Facebook represents itself as the largest social media network on this planet. It boasts to have over a billion users worldwide and more than 800 million active users daily. With this huge number of users, the most searched question is “How to hack a Facebook account?” Security becomes a priority of every user who wants to protect their personal information.
But as a matter of fact, security is an illusion on the internet.
There are only a few people that can actually ‘hack’ a Facebook account so there are no straight answers to the question that how can someone hack a Facebook account. However, over the time and after experimenting for years now, internet users have found some tricks that may work. Those tricks include phishing, key logging, and password jacking and stealing cookies.
So let me discuss these methods one by one to crack a Facebook account:
Phishing is a hacking method in which the hacker tries to learn information such as login credentials. The reason for its popularity is its ease of use. A common man with little technical know-how can get do it. Many people have become a victim of Phishing page due to its trustworthy layout and appearance.
How does the phishing work?
Simply put, phishing is a process of creating a duplicate copy of a reputed website with the intention of stealing the user’s password. The hacker creates a page that resembles the Facebook login page but with a different URL like faecbook.com or fakebook.com or any such URLs that appear to be legit. When the user lands on such a page, not knowing that it’s not the real page, he/she will enter his/her username and password. This information is then sent back to the hacker who created this page while at the same time the victim is redirected to the original Facebook page. That’s why phishing is popular with the hackers as it is far easier to trick someone into clicking a malicious link than trying to hack someone’s computer.
It is a spyware that records every click and touch of a user. Keylogger is another potential weapon for the hackers that can be used to hack critical accounts information. This is done in a covert manner, you are usually unaware of being monitored. They are so dangerous that they can retrieve your account information, credit card numbers, passwords and other private data.
How does Keylogging work?
So the keylogger actually tracks the keys struck on your keyboard. This software is installed on victim’s computer, will record everything victim types on his/her computer. The logs are then sent back to the hacker by either FTP or directly to the hackers email address. They spread the same was as other malicious program and can enter your system when you open a file attachment that you received via email, text message or instant messenger.
- XNSPY: A Facebook hacking app
Usually, when we talk about hacking someone’s Facebook account, it is related to accessing the private information of a person. Obviously, no one is interested in checking their newsfeed. It’s actually about accessing their convos, friends and any multimedia they share that is generally done through Facebook instant messenger. You can’t keep waiting for the phishing attack’s success or any keylogger attempts. The easiest way would be to use XNSPY app to track someone else’s cell phone.
How does it work?
If we compare it to the former two methods, it is the easiest way to hack into someone’s cell phone. The user would need to access the target phone just one time. Once you install the app on the target phone it will provide you access to the Facebook Messenger messages.
But it offers more than just hacking into Facebook messenger. Once it is installed on the target phone, it allows you to hack into other major IMs including WhatsApp, Tinder, Instagram, and Skype. You can also perform other hacking operations. For example, you can record the person’s calls, you can see all their contacts and access their text messages. It is also an app to track someone else’s location via cell. It records all the location related information and sends the data back as in the form of location logs. Installing the app is easier and it is a more comprehensive option than any other available when it comes to hacking.
- Hacking through stealing cookies:
You may not be aware but some of your important information is stored in the files known as cookies. Cookies are saved during your online surfing. They often have your password information which could have been used while accessing a website. But the question arises how cookies can be used to hack a Facebook account? Well the answer is simple. The hackers can easily access the target’s account by cloning the cookies, tricking Facebook into thinking the hacker’s browser is already authenticated. By doing this you can hack into the person’s account.
- Password Jacking:
Password jacking is a ninja technique that can be done by anyone who is closer to the target person. This method works only if you know the target person’s important information like their email, phone number, date of birth, etc. By using this personal information you have to use hit and try method to guess the password. If this is not helpful then use any password guessing emulators to crack the Facebook password.
