If not then today I will show you something that will help you to secure your profile from any vulnerability there is the possibility.
Below methods will make you understand that how and which way the hackers and the regular folks can hack into someone’s Facebook profile without the owner’s concern, but don’t worry I will also explain to you how to make a prevention from getting hacked.
Methods1: How A Hacker Or A Tricker Hack Your Facebook Account
Reset The Password: The easiest way to hack someone’s FB account is by resetting the account password, basically, this method can only be done by a friend, because they are close to the victim and hacker somehow knows the basic information of the victim.
- The first move is to gain the victim’s Facebook login email address. If you don’t know then you can get it from the Contact Info Section of victim’s account.
- Now after getting the login ID you need to open the FB.com and then click on Forgotten Your Password? now type the victim’s email ID, now that account will appear click on that as “This is my account“.
- However, you are on resetting the FB password so for that Facebook will ask you to get the reset code via victim’s email, and you also know that you really don’t have access to the victim’s email account, so for that, you just need to click on “No Longer Have Access To These?“
- Now it will ask you “How Can We Reach You?” now type your email address which is not linked/connected with any of your Facebook accounts.
- Now Facebook will ask you a question on that same after screen, the question is just like quiz if you are not close to a victim that is better to guess the things and if luck with you then you can change the victim’s account password. There is another step below.
- If there is a problem in guessing the correct answers then you have to click on “Recover Your Account With Help From Friends“. Now there is a twist, you are allowed to choose between 3 to 5 friends.
- Suppose if you selected 3 people then Facebook will send codes to them and you need to ask them the keys as codes Facebook send them, next you will have to enter those three different codes and click on Submit Codes.
Now How To Protect Yourself From this Facebook Hacking
- Make sure that your login email address is not the public email address, which means, you should not reveal your FB login email address to anyone, also make your primary email address as hidden only you can see that, Make it specifically.
- Whenever you are on setting up things with security questions, make those question and answers hard for others to guess. Don’t select the birthplace, your pet name, no anniversaries neither your first love name.
- The last one is to recover your account if hacked, follow the same process how it hacked, you can ask your friends and set up the things and get your accounts back.
Methods2: How to use a Keylogger To Get User ID and Password
A very lethal application or software as keylogger, this is an application developed by hackers and software programmers, using this application you will get all the victim’s user ID’s and its passwords at the same time on your email address, basically, once the application installed on anyone’s computer the application itself is a stealth mode, which means it’s an invisible application runs background and not even the task manager will show you that this application is running.
So if users on that computer log in to any websites then it will record all the keystrokes, mainly the User ID and Passwords. This software is also capable of taking images, which can be controlled by another computer.
Steps to get installed and run keylogger successfully on victim’s computer.
- You can easily get the keylogger which is, of course, free, get it from CNET, some free keylogger really doesn’t work well so there is better to purchase one using Google and search for paid version of a keylogger to gain all its functionality.
Another One is 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 a bit higher than buying the software since you have the buy the USB drive with the program already on it.
Now How To Protect Yourself From this Keylogger?
- Using firewall is the first part you should do, keylogger usually sends information through the internet, so it will monitor all your internet activity also will sniff out anything suspicious.
- Password managers are the best if you don’t want to always type your login ID and password, just copy and paste the text and it will not be recorded in keylogger unless you type any keystrokes.
- Try to update your software and change your passwords bi-weekly, it’s extremely needed because if any information the hacker holds then it wouldn’t work and will be useless data.
