after doing the above step then facebook will send you a verification email stating that you had set your security setting.

Hi Jacobian Cool,

A new device named “jacobian” was added to your Facebook account (Today at 11:23pm).

If this device was added without your permission, please remove it from your account immediately, then change your password.
