Facebook continues to be the biggest social media platform, with over 2 billion active monthly users. Since its launch in 2004, Facebook has developed not just in size but also in functionality, with features that have radically changed how we interact online. Oftentimes, users complain of being regularly logged out of their Facebook account while using the website. Today, we show you how to fix the “Facebook keeps logging me out” issue.
Clear cache and cookies
A cache is a temporary location to store frequently used information while visiting a website. Cookies, on the other hand, hold the login credentials that allow you entry into your account. Cookies are also responsible for timing out the session when you’re visiting a website. Even Facebook has a session limit, after which you get logged out of your account.
In order to clear cache and cookies on your web browser, go to Settings>Privacy and Security>Clear browsing data. Select cache and cookies and clear them.
Someone else is using your account
It is quite possible someone else is using your account. If your account is logged in on two devices, logging out of one will automatically log you out of the other one. You can fix this by changing your Facebook password so only you have the login credentials to your account. Go to Facebook Settings>Security and Login>Change Password.
Remove third-party access
If you’ve linked your Facebook account to any third-party apps, it is possible that they may be responsible for logging you out of your account.
Go to Facebook Settings>Apps and Websites. Remove access to all the third-party apps. Hopefully, this will fix the issue at hand.
Facebook Auto Login
While logging in to your Facebook account, click on the ‘Remember Me’ icon. It will automatically log you in whenever you open Facebook on your browser. This should only be done when you’re the only one that uses the device.
Following these instructions will cover everything when it comes to this particular issue. If you’re using Facebook on your smartphone, you can try clearing app cache and cookies from your phone settings. If the problem persists, delete the Facebook app and reinstall it. If you’re still getting logged out, try rebooting your phone.
