To avoid this, turn on secure browsing feature. To do this go to Account Setting >> Security >> Edit the Secure Browsing to Enable

Only matched PIN will allows to access the account. If someone else tries to log into your Facebook account on an "unrecognized" device, they’ll get form to enter a secret PIN number so no code, no entry.

5. Use strong password
Use characters, letters, numbers, and symbols to make strong password. Avoid using easy-to-guess words or some information that about you (like your birth date, pet name, wife name, etc)
