Login Notifications: Most of us keep this setting disable, but for the better security it’s important to enable by checking one of the options whether Email or text message. After enabling this feature, you will be notified whenever you use any devices or computer that you haven’t used before.
Login Approvals : Whenever you tried to login account from any unknown devices or the computer that you haven’t used before, Facebook will ask for the security code to access the account.
