Question about Facebook Social Network
Welcome to FIxYa!
If this is the first time you encounter it, DO NOT keep on entering your email address and password. There are a lot of spywares that are known to manipulate your browser by pointing you to a bogus Facebook site then CAPTURE or record your email address and password.
On the other hand, it might be one of the security measures initiated by Facebook. But as far as I have experienced, the only recent security measures initiated by Facebook was the "phone number" confirmation. I am a regular Facebook user and as I am writing this, I am logging in and out of Facebook from three different computers with different IP addresses to check if there is such a thing that you are describing. There is none on my end.
Here's what to do. (I assume that you are entering your email address and password correctly.)
1. Before logging in to Facebook, make sure that the web address on the address bar of your browser is "http://www.facebook.com/" and nothing else. Please refer to the image below.
2. Login. Then whether it lets you through or not, make sure that the Facebook domain name is still there right after "http://www." or "https://www.". Please refer to the image below.
If it looks like what I just describe here, just follow the procedure properly because it might be one of the security measures initiated by Facebook.
If not, update your anti-virus/anti-malware program and do a full scan.
If it lets you through Facebook but keeps on repeating every time you login, then you might have not followed properly what facebook is asking you everytime you login.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa and keep me posted.
