Facebook is one of the most popular social media sites that exists.

Not only does it allow you to connect with people around the world but it also lets you play games, network with colleagues, set up a business profile, and even make money.


It is a platform with a wide variety of uses and benefits. No wonder it is so popular.

Given that we spend a lot of time on Facebook doing a number of different things, there is nothing more frustrating than being automatically logged out when you are in the middle of something.

Getting Logged Out

You might be in the middle of a game or chatting with a friend when all of a sudden you are logged out.

There are many potential causes for this. Fortunately, many of these issues can be resolved almost immediately.

Let’s work through some of the most common reasons for Facebook logging you out.

Potential Reasons Why You Keep Getting Logged Out

Cookies: Your internet browser uses cookies to track sites you visit. Sometimes your settings might be set up to automatically end your session after a certain period of time.

Try checking your particular cookie settings for the browser you are using. Try changing your session time.

More Than One Person Logged On

Someone might be trying to log into your Facebook account. Facebook does not allow more than one person to be logged into an account simultaneously on multiple devices.

If it is happening continuously within a short period of time, it might be a good idea to change your password.

Time Limit

Facebook has a time limit from when you log in. If you click Remember Me when you log in, the problem should be solved.

Facebook Auto Login

When you log in you are given the option to allow the site to automatically log you on when you arrive at the website. Make sure this box is ticked.

Cache: Try clearing your browser cache as it may be blocked.

Malware: Your computer could be infected with malware or a virus. This is something you should consider checking if it is a regular occurrence.

Facebook Apps: Log back into your account (try a different browser if you need to.) Navigate to your Account Settings and select Apps. Browse the list for an app called Skype.

For some reason, this is a common cause of this issue. If you find Skype on the list simply delete it.

System Glitch: Remember, it could just be a temporary glitch in the Facebook system and therefore a temporary problem.
iPad, iPhone, or Smartphone Devices
