Yesterday I was startled to receive a notification on my phone that my Facebook account had been disabled. The notification advised me to login using a computer to get more information.
When I had a chance to do that, it became clear that someone had logged into my FB account, from a completely different location than the devices that FB already knew about an with an unrecognized device. Sensing that my account password had somehow been compromised, they went ahead and disabled it, then gave me the option to change my password in order to enable it again.
Not a bad move by Facebook, IMHO. Of course it got me thinking, as much as I travel and use airport and/or hotel wifi, should I make changing my social network passwords a monthly event or something along those lines? I’m considering it.
