  3. Click "Save".

Complete Step 6: Provide the Development and Release Key Hashes for Your App.

  1. Generate Development and Release keys as described in the documentation. Note: if your application uses Google Play App Signing then you should get certificate SHA-1 fingerprint from Google Play Console and convert it to base64
echo "{sha1key}" | xxd -r -p | openssl base64
  1. Add generated keys in Key Hashes.
  2. Click "Save".

⚠️ Important! You should add key hashes for every build variants. E.g. if you have CI/CD which build APK for testing with it's own cerificate (it may be auto generated debug cetificate or some another) than you should add it's key too.

<key>CFBundleURLTypes</key>
<array>
  <dict>
  <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key>
  <array>
    <string>fb[APP_ID]</string>
  </array>
  </dict>

⚠️ NOTE. Check if you already have CFBundleURLTypes or LSApplicationQueriesSchemes keys in your Info.plist. If you have, you should merge their values, instead of adding a duplicate key.

Skip Step 5 (Connect Your App Delegate) and all the rest.

And that's it for iOS.

Additional Facebook app setup

Go to My App on Facebook and select your application.

Icon

You should add the App Icon (in Settings -> Basic) to let users see your application icon instead of the default icon when they attempt to log in.

Add store IDs

In Setting -> Basic -> iOS fill up field "iPhone Store ID" ("iPad Store ID").

Optional settings

You may want to change some other settings. For example Display Name, Contact Email, Category, etc.

Enable application

By default, your application has the status "In development".

You should enable application before log in feature goes public.

Facebook will show a warning if your application is not fully set up. For example, you may need to provide a Privacy Policy. You can use your Privacy Policy from Google Play/App Store.

Usage in application

You can:

  • log in via Facebook;
  • get access token;
  • get user profile;
  • get user profile image url;
  • get user email (if has permissions);
  • check if logged in;
  • log out.

Sample code:

import 'package:flutter_login_facebook/flutter_login_facebook.dart';

// Create an instance of FacebookLogin
final fb = FacebookLogin();

// Log in
final res = await fb.logIn(permissions: [
  FacebookPermission.publicProfile,
  FacebookPermission.email,
]);

// Check result status
switch (res.status) {
  case FacebookLoginStatus.Success:
    // Logged in
    
    // Send access token to server for validation and auth
    final FacebookAccessToken accessToken = res.accessToken;
    print('Access token: ${accessToken.token}');

    // Get profile data
    final profile = await fb.getUserProfile();
    print('Hello, ${profile.name}! You ID: ${profile.userId}');

    // Get user profile image url
    final imageUrl = await fb.getProfileImageUrl(width: 100);
    print('Your profile image: $imageUrl');

    // Get email (since we request email permission)
    final email = await fb.getUserEmail();
    // But user can decline permission
    if (email != null)
      print('And your email is $email');

    break;
  case FacebookLoginStatus.Cancel:
    // User cancel log in
    break;
  case FacebookLoginStatus.Error:
    // Log in failed
    print('Error while log in: ${res.error}');
    break;
}
