Enabling one time password for your Facebook security gives you an edge over your security level. Although the authentication did not operate much like the one for Google 2 Step Verification, but Facebook has its own use for the 2nd step verification.
By enabling the one time password for your Facebook security, you get to enforce it when you log in from any new device apart from the current computer that you are using. This means that if someone happened to compromise your account, he or she might still need your OTP in order to be able to log in from their own devices.
Below are the steps to enable your mobile to receive one time password generated from Facebook. Do remember that those generated password will only last you for 20 minutes. After that it will be expired and you will not be able to log in anymore with that password.
