    Facebook has a new security feature. They are "Log On Approvals". I did this because I was getting emails from FB saying that an "unknown device" was trying to sign on. The Log On Approvals have me give FB my cell phone number. When I log in a certain screen comes up which asks for a security code. I would then get texted a code that I needed to enter and submit. THEN, I was able to log on. Last night I did the same routine and I did not get that code immediately which I always did....my phone was silent and no code was coming through. I attempted several times. There information on the screen which is new that says it can take up to 12 hours to receive this code. This morning I received about 10 messages with the same code. When I tried to enter it, I then received a message that it was incorrect. I contacted facebook and wrote what the detailed problem was. I researched during the day and others are having the same problem. One person said he re-registered his cell phone, however I don't understand how he could do this, if he couldn't log in. I also read to text F to 32665 which I did. I received a code with letters and numbers, the other codes were only numbers, but figured I would try it. When I did, I received a message that it was incorrect. So now, I cannot log into FB due to this wonderful security feature which I wish I never turned on. I would appreciate any help, so that I can log back into FB.
    Thank you. :mad:
