How to Log Out of Facebook on All Devices

With so many devices and so many social media accounts, it can be hard to remember where you are logged in to which accounts. To protect yourself from potential hacks, it’s a good idea to log out of social media sites, like Facebook, once you are done with your session, especially if you are using someone else’s device.

With so many devices and so many social media accounts, it can be hard to remember where you are logged in to which accounts. To protect yourself from potential hacks, it’s a good idea to log out of social media sites, like Facebook, once you are done with your session, especially if you are using someone else’s device.

But, if you forgot to log out, or suspect an unauthorized third-party login, you can still log out of all devices at once from your Facebook’s account settings. Let’s explore how this is done.

This is for devices running Facebook

In the Facebook app, tap the three horizontal lines menu. On an iPhone or iPad, this menu is at the bottom of the screen. On an Android phone, you will find this menu at the top-right corner of the display. Refer to below image:
