How to Hack Facebook Account Or How To Protect Your Account From Being Hacked

Facebook Is one of ta widest network in today's world every body is using Facebook and every body wants to hack at least one Facebook .


In this post you will read how to hack  a Facebook  account and how to save your account from bieng hacked.
So let's start :




Method 1:


Reset the Password



The easiest way to "hack" into someone's Facebook is through resetting the password. This could be easier done by people who are friends with the person they're trying to hack.*

.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.*.

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.*.

When choosing a security question and answer, make it difficult.

 Make it so that no one can figure it out by simply going through your Facebook. No pet names, no anniversaries—not even third grade teacher's names. 

It's as easy as looking through a year book.*.

Learn about recovering your account from ds. You can select the three friends you want the password sent to. That way you can protect yourself from a friend and other mutual friends ganging up on you to get into your account.


                  Method 2:

Use a Keylogger Software 




keylogger is a program that can record each stroke on the keyboard that the user makes, most often without their knowledge.

 The software has to be downloaded manually on the victim's computer. It will automatically start capturing keystrokes as soon as the computer is turned on and remain undetected in the background. 

The software can be programmed to send you a summary of all the keystrokes via email.

CNET has Free Keylogger, which as the title suggests, is free. If this isn't what you're looking for, you can search for other free keyloggers or pay for one.

Hardware Keylogger::These work the same way as the software keylogger, except that a USB drive with the software needs to be connected to the victim's computer. The USB drive will save a summary of the keystrokes, so it's as simple as plugging it to your own computer and extracting the data. You can look through Keelog for prices, but it's bit higher than buying the software since you have the buy the USB drive with the program already on it.

How to Protect Yourself:


Use a firewall : Keyloggers usually send information through the internet, so a firewall will monitor your computer's online activity and sniff out anything suspicious.*.

Install a password manager: Keyloggers can't steal what you don't type. 

Password mangers automatically fill out important forms without you having to type anything in.*.

Update your software : Once a company knows of any exploitsin their software, they work on an update. Stay behind and you could be susceptible.

Change passwords:If you still don't feel protected, you can change your password bi-weekly. It may seem drastic, but it renders any information a hacker stole useless.

                         Method 3: 


                         Phishing


This option is much more difficult than the rest, but it is also the most common method to hack someone's account. The most popular type of phishing involves creating a fake login page. 

The page can be sent via email to your victim and will look exactly like the Facebook login page. If the victim logs in, the information will be sent to you instead of to Facebook. 

This process is difficult because you will need to create an account on web hosting sites and create fake login page.


Users are very careful now with logging into Facebook through other links, though, and email phishing filters are getting better every day, so that only adds to this already difficult process. 

But, it's still possible, especially if you clone the entire Facebook website.

How to Protect Yourself::


Don't click on links through email.

 If an email tells you to login to Facebook through a link, be wary. 

First check the URL.if you're still doubtful, go directly to the main website and login the way you usually do.*.



Phishing isn't only done through email. It can be any linkon any website / chat room / text message / etc. Even ads that pop up can be malicious. Don't click on any sketchy looking links that ask for your information.*.

Use anti-virus & web security software, like Norton or McAfee.
                  

                         Method 4: 

               Stealing Cookies


Cookies allow a website to store information on a user's hard drive and later retrieve it. These cookies contain important information used to track a session that a hacker can sniff out and steal if they are on the same Wi-Fi network as the victim.

They don't actually get the login passwords, but they can still access the victim's account by cloning the cookies, tricking Facebook into thinking the hacker's browser is already authenticated. via wikimedia.org
Firesheepis a Firefox add-on that sniffs web traffic on an open Wi-Fi connection. It collects the cookies and stores them in a tab on the side of the browser.From there, the hacker can click on the saved cookies and access the victim's account, as long as the victim is still logged in. Once the victim logs out, it is impossible for the hacker to access the account.

We will continue add more Facebook hacks in the near future, so keep coming back here.

How to Protect Yourself*.


On Facebook, go to your Account Settings and check under Security. Make sure Secure Browsing is enabled. Firesheep can't sniff out cookies over encrypted connections like HTTPS, so try to steer away from HTTP.*.

Full time SSL. Use Firefox add-ons such asHTTPS-Every where or Force-TLS.*.

Log off a website when you're done. Firesheep can't stay logged in to your account if youlog off.*.

Use only trustworthy Wi-Fi networks. A hacker can be sitting across from you at Starbucks and looking through your email without you knowing it.*.

Use a VPN : These protect against any side jacking from the same WiFi network, no matter what website you're on as all your network traffic will be encrypted all the way to your VPN provider.

Protecting Yourself: Less Is More Social networking websites are great ways to stay connected with old friends and meet new people. 

Creating an event, sending a birthday greeting and telling your parents you love them are all a couple of clicks away.

Facebook isn't something you need to steer away from, but you do need to be aware of your surroundings and make smart decisions about what you put up on your profile. The less information you give out on Facebook for everyone to see, the more difficult you make it for hackers.
