How to Turn on Login Approvals on Facebook 

To keep your Facebook account secure, we recommend that you turn on Login Approvals. This extra security feature asks you to verify who you are before accessing your account from an unknown browser or device. Just like 2-factor authentication, “Login Approvals” lets you confirm that it’s you logging in to Facebook. Here’s how to sign up!

Turn on two-factor authentication to help keep your account secure. Two-factor authentication will protect your account by requiring a six-digit verification code to sign in.

Protect your Facebook account with our newest feature. When you login, someone will be able to see a notification on their phone or tablet from us. The special code that comes in that message is the only way someone can log into your account.

If you’re not comfortable with the settings of your Facebook account, or if you feel like there is someone accessing your info without your permission, you can use this tool to set up additional security layers. This will help keep your information safe and secure.

How Do I Turn On My Facebook Login Approvals

  1. Go to Facebook, and log in using your own login credentials.

2. In the upper right corner on the top bar, click on the security/privacy icon. Then, select “See More Settings” to go straight to your security/privacy settings page.

3. Choose “Security” from the upper right menu.

4. Choose “Login Approvals” from the options. When you check the box, Facebook will prompt you with a note about how they deliver approval codes. Select continue.

5. Read through the next prompt. Click “Continue” to move forward with the setup.

6. Check for the text. Facebook will then send you a text to your listed phone number with the 6-digit code. Enter the code in the box and click “Continue”..

  • Facebook offers a one-week period where you do not always need the code; choose whether or not you’d like to use their one-week opt-out by checking or unchecking the box.

7. Use the verification code to log in with. Next time you (or anyone else) tries to log in to your Facebook account, they will be prompted to enter a special verification code. Once Facebook has verified that browser, it will not prompt you for a code again.
