How to see where you’re logged in on Facebook

Before illustrating how to reach the list of Facebook devices logged in on your account, we want to go over the details displayed for each one.

Where am I logged in Facebook? Get details from the list of connected devices

Each entry on Facebook’s “Where you’re logged in” list shows:

  • The type of the connected device – e.g., Windows PC, iPhone, iPad, Mac, the name of your Android smartphone.
  • The approximate geographical location of the device. It can be hidden or faked using a VPN.
  • The app used to access your Facebook account – i.e., Facebook app or browsers, like Firefox or Chrome.
  • The last time that device accessed your Facebook account.

These details should help you identify if someone else is using your Facebook account without your knowledge or if you neglected to logout at any point. No matter your device, it’s easy to reach the “Where You’re Logged In” list to review all its entries.

Access the list of Facebook-connected devices from your browser on Windows or Mac

Whether you’re using a Mac or a Windows 10 computer or device, open Facebook in your preferred web browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc.) and log in. Look for the downward arrow shown in the top-right corner and click or tap on it. In the menu that opens, access Settings & Privacy.

Press on Settings & Privacy from the dropdown menu

From the Settings & Privacy menu, click or tap on Settings.

Access Settings to see all the devices connected to your Facebook

On the Settings page, select the “Security and Login” tab from the column on the left. Alternatively, you can get to this page by accessing this link: Facebook Security and Login.

Access the Security and Login page

The first section is called “Where You’re Logged In“ and, by default, only lists the two devices used most recently to access your Facebook account. The current session is displayed at the top with the Active now status. Click or tap on See More to reveal a list of all the devices currently logged into your Facebook account.

NOTE: You can only see the IP address when you’re connected to Facebook through a browser on a PC. This last option is not available if you’re accessing Facebook from a mobile browser app, as detailed in the Bonus chapter at the end of this tutorial.

Use the Android app to see all the devices logged into Facebook

The process is not straightforward on Android either. Launch the Facebook app on your Android smartphone or tablet and tap on the hamburger button in the top-right corner.

Then, scroll down to the bottom of the screen and access Settings & Privacy.

The name of the Android device where you’re currently using the Facebook app is shown at the top of the list (in our case, Nokia 5.3), and you can see its Active now status. Tap on See all in the top right corner.

How to log out of Facebook from any devices connected to your account

It doesn’t matter if you’re using the browser on Mac or Windows 10, or if you’re connecting through the Facebook app available on Android and iOS. You can logout of Facebook at any time from the “Where you’re logged in” section, ending the active sessions for any devices you either don’t know or are no longer using. And, if you’re trying to cut down on your social media addiction, you can press one button to logout Facebook from all other devices, except for the one you’re currently using. But don’t worry, it’s even easier to disconnect the Active now Facebook session, as we explain in this chapter.
