  2. Login Approvals – Enabling this feature allows you to use your phone as an extra layer of security to keep others from logging into your account. This means that when someone tries to log-in to your account from a browser that has not been previously used to access your account, you will receive a notification requiring your approval before access is granted.
    1. Click on Settings ==> Security ==> Edit
    2. Check box “Require a security code to access my account from unknown browsers”
      • Benefit: You are able to prove that it is actually you trying to access your account.
      • Note: These codes can only be sent to your cell phone via text message or through the Facebook app
    3. Click Get Started ==> Choose your phone type: Android, iPhone, iPod touch, or Other
      • If you choose Android, iPhone, or iPod touch:
        1. You will be asked to make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook App on your device.
        2. Next, you will need to activate Code Generator which will create new security codes in your phone’s Facebook app every 30 seconds. Follow the 4 steps provided on your screen.
        3. Using Code Generator, you will enter the security code provided.
        4. You then will have the option to delay needing a security code for a week after set-up or requiring a security code right away. We recommend you check the box that says, “No thanks, require a code right away.”
      • If you choose Other:
        1. You will be sent a text message with a code to confirm access to your phone for login approvals.
        2. Enter the security code once you have received it.
        3. You then will have the option to delay needing a security code for a week after set-up or requiring a security code right away. We recommend you check the box that says, “No thanks, require a code right away.”
