Facebook has added two new security features. They don't do anything more to keep users' personal information safe, but they do make it harder for scammers to exploit any information they get hold of.
One allows users to approve the devices they usually use to log in, and notifies them via email or text when it's accessed from elsewhere.
"For example, you can save your home computer, your school or work computer, and your mobile phone," says software engineer Lev Popov.
"Once you've done this, whenever someone logs in to your account from a device not on this list, we'll ask the person to name the device."
