Question about Computers & Internet

I cannot sign into Facebook using http instead of https, is there a solution to this?

I was advised by Fixya to use http instead of https to sign into Facebook as I am having a problem playing my favourite game. The games url changes to just puzzled hearts and tells me that the site is not encrypted and that it is my connection that is insecure. This is kind of scrambled, I hope that I have explained myself clearly enough. I can reiterate if you do not understand. Thanks.

To change your secure browsing (https) setting on facebook:

  1. Go to your Security Settings ( > Settings > Security)
  2. Click the Secure Browsing section
  3. Check the box provided and save your changes
When you have secure browsing turned on, the address bar in your browser should begin with "https://"

Try another browser like Firefox or Google Chrome. You can get them INSTALLED at www.ninite.com. Just choose the browser or Browsers that you would like to try and then click INSTALL at the bottom of the page.
You might also download Combofix at http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/dl/6f63d3a6b48a6c8f6a0f9c7926e71db2/54ee0104/windows/security/anti-virus/c/combofix/ComboFix.exe
Run it and check for infections.

SOURCE: Facebook homepage not loading correctly (white screen)

You shouldn't be accessing facebook through HTTPS. Try adding facebook to your trusted zones by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", select the "Security" tab, click on "Trusted Sites" with the green check mark, type in "*.facebook.com" without the quotes and uncheck the box toward the bottom of the dialog. Now click add and you should see *.facebook.com in the list. Click "Close". Now click on the "Privacy" tab, and move the slider down to "Accept all cookies" Click "Apply" then "OK". Try facebook again.

Let me know if this works! :)

Please vote on my solution :D

Facebook does not use https by default yet and you will need to use http sign in until it is a default setting or on the https sign in page you will need to set up all your info again.

Can't sign in on facebook on mobile


You must be able to receive text messages in order to sign up using a mobile number. If you are unable to receive text messages, or have trouble receiving one when you try to sign up with your mobile number, try registering using an email address instead. You can do this by clicking the "Register using your email" link on the sign up page on the mobile site, or by signing up on the computer.

If you are still experiencing issues, you can always try signing up on the full site by going to www.facebook.com

Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya! Hope I helped you with your problem.

Hey buddy,

Try using https:// instead of http://. For example -

Alternatively, put any restricted web site like Facebook in the below-given web site. It will take you through -

hello welcome to fixya. i hope u 'll be fine.
your facebook account is not oppening because u r entering wrong password or email address, first of all if u r not member then first become the member of facebook by signing up and if u r already a member but your account is not opening then first enter your correct email and password. you can check it in your mails too because face book also sent confirmation mail on your mailing address go there and access your face book account from there.
i hope your problem 'll b solved. Best of luck

Kindly keep thumbs up in do Rating
THANKS & Keep using fixya
