I can only assume this was due to having all the shield settings enabled, as I was doing nothing at all strange other than browsing one specific company’s page (I normally don’t use FB at all unless I absolutely have to). I was suddenly presented with a dialog saying I’d been logged out for suspicious activity, at which time they required me to upload a decently high-res picture including my face, which they now say they will review and then delete once they have confirmed… I’m not sure exactly what because how would they even know that picture was me?

Anyway, very weird and extremely irritating, and I assume it’s because I was browsing in Brave which I have not done before (due to how rarely I use FB).
