I can access FB by using a browser, but not the app. When I open the app it says enter the password for mrallank. I can also access FB through the app on my iPhone. I can enter my current password and it says that it's incorrect but it won't let me create a new one. When I use my phone or computer I can sign out and sign back in with my current password but no such luck on my IPad mini. Maybe in the past, a username and password got hing up some how. Meaning, I probably tried changing an old password because it was forgotten. Can any one help me solve this problem?

I deleted it from my screen then re downloaded it. I'll go to settings on my IPad and see if I can delete FB then go get it fresh from the AppStore. I think this is what you're telling me Thanks

I'm working on it. I did find something. I don't have a set username. That probably won't fix it but I'm working it

I can hit delete account in settings but it doesn't delete the account. It's almost as if FB won't let me delete it.

One of two things will happen. I'll get so mad that I sling my IPad into the pool or I'll stumble across the answer one second before I lose it

Hey MM. I've actually tried that in the past but nothing happens. I'll get a screen shot of it
You say you most likely changed your password in the past. Are you trying to login on the FB app with your current password that you're able to sign in with on your computer?

Is the FB app updated via the App Store?

MM. I'm wondering if I need to see if there is something I should do on my computer/ Mac and see blah blah blah. Thanks. I'll fire up the Mac book pro

What email address does it show in your settings for Facebook log in? Is it correct to what you have used before? My Wife's account got messed up that way, and she was having to log in with name.name@facebook.com, rather than the gmail address it was supposed to be. I went into settings and changed the email address for log in. It worked fine afterwards.

I think I'm gonna take my IPad to the apple store. This thing may even have a virus. I bought it in dec. and it crashes all the time. That could have something to do with this issue

Restoring it to factory settings will fix it. It's definitely not a virus.
