FB Authentication Failed / Cannot Access Account

Problem description:
Facebook authentication failed – I cannot log into my account via FB login.

When I try to create new account using the same email address, I get a brand new account rather than my existing account (no code or progress saved, no repls, etc.).

Expected behavior:
To access my existing account via FB login.

Actual behavior:
Error message: “Authentication failed, please try again”

Steps to reproduce:
I cleared my cache and all login information and attempted several times across different devices. Same message.

Bug appears at this link:

Chrome / Windows 10 / Desktop. Same issue with iOS 16 on iPhone.

Hello. I’m sorry, but I think Bug-Reports is only for Replit Bug-Reports.

This is Replit ask forum not FB ask forum

Thank you, I have moved the topic to Replit help

The issue is with Replit login via FB auth :slight_smile:

Did you check that you signed in the correct Facebook account? Try checking spam in your inbox and were you signed into the correct email?

Thanks for your response! Yes it is the correct FB account and correct login-- it logs me into the FB account but somehow the redirect on Replit leads to the error message-- perhaps there is an error in the redirect?

I went into FB third party app authorizations and Replit is listed as “active”. However, I never shared my email address so that’s probably why the reset PW didn’t work. (I also checked spam).

Check your internet connection and firewall. Sometimes it just glitches out because of some security issue.

Just reset your wifi or computer. That should probably fix the issue.

Thanks-- I have already tried on 2 laptops, 2 separate wifi connections, and a cell phone using cellular data. I cleared the cache and login information and tried again – still same issue regardless of connection. I previously had no issue on the primary device I was logged into.

Hmm… try contacting Replit or Facebook support to see what they can do on their end, since you can’t do anything on your end.
