why some users need to enable it

“You will lose access to your Facebook account until you activate it.” A few days ago, some Facebook users received this message about Facebook Protect telling them thatthey only had 15 days to activate it.

This Facebook security system allows you to protect accounts exposed to cyberattacks like those of politicians, journalists or activists, says Presse Citron. First deployed in the United States in 2018, Facebook Protect was launched in 2020 in France and in around fifty countries.

Activation consists of two-step authentication. No more simple passwords. You will need to take an extra step by linking your phone number for your account to be completely secure. If you already have two-factor authentication, just click “Finish” and you can use your Facebook account for many years to come.
