Facebook Login Problems – When You Can’t Login To Facebook ?

There are situations when you have faced Facebook login problems. The login page appears, you type in the username and password of your Facebook account and hit the “Sign In” button. After that, the page turns white and loads forever.

You are either not able to access the Facebook login page, or the Facebook homepage never loads completely. What should you do in such situations?

Here is a step by step guide which will solve Facebook login problems on your side and you can rest assured that you can log in to your Facebook account and communicate with friends, chat with your Facebook contacts.

Check Whether Facebook is Down For Everyone or Just You

Go to Downforeveryoneorjustme.com and enter Facebook.com in the text box. Using this site, you will be able to know whether Facebook.com is down for everyone else or is it just you who is unable to access the Facebook login page.

Facebook Down Or Not? Check Facebook.com availability

If it’s shown that Facebook.com is down for everyone, there is nothing you can do here. Maybe the developers are updating something, or Facebook servers are on scheduled maintenance. Wait for some time till the updates are rolled out and try again after half an hour or so.

If it’s shown that Facebook.com is down for only you while everyone else can use Facebook regularly, you have to check your computer’s network preferences, Firewall, and Windows’s host file.

Check Your Computer’s Host File Or Parental Controls

The Host file of Windows can be used to block specific websites from opening in your computer. If you share your computer with other family members, colleagues, or friends, the chances are that some of them are playing pranks or tricks with you. It might occur that one of the shared users has intentionally blocked the Facebook.com login page using Windows host file or Windows 7 Parental controls.

Open Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. Double click the “Hosts” file and open it with Notepad. You will see something like the following:

Check if Facebook is Blocked from Windows Host file
If you find an entry, as shown below, you will not be able to access the Facebook login page. Delete the above lines, save the hosts file and refresh the Facebook login page to see whether you can get through.

If you are trying to open the Facebook login page from office or corporate network connection, the chances are that the office administration has already blocked access to Facebook. In that case, you may like to read our earlier tutorial on how to open Facebook.com when it’s blocked?

Other Troubles With Facebook Login page

There can be other problems which you might be facing regarding Facebook login. For example: I don’t remember which email address I used to Login to Facebook ?

If you have registered a username on Facebook, try logging in using the username and the password. If you don’t remember your Facebook username, ask any of your trusted friends to find the email address associated with your Facebook profile. It can be achieved if your friends browse to your Facebook profile page and switch to the “Info” tab.

The Facebook Help center has a detailed list of questions and answers related to problems faced with the Facebook login page. Check out the help center topic here.

In case you didn’t log into your account for a long time and you forgot the password, you can reset it by following this tutorial. Before getting started, you must know the email ID or phone number associated with your Facebook account. Otherwise, it is quite a difficult task to get back your account safely.

To get started, you need to visit the official website of Facebook. By default, it asks you to enter your username/Email/Phone and password so that you can check out messages, notifications, timeline, etc. As you forgot the password, you need to click the “Forgotten account?” button that is visible under the “Password” box.

After that, you need to enter the assigned phone number or email address in the box. Although the box asks to enter the mobile number, you can write down the email ID as well. After doing that, click the “Search” button.

Facebook Login Problems

If Facebook finds your account, you can see it on the next screen. On the right-hand side, there should be your name and profile picture. On the left-hand side, you can see a method to reset the password. Facebook can send an OTP to your email or phone number. However, the phone number should be visible only if you added one to your account and enabled it for the use of the security of your account. Otherwise, you can always take the help of an email. Now, click the “Continue” button visible on your screen.

Facebook Login Problems

After that, check your email for a new mail that came from Facebook that contains an OTP. You need to copy that OTP and enter it on the Facebook website. After entering, you can enter your new password. For your information, you need to enter the same password twice.

That’s all! Now you have got rid of Facebook login problems.

    I have been blocked for about 6 months now and I don’t really know why. I do know that my e-mail address has been used by numerous other people. I do know that I am on the black web. I do know that I have filled out every form I could find only to have no response or unable to send. I do know that I need FB to keep in touch with family and friends. And I do know that I have tried to change password but it doesn’t work. Thank you

  35. Mano says:

    Yes, facebook, instagram and whole Meta programs make a lot of problems when it came to solve any user problem :) taking into account my experience just try the third part solution, like unofficial facebook helps like fbhelp.carrd.co they will not take any your personal data, and they help you, send you all information, about where to write and to who, and how to do it. Just give them a try.

  36. Hoolins says:

    Most of the problem come from using a VPN? After making a few similar mistakes, I’ve decided to run each of my accounts on a separate browser. It really helps! Also, don’t use VPN with Facebook because they might instantly think you’re a bot or spammer.

    Have you tried contacting Facebook’s helpdesk? What did they say to you? A while ago, I had a similar problem with my accounts, and Mark from fbhelp.carrd.co was able to help me out. You could give him a try since it’s free and he’s really helpful.
