    Help - I keep receiving messages that I have an unusual login from a device or location you don't usually use. It comes from an area called Drayton Bassett. I live in Wolverhampton. I keep going in to facebook and changing my password, but the message still keeps coming up. When I go into the security settings on facebook for my PC and phone it says I am logged in from Drayton Bassett. Does anyone know how to rectify this or what the problem is. I did reply to a message a while ago on facebook to someone I didnt know so could they have accessed my facebook page or even my computer by doing this. I have searched all the help sections and cannot find an answer.

    Your ISP is likely routing you through an office or network node that they have there if your phone and PC both say that's where they. I assume Facebook has an option to tell them that it is you?

    Probably not, especially if your phone and PC are showing that same location.
