    I have an ipad, running the latest version of the facebook app.

    When I go to log out of my account, from the facebook app itself, I see someone else's account as an option to log into as well as my own. I do not know the password of this account. I cannot see any option to remove this account, no cross or edit button.

    Nothing from the settings app has helped. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling facebook.

    Please will someone provide me with instructions as to how I remove this account.

    Thank you.

    A wholly unhelpful answer. You'll notice that this question was posted in the iPad section.

    If someone ever logged into a Facebook account on your device before there would be such suggestions...
    probably the only solution is to "erase everything" and restore from backup to remove that unknown Facebook account.

    Other than simply erasing everything there must surely be a solution that allows me to remove the option to login to this account?

    Such info is often stored in a file on iOS file system that is not accessible without jailbreak. Given how "removing app" on Mac OS X works, iOS would not delete everything coming along with an app if that app is deleted from device.
    A clean wipe could maximize the chance such file will surely be removed.
    BTW, I saw a similar phantom on one local bank app, which instructing me to add a credit card I have no idea about. That "card" is gone after erasing everything.

    So we are in agreement that there is a bug that basically means that the account is entirely stubborn and unless facebook updates the app, this is normal behaviour?
