Error when logging in with Facebook

Hi! It’s my first time posting on this forum, so I’m sorry if this doesn’t belong here.

Anyway, I used to be able to log in with my Facebook account, but now I get an error: App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don’t have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions.

Has anyone encountered this error as well? How do I fix it? I really don’t want to lose all my progress on FCC.

Looking in to this and will see if i can get you some help

Hi, which site are you trying to access? The only site I know of that uses facebook to login is

I get this error when I try to log in on FreeCodeCamp.

The best thing to do is send an email to with your freecodecamp username and the error message that you are getting and someone will reply to assist you in helping you login.

I think I may have fixed this. Please try logging into using Facebook again and let me know whether it now works.

I no longer get that facebook error, but now I get an error on FCC saying that “Accounts can only be created using GitHub or though email”, even though I am trying to sign in, not to create an account.

OK - great! It’s fixed then. It sounds like you don’t have an account associated with your Facebook username. Can you email me at with your email address, freeCodeCamp username, and any other information you can include? I will try to track down your account.

I’ve sent you and email just now. Thanks a lot!
