Pokémon Go Facebook Login Error – How To Fix

Why won't it work?

Trying to complete a simple task before continuing to play your game can be very frustrating, only for the action to fail. Connecting Facebook to Pokémon Go should be a quick thing to do, so something is obviously wrong if you get an error. Whether an app or server issues, try out these methods to get your game up and running.

Why won't Pokémon Go log in to Facebook?

The main reason you will not be able to complete the Pokémon Go and Facebook connection is that there are server issues on the part of Facebook or Pokémon Go. Sometimes it is the case that both services are down. It is also possible that the problem could be on your end. If your apps are not up to date, the app needs to be restarted, or your internet is having issues, these can all cause a login error. If the issue ends up being a server problem, you'll just have to be patient and wait for either Facebook or Niantic to solve this on their end.
