Facebook – Monitoring Access and Disconnecting an Account

No matter how hard we try to protect our Facebook accounts, there may be times when we run into issues. There may be some kind of security issue that arises making our lives quite difficult. Luckily, Facebook helps its users in every way that they can. They offer many security features that can be easily accessed.

1. After logging into Facebook, go to the settings page. Click on the arrow at the top right corner of the screen and click ‘settings’, which appears near the end of the drop down list.


2. On the new page, click on the tab that says ‘security.’ This is located at the top left side of your screen. To the right, you will see a list of options.
