Some Facebook users are seeing the light today (May 26). And they’re none too pleased about it.
A significant number of users are taking to social media to report that they no longer have access to the Dark Mode feature in Facebook. That’s the view that swaps in a dark background in lieu of a white interface, which some people find easier to read. Dark Mode can also consume less battery life.
Jump on Twitter right now, and it won’t take you long to find users complaining that Dark Mode on Facebook is unavailable. Most of the tweets noting that Dark Mode was gone began appearing at around 5 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Dark Mode hasn’t disappeared from everyone’s phone. We’ve checked among Tom’s Guide staffers and everyone we’ve surveyed has been able to turn on Dark Mode on their iPhone or Android device.
So far there’s no explanation as to what’s happening with Dark Mode and Facebook, but this isn’t the first time in recent weeks that the problem has flared up. On May 5, some Android users reported a similar issue with Dark Mode in Facebook.
We’ll reach out to Facebook and ask what’s up and whether there’s a solution, short of deleting Facebook, reinstalling it and hoping like heck that the Dark Mode feature has restored itself.
You can activate Facebook’s Dark Mode by going to the hamburger icon menu in the mobile app, selecting Settings & Privacy and heading to Dark Mode.
