Facebook announced the test of a new tool, Security Checkup, which allows users to change their passwords, activate login alerts and clean up login sessions.

Site integrity product manager Melissa Luu-Van offered more details in a note on the Facebook Security page:

Today, we are starting to test a new tool that quickly guides you through a few of the options that anyone can access on their security settings page. If you see the test, you will be able to change your password, turn on login alerts, and clean up login sessions simply by clicking through the screen prompts. Based on feedback, we hope to make Security Checkup available more broadly and whenever you want to use it.
