facebook login alerts - read this before you get caught

Postby nevermorenevermore » Thu Apr 19, 2012 7:44 pm

so, my s2bx is quite savvy, technically. i recently logged into her FB account, (carefully, from her computer, from her browser, but in a chrome incognito window) only to get the message "Name New Device"

Please give this device a name. Because you have Login Notifications enabled, you will receive a notification that you logged in from this machine.


sh*t! but i kept my head, and I DID NOT hit [Save Device] or [Don't Save]. I closed the window.

I was concerned that she would know someone had tried to access her FB. So, on MY computer, i followed the instructions here https://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=389991097130 (they are slightly wrong) and set up SMS notification (to me) and email notification (to me) and tried the same thing on my fb account.

I was able to confirm that if you CLOSE the window to get the f--k out, no notification is sent. (at least right now...until facebook reads this post and changes it). I also confirmed that if you hit [Save Device] or [Don't Save] it does send an SMS with the following message:

A new unknown device logged into your facebook account[/quote] If this wasn't authorized, check your email for instructions.


I logged into her email, to confirm that she didn't get email notification either. All clear. But Im pretty freaked out.


so, lessons learned

-as the list says, don't overestimate or underestimate your s2bx
-even if you have passwords, the watched might be watching
-be smart.
-if i had time/resources i would add a keylogger/ root her iphone.

I had those set up almost a year ago. :)

Scary thing is that about two weeks before getting served, I received a login fail notification from my bank...
