How to fix Galaxy S10 5G Facebook keeps crashing | troubleshooting Facebook has stopped

If you’re looking for a way to fix Galaxy S10 5G Facebook keeps crashing issue, this troubleshooting guide is for you. Make sure to follow our suggestions below.

S10 5G Facebook keeps crashing fix #1: Force quit the app

If you find Facebook keeps crashing on your Galaxy S10 5G, the first troubleshooting step that you want to do is to force close the app. Sometimes, temporary glitch may develop in an app after an update or any coding changes in the operating system. Such bugs may go away when an app is refreshed though. To check if the problem is temporary, follow these steps to restart Facebook.

  1. On your screen, tap the Recent Apps soft key (the one with three vertical lines on the left of the Home button).
  2. Once the Recent Apps screen is shown, swipe left or right to look for the Instagram app. It should be here if you managed to run it previously. Then, swipe up on the app to close it. This should force close it. If it’s not there, simply tap the Close All app to also restart all apps.

Another way to force close an app is this:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Apps.
  3. Tap the More settings icon (three-dot icon, upper right).
  4. Tap Show system apps.
  5. Find and tap the Instagram app.
  6. Tap Force Stop.

S10 5G Facebook keeps crashing fix #2: Refresh the system

Should nothing happened after force closing the Facebook app, you should consider rebooting the device next. Temporary bugs may develop after your phone is left running for some time. To see if that’s the case, try to press and hold the Power button. From there, tap the Restart option to reboot. Or, you can press and hold the Power and Volume Down buttons for about 10 seconds. Once the phone has restarted, release the buttons. This is usually effective in clearing bugs that developed when a system is left running for some time. We suggest that you restart your S10 using this method at least once a week to lessen the chances of bugs.

For some Galaxy S10, there may be a slightly different way to arrive at the same method. Here’s how:

  1. Press and hold the Power + Volume Down buttons for approximately 10 seconds or until the device power cycles. Allow several seconds for the Maintenance Boot Mode screen to appear.
  2. From the Maintenance Boot Mode screen, select Normal Boot. You can use the volume buttons to cycle through the available options and the lower left button (below the volume buttons) to select. Wait for up to 90 seconds for the reset to complete.

By default, your S10 5G is calibrated to automatically install updates. All you need to do is to confirm the notifications to update. If you change the settings before including how your device manages updates, make sure to manually check for updates at this time.

Apps that require constant internet connection in order to work may encounter networking bugs from time to time. If you’ve been using mobile data to connect to the internet all the time, try to see if Facebook will continue to keep crashing when you use wifi. Visit your local library or try using your work wifi to check how Facebook works. If you rely on wifi all the time, reverse it and use mobile data instead.

At other times, uncommon glitches may occur as well as overall performance of the system may also be affected. To ensure that your S10 has good system cache, we suggest that you clear it once every few months. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
  3. When the green Android logo displays, release all keys (‘Installing system update’ will show for about 30 – 60 seconds before showing the Android system recovery menu options).
  4. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe cache partition’.
  5. Press Power button to select.
  6. Press the Volume down key until ‘yes’ is highlighted and press the Power button.

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap General management.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset network settings.
  5. Tap Reset settings to confirm.

S10 5G Facebook keeps crashing fix #9: Restart to Safe Mode

If Facebook is part of the pre-installed package of apps, you should consider running the device on Safe Mode. Sometimes, a poorly coded app or malware may interfere with Android and cause problems. To check if you have a third party app problem, restart the phone to safe mode. On safe mode, all third party apps, the ones you downloaded that did not come with the original software, will be suspended. So, if the problem comes from one of them, the problem you’re experiencing right now will not be available on safe mode. To boot the phone to safe mode:

  1. Turn the device off.
  2. Press and hold the Power key past the screen with the device name.
  3. When ‘SAMSUNG’ appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  4. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.
  5. Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting.
  6. Safe mode will display in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  7. Release the Volume down key when you see ‘Safe Mode’.

If Facebook app works normally on safe mode, you should investigate further. To identify the culprit, you can use the method of elimination. Here’s how:

  1. Boot to safe mode.
  2. Check for the problem.
  3. Once you’ve confirmed that a third party app is to blame, you can start uninstalling apps individually. We suggest that you begin with the most recent ones you added.
  4. After you uninstall an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem.
  5. If your S10 5G is still problematic, repeat steps 1-4.
