Facebook woes

[ Edited ]

I created a security option on my Facebook that I would receive a text whenever I signed into Facebook on a different computer. I forgot to turn off this security feature before I cancelled my mobile phone and moved back to the states. Is there a way to be sent the code that is being text to that number so I can unlock my Facebook and take off that security feature? My number with o2 was (edited personal information). Help is soo needed here!

You can remove the phone number from the site or edit your settings to deactivate the option you created on your desktop version. If none of that works email facebook
