Solution to Facebook iPhone App “No Internet Connection. Try Again.” problem

After trying out DK’s workaround solution on Facebook iPhone App Version 3.4.1 which did not work on him either, we have found the another common thing that we select on Facebook – Secure Browsing.

After disabling secure browsing, now our newsfeeds are both working. You may wish to try this!

Solution to Facebook iPhone App “No Internet Connection. Try Again.” problem

  1. Access to Facebook.com via Safari. Go to account on the top right corner and select “Account Settings”. Uncheck “Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible” under Account Security
  2. Go to Facebook app’s dashboard and go to Account on the top left corner and select Help Center
  3. Login to your account and remember to check “Keep me logged in”

Hope this helps!

Please note that by disabling secure browsing, the data transacting between your computer and Facebook is not encrypted.

    Thanks for the Tip! Am waiting for Facebook to come up with a solution of their own. The thing that puzzles me is why this problem suddenly appeared of its own accord

    In Singapore, it seems to be affecting only SingTel users. Hopefully the bug will be solved soon and we can switch back our secure browsing!

    @Navin: Did you try disabling secure browsing and perform the above steps?

    Tried that…you would need to access account settings directly from the Facebook app. I checked and unchecked the security settings then saved it. If I don’t exit the app, it is ok. Once you close and exit the app, you are back to square one.

    @Jennifer: I’m sorry to hear that… But I guess this works for most people and probably not all.
