I'm not able to login with Facebook on apps. I use some apps that only allow to login with Facebook. When I tried to login I got a error popup Safari Cannot Open Page Because The Address Is Invalid.

Here's the screenshot from the error page:

Fix Safari Cannot Open Page 

So what is the solution for this error? How to fix this error on my iPhone?

I had the same issue in safari on my iphone 7 plus. It's actually a simple fix. Go to settings and into safari settings, there you can choose to clear browsing history and website data. By clearing everything it basically resets the safari app and allows you to go back into the app again. Hope this helps.

Here are the possible solutions to fix Safari Cannot Open Page Because The Address Is Invalid error on iPhone:

While surfing somewhere to watch The Walking Dead show, a message popped up to open my App Store. I hit cancel, then the screen turned red and said something like your machine is now infected with [something that I can't remember] followed by another link that said "click here to fix this error".  I called bullshit on the whole click here crap and clicked cancel.

The next thing I know I try to enter Safari and a message pops up "Cannot open page. Safari cannot open the page because the address is invalid".

I tried resetting my network settings, but I still cannot open Safari at all. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

I'm getting "Safari Cannot Open Page Because The Address Is Invalid." and after closing this alert I'm able to open or install app. I want to know that is there any issue from backend and if issue exits then what is the issue and what is the problem.?

I just fixed the same problem on an iphone. Go to settings> General> Restrictions> Safari. Make sure it is "allowed" or turned on (swipe to green). Exit out of settings and retry. It should work.

WTF does Fakebook have to do with Safari functions?  Can someone have a rotten apple device and not subscribe to Fakebook?
