I just downloaded the Stack Exchange app from Play Store and when I tried to login there was no option to login with Facebook, am I missing something? Is it connected with OpenID?

I'm guessing your login screen looks like this:

no facebook installed

But if you have the official Facebook app installed, the login screen looks like this:

with Facebook app installed

Per Is Facebook an OpenID provider?, Facebook is not an OpenID provider. So you'll need to install the official Facebook app to login via Facebook in the Stack Exchange app.

  • I hope they fix this so it uses a Web view like all other apps do. – Jonathan May 16 '16 at 8:54
  • I have the official facebook app, but then also I am unable to login with facebook – Chirag Jain Dec 25 '17 at 18:14
