Hello and welcome to FixYa.

If you are logging in from a different computer (but on your local countrys/facebook network) you would have to set the computer's name to something specific and maybe answer a couple of security validation questions.

Also the same stands for if you are logging in from a different country on a different computer from your original one (more security questions/identity validations needed).

Furthermore, this can happen if you are using a proxy or anonymizer which hides your original location/internet settings etc. If you are using the same account from both behind the proxy and normal browser, it might cause some unusual activity (e.g: see yourself as logged in as a contact when you are logged in).

Additional login info or security validations on facebook are triggered by default to verify that your account has not been hacked and the user's identity accessing the account is the same, only the computer (and/or) country has changed.

If you are having problems logging in,please check your internet connection, scan your computer for viruses or malware, or do a general cleanup of your internet browser's cache by going to: Tools-->Internet Options--> Hit the "Delete" button on browsing history section (this is for IE8).

Regards from FixYa team.

Be careful! This may very well be a fishing email trying to get you to open it. Don't open this email. Don't click on any of its links! Login to your account by typing in the correct web site name in your browser and check your activity yourself. If all seems normal, then forget the 'unusual activity' email.

Check that the "secret" questions/answers that you need to use to reset your password have not been changed. Check all your "profile" settings. Change your password.

I get a message Unusual Login Activity - Please Review when try to log on to face book and it directed me to is it a true message from FB or a fack site?

That is a true message from facebook. When checking for any real website over a fake address, look for "https" in the beginning of the address. Make sure the "s" is connected with the "http". This ensures that you are entering a "secure" web address. Also make sure the name of the website is the same name of the company providing you a service.
