I had to log into facebook from a different phone today, because of a new app I was trying out for one of my clients. Facebook did not recognize the phone I was logging into on. It asked me several questions about my location and then locked me out of logging in on that device. It probably also has to do with me forgetting my password.
Facebook then sent me an email:
