I'm using facebook with pidgin messenger, and each time I log-in facebook sends me an sms telling me that an unrecognised device connected to my facebook acoount. I can use it, there's no error on pidgin, but I keep receiving that annoying sms. I don't want to disable this feature on facebook, I just want to add pidgin to the recognised devices.

Did the SMS messages contain a number to use as a password? Not always, they sometimes do. Newer pidgin versions may have problems - What version of pidgin are you using? –  Wilf Dec 2 '13 at 17:36
I'm using Pidgin 2.10.7. And no, I never got any password. "Your Facebook account was accessed by Facebook Chat at 19:21. Log in for more info." That's all the sms is saying. –  NightFall Dec 2 '13 at 17:45
Turning on the 'login notification' emails sometimes helps... Another thing of course would be to remove your phone number. –  Wilf Dec 2 '13 at 18:23
I know that I can turn it off, but I would have preferred to keep the notification on and just add pidgin to the recognise devices list. Thanks a lot for your time. –  NightFall Dec 2 '13 at 22:10
