  9. 9
    We enter our password
    .
    The screen will show "For your security, please re-enter your password to continue". The video section is going to be left out to avoid revealing the password. After we enter our password, there will be some information on the screen. Specifically, "When logging in from an unknown browser, you'll need a security code. You can only get security codes from your phone's Facebook app or by text message. By entering the code, you can prove that it's really you trying to log In." What this means is that if we try to log into Facebook account from an unknown browser, we'll need to enter a security code. This is just another way to protect our account if we are using Facebook, for example, in the Internet cafe or insecure network.
