Suppose you were startled by this warning, or at least became more vigilant, then let us explain why the system has now arrived in our country.
What is Facebook protection?
Certain people, such as candidates, elected representatives and political campaigns, can be targets of malicious individuals on social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. Accounts facing more threats during the election period may need additional protection. So, says Meta, Facebook Protection Program Created.
Thus, the accounts participating in the program will receive assistance from the company to adopt stronger security measures, such as Two-factor authentication and monitoring for potential intrusion threats.
To ensure the security of Pages, all administrators of shared Pages must have permission to post on them. This also applies to individual Page Administrators who have opted out of the Program. Authorization to post on a page requires that the people who manage these pages secure their account with two-factor authentication and confirm the country of the primary site.
Additionally, it requires Page admins to run the Page with a real-name profile, which is the only individual profile on the platform.

In this sense, this program is one of the many measures that are taken to prevent accounts from being harmed.
