While it's a good idea to help with fraud prevention, it wasn't geared toward the user experience. Like many people, I access Facebook from several mediums: phone, work computer, iPad, home computer, and every time I would log in through a different medium, I would get an authentication message. Honestly, it just got to the point where it was more of a nuissance than helping me with security, so I disabled this setting. Currently, I think users should be more aware of Firesheep.
