How to fix the ‘logging into Facebook from an embedded browser is disabled’ error?
1. Enable ‘Links open externally’ on Facebook
To resolve the issue of ‘Logging into Facebook from an embedded browser is disabled’, visit the Facebook account settings page to enable the ‘Links open externally’ option.
This ensures that whenever you try to open Facebook through a game or an app that uses an embedded browser, the error message would not pop up. Instead, you will be taken to an external browser.
