How can I know if someone else accesses my Facebook account?

My sister is a major pain and I have this feeling that she might be accessing my Facebook account. Is there any way I can track if that might be happening?

Interesting question. I’ve never had this asked before, but I can understand where you’re coming from. I have a five year old kids who keeps wanting to play Facebook games, and it’s only a matter of time before he’ll figure out how to impersonate me.

So, how can you keep an eye on your account. Well, if you click on Account in the top right-hand corner and pick Account Settings you’ll find a section where you can configure your account. Click on the Security menu and you’ll see a section like this:

Under Login Notifications you can tick a box and Facebook will send you an email every time someone logs into your account. If you’ve just logged in, you can ignore the email, but if it wasn’t you, then you’ll know something’s up. Much better than sticking waterproof metal detectors all around your computer desk, huh?
