Facebook sending SMS messages about unathorized access?

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I am receiving text messages from the number 32665 that say the following:

"my phone" logged into your Facebook account (Today at 7:00am). If this wasn't authorized, check your email for instructions.

Of course there are no further details in e-mail.

I have had Facebook on my phone for roughly a month or two, but just started received these text messages in the last couple of days. I changed my password just in case, but am still receiving these messages.

Are they legit? What's going on?
