Logged in with Facebook
Maybe you have noticed your account is been accessed from different browsers and devices but not sure who it is, maybe the last time you used your friend’s device or computer to access your Facebook account you didn’t remember to log off. Perhaps someone else is using your password to access your account. Or you mistakenly saved your password while logging in a public computer – at your workplace or cyber café, etc.
The good news is that you don’t need to worry much, Facebook tracks where you’re logged in, so you can see every device logged into your account, and end any sessions you don’t want active. It’s as simple as it sounds.
Primarily, Facebook provides data on the location, the device or browser used, and the last accessed date or time for every active login session. If you see any unfamiliar devices or locations, you can end those sessions from your current logged in device.
How to find where your account is logged in

- Click on a heading that has at least one active session to expand it and see the details of each session.
- The nest is to carefully check the access time, location, and device of the session. If it’s a match to a session you started you can leave it, but if you did started it in another device that isn’t yours but has forgotten you can change your password or but if you see a session from an iPad, tablet, iOS or android which you own you may ignore.
- To terminate a session, click “End Activity” (If only one active session under that heading is active the section closes automatically.
