Here’s How To Solve Facebook’s iOS Bug From Crashing Apss Like Spotify, Pinterest, and Tinder

Yesterday, Facebook’s iOS SDK had caused some iPhone apps to crash. Users reported issues with Pinterest, Tinder, or Spotify. 

It’s not the first time this issue has occurred, it happened a couple of months ago also, but fortunately, there is a quick fix to it.

Keep in mind that developers have implemented the Facebook login through their own apps, so you don’t even need to have the Facebook app installed for other apps to crash.

The solution comes from a firewall and privacy protection app on iOS, Lockdown Apps, that blocks trackers like Facebook’s iOS SDK from loading in third-party apps, allowing the apps to launch during a Facebook iOS SDK outage.

The VPN based solution is totally free to use. Here’s how: 

  • Download Lockdown Apps from the App Store
  • Open the app and follow the on-screen tutorial
  • Choose the “firewall on” button at the top of the app
  • Set up a VPN profile on your iPhone
  • Toggle the VPN / firewall from within Lockdown Apps

By the time you are done, apps will now work freely and you can simply delete the Lockdown Apps, and the VPN profile will also be removed.
