Facebook Android App Logged Me Out Problem And Solution


Android Facebook Messenger App Automatic Logout Problem, Error

It was Friday evening. After buying new Asus Zenfone 5, I was busy in experimenting with my new Android buddy. After doing system updates and restarting, I suddenly found that I was automatically logged out of the Facebook Android App & Facebook Messenger. I wondered how it could have happened. First, I thought, its because of clean master (my favourite mobile cleaner). Since I’ve pretty bad habit of running clean master after interval of few minutes, I thought that must be the reason :p. But I was wrong.

Firstly, its not because of the CleanMaster or any other cleaning app, I neither changed my password, the facebook was working fine. But this issue mostly arises due to wrong memory management of the Facebook Android App itself.

Facebook Android App and Messenger Automatic Logout Reason

The reason lies of facebook app logout problem is in moving the official Facebook app for Android to the external storage. If you’ve inserted an external SD card of any capacity and moved your Facebook app there, then it may give you problems like automatic logout. Or If you reopen the app after some time then you may have to re-login again. Since some Facbook Code is made only to work while app lies in internal storage. They have solved this problem in later versions.

  1. I’m having a different problem. If I look at Facebook for a little while then close the app, when I try to go back in, it’s starts to flash an all white screen and then the Facebook logo screen repeatedly. This is every time. I have to uninstall and reinstall if I want to look at facebook . Can you help me this is annoying!!! James

  2. Nope, still happen.
    It just logged me out randomly , about once or twice every month. Sometimes it doesn’t happen…
    My guess is its updating, so it logged me out… or something happens to the “link” between my ID and FB that got disconnected for some reason.
