A Facebook account is a very important part of most peoples’ life, a place where they live a virtual life, connected with all their near and dear ones. Life events are added, frame of mind is laid bare, fun moments and crazy pics of fun times are shared among your closed ones. But what if you suddenly wake up and find you are no longer in control of your Facebook account? Facebook account getting hacked is a nightmare most people would prefer as a bad dream only. But if it becomes a dark reality, dont lose hope. There is a way you can hack a Facebook account, whether it it yours or of a close one (naughty people smiling eh?)
STEPS TO HACK A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT
While there might be many tricks that can work for the technically advanced, the trick mentioned below can help you hack into your own or someone else’s Facebook account with some ease.
1. Yep. I “forgot” my password
Click on the “forgotten your password” button above and proceed to the next step.
2. Find “Yourself”
You will prompted to “find yourself” on Facebook. Enter your username (fb.com/*****) and click on search. Alternately, you can enter your e-mail ID that you use to log into your Facebook account. You can also enter the mobile number registered with your account.
3. Reset Your Password Via E-Mail or Text
After searching yourself, you will find a window like shown above. You can choose either e-mail or text message form of verification, which will provide you a link to reset your password.
- If its not you, click on the “Not You?” link. However, if its you but dont have access to either e-mail or text form of verification, click on “No Longer Have Access To These?” link
4. Check For E-Mail prompt / Text Prompt
If you had chosen the text message verification process, you need to enter the verification code you received in the text, in the box above. You can also click on the link in the text message to reset your Facebook account password.
5. Provide Alternate Approach Method
But if you clicked on the “No Longer Have Access” link, you will be shown a window like this.
- You have to enter an e-mail ID/phone number that has NEVER BEEN USED with any Facebook account.
- Confirm the e-mail ID/phone number and click on continue.
6. Answer Your Security Question
This is the pre-final step. If its your own Facebook account, answering your own security question should be easy. If its not, its worth a try. If you are successful, a mail will be sent to you with a link for resetting the password.
7. Click On Link…and Wait 24 Hours
Wait. WHAT ??!! Yes. Once you successfully change your Facebook account password, you will have to wait for 24 hours to log-in again. But I guess its worth the wait, considering you almost lost it?
Hacking a Facebook Account – The Moral Question
Hacking a Facebook account can be a sort of moral dilemma, particularly if you know the person. Here is a debate on if its worth it or no.
Go for the hack
- It will be fun in finding what they may be hiding.
- Read chats they had with their partners/crushes.
- Make funny posts and post hilarious status updates.
Dont go for the hack
- There might be personal chats that you were not supposed to go through.
- You may find something that might put your relation in risk. Like he/she might be talking to your ex?
- Its ethically wrong. period.
Hacking A Facebook Account – BEWARE !!
While there are many ways of hacking a Facebook account like keylogger. phishing etc, the above method is one that I HAVE TRIED AND SUCCEEDED in. Hence, you can be sure that it will work (provided you can get past the security question )
However, while searching for ways to hack a Facebook account, I visited sites that had UDF2 converters and stuff that Facebook uses to encrypt their passwords. BEWARE !!!
- These sites will ask you to download software that converts UDF2 into plain text. This software (which doesn’t actually convert UDF2 into anything) is a part of a package that adds qvo6 virus into your system (more on removing it here coming soon…).
- While you are infected by the virus on one end (your anti-virus wont detect it anyways), you dont get any password on the other end. These “UDF2″ converters have codes that were leaked sometimes back, and not actual codes of the Facebook account of the person.
