Did you know that there is a way to check which devices your Facebook Account is currently or has recently been accessed? Security and privacy has always been Facebook’s bane of existence that is why it continues to build improvements in its security features; one of which is what Facebook calls Active Sessions.
According to Facebook:
The Active Sessions section of your Security Settings page shows you a list of the recent times you’ve accessed your Facebook account. Each entry includes the date and time you signed into Facebook, your approximate location when signing in, and the type of device you were using to access your account. You will also see the option to end any active session on the right side of each entry.
This is a great tool especially when you happen to accidentally leave your Facebook account open. You can easily monitor any unauthorized access to your account and end it anytime you wish without having to log out in the actual device/computer it is on. Here is how you can see your Active Sessions in a regular browser:
- Login to you Facebook account.
- Select Account | Account Settings then click Security (at the menu on the left)
- Click Active Sessions. The details of your current session and recently ended ones will then be shown.
Here is a screenshot of mine:
As shown above, a short history of your sessions is shown including the approximate location and the device or browser used. Try it now and see for yourself.
