We investigated the issue and fixed it for everyone earlier today. We're sorry for the inconvenience."The problem began on Friday, with users on the r/Facebook Reddit board reporting they were receiving "sign-in" prompts from their Facebook apps, but they had not signed out.

Most of them were able to log back in, but the authentication codes needed were taking a long time to reach users due to the glitch
