I think the question was: Are you ALSO logged into facebook using a mobile device, like a phone, or a 3G tablet? If you had followed the link provided, I think you'd have understood that.

No need to get all snarky.

I think you came to the forum because you didn't ask Facebook about a Facebook issue. Am I right?

I'm not logged on from any mobile devices or anything, I cleared all my activity and logged myself back in through Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, the 2 browsers installed on my laptop and still no luck with it

Okay...does it show that you're currently logged in at multiple places, or that you have logged in from those places in the last month? It won't matter which browsers you use, so don't worry about which one you're currently using.

Sorry, but I don't use "Farcebook", so I'm just imagining the scenario.

And, BTW, GO GOOGLE+. (Heh.... shameful plug.)

...does not what?

If it does not show you logged in CURRENTLY from those locations, then any time you may have accessed FB from a phone or 3G Tablet might have created those entries. (I say 3G tablet, because they use the cell network to log in, whereas a wifi tablet would only show up at your current location and IP address.)

If it only shows your CURRENT logins, then there's a good possibility that someone else is using your FB sign-in.

Still sounds like you have been hijacked
Can you try logging in on another computer ? Not from home
See where it shows you are from, if it still says NJ then change the password again and log out immediately afterwards. Close the browser, clear the browsers cache, then log back in

If you log in this outside computer and you do not see NJ it seems your computer has spyware in it, then you need to download Malwarebytes at Malwarebytes.org, install it and do a full scan and see what it finds
