  7. I have the same issue with not being able to disable login notifications. I can currently only log in on my the facebook app on my cell. facebook no longer recognizes any of the computers i once logged in on. On top of all of this my cell phone service is disconnected and I have resorted to a txting app. I can not email facebook from my app. i dont know what to do. Its very annoying. I wish I never set the stupid login notifications to begin with. Facebook really needs to add a feature to disable this from the app.
