How can I tell whether someone else is hacking my Facebook account?

I have already enabled the checkbox in account settings. I am worried because the IP address and city name shown on recent activity is always different from my city. Is it possible that the city name can be different?

    1.enable HTTPS in Facebook in account settings
    2. enable TWO FACTOR AUTHENTICATION IN FACEBOOK http://maketecheasier.com/configure-facebook-two-factor-authentication/2011/06/17
    MAY BE U USE MOBILE BROWSER LIKE OPERA MINI,UC BROWSRER ETC SO THEY HAVE DIFFERENT IP ADDRESS RELATED  TO THEIR SERVER SO THERE ARE DIFF. IP ADDRESS

    If you are concerned, change your password, and make sure you enable

    Login notifications When an unrecognised computer or device tries to access my account:
    Send me an email

    That way, if someone does log on, you will know if it's been hacked. But there are still are ways around that like session hijacking, especially if you use public wifi hotspots.

    Hi Vanshika,

    Yes, Facebook uses "GeoData" to locate you, this is often based on where your ISP headquarters is located. Other times it's just a rough guess. There are a few things you can do to raise your security on Facebook though. You can optionally enable device recognition in your account settings -> security to force anyone who logs in to identify which system their using.
