Facebook is the most widely used social network in the world, and that is why it is the target of many cyber attacks that secure our personal data.
Whether it’s as revenge, or simply because someone wants to watch our conversations for some evil purpose, it’s possible that they want to hack our Facebook and we end up being victims of some kind of hacking and we may be left without access to our account.
In order to protect you from these attacks, let’s analyze the methods that work today and are used by many hackers around the world to get private accounts.
Clarify that all these methods are 100% legal. We don’t promote fraudulent tools here!
🤷 What are you looking for if you want to hack into your Facebook account?
Although it may seem easy to understand, the truth is that each person has a different idea about what it’s like to hack Facebook.
The main purpose of any method of hacking into this social network, or any other, is to get hold of a victim’s access data (i.e., we will become the owner of their account, even if only temporarily).
In general, the methods to know how to hack Facebook are nourished by some vulnerabilities that exist in the social network. The administrators of the same one review the code to find them and to solve them for a new revision.
🤔 Can you really hack into Facebook?
Bearing in mind that not everything on the Internet is what it seems, we would have to start by asking ourselves if something can really be done about Facebook. If we do a related search on Google, the first thing we’ll find will be millions of related entries. Does this mean that Facebook is vulnerable?
Yes and no. The truth is that many of these pages are fraudulent: the most common thing is that we are offered some kind of program that does not work, and is that either we will be charged for something that does not go, or directly we will be the victims of hacking when we enter our personal data in the application.
The most common way to hack Facebook is through what is known as an exploit. We are talking about a resource that is nothing more than a piece of code that has been written by professionals in the world of programming with the aim of exploiting the vulnerabilities that exist in the social network. They are usually in charge of opening an additional page in which the user will have to put his data; once he has done it, these will arrive in a comfortable way to the hacker’s mail, reason why he will only have to use them to enter.
We have to be especially careful about something like this. They can steal our account in seconds, so be especially careful with this fraudulent trick!
👉 The most used methods
Hacking Facebook by accessing the victim’s email
This is the simplest and most effective method.
To start this method the only thing you need to know is the mail in your account; furthermore, your username should also be available because otherwise it won’t work. The hacker will create the fake email, try to log in to the social network, use that email and give it to the “I forgot my password” option.
All you have to do is log in to the mail to get the code in question. You can then enter it in the corresponding box and change the password to a new one.
This not only allows you to access the victim’s messages, but also allows you to keep your entire account.
Solution: Activate your email alert in case someone logs in through another PC.
Hack Facebook by accessing the victim’s PC Firefox browser
This trick is also quite simple, but they need to have physical access to the PC where the Facebook account in question is located. Another obvious requirement is also needed: you must log in to Facebook through Firefox.
If all these requirements are met, what they do is open the browser and access the “Security” options. Click on the “Saved Credentials” section, where you will find all the passwords that are normally used. They look for the Facebook section, they hit “Show Password”.
Solution: Don’t save passwords in your browser!
Hack your Facebook account with Google Chrome
Can you do the same on Google Chrome? Considering that this Internet browser is one of the most used right now, there is a much greater chance that the victim will use it. And yes, there is a method to be able to see the keys stored in this software.
We access the victim’s computer, open Google Chrome and go to the “settings” -> “Show advanced settings” option. Of all the extensive options that will appear, we are only interested in the section “passwords and forms”->”Manage passwords”.
In the same way as in the previous procedure, we will see all the pages that are visited on that computer with their corresponding password. Simply click on Facebook and click “Show”. The key will be revealed without an asterisk (*) and will be ours.
Solution: Don’t save your password in this browser either, remember it by heart!
Hack Facebook with Revealer Keylogger
Careful, because we’re entering a swampy terrain. If someone wants to compromise your account, this is a very effective trick, but in addition to knowing your Facebook password, you can know other very private data!
The aim of the program is to capture all the movements that the victim makes on your computer (usually the keys he is playing), but also monitors your PSN connections, both incoming and outgoing.
This method does not differ much from the previous ones, because the software will have to be installed on the victim’s PC. As soon as they have done so, the program will send us all the information that is collected.
Solution: Install and keep updated an antivirus on your PC
Hacking Facebook through cookies
The method of knowing the password through cookies is one of the most popular to date.
What exactly do they do? So they connect to our wifi and become a MITM (men in the middle); in other words, an intermediary user who will be responsible for capturing the information that circulates between the victim PC and the router.
Once you have done this, all you need to do is enter the developer panel of your browser and click on the cookies section. They keep a capture of this information and take the resulting file to another computer (remember it must be on the same WiFi network).
They then use special applications that install those cookies on the remote PC, allowing you to access your Facebook account as if you were us.
The biggest problem and difficulty that hackers have if they use this method is time, as cookies change quickly and need to be fast.
Solution: Delete cookies from time to time.
Backtrack is a sophisticated operating system based on Unix/Linux, and was designed precisely with the intention of doing security tests to find violations of different structures. People who know how to control their functions, become real hackers, not only of Facebook, but also of whatever they consider.
It has an endless number of applications that will analyze the system in question and look for a vulnerability or backdoor.
And how does it work? Basically create a web clone that will serve to deceive the victim. She will enter Facebook as she usually does and fill in her data without realizing that it is not the usual page. As soon as it does, Backtrack will collect all this information and send it to the hacker.
These are the most common methods used today to hack your Facebook account.
If you fear your account may be in danger from one of them, read on to find out how you can protect it.
🛡️ How can I protect my Facebook account from hacker attack?
Beware of the programs you download
Did you know that the vast majority of people who seek to hack someone else’s Facebook end up with their own hacked account? And this has its raison d’être: there are so many eagerness to get your account that they end up downloading any type of application.
As we’ve already seen, you can hack into Facebook, but it’s not something we’re going to get in a matter of seconds or just by clicking a button.
If you download software that doesn’t convince you, the best thing you can do is remove it as soon as possible. Even if it doesn’t ask for your password, it may be sweeping your PC to extract all your personal data in one fell swoop.
Antivirus will protect us from most keyloggers, Trojans, as well as any related malware.
This is why it is important not only to have a good antivirus, but also to keep it updated at all times.
There are studies that conclude that many times it is not necessary to complicate one’s life a lot to find the password to enter a person’s account, since most of us use a very simple pass. Some of the simplest ones are ‘1234’, ‘4321’, keys that have to do with our name, date of birth, DNI, etc.
It is crucial that the key we are using on Facebook does not have any personal data; if so, anyone in our environment with a little time and intelligence, could find the key in a matter of seconds.
Choose a password that has a minimum of 8 characters, combining both uppercase and lowercase, as well as numbers and some special character (such as $, %, /, &…).
Also, no matter how secure you think your password is, renew it regularly every 3 months or so and it will be impassable.
