How to Stop Hackers From Getting Into Facebook Accounts

The first thing to do if you think your Facebook account has been compromised is to change your password. Then, if you are using Facebook to sign in to apps such as Spotify or Instagram change your logins too. This will stop hackers from accessing these third-party services through your hacked Facebook account.

A hacked Facebook account can offer hackers access to a wealth of personal information. Hackers could make use of the information for malicious purposes such as spamming people or sending fake credit card offers. They can also use the compromised account to send spammy messages to friends, or post on your timeline with your name (as in the case that you did it yourself).

Hackers are more likely to gain access to accounts by exploiting a flaw within the Facebook application code. A flaw in the iOS Facebook app allows hackers to steal cookies, and steal the “access token” of an iPhone user. These tokens are digital keys, allow them full control over the user’s Facebook Account, as well as any other websites they visit with their Facebook credentials.

A hacker can also gain access to a user’s account by using brute force attacks. This technique involves guessing passwords, mostly the most popular ones such as 1234567890 and 123456789. Hackers gain access to accounts by scanning compromised credentials. There are many free tools that can be used to search for stolen data, such as the popular website HaveIBeenPwned.
