    I have two FB accounts, one of them keeps telling me to change my password, I have Two-Factor Authentication, so FB sends me an email first with a code to put into FB, then from there to change my PW. This prompt happens every 3 days like clockwork. Its not random.Its been happening now for the last 2 weeks, every 3 days. Also, when I look at all my log-in logs for the week, in (security and login) all the log-ins are from my device, from my location only. No other devices or locations are seen. Im wondering what is going on? Has anyone had this, or is having this issue?

    Thanks for any input.

    The two-factor settings for password change. I don't use it so have no idea.

    Read this article, it may or may not explain why FB is asking you to change your password so much.

    Check for apps that you have allowed access to FB to post for you which you shouldn't anyway. Are you using proxies/vpn's to access facebook? That would be another reason why it may be wanting you to change it.

    no, not using VPN or Proxie browsers to log into FB. I did log into my tablet a couple of weeks ago. Before that was last year while overseas. Never got a pw change request though, but that was last year, maybe FB change their policy. I did log out of my FB on the tablet. But I think I need to remove the account all together from my tablet. I will check out the link, thanks.
