What To Do If Facebook Keeps Crashing on Galaxy Tab S6

In this troubleshooting guide, we will show you what to do if Facebook keeps crashing on your Galaxy Tab S6. You will also learn the possible reason why apps crash and how to prevent them from crashing again in the future. So read on to learn more. 

Facebook is being updated regularly to make sure it works smoothly. However, there are users who reported that the app started to keep crashing on their devices. So if you’re one of the users that encountered this problem, here’s what you should do: 

First solution: Close Facebook and Force Restart your tablet

It is not clear at this point what causes the app to crash. Perhaps it’s just a minor issue with Facebook, or there’s a problem with the firmware. The first thing you need to do is reload the app and refresh your device’s memory. Here’s how you do that: 

  1. Tap the Recent Apps key at the lower left corner of the screen. 
  2. Now tap Close all to force close all the apps that run in the background. 
  3. To force restart your tablet, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key for 10 seconds. This will trigger the device to shut down and power back up. 
  4. When the logo shows, release both keys and wait until the reboot is finished. 

Once the restart is done, open Facebook and see if it still crashes. 

Second solution: Clear Facebook’s cache and data

If the first solution failed, then what you need to do next is to reset the app. An app reset is basically just deleting its cache and data files so that they will be replaced. Most of the time, this will fix most app-related problems. Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Go to the screen where you can find Facebook’s icon. 
  2. Tap and hold on it until the options pop up. 
  3. Tap App info, and then tap Storage. 
  4. Touch Clear cache at the bottom of the screen. 
  5. Tap Clear data and tap OK to confirm. 

After doing this, open the app once again to see if Facebook keeps crashing still. 

Third solution: Uninstall Facebook and reinstall it

If the app reset didn’t fix the problem, then you have no other choice but to reinstall the app. This will remove the app’s installation files from your phone, and reinstalling it will make sure you’re using the latest version. Here’s how you do that: 

  1. Go to the screen where you can find Facebook’s icon. 
  2. Tap and hold on it until the options pop up. 
  3. Tap Uninstall, and then tap OK to confirm. 
  4. Once it’s uninstalled, launch the Play Store. 
  5. Search for Facebook, and then tap the Install button. 
  6. Wait for the installation to finish, and then tap the Open button to launch it. 

When it comes to fixing app issues, this procedure will most likely fix them. However, if the problem persists or occurs every now and then, then you have no other choice but to reset your tablet. 

Fourth solution: Factory reset your Tab S6

A factory reset can fix any app-related problems including firmware issues that cause apps to crash. Most of the time, when an app issue–like this one–isn’t fixed by any of the solutions above, the problem is with the firmware. And most likely, there are other apps that also crash. 

So it’s important at this point that you do the factory reset. However, make sure to create a backup of your important files before doing it. When you’re ready, follow these steps to reset your tablet: 

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and then tap the Settings icon. 
  2. Find and tap General management. 
  3. Touch Reset. 
  4. Tap Factory data reset. 
  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and tap Reset. 
  6. If prompted, enter your PIN, Password or Pattern. 
  7. Tap Delete all.
  8. Enter the password of your Samsung account to verify your identity, and tap Done. 

After the reset, set up your Galaxy Tab S6 as a new device. 

And that’s what to do if Facebook keeps crashing on your Galaxy Tab S6 or any smartphone for that matter. We hope that this simple troubleshooting guide can help you one way or the other.
