We want everyone to have a safe experience on Facebook. That’s why we have dedicated teams and intelligent security systems working around the clock to help keep your account secure.

We also provide optional security controls that you can turn on for added protection—you get to decide which features you want to use.

Starting today, you can try a new tool called Security Checkup that makes it easier to find and use the security controls for your account.

Sometime over the next few weeks, you’ll see a reminder at the top of your News Feed. Click “Get Started” and follow the prompts through three easy steps.


The first step helps you log out of devices you haven’t used in a while or forgot about, so you’re only logged into Facebook where you want to be.


Be attentive to your Facebook because in the coming weeks, you will receive a message that appears at the top of your News Feed. Just after click “Start” and follow three quick and simple steps.



Next, you can turn on a feature called login alerts, which lets you know if anyone else tries to log into your account. We’ll send you a notification or email alert if someone tries to log into your account from an unfamiliar device or browser.


Security Checkup is now available globally on desktop and will be coming to mobile soon.

Remember, you can always access the full list of available security tools and features by visiting facebook.com/settings and clicking the Security tab.
