social networking site.

The feature, to be added to the account setting page gradually, is aimed at helping users to see if they are logged in on other devices and then log out.

The tool will also enable users to see if any authorised person has accessed their account, shut it down, and reset their password.

Facebook has promised more security improvements over the coming weeks, according to US reports.

As cybercriminals step up attacks on Facebook users, the social networking site has become increasingly concerned with security.

In May, Facebook added new security tools to prevent hacking and held a staff meeting amid a growing storm about privacy at the social networking company.

The new security features included e-mail alerts being sent if anyone tries to access a member's account using a device that is not on a list specified by the account holder.
