During 2018 Facebook has had it’s fair share of controversies, but that doesn’t stop users setting up new accounts! Facebook broke record numbers during 2017 with over 1.94 billion monthly active users, that equates to an average 1.28 billion daily users (active users may i add! I wish this site achieved that haha!), hit like and we might lol!
Anyway in this day and age, whether we like it or not, our lives are commanded by pulling out our phone every 5 mins and pressing that social app we all hate to love (yes we are now a generation of nosey bastards!)… face it we can’t help ourselves!. We share our everything from the steak dinner we thought we just made good (crap) our birthdays, our new job, problems with our banks, relationships… you get the drift!.
The worst of it all is every year we share the death of a loved one, the places we missed, the memories from certain places. To a hacker the information freely given by yourself on Facebook is invaluable, in fact it is a ‘Gold mine’ so much so that clinical psychologists have written entire books detailing the surprisingly extensive impact Facebook has on our emotions and relationships.
*HINT* We are so used to the social life of Facebook that we sometimes forget who is watching!. This is not good, by a long stretch!
Facebook is used by over 1 billion people to date in 2018, out of those billion, you are looking at 1 million malicious entities!. You reveal what they can use against you freely!.
For example… They know when we’re not home! why? because Stacey just told Melissa
“Hey babe, can’t wait to double date at that new Italian in town! kisses xxx”
So a person with malicious intent, now knows you and your partners are going out for a meal!. JACKPOT, no one is home at both houses! This thief, robber, degenerate that has been watching you for a few days knows when to strike, and you made it easy as hell!
Anyway, lets get back on topic. The thing is that there is more cell phones than people these days, people are desensitized to technology more than ever. This ‘desensitization’ has led to a lapse in our basic understanding of security and privacy!
So much so that anyone can be a hacker these days, this professional hacker website will open your eyes to everything you thought you was safe using!
If your that way inclined to hack someones Facebook, all you need to do is download a simple piece of software (rather not say what it is for obvious reasons 🙂 ), create 3 fake accounts that your victim will add (i.e friends they interact with regularly, and copy their profiles) .
So basically all those weird friend requests you keep getting were for a reason! Then all you have to do is use those (fake) friends to send a code to (when you try to login in to the victims account, KEEP ON READING HOW EASY IT IS).
Here comes the dodgy as fuck bit!
Below i am about to show you how Facebook hacking is done, and how to stop yourself becoming a victim! Please read this! then again and again, to make sure you do NOT fall victim to this type of hacking!
Method 1: Reset the Password
The ‘Easy method’ works best if you are friends with the person you want to hack! (put your head down in shame, your not their friend!)
- The first step would be to get your friend’s Facebook email login. If you don’t already know it, try looking on their Facebook page in the Contact Info section. Still stuck? Hackers use scraping tools like TheHarvester to mine for email addresses, so check out our guide here to find a user’s email that you don’t already know.
- Next, click on Forgotten your password? and type in the victim’s email. Their account should come up. Click This is my account.
- It will ask if you would like to reset the password via the victim’s emails. This doesn’t help, so press No longer have access to these?
- It will now ask How can we reach you? Type in an email that you have that also isn’t linked to any other Facebook account.
- It will now ask you a question. If you’re close friends with the victim, that’s great. If you don’t know too much about them, make an educated guess. If you figure it out, you can change the password. Now you have to wait 24 hours to login to their account.
- If you don’t figure out the question, you can click on Recover your account with help from friends. This allows you to choose between three and five friends.
- It will send them passwords, which you may ask them for, and then type into the next page. You can either create three to five fake Facebook accounts and add your friend (especially if they just add anyone), or you can choose three to five close friends of yours that would be willing to give you the password.
How to Protect Yourself
- Use an email address specifically for your Facebook and don’t put that email address on your profile.
- Think about it! when choosing a security question, make it extremely difficult. So difficult, that the average ‘joe’ cannot type into google and find pet names, your mothers maiden name, your anniversary, hell, even your school! (do not use any of these!) Google yourself you will be surprised!
- Educate yourself about the Facebook feature ‘recovering your account from friends’ trust me you will thank me later!. You can select three trusted friends/family (make sure they are trusted!) you want the password sent to in case of a lockout/hack! . Once you set this up from Facebook, you can quite easily unlock your hacked account.
- This works because Facebook sends unique passwords to each or your selected friends or family. Genius! (Please set this up NOW!)
So what do i need to do to stop being hacked on Facebook and why?
You have read this far, so you might as well get the quick easy version!
All it takes to be hacked is…
- you adding 3 or more ‘fake’ friends/family.
- The hacker to figure out your account email (this is easy)
- try to login to your account then click ‘Forgotten password’
- Click no longer have access to email address
- send codes to 3 friends (the ones the hacker got you to add, which they made up)
- codes get sent to fake friends accounts
- hacker uses codes and gains full access to your account
Thanks for reading, please share with your friends and family to make them aware!
P.S. DO NOT ADD RANDOM FACEBOOK REQUESTS!My final thought 🙂
