I have setup Facebook chat in Messages on my Mac. The problem is that every time Messages logs in to chat, I receive an email saying:

It looks like someone logged into "Facebook Chat" on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 11:07am. If this was you, please disregard this email. If this wasn't you, please secure your account, as someone else may be accessing it.

I understand that this is essentially a Facebook security mechanism to warn users about unauthorised access to their account. My question is: Is there a way to mark Messages as an 'authorised application' so that I don't get this notification email every time?

  • are you logging in from different locations (IP)

  • No. It's always from the same computer... same place.

Go to your Facebook

Settings-Security and disable the notifications there

enter image description here

  • This will turn off all login notifications. I still want notifications for any fraudulent login. I just don't want it for Facebook chat.
