    So, I downloaded the APK but I’m still uncertain how to sign in with multiple accounts. Is there a way to split the two accounts within one app? Or, do you log-in with one account using Lite and a second account with the full Facebook app? This only allows a person to use 2 accounts, but it’s still better than 1!

    • says

      Hello Christi, You can Login with one account in Facebook Lite and second account in Facebook app ,
      Or
      In Facebook App itself (Latest versions Only) , You can use 2 accounts, but you have to logout and login each and every time while switching (Not that tough). Facebook Made it easy to switch, You don’t have to enter your login details everytime you switch between accounts. You just have to select the account and enter a 4 digit pin (which you will enter while switching the first time). Hope this helps.

        I manage an a/c of a friend as well. The login for that is different from my personal a/c. But my android phone says I cannot use multiple logins for facebook from mobile even if I used Fast for FB which I downloaded from playstore and in its technical details it had said it can manage multiple a/cs. What needs to be done then?

          Hello Tina,
          You don’t need any 3rd party app for using 2 Facebook accounts. Facebook App itself has the option to support 2 facebook accounts.
          Follow these steps:
          1. Install/ Update the Facebook App in Your android Mobile.
          2. Sign in with your personal A/c.
          3. After successful signing in you will be asked that if you’d like to add another account or not. add your friend’s account at that time. If No such prompt comes. Just click on logout from the settings and you will be definitely given the option there to add another facebook account.

          If all the above fails.
          Then this will surely help you to manage 2 facebook accounts on your android mobile.

          Install facebook app and also facebook lite.
          Sign into one account on facebook app
          and sign into other(your friend’s) account in facebook lite app.

        Hi Uday,

        “You just have to select the account and enter a 4 digit pin (which you will enter while switching the first time). Hope this helps.”
        This Option has disappeared when I have cleared data for this app, and now it is no- longer giving me the option. I have re-installed the app as well.

        Not sure how to reset the 4 digit pin

      Just Delete your facebook accounts and if you don’t login for the next 3 months , your accounts will be permanently deleted from facebook. Be sure you backup all your data from facebook before you do that.

  4. David says

    I downloaded the newest Facebook app on my Android. I was able to make a PIN for logging into another account. However, when I click log out it doesn’t log out and just reloads the account I was in. I end up having to restart the phone.

    Can I just say what a comfort to find somebody that genuinely knows what they are discussing on the
    web. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it
    important. A lot more people have to check this out and
    understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular
    since you most certainly possess the gift.
