Facebook Code Generator is a built-in feature in the Android Facebook app. Code Generator automatically generates a unique security code in every 30 seconds. The generated code is unique to the Facebook ID that is used to sign-in to the account using the app.
Code Generator has been integrated in the app in order to enhance the security of Facebook profiles by prohibiting users to log on to the accounts using any new device in the absence of the unique code.
While signing in to your Facebook account from any new device, Facebook asks for the unique code. At your end, you must check for the unique code generated by the Code Generator, and type it in the available field. Make sure you do this within the 30 seconds after the code is generated. If you fail to do so, you will have to type the new code generated by the Code Generator.
