Now with the latest update in the Facebook Official App itself , You can Login with multiple accounts. But each time you try to switch between accounts it will ask you for a 4 digit pin which you will set prior when adding the account.
So, How to Use 2 Facebook Accounts in Facebook Full App itself?
First things first, Login with one account normally. While logging in the app will prompt you to enter a 4 digit pin. Give a 4 digit pin there. It’s like a passcode. If it didn’t don’t worry. I’ll guide you.
Once you successfully logged in, Now from the settings > tap on LOGOUT.
This will take you to login screen and here again you’ll find a link to add a 4 digit pin. Now add a pin to that account.
The reason why we are adding this pin is, so that we can easily swap between accounts by just entering the pin instead of entering your complete password everytime.
Now if you’re logged in, logout and you will see an option to login with another account. Use that link to login with the other account and add a 4 digit pin to that account too.
