    In a very distance past I used to have Facebook. And so the app installed. I rarely do a fresh install on iOS, so it is always a backup restore.

    I said goodbye to Facebook a long long time ago. But after the iOS 8.1 update yesterday, this happened.

    In the settings, privacy, location settings, the Facebook app reappears. I have no clue how this happened.
    To make it even better. In the iTunes App Store I deleted the Facebook App from my purchases. So if I go to the Apps Store I need to re-purchase this free app before install.

    Has anyone else have old deleted apps reappearing in the settings menu?

    This is because Facebook is hooked into the operating system.

    I don't think that's it because mine doesn't display it.

    Well, at least you tried to help.
    But none of the above did. Of course I tried a reset and all. Weird thing is I haven't used Facebook for over 2 years on the phone.

    Well in the reset menu there is an item to reset location and privacy. I did that and it's gone from the list.

    Where it isn't clear it is gone from the phone or not. I think the best to do is, to execute a fresh install.
    But that takes a lot of time. Unfortunately.
