Here are some privacy tips on Facebook as follows,
Last month, I have received multiple messages including a pin request on my phone to reset my Facebook password. It seems to be someone is trying to get my password. I logged into my Facebook account and I have tracked our Facebook account login activity. I have not found any login activity to my Facebook account from other devices or browsers that confirm the user in question had not successfully signed into my Facebook account. She/he is just trying to get my password, but I was scared about the attempts so I have immediately changed the password. If the user in question had successfully logged in then I can view them in the login activity so you should also enable this option for the security of your Facebook account. Therefore, here is a quick guide to track unusual login activity on Facebook.

  1. Log into your Facebook account.
  2. Click on Settings under a drop down menu at top right corner.

You may have multiple activities, according to the devices and browsers.
  4. Now, we are going to secure Facebook account for any unusual logins. Once enable this option, you will get a notification when someone logged into your Facebook account from different browsers or devices that you have never used to log into Facebook.
