This service departs from the increasing number of people who use Facebook, whether for business or interconnected with others, users need a control to protect their accounts from unauthorized access.
Login Approvals is a two-factor authentication system that requires users to enter a code that is sent up to the user’s mobile phone number via SMS. With that code, then the user has successfully logged into the new device.
Once you enter this security code, you have the option to remember passwords in a computer (or device), so you do not need to do this step again in order to login.
