Facebook won't use iPhone settings account? A fix.

After a Facebook password change, especially if it forces logout from other devices, you may find that on iOS no longer reads authentication information gfrom the iOS Settings:Facebook configuration.

You can always enter your username and password in, but that’s not very elegant.

Here’s how to get to use the account you defined in Settings:Facebook.

  1. Ensure is installed but not running.
  2. In Settings:Facebook completely delete existing account. It doesn’t work to enter the new password there, Facebook still won’t “see” the authentication information.
  3. Recreate accounts in Settings:Facebook.
  4. Launch it should show the name of the account in Settings:Facebook and you can use that.
