You can tell if someone is SPYING on your Facebook in seconds – and how to stop them

FACEBOOK holds some of your most personal info – but strangers or even pals might by spying on you.

You should regularly check to see where you’re logged in, to make sure that you’re not being watched.

There are several ways someone could gain access to your account.

You may have logged in at a friend’s house, or on a family computer.

Alternatively, you may have accessed Facebook in a public place, like a library or on a hotel PC.

And someone may simply have hacked your account, illicitly gaining access to your password.

Once someone is in your account, they could see private photos and even read your personal messages.

Fortunately, Facebook lets you see where you’re logged in, giving you device and location details for each session.

You can see the type of browser and even the date and time for when your account has been accessed.

Importantly, you can end any active Facebook sessions that you think are suspicious.

This will lock any snoopers out – although it’s worth changing your password too, if you think you’ve been compromised.

How to see the devices your Facebook is logged in on via desktop

First you’ll need to open your web browser of choice and log into your Facebook.

Next, click on the drop down arrow on the top banner of your homepage and select “Settings”.

Once on the Settings page you’ll need to click “Security and login”, which should pop up as an option on the left-hand side of the screen.

Then roll your mouse over to the “Where you’re logged in” section.

This section will allow you to see all the devices that your Facebook has been logged in on, including any that are currently active.

You’ll also be able to see the time and date that the login occurred, what type of device was being used and its location.

If you click on the three vertical dots to the right hand side of each listed session you’ll be able to log out or report it as not being you.

You’ll also be given the option to “Log out of all sessions”.

How to see the devices your Facebook is logged in on via smartphone

The process is very similar if you want to check where your Facebook is logged in via the app on your phone or tablet.

On the app you’ll need to click on the three horizontal lines in the lower right-hand corner.

Then scroll down until you see “Settings” and click on it.

Once you’re in “Settings” scroll down to “Security” and click on “Security and login”.

You’ll then see the section “Where you’re logged in” and you can click “See all” to see all the devices.

As with the desktop method, you’ll be able to see the time and date that the login occurred, what type of device was being used and its location.

If you click on the three vertical dots to the right hand side of each listed session you’ll be able to log out or report it as not being you.

You’ll also be given the option to “Log out of all sessions”.
