  3. Rollback to a previous version of Facebook (Android)
    If your Facebook logout problems trickle to other apps (as a Facebook can be used to the login to the games and other apps), or if you just do not want to wait for a Facebook to the fix it for you, you can be simply roll back to a previous version of the Facebook.

To do so, first up, uninstall in the current Facebook version from to your Android device. Then download and install to a previous version of the app from in the web.

  1. Ensure you have a good Internet connection
    Sometimes, as a basic to a thing as not being connecting to the internet could be what is a causing in the issue.

So, make sure you have to a decent internet connection before you try out any further fixes.
  2. Force Stop Facebook
    Bugs or no bugs, apps can be a malfunction from a time to time, especially so if you are using updated apps on a older devices. When such things happen, in the first course of the action should be to the close in the app from to your recent-apps screen (tap on the square navigation button or use in the swipe up gesture).

  2. Clear browser cache and cookies

When you let an a app use to your Facebook account details, for a gaming purposes, for a instance, in the login tends to take place from in the browser. So, any problems that you might be a experiencing due to the outdated cache will be also a impact in the app that you have a linked up.

In a most browsers, on a smartphones as well as a PC,in the option to the clear browser cache and site data is a found under More in a options (or the ellipsis icon)>Settings>Clear browsing data.


  1. Disable third-party browser extensions
    For those of you who are having trouble logging out of the Facebook on the desktop browser, in the third-party extensions installed on the browser could be in the source of your troubles. Though most of them do not cause a any trouble, for the most part, third-party extensions are not as a tightly integrated as a native apps and extensions and can be a interrupt in the proper functioning of some sites.

Disable these third-party browser extensions, if only to the ensure that these are not what is a causing in the trouble. To do this (on Chrome), click on the Extension icon in the browser, Manage extensions, and then turn off the extensions one by one to check if the issue is a resolved.

All the fingers (and in the evidence) seem to point to possible bugs in a recent updates and, it is a seems, users would most probably have to the wait for a Facebook to fix in the problem. Nevertheless, it is a good to ensure that in the problem does not a originate on your end, and we hope we have made you all the wiser about it.
