Facebook accessed

My Facebook seems to be accessed by someone else. I saw it on where you’re logged in on facebooks security section.

I have the IP address is any way I can search who owns this ip? I tried using a IP address search but they only seem to show as belonging to the internet provider.

Hey,

You can take the IP to the guards, who can request what endpoint (router/mobile) was issued the IP at the time and date your Facebook was accessed. Note that the ISP may not release the info unless a court forces them to - this depends on the ISP.
Realistically speaking though, that's a lot of hassle and a pain in the hole for all involved.
From talking to guards, they tend to act proportionally to the damage caused. So they may not agree that your better half seeing you sending racy messages to someone else as a high priority, as an example.

Change your password and switch on 2 factor authentication. And don't walk away and leave your laptop/phone unlocked.

It's basic enough steps, but you're only trying to keep out people with basic enough knowledge most of the time.

Changing your password should be the first thing you do.

The most important thing - never ever ever use the same password for more than a single thing!

Thanks. Changed my password and added 2 step authentication.
Bit worrying I suspect that it’s my friends toxic ex as his town is wheres listed on the log. That’s what drew my attention. I haven’t been in that town in a while and wouldn’t have used other WiFi than my mobile internet when there. I’m not really an active user in Facebook I don’t have many friends just family and couple of close friends so I don’t know what he would gain from hacking my Facebook.
