1:- The use of Phishing
Hackers will try to send a link via email or any other source and let you know that your account is being hacked and you need to update your password. The page normally looks exactly like facebook so that the user can be misled to grab the password. This is one of the most commonly used method. In order to protect your account from phishing attacks, always look on the address bar of your browser to make sure that the website address is FaceBook.com. If there is any extra word, for example FaceBoook.com with additional “O” or FaceBooke.com with the word “E” at the end OR any other word, then this a phishing site.
2:- Third Party Apps
Another method to hack users personal information including passwords, hackers can use third party softwares bundled with keyloggers to track your keyboard buttons. This helps them to collect all the words you write on your keyboard. Thus any password, credit card information or any other information you type is stored by the hackers and can be used to hack into your facebook or other secure accounts.
3:- Reset the Password Method
Hackers can try to gain access to your facebook messages by hacking your password via the Reset the Passsword Method. For this method to work, they need to know the security answers you have entered during your facebook registration. They can obtain this info either via phishing or via third party apps.
There are several other ways hackers can hack your facebook or any other account. Make sure to use strong password, and keep your secret answer secure. Also don’t install third party apps without scanning them via a reliable anti virus software.
