Facebook itself later extended this policy to other account users. In the first phase, it promotes users to set up their accounts to keep their accounts safe. and has shifted to a semi-compulsory policy for users who are not yet set to complete
The Facebook Protect condition, where Facebook notifies users, states that If any user of the account who received the notification does not take action within 15 days, they will not be able to log in until they are set up.
Why didn’t I receive a Facebook Protect notification?
For some users who do not receive notifications, it can be divided into two cases:
1. The user has Facebook Protect set up (most of them are like this).
2. Haven’t reached the queue to be notified.
If not open within 15 days, what will happen?
Facebook states that if a user doesn’t enable Facebook Protect within 15 days of receiving the notification, they won’t be able to log in. Facebook Protect must be enabled.
Put simply, Facebook Protect must be enabled before you can access it. If not enabled, the system will force it to be enabled anyway (not enabled = unable to play Facebook).

Users can access the Facebook Protect settings menu by:
Open the Facebook app > tap “Menu” (3 lower right underscores) > tap “Settings” (at Settings & Privacy) > tap “Password & Security” > tap Facebook Protect (or “ Check your important security settings.” Optional.)
Then set the security settings according to the instructions given by the system.
