Facebook Security Settings Access Code
Step 1 ) The following image Enter Security Code to Continue lets you know that if you don’t enter a security code in the field provided, you will not be able to log into your Facebook account.
Enter Security Code to Continue Settings

- Click on Can’t find your code? link to view the options available to get the code.
- Click on Continue button once you have entered the security code.
Step 2 ) The following image shows you a window with a few options to retrieve your code or get help. If you don’t have an App installed in your Smartphone click on Text me a security code link.
Step 3 ) The following image Remember Browser gives you two options, Save Browser or Don’t Save the browser session into the a cookie that gets deposited into the browser temp folder. This lets the browser know about your previous session next time you decide to log into your account. What this means is that you don’t have to type the security code again.
Note: If you delete your browser cache you will have to type your new security code again to access your account.
Step 4 ) Once you log into Facebook you will see the following notice. Review this notice and make sure the logging from the browser and or device is correct.
Step 5 ) The Login Alert gives you some information of what has happened recently in your account. You have the option to either Manage Alerts or simply Go to News Feed.
Step 6 ) The following image Login Alert displays the e-mail alert sent to your e-mail account. This lets you know of the recent activity in your account. It is important to check this e-mail and take action if you know that it was not you who logged into your account recently.
You have the option to click Check Login or Manage Alerts buttons. If you know it was you who logged in then you can disregard the e-mail.
I hope the information above helps you. As you can see Facebook has done a great job implementing this security feature for your account.

I got a new number and im locked out of my fb please help
Hi Machele, can you provide more information? For example what new number are you referring to? Are you referring to the number that is entered in the following field Enter code in this text box? Try to clear your browser cache and request for a new number again.
I’m locked out of my facebook I’ve tried everything right now I’m stuck at the get new password but ut never sends me one its driving me insain my daughter tried to set up her messenger account using my account and that’s when i got locked out
Hi Sarah, sorry to hear about your issue. From what you tell me the security worked in your case, when your daughter tried to use your account to set up her account. Have you tried to reset or receive the passcode? Check also with your daughter just in case she is receiving your passcode.
Can you help me? Someone hacked my Facebook account, changing the e-mail address and password. It’s been over a week, so I can’t even remember what all has happened, but now, when I try to login, it says I’m using a different e-mail than I’ve recently used to secure the account. If I choose my original e-mail or phone number on the account, it says I can’t use them. If I say I want to use a new e-mail, and use my work e-mail, it says the hacker’s e-mail and my phone number will both be deleted, and I click yes. It then sends a security code to my work e-mail, but instead of giving me a place to enter it in my browser, it comes back and says Facebook limits the number of times you can do something. I’ve been stuck right here for several days, receiving security codes, but having no place to enter them.
Hi Lisa, have you been in contact with Facebook support? They should be able to help you.
