I have no facebook account, and I'm not using the facebook app; I can't even find any facebook app any more. Still Android's log is flooded by messages from com.facebook.appmanager:

java.lang.SecurityException: Caller com.facebook.appmanager needs to hold android.permission.SCHEDULE_EXACT_ALARM to set exact alarms.

However I don't find any active app to disable or stop.

How can I get rid of that process?

If you want to uninstall the app, you could do that via the adb shell, as described here


  1. connect phone to a computer with adb installed, and check connectivity with adb devices in a terminal
  2. Once it finds a device, start an adb shell by entering adb shell
  3. Search package with pm list packages | grep 'facebook'
  4. Remove: pm uninstall -k --user 0 <pkg found above>
