    I think it’s ridiculous that there’s no MODIFY SECURITY QUESTION option on one’s facebook profile ESPECIALLY if there is a few personally identifiable settings to implement.

  19. This is simple. No need for you to create new account… this happens when you use different internet provider, what you have to do is to log-in your account to where you have previously logged-in then click ACCOUNT SETTINGS, then SECURITY, then ACTIVE SESSIONS click EDIT and click END SESSIONS. Voila!
