Track your Facebook login attempt

Facebook provides a feature which allows you to see all active sessions from different devices and apps together with the date it was last accessed, from where and which device type. In most cases, that should be enough information to find any suspicious activity.

This also comes in handy if you logged in to your friend's computer or on some public laptop, but forgot to log out.

To know if someone is logged into your Facebook account without your permission:-

Go to your settings page
Under option Security and Login you'll see the link "Where You're Logged In."

You will find all your active Facebook logins from desktop or mobile. It will also provide data on the location, browser and device. If something seems fishy, you also have the ability to "end activity" from individual or all devices. This means that the particular device or app cannot access your account anymore without your password.

Also keep in mind that the logged in location shown in report will not be accurate as some times it will show the gateway location of your internet provider which may be some different location. You can just check the device information from which account is accessed to confirm either it was wrong attempt.
