue receiving login warnings via system notifications like this one."

Is Facebook Login Alerts Messenger a Scam and Fake?

Things to note:

  • My Facebook account is currently deactivated.
  • I still use messenger.
  • This setting, cited above, was previously on.

I logged in, looked at my active sessions/devices/logins and logouts and everything looks good. The setting to receive alerts about unrecognized devices was also ON and not disabled as the alert says. I changed my password just to make myself feel better.

My only ideas are that it was a mistake or maybe they’re phasing our “unrecognized device” login alerts and they’re just doing “login warnings.” Or maybe they’re saying that I will no longer be alerted to logins for actual Facebook vs. messenger, which I actually use.

Oddly though, no one else I know with a fb has received this message.

Has anyone here received it?

    I discovered my internet account shows a different IPv6 address to facebook each day. This makes Facebook's login alert feature useless. Answering "This was me" to each alert only increased the size of the previous logins list. Today I chose to disable the alert notices. I hope it doesn't re-enable itself.
