That's what it said when I logged in last night, and it made me go through some verification pages then told me my account was accessed from the UK (I'm from US).

I don't see how my account would have been hacked because my password would be impossible to guess because it has nothing to do with me and is alphanumeric with caps, like AbCd123.

I'm diligent about internet security, so it's not like I went to a page that looked like facebook.com and typed my info there or anything.

Any idea how this could have happened?

Could just be a facebook glitch. I got the same message a while ago, but nothing was wrong with my account. Or maybe you were just hacked, and so was I.

Could be an error of Facebook, misreading your IP as being from another part of the world.

Alternatively, your ISP could have been using a proxy for some reason?

Did you try to log in from your cellphone? My fb freaked out after using Opera mini which apparently routed traffic to/from Norway (propably their serverside compression).

I only access my fb from my cellphone, and laptop in no more than 5 locations consistently in the past 3 years.

haha, I see what you did there. No, after the verification page I had to change my pw. Then I logged off fb and changed my pw again (paranoid, you see, this is why I don't understand how anyone could have obtained my pw).

The M Night meme isn't funny on its own.. but it's way funny if you followed him. The man made one popular movie with a plot twist, The Sixth Sense (Personally I guessed the twist a mile away and the movie had nothing else going. Fuck that film.), and then he made every single movie with a plot twist after that. I remember he was in a Time magazine cover story as "The Next Spielberg?" (no no no no :lol) and he actually said something like "I have discovered the secret to making a beloved film... it's having a twist!" The man deserves to live on as a ridiculous meme.

Did that to me about 2 weeks ago when I went to Hawaii. Said I was trying to access my account from a different location and that I would need to varify different information about myself. Pet's name etc. etc. Sounds like someone got into your account, change that password ASAP.

I got this message after I logged in from my phone. It didn't recognise my the browser I was using and possibly would depend on how your traffic is routed from your ISP/mobile provider.
