Facebook says 'configuration change' caused some users to be logged out unexpectedly

Logged out of Facebook iOS app unexpectedly? You’re not alone

Thankfully, I can still log into my Facebook account.

Which is the most preferable Messaging app?

Many users took to Twitter to express their frustration and confusion. While majority had to log back in, some with two factor authentication (2FA) faced failed sessions and delay in login process as the SMS codes arrived late.

According to Downdetector, the service that measures outage in internet services, at least 4,800 users in the United States have reported login issues.

A Facebook company spokesperson said in an email to The Verge, which read, "On January 22, a configuration change caused some people to be logged out of their Facebook accounts".


Reconnecting to the platform wasn't straight-forward either, as those who had two-factor-authentication set up had to wait for a while before the SMS codes arrived on their devices.

On the other hand, Facebook's Technology Communications Manager Alexandru Voica also acknowledged the issue faced by the users.

Even Facebook itself jumped on the bandwagon, so now the joke is LAME. 6 hours later, Facebook had tweeted that the issue was caused by a "configuration change" but without providing further explanation.

If your Facebook account has been logged out on your iPhone, then just re-login into your account using credentials. Another suggestion was to go into Facebook messenger and turn off the code generator.
