Facebook account temporarily locked

Hello, Yesterday my friend has logged into his facebook account from my BB-8520 curve. Later on when I tried to sign in to my account, it reads your facebook account has been temporarily locked. Then I tried it from PC, it asked me to change my password and I did it. Today I tried again to logged into my Facebook account from my blackberry with the new password. The same message it shows: 'Your facebook account has been locked temporarily.' Can anyone please let me know the solution ?

The issue you are facing is as a result of the IP you are using in accessing your fb account. If fb notices a new IP accessing your account, they might temporarily lock your account pending when you verify it. If you'd like to know more on this case study
