Using Facebook login on shared computers at school

When using Facebook login, a user stays logged in to Facebook in that web browser. To ensure that other users can log in after you on a shared computer, make sure to go to facebook.com and log yourself out of your Facebook account.


If you see a message that says “Unable to load Facebook” with a link to this page your computer didn’t successfully load the Facebook login system. The likely reason for this was just a bad internet connection at the time.

Please clear your browser’s cache, refresh the Quizlet home page, and try again. If the problem persists after doing this, either Facebook’s servers are having problems or your network is blocking access to Facebook. Contact your network administrator about this issue.

Why does Quizlet ask me for these?

Here's a quick rundown of the various Facebook permissions Quizlet requests, why we ask for them and what we use them for.

Quizlet will not post anything to your Facebook without your explicit consent!

Your basic info – This is the default permission that all apps on Facebook require. It provides us basic information like your name and profile photo. You should know that Quizlet does not access or request your other personal information, such as status updates, wall posts, interests, check-ins and current location.

Your email address – We need to be able to communicate important information to you regarding activity on Quizlet network. We do not sell email addresses. We won't spam you, and you can unsubscribe from our newsletter by going to Settings as soon as you login.Birthday-icon
