How to see where you are logged into Facebook and log out

If you are suspicious about who has access to your Facebook account, it is a good idea to verify all the devices that are connected to it. You may have left your session open on another device, or someone might have hacked your account and is already logged in from a location you do not know. There is a simple way to check what devices are connected to your account and to remotely log out suspicious ones. Let's find out how to do this on your smartphone or on your computer:

NOTE: We start with how to manage the access to your Facebook account using a web browser in Windows, Mac OS or Linux. The second section is dedicated to Android users and the last to iPhones and iPads. Scroll down to the section that interests you.

How to see where you are logged into Facebook and log out, from a PC

Open Facebook in your web browser and log in. Click or tap the menu button (a downward arrow) in the top-right corner, and choose Settings.

Open Facebook's settings, on your PC

On the Settings page, click or tap the Security and Login link in the column with settings, found on the left side of the screen. Alternatively, you can skip the previous two steps and open the security settings directly by using this link: Facebook Security and Login.

Open Security and Login settings on Facebook

In the section "Where You're Logged In," Facebook lists the two most recent devices connected to your account, and a "See More" link underneath. Click this link to open the complete list of devices that are logged in and that were logged in, in the past.

See all the devices connected to your Facebook account

For each device, you can see:

  • The device type (e.g. Windows PC, Android, iPhone)
  • The geographical location of the device. Keep in mind that this location can be hidden or faked using a VPN service.
  • The app used to access your Facebook account (e.g., Facebook app, the Chrome browser, etc).
  • The last time when each device connected to your Facebook account.

The first item in the list is the device that you are using right now to access Facebook. Hence, you can ignore this entry. If you have doubts about other devices in the list, click or tap the three vertical dots button on their right sides, to take action.

The full list of devices connected to your Facebook account

The three dots button opens a menu with two options:

  • Not you? It means that you do not remember accessing your Facebook account from this device. Choosing this option means that you want to terminate the connection, and communicate to Facebook that this activity might have been illicit. Be careful to check your memory so that you do not get someone you know in trouble because you have used their device to access your account. If this is the case, use the next option.
  • Log Out. This option terminates the access from the selected device to your Facebook account. If you know the device, but you are not comfortable with who has access to it, then this option is the one to use.

Choose the action that fits your situation best.

Take action for a device connected to your Facebook account

If you see several suspicious devices, and you believe that your Facebook account security was compromised, you can take more drastic action and click or tap "Log Out Of All Sessions."

After the action is carried out, the only connection to your Facebook account remains the one from the device you are using right now.

On the Log Out Of All Sessions confirmation pop-up window, there is a link to Secure Your Account that leads to a wizard on Facebook that guides you through the steps you can take to secure your Facebook account.
