Facebook Now Lets Users Know If They Are Targeted by State-Sponsored Attacks

By Alex Neil Posted Oct 21, 2015 in Facebook News/ Social Media News


Back in 2012, Google rolled out a feature that let users know if their account had been logged in from a different device. Google started warning people via email that their account has been logged in through {device name}. This added an extra layer of security to their account.

Now, Facebook gives users warning as well if their accounts are targeted by government-sponsored attacks. The warning looks something like this:

Login approvals work like an extra layer of security, making logging in to your account a two step process. If you log in from a different device or browser, a security code will be sent to your phone and as the owner of the phone, you will then be able to enter that code to proceed to log into your account.

This feature should ideally be activated by users when they create a Facebook account but many of them are not aware that the feature exists and some of them do not want to do an extra step when logging into their account from a different device or browser.

But by this new warning feature, if Facebook believes that the person is targeted by a state-sponsored attack, it will warn that person by giving the above described warning message.

Explaining this new warning message, Alex Stamos, Facebook’s Chief Security Officer, says:

“We do this because these types of attacks tend to be more advanced and dangerous than others, and we strongly encourage affected people to take the actions necessary to secure all of their online accounts,”
