US – Around 7 pm last night you may have been logged out of Facebook, but you were not alone.
Many Facebook users reported to Downdetector last night that they had to relog into Facebook some while in session.
Facebook automatically posted, “
“working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible” but didn’t specify what caused the unexpected logouts.

Facebook posted a statement on Saturday that due to a “configuration change.” Further details on what caused the issue are still limited at this time.
Heard it was a “configuration change” and is now resolved. 👏👏👏 to the engineers who fixed the issue and patiently tried to explain what that means to us to no avail.Posted by Facebook App on Saturday, January 23, 2021
