Here is the statement from Facebook that gives more idea on what is facebook protect

We know that certain people such as candidates, their campaigns and elected officials can be targeted by bad actors on social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. Accounts that face additional threats during an election cycle may need additional protection, that’s why we created a programme called Facebook Protect.By enrolling, we’ll help these accounts adopt stronger account security protections, like two-factor authentication and monitor for potential hacking threats.All Page admins of enrolled Pages will be required to go through Page publishing authorisation to ensure the security of the Page, regardless of whether or not individual Page admins choose to enrol in this programme. Page publishing authorisation asks people who manage these Pages to secure their accounts with two-factor authentication and confirm their primary country locations. In addition, it requires Page admins to manage their Page from a real-name Profile that is the individual’s only profile on the platform.We are constantly looking for ways to stay one step ahead of bad actors. While we may never be able to catch every bad actor, this programme is one of several steps we’re taking to make it harder for account compromises to occur.
