Now, Facebook is mysteriously logging people out: Details here
Amid major security concerns, another Facebook-related issue has come to the light.
Over the last few hours, several users of the social network have reported cases of being logged out of their accounts, automatically.
Some of them were able to log back in (including me), while others are failing to do so, the reports indicated.
Here's more on the matter.

Many failed to get back into their accounts, while others reported that the site had stopped working entirely.
Here's a screenshot of the issue:
@facebook I got logged out of my account on my laptop and now cannot log back in. My password is being rejected, and I tried resetting the password but I have not received the 6-digit code in my email. pic.twitter.com/3fwefaoYEE— Alexsander Akers (@a2) December 5, 2018

'Unexpected' error message
While trying to log back in, users got a message saying, "Unexpected error occurred. Please try logging in again". Many also tried resetting their passwords, but even that didn't work.
Users puzzled, no update from Facebook, yet
As automatic log-out was Facebook's way of resetting access tokens in the wake of a recent data breach, many users feared that their accounts have again been compromised.
However, this appears to be a rare technical issue rather than a hack or third-party interference.
So far, Facebook has not commented on the matter or what it is doing to fix the glitch.
