To secure your Facebook account, you should consider using two-factor authentication functionality.

The code is sent to your phone number. Since the phone with you most of the time, no one else should be able to obtain the 6-digit code and your account will remain secure from unauthorized access even if your password is hacked. Let's see howprotect Facebook access violations by unauthorized persons.

A 6-digit code will be sent to the number provided each time the account is used with an unknown device or browser.
