Despite being solved, the drop in applications left many people complaining on social networks

This Friday morning, 10, users of the iOS operating system, of the iPhone, reported difficulties accessing applications due to a failure in the login system of the apps with Facebook. According to Mark Zuckerberg's company, the error was in a development software (SDK), which many platforms use to connect the Facebook account with their own social network. In Brazil, users reported on Twitter the fall of apps like Spotify, Pinterest, Nubank, Waze and Tinder. The problem has now been resolved.

After the complaints, the software was analyzed by Facebook after the complaints and a flaw was detected that reached only iOS users. "We are aware of and investigating an increase in errors in Apple's iOS SDK, which is causing some applications to crash," the company said.

Although it was a few hours' problem, it was not the first time that the Facebook SDK had a problem and brought down several apps this year. According to the American website The Verge, the same software also had problems in May. According to an expert consulted by the site at the time, the tool tends to cause problems for other apps whenever there is a failure on Facebook and is offered to platforms as a kind of convenience that allows you to track the conversions of advertisements made on the social network.
