Facebook Security Tip: Check to See Who Is Using Your Facebook Account
February 1, 2011 By Harrison Painter
While it is my belief that there is no true privacy when using facebook, security is a much different issue that users need to be aware of. If you have ever been a target of suspicious behavior, and believe someone might have been using your account without your knowledge, please know that there is an “Account Security” area built into Facebook. Here you can check what devices have logged into your account by date, approximate location based on IP address, and device used.
To access these settings, log into Facebook –> Account –> Account Settings –> Account Security.
As you can see in the image below, you can check the box to have an email sent to you anytime a new computer or mobile device logs into your account. I highly recommend you check this box and click save.
You will also see your most recent activity as I described above. If you notice any odd locations or devices that might have had access, you can click the words “end activity” on the right hand side and stop the use.
