You might have asked this question so many times – “How to hack Facebook”. You may have so many reasons- good or bad. But I want you to understand this. Facebook servers are secure, much secure than so many other servers. But the strength of a chain is the strength of the weakest ring. In this case it is the user. The engineers/programmers can make the servers and service as secure as possible. But everything depends upon the users those who are aware of security issues and those who are not-the mixed world.
There different ways of penetrating into a Facebook account. Those are
1) Using a key logger you can get both username and password of any user
3) In some cases, the password will be as simple as the mobile number, name-mobile number combination, name and year of birth combination. Just guess and try it
But there is a cool security feature which is going to be discussed here. You can read what Facebook says about it here – https://www.facebook.com/help/?page=228169557197326
This feature is called three friend account recovery. This enables you to regain control of your account through three trusted friends. The procedure is simple.
Step 1: Go to Facebook and select “forgot password”
Step 2: Give email address/mobile number in below shown field
Then you will be asked to confirm the user profile. Just confirm it by clicking ‘this is my account’. (It just gonna be..!)
Step 3: From the coming page select “No longer have access to these”
Step 4: In the next page, you will be asked to answer the security question. No problem, give wrong answer three times. Now the stage is set for you.
Step 5: Now you are in three friend account recovery form. You are asked to select three friends whom you do trust and can be contacted via phone. Select the three friends and Facebook will send password recovery codes to those three friends. You are supposed to call those friends and get the codes. And now you can enter the three codes to reset the password.
Step 6: Reset the password
But what is the big deal in this ?????????????
Yes, there is..
To hack any account what you need is THREE FAKE IDs…
Create three fake ids. These accounts must not be friends each other(as you like. It is not a must). And don’t forget to assign mobile numbers. Assigning mobile number is very important. Otherwise the fake id will not be listed in the ‘trusted friends’ list. Make these fake ids friends of the victim profile. Have some status updates, like and all. Waite for some days..!
Before you do this be aware of two things. If you reset the the password of an id using this technique the profile will remain locked for 24 hours. Facebook will send an email to the addresses coupled with the attacked profile along with the names of the friends participated in the recovery process. So, when you do this make sure that the victim will not log-in for 24 hours.
Rest is up to you..!
