Parse Facebook Utils for Android

Build Status License

A utility library to authenticate ParseUsers with the Facebook SDK. For more information, see our guide.


Add this in your root build.gradle file (not your module build.gradle file):

allprojects {
	repositories {
		maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }

Then, add the library to your project build.gradle

dependencies {
    implementation 'com.github.parse-community:ParseFacebookUtils-Android:latest.version.here'


Extensive docs can be found in the guide. The basic steps are:

// in Application.onCreate(); or somewhere similar

Within the activity where your user is going to log in with Facebook, include the following:

protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
  super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
  ParseFacebookUtils.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);

Then elsewhere, when your user taps the login button:

ParseFacebookUtils.logInWithReadPermissionsInBackground(this, permissions, new LogInCallback() {
  public void done(ParseUser user, ParseException err) {
    if (user == null) {
      Log.d("MyApp", "Uh oh. The user cancelled the Facebook login.");
    } else if (user.isNew()) {
      Log.d("MyApp", "User signed up and logged in through Facebook!");
    } else {
      Log.d("MyApp", "User logged in through Facebook!");
