Facebook users are being dumped out of their accounts and unable to sign back in. The login issue appears to have started at around 9AM PT, with thousands of Facebook users rushing to other social media sites to complain about the outage.
Judging by outrage report websites, it seems as though the main victims of the login error are based in Europe, although there are some spikes in India and parts of North America.
It’s not clear what the actual problem is at this stage, but it all starts with being automatically signed out of Facebook when you visit the social media site or use the Facebook app.
Several Android Authority staff members with Facebook accounts managed to replicate the problem and were unable to get back into their accounts — instead being met with a “Page is unavailable” message.
Other Facebook users posting on Twitter have noted that attempting to reset their password using a code but were still unable to login after the reset.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for a fix, but in the meantime you might want to check your account to see if you’re affected.
