If you’re one of my readers, you will notice that I have been posting articles about Facebook security. I have to make this tutorial for readers to become aware of the security features that Facebook provided to their users.
Most of the Facebook users use a simple password that can easily guess, sometimes they use their birthday, which also visible in their profile and the primary email which also available when you view their profile info.
Remember that identity theft is common nowadays, and most victim’s personal information found by the thieves in their social media accounts like Facebook.

I will add to the list of my Facebook tips this article entitled how to receive text message if anyone logs into your Facebook account from new device or browsers. It will notify you via text message to your registered mobile number every time your Facebook account logged into an unregistered device or browsers.

To enable this feature in your account, follow the instruction below.
Step 1. Login to your Facebook account and go to Settings > Mobile or use this direct link (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=mobile) to activate mobile messaging.

If you find it difficult to setup you can use my previous article “How to add security to Facebook account using Mobile” to guide you in adding your mobile number.
