I'm very confident for my account on Google, Dropbox, and Lastpass when they allow me to log in using two factors

  1. the username+password
  2. the Google Authenticator's code generated from my smart phone.

I would love to have the same security protection for my Facebook account.

How can I get Google Authenticator code when signing in facebook.com?

Link only answers aren't good answers. If the link dies the answer becomes useless. Please include the relevant parts of the link in the actual answer itself. – ChrisF Oct 26 '13 at 14:18
While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. – Al E. Oct 26 '13 at 14:25

Facebook offers this sort of thing already via text message. https://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150172618258920

Thanks! I found it supported by Code Genertor too – Nam G VU Jul 14 '13 at 18:28

You can use Google Authenticator as well. The "set up another way.." option from Security settings in Facebook generates a QR code which can be imported into Authenticator

They support it as described here

I quote the solution as below. The 3rd one is the code generator similar to Google Authenticator.

Indeed we can use Google Authenticator to get this code ^^, as @Sathya has mentioned in his answer.

If you've turned on login approvals, there are 3 different ways you can collect your login code:

  1. We'll send you a text (SMS) message with a login code each time you need one

  2. You can get 10 codes to have when you need them

  3. You can activate our Code Generator (if you have the Facebook app on your smartphone) or use another app that generates codes
