So, in this article, we will show you how to find out if someone is accessing your account secretly without your authorization.
Let’s get started…
Facebook allows you to see a list of recent logins on your FB account. You can see the location, date, time, the name of the device and the IP address for each device.
How to see list of devices
Firstly, you have to login to your Facebook Account and click on the icon at the top right corner. Select Settings from the menu that appears.

Alternative Method / Security Approach
Enable Facebook Login Notifications
Facebook login notifications adds an extra security feature to your Facebook account. Once you enable the login notifications, it will send you an alert if someone logs into your Facebook account from a new place or on a new device.
How to enable login notifications
As usual, Login to your account and click on the drop down icon at the top right corner of your profile. Select Settings from the menu that appears.
Secondly, navigate to the Security and login tab
From the Security and login tab, scroll down and search for “Use two-factor authentication“, click on the Edit button beside it (See screenshot).
Also, ensure to turn on “Get alerts about unrecognized logins“.
Select, “Set up” to enable two-factor authorization. This means that you must authorize each Facebook login attempt (via your phone) before you can access your account. So Facebook will always send an authorization SMS to your phone.
Next, a confirmation menu pop up, click on enable and follow the instructions.
