Facebook Hacked Account Help | How to recover your Facebook – Hacked social media accounts isn’t in any way a new thing to the world. Quite a number of hacked account cases have been recorded on just Facebook alone.
These hacks are neither Facebook’s fault nor the users’. The problem stems from being ignorant about information being given out.
Although few accounts have been hacked without access to any sensitive information, possessing said sensitive information to an account makes hacking it a cake walk.
Most Facebook accounts which have been hacked happened as a result of users’ personal information leak. Such info may include:
- Log in details (Username and Password)
- Users security details
An activity which opens one’s account up to hacking is signing in with multiple devices. Signing in to your account using multiple devices in it’s way isn’t a bad thing, but becomes unsafe when some of these devices are not yours and you save your login details after the sign in.
When someone has your info he/she can easily take over your account without having the slightest idea about hacking.
If someone by chance knows your sign-in email alone, it is more than enough information to get your Facebook account hacked.
With access to your email account, all they need do is visit Facebook sign in page, input your email and deliberately enter the wrong password.
After this, Facebook will give them the “Forgot Password” option. With this option, they can change the password. However, it won’t be authenticated until it’s been verified.
Facebook will send a verification link to your email and given that they have access to your email account, they can verify the password and take over your account.
