Facebook keeps disconnecting me: what to do?

Facebook has been around for over a decade and it’s hard to remember the world before. Everyone is so used to connecting through Facebook; is the main search tool to find someone today.

Everyone is so used to having Facebook at their fingertips that most people don’t even bother to log out. But Facebook sometimes logs you out on its own.

When this happens, you may be wondering why Facebook did that. There are a few answers to this question, and we’ll go over them in this article.

Cookies

If you’re using Facebook on your computer, you might get unexpectedly disconnected from time to time. That can be quite annoying, right? It may have something to do with the cookies your browser uses to track the sites you visit. It may be that your settings are automatically set to end your session after a certain period. Go ahead and check the cookie settings for the browser you are using.

Compared to some other apps (like the ones you use for your bank account), Facebook has a considerably longer active session time. However, Facebook sessions also expire. Also, clearing cache and cookies might help you fix this problem.

Facebook auto login

Automatic login is one of the most useful tools that a user can have on the Internet. Entering all of your email and password information each time may be a more secure route, but it’s also more time-consuming and tedious. If you’re the only person using your laptop, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t opt ​​for automatic login.

The same applies to Facebook. When you sign in, you have the option to allow the site to automatically sign you in when you return. If you do not select this option, you will be logged out after leaving the site.

More than one person is logged in

Although it doesn’t happen often, if someone else tries to access your Facebook account while you’re actively using it, they can be kicked out of that session. Especially if that someone is using a different IP address.

Maybe your best friend who isn’t on Facebook has your password and is logged in at the same time. Or someone is trying to hack your account. If the latter is the case, now is a good time to do something about it.

Go to the Facebook settings page, and under Security and login, you can choose to change your passwords and select to receive alerts for unrecognized logins. You can also use the option to have three to five friends as contacts in case you are unlucky enough to lose access to your account. It is advisable to take extra precautions when it comes to Facebook and the security of your data.

Don’t forget that Facebook has over 2.4 billion active users. It is likely to have bugs and glitches from time to time. You may have logged out because the site is undergoing maintenance or experiencing other issues.

If Facebook continues to log you out, even after making sure you’ve cleared your cookies and cache and no one else is trying to log in, you should try simply logging out and waiting a while. After some time, try logging in again and see if the problem persists.

If you’ve exhausted all options and still can’t use Facebook without constantly getting banned, you can always contact Facebook directly. To go Facebook Help Center, select the issue you are experiencing from the dropdown menu and proceed to describe the issue in detail. All you have to do is submit the form and wait for them to contact you.

Log out whenever you want

You should be able to log out when you want and not when someone or something else decides to log you out. It’s probably smart and healthy to log out of all your social media apps from time to time. But, you must do it on your terms, of course.

The most important part is making sure no one tries to gain unauthorized access. Everything else can be fixed. Clear your cookies and cache and go ahead and use automatic login if convenient.

Frequent questions

Can I sign in on more than one device at a time?

Yes. Facebook will allow you to sign in on multiple devices and stay signed in to those devices at the same time. The way the service works is that you have to be logged into the app, on each web browser and on each device. That said, you can log in to multiple devices and browsers from multiple locations without Facebook logging you out of any of the devices.

How can I tell if someone else is logging into my Facebook account?

In fact, we have an article that explains how to tell if someone else is logging into your account and how can you stop it. If you suspect someone is signing in because you have new friends you don’t know, your Facebook Messenger app has messages you didn’t send, or you can’t sign in with your password, someone is probably accessing your account.

If Facebook randomly logs you out, it’s a good idea to change your password. Also, as an added precaution, you should also change your email password. If someone logs into your Facebook account with two-factor authentication enabled, they may have also gained access to your email account.
