Facebook is a Social Network that provides you with the opportunity of having fun and staying in touch with your friends and family. You should be aware of how to protect your Facebook account from being hacked. Lately, hackers developed many ways of doing so. That is why it is very important to use the appropriate Security Tools you have at hand on this Social Network.
How can someone hack your Facebook password?
You must be probably wondering how can someone hack your Facebook account and why would they do it. Nowadays there are many different ways of hacking Facebook accounts and someone can do this from their own home.
One of the most popular methods of having a Facebook account hacked is by using an online hacking tool. It means that someone only needs your Facebook URL and once they copy/paste it in the online hacking tool, they will get access to your personal credentials. It’s simple and easy: hackers do not even need to download a program. Everything happens online and the hack tool can be used on any device.
Moving on, another way of having a Facebook account hacked is by actually using a program. For example, hackers have iStealer 6.3 at hand and they can install it to steal your personal Facebook credentials. You can read all about this method in a previous tutorial I’ve written for you: How hackers hack any Facebook & Instagram account with Istealer 6.3. That way you will know exactly what to avoid.
Scam Pages: a very tricky of the way of stealing your Facebook credentials. Did you know that someone can get in control over your Facebook account by creating a page that resembles the original one? All that hackers need to do is to create a scam page and then they will be able to play with your Facebook credentials as they want.
The hacking methods list does not stop here. Hackers can also use the Brute Force Technology to get in control over your Facebook credentials. My advice is for you to be very well informed and read the full article on Top 5 Facebook Password Hacks: you will find out more about the most used methods someone can use to hack your Facebook account.
Facebook Security Tools
Facebook provides you with interesting Security Tools that I strongly recommend you to use. Once you access your Facebook account, just click on the drop down arrow in the upper right side of this Social Network and click on Settings. You will then see the General Task Bar on the left side. Click on the Security section and you will be able to play around and make sure you have your personal account protected.
- Constantly change your personal password
You should constantly change your personal password and create a strong one each time. It’s always best to combine letters with numbers, as this will make it more difficult for someone to crack it. I also recommend you not to use the same password for multiple accounts because for example, if someone cracks your Facebook password and you have the same one for other Social Networks, such as Instagram then you will make the hacker happy. He will get in control over your personal credentials for more than one account.
- Unrecognised logins
Facebook is so smart that it tells you if someone got connected to your Facebook account by using a device you do not generally use. Let’s say you are usually using your personal computer and your Android device. If some access your Facebook account from a Microsoft device, then Facebook will let you know about this.
- Two-factor authentication
You are usually using just your password to log into your Facebook account, right? What if I told you there is another way as well? A more secure one? You can now start using the two-factor authentication.
Text message, security keys, code generator, recovery codes, app passwords, authorized logins: all these might represent the second authentication factor you can use to protect your Facebook account. To be more specific, you can insert your personal password and by selecting the text message option, it means that each time you log into your Facebook account, you will also get an SMS with a security code to insert on Facebook. This way you will be two times sure your account is being safe.
- Do not forget to log out
Sometimes you might use your Facebook account on the computer you are using at work or maybe you just visit a friend and you use their laptop. Never forget to log out before leaving, as if you do not do this, you might provide other people with your personal credentials and I am sure this is not what you want.
You should also consider using the Security Tools to protect your Instagram account from being hacked. This is another Social Network that more and more people are starting to use and hackers might think it would be funny to get in control of your personal Instagram credentials.
Take care of your personal accounts and avoid other people getting in control over your credentials. You deserve to enjoy the Social Networks without having to worry that someone might steal your account.
