Can Two People Be Logged Into The Same Facebook Account At The Same Time ?

March 21st, 2009

Ok, I just noticed that a lot of people were asking this question and no one gave a ‘tested answer’.

It took only two mins for me to test this out and the answer is YES, two people can be logged into same Facebook account from two different computers, either on lan or anywhere in the world !

I have no idea why facebook allows this feature ? Does it really make sense, I don’t think so ! Coz, I practically cannot find a valid reason why facebook allows this.

Now after this I tried to figure out if, facebook had any such feature that would allow me to look at my past login session details (yes, something like the gmail feature, which allows you to check who had logged in recently :) ), and I could not find anything :(.

So, to conclude, two different people can log into the same account from different computer on facebook and this goes unnoticed, as there is no way to figure out who logged in and from where!

Latest update: All those who were logging to someone else’s account at the same time when they were logged in may not be able to do so. Facebook has improved their security, as a result of which users can know who else is logging into their FaceBook account and from which computer.

    My daughter had deactivated her facebook account and I tried to reactivate it using the password she used before. For some unknown reason my girlfriend can access my daughters reactivated facebook from my daughters computer in her room but if I try to log on from another computer at work or elsewhere it tells me that the password is incorrect. Can someone please help me with this? Is this possible? or could my girlfriend have changed the password and didnt tell me cause she keeps telling me that shes logging on with the password that we both know.

    It is necessary for two of us to access our TVPHC page & edit it. How is this done? It is ridiculous that if one computer is tied up that another cannot access the account we share.

    The reason they allow it could be, and I emphasize COULD BE because many people (like me) are sometimes logged in simultaneously via computer, iPad, and iPhone, or any other tab/phone brands of course :)
    My computer is pretty much always on, and sometimes I leave the house while logged in to Facebook, then I start using Facebook with my phone once outside.
    Frankly, I don’t really see what’s the big deal if you can be logged in with different devices at the same time. Tell me one good reason why this is not cool. Seriously!

    someone used my computer to access their facebook account. They did not log out.
    Later I found strange activities on my computer when i tried to use it. basically seemed like someone was hacking into my computer via a bluetooth application, and had managed to turn off my antivirus and firewall! I also had trouble disabling the bluetooth accessibility.
    Then when i found the facebook account still open (ie logged in) I noticed a number ’2′ suggesting another user… so I logged out.
    Please comment.
