Fixing push notifications for the Facebook app on iOS

Every now and again, push notifications would stop working on the Facebook app on my iPhone.

Previously I had completely removed and re-installed the app and that fixed the problem, but i’ve discovered an easier and quicker way to fix them up.

  1. Go into Settings.
  2. Tap on Facebook.
  3. Tap on Push Notifications.
  4. Turn all the sliders off.
  5. Go back a screen.
  6. Tap on Push Notifications again.
  7. Turn the features you want notifications for back on.
  8. Go back a screen.

I did get a bit paranoid and exited the push notification settings after turning them off then went back in as i’m not sure if the settings are saved immediately or not. That fixed it for me. I hope it does the same for you too.

Let me know if this helps.
