    Somehow someone is changing my facebook password without ever logging into the account. No matter what email I have on the account they seem to be able to change it. I also have text approvals turned on so they are somehow doing this without ever getting the text security code. Would you guys happen to have any ideas?

    Check your computer for keyloggers and malware, implement a stronger password for your account.

    Xhange password, change all security answers, scan you PC for malware (and in fact change all your FB details from different PC). And not sure how FB works with api access etc but make sure no other access to your account via any other means...

    change your password using another device/ computer
    go to " settings - apps " and check for apps you have their, and revoke access / delete anything suspicious .. they might be using your access token.

    your computer is compromised and they are using a stealer to catch email passwords and or keylogging too
    as long as the malware is not removed they will keep catching your logins and they could do the login process from your pc by silent remote control so no other logins would be detected anyway

    like the other poster said revoke all apps too

    - short term solution is to use a new email new laptop pc - very strong pass and only use that new lappy to login - make sure the recovery email is not set to any old emails
    longterm solution - catch malware

    I don't really think that's possible? You should e-mail Facebook support about this and see what is wrong. It sounds like a bug or something, no one should be able to change your password if you have text approvals turned on.

    Most probably this should be the keylogger or malware on your computer that is stealing the password. Run a antivirus and then see how it goes.
