Why does Digsby give login errors for Facebook and Hotmail?

Osama Javaid April 6, 2012

Digsby is a good IM client for PC, but I frequently get login errors for Facebook and Hotmail on it.

After installing it, for one or two days, it runs fine. After that I usually start getting login errors for Facebook or Hotmail. Although I approved the Digsby messenger in my Facebook account security settings. I set it to save my passwords too, but it happens frequently. What is the solution?

    I used to use Digsby a while back, but I kept encountering the same types of issues so I finally dropped Digsby for Trillian.  Sometimes it is caused by changes in the web services, but I have also seen it when there haven't been changes to the services as well.  I have never encountered a persistent error with Trillian and have been using it daily for over a year.  The only time I get error messages about loss of contact in any form to the associated services it has been due to my ISP dropping my internet connection.

    I always use Digsby and never faced any single problem.

    perhaps server address and port problem.

    Fix for Digsby’s Facebook authentication error and broken Facebook support

        perhaps a bug is in Digsby or a problem in your windows.
