Facebook continues to be the most popular social media platform. Millions of users use the Facebook app to remain in contact with their virtual pals and publish updates. However, if Facebook keeps locking you out while you’re attempting to make an update or a remark, it might be aggravating.
We spend so much time on Facebook that we are certain to run into such a problem. You may use the methods in this post to diagnose and solve Facebook logging you out as a security measure or due to an app malfunction.
1. CLEAR CACHE AND COOKIES
Most websites these days will not function unless you have cookies enabled in your browser. This cache and cookies data can build up over time and cause issues, such as the Facebook app unexpectedly locking you out. Clearing the cache and cookies typically helps with strange oddities like this. This is how you do it.
Step 1: To rapidly activate the Clear browsing data menu in Chrome or Edge, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete on your keyboard.
Step 2: Select All time from the list under the Basic tab’s drop-down menu next to Time range. Mark the ‘Cookies and other site data’ and ‘Cached images and files’ checks.
Lastly, click on the Clear data button.
2. CHANGE FACEBOOK PASSWORD
The issue can also occur if your Facebook account password is compromised. Someone else may also be trying to use the same account, which is why Facebook keeps logging you out. When that happens, Facebook recommends you change your account password immediately. Here’s how.
Login to your Facebook account on a web browser and navigate to Facebook’s Settings page. Click on Security & Login from the left pane. Under the Login section on your right, click on the Change Password option.
To avoid such events in the future, you can try securing your Facebook account with two-factor authentication.
3. USE FACEBOOK AUTO LOGIN
Almost many websites provide auto-login as a convenient function. When enabled, it saves you time by not requiring you to input your login credentials each time you access your account. It’s not the safest way while using a shared computer, but if you’re the only one using the computer, you may use it to prevent Facebook from logging you out.
4. REMOVE THIRD-PARTY ACCESS
Have you lately connected your Facebook account to a third-party app? If that’s the case, it’s conceivable that those applications are causing Facebook to log you out.
Log in to your Facebook account using a web browser to disable access to these third-party applications. Then navigate to the Apps and Websites tab in Settings. To disable access to certain applications, click the Remove button next to them.
5. DISABLE EXTENSIONS
Apart from eliminating third-party access, the problem might also develop if you’ve lately installed any new third-party extensions on your browser. You can temporarily disable or remove them to see if it resolves the problem.
Type chrome:/extensions/ and press Enter to delete extensions from Chrome. Find any questionable or no longer used extensions and click the Remove option to get rid of them.
In Microsoft Edge, click on the three-dot menu in the top-right corner, and go to Extensions to disable extensions.
6. DELETE APP CACHE (ANDROID)
If you’re facing this particular issue in Facebook’s mobile app, then it might be due to a corrupted app cache. And clearing it might be a good idea. Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Launch the Settings app on your phone. Go to Apps and notifications. Look for the Facebook app on the list.
Step 2: Go to Storage and cache. Lastly, tap on the Clear cache button.
7. UPDATE OR REINSTALL THE APP
Such troubles can also occur if you’re using an old or defective version of the Facebook app. In such cases, updating the app typically helps. Visit the Play Store or the App Store to update the app.
Alternatively, you can reinstall the Facebook app if it has any damaged data on your phone. This will clear all of the app’s data (including cache) and update the app.
BACK TO SCROLLING FEED
Facebook has come a long way from being simply another social media site in recent years. And, for better or worse, leaving Facebook has become nearly impossible.
For the time being, we hope that the preceding alternatives have assisted you in resolving your login issues.
