Many popular apps including Spotify, PUBG Mobile, Tinder, and Pinterest crash due to a Facebook issue

Today, many popular apps like Spotify, PUBG Mobile, Tinder, and Pinterest crashed on iOS devices. This was due to a bug in Facebook, and all the apps in which you used your Facebook account to log in were affected.

People who logged in to all these popular apps were not able to access their accounts, and users rushed on Twitter to mention and resolve their issue by tagging many official handles. Many handles also responded to the tweets and assured them that issue would be resolved soon.

Soon enough, the issue was addressed by Facebook, and they fixed it in no time. The outages’ cause seems to have been Facebook’s software development kit, or SDK, which many apps use to manage user logins.

Facebook acknowledged on its developer platform this morning that its software was causing problems. “We are aware and investigating an increase in errors on the iOS SDK, which is causing some apps to crash,” said the firm.

By around 9:30 AM ET, though, most users were reporting that the apps were working again, and by 10:30 AM ET Facebook had marked the issue as “resolved.”

A company spokesperson told The Verge through email that “Earlier today, a code change triggered crashes for some iOS apps using the Facebook SDK. We identified the issue quickly and resolved it. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
