What is a notification?

Notification is a message which is sent and received when some event occurs.  For example if you have activated Facebook login notification then whenever you log into Facebook using different device or browser then you will receive a notification message in your Facebook account or the primary email account which you use to log into your Facebook account.

This is helpful because if your account is hacked and someone logs into it using different computer then you get a notification. You can then change your Facebook login password.
