Facebook photo albums not showing in mobile app fix

Are you missing some of your photo albums in the Facebook mobile app? If so, there’s a really simple fix to get them back into your mobile app.

Here are the steps to fix this:

  1. Login to Facebook.com through a browser on your phone, tablet, or desktop
  2. Navigate to your Profile
  3. Click on Photos
  4. Click on Albums
  5. Now go to an album that isn’t showing up in your mobile app and open that album
  6. Add a new picture
  7. Delete the new picture (optional)
  8. Go to your mobile app and check the photo albums section as you should now see that album
  9. Repeat steps 1-8 for all albums that aren’t showing

It sucks that you have to do this for each album, but if you’re annoyed by not seeing it in the Facebook app on your phone, then this is the only way that I found that will get an album to show up.

My guess is that during an update to the app a developer set a parameter to not show any albums that were updated prior to a specific date.

Leave me a comment to let me know if this helped you get your photo albums to show up in the Facebook app.

  1. Sorry, this did not work. On the app, I’ve also tried logging out of Facebook; uninstalling, clearing cache restarting and re-installing that has not worked. Interesting, all albums are public and you test allows me to create the album and add the pic. During the course of adding the pic to an album, I can select and even see them on the phone. But going back to my profile page, I see BIO, freinds and timeline.

    Very frustrating.

  2. Doesn’t work. All photos and albums missing from the App & there isn’t even a “Photos” selection in the menu dropdown.

    1. I’m having this same issue. I cant see other peoples photos uploads or albums either, only on a pc not my phone or tablet

  3. I tried it and it did work with one album. My only issue is that I have 47 albums and that is too much inconvenience on my part. Plus can’t seem to continue due to signal strength and it is too frustrating. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that didnt work. But your way did just not worth the time and effort for me. Developers need to fix the issue!

  4. Why can’t I see an album that I have been added as a contributor too. I contributed photos. Others in the group got the albums automatically but not me
