• I want to show a leaderboard of facebook friends scores in a game.
  • So I need access to the user_friends permission.
  • In order to get that permission I have to send a working build using that permission to facebook that they can review.
  • So I need to keep my app on facebook in development mode, and test it with test users so I can build this feature and get it working.
  • However when I build the game and try and login to facebook I get this...

enter image description here

  • It did not give me a chance to login as a test user or anyone else. I didnt log in at all, it just went straight to this screen when I requested login.
  • Now the solution for this error that I have found many instances of, is to set your app 'live'. But that wont work in my case.. I need the app the be in development mode so I can test this feature.. If the app is live no-one will have access to the user_friends permission including test users.

So this seems like a paradox. What can I do?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Have you ever signed into your personal or company Facebook account on this device before? It might be automatically using those saved credentials. Or if you've logged into the phone itself with a Google account, Facebook might have that Google ID linked to a particular FB account. \$\endgroup\$ – DMGregory Oct 3 '20 at 22:39
